Bass player and teacher extraordinaire Ed Friedland, who in addition to keeping an extensive teaching schedule plays upright bass in The Mavericks, brings along a solidbody uBass when he’e on the road in case something happens to his upright.
In a recent video with Geoff Chalmers of Discover Double Bass and Scott’s Bass Lessons, Ed says he keeps the uBass as a backup and calls it his “Plan C” in case something happens to his main bass. And he even brings it out to show Geoff.
You can catch the full video HERE. Ed talks about his uBass starting at 3:28.
