Ray Ramirez EUB - Anybody tried one?

Discussion in 'Electric Upright Basses (EUB's) [DB]' started by XavierG, Jan 22, 2003.


  1. I can't seem to find anyone who's played one. Can anyone here give me the lowdown on these?

    I have been looking into getting a Ray Ramirez Carribean Series Elite EUB - I prefer how they look to any of the other Electric Uprights that I have seen.

    I play bluegrass bass and the feedback I have gotten from audiences is that they prefer the 'look' of a more traditional doghouse and are distracted by either an electric bass or EUB. For some folks if it doesn't look like a standup it doesn't sound like a standup. But the dilemma is how to travel with a 3/4 standup - the EUBs seems like a good compromise.

    I haven't tried a Ramirez yet - have you? Do you know anyone that travels with one and what their experience is like?

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the feedback everyone - I have decided to get an Eminence EUB. They are much more common and I was able to try them out before buying which is very important to me. Maybe in a couple of years I will look into the Ramirez again.

    Now for an amp...

    Cheers,

    I owned a Ramirez bass, I used it mostly for latin music, where the bass needs a fatter and percussive sound.
