It looks like most of the threads on here of "how do I get an EUB to sound like an upright" are primarily aimed at/by BG players trying to simulate the upright without the investment and size. I am interested in coming at it from the standpoint of already playing URB and I want something easier to haul and load in/out. I know it won't be a perfect sound match. When I try to search or look at sticky threads, all I come up with are extensive threads on extensive mods. (and there were two that rapidly turned into real firestorms...) I'm probably missing something, so if anyone can point me to a thread that gets close to answering my question, I would be grateful. ****Here it is: THE QUESTION: **** I would like a recommendation on a reasonable-priced EUB/pre-amp/string choice combo that does a reasonable job of filling in for an upright, without extensive mods other than pre-amp and string choice (and ***maybe*** a pickup change). I already know how to play URB (I'm not very experienced and I'm a work in progress, but that's not relevant to the question. I play with standard URB technique.) I want to play an EUB the same way I play URB, not to apply BG technique. Pizz is the main thing, limited interest in using an EUB for arco. Again, I won't be surprised if threads cover this topic, but I wasn't able to find the Cliffs Notes version that I would like to see. So please be gentle with me.
