    Hi, I am looking for an electric upright to possibly replace the acoustic double bass I use now. I don't play that many gigs, so it is mostly for practicing but I go between two houses so I want something that is very portable. What can you recommend that will feel and sound as close to a real upright as possible? I will decide on a price range once I see what is available, so for right now I am looking at all price ranges.
     
  2. Hi, and welcome on talkbass.
    I suggest you search the forum a bit. (the default view is one week, stickies aside)
    This question has been asked many times, so there are several threads about this issue.

    Best of luck in the search! :)

    Merchant Vertical Bass. I have had the non-folding version for 15ish years; it has stood up to hundreds of gigs, rough travel, and ill-advised experimentation, and still sounds and feels great.

    I like the BSX Allegro hollow body. For tone and feel it's pretty close to a UB...
