  1. Anyone out there have experiance with the Emminence EUB? In particular, how does it compare with an acoustic upright when unplugged?

    It's actually a pretty popular EUB here on the board. You can find a previous thread on the subject Here.
  3. Thanks, Chris, I found it. Caught the Watbacks the other night and found the Eminence to sound great amplified. Curious how it would hold it's own unplugged like at a bluegrass event (impromptu clusters jamming together).

    Not very well, I've found. I played one at at the Hugo, OK festival in a jam session - for a very short time. Could hardly hear myself. Sounded great through an AI amp.

    It's reasonably audible when played arco on the D and G strings. You'll need amplification for anything else.

    If I had the jing, I'd pick one up to use not only as an occasional gigging bass, but as a insomniac's practice bass.
