I can't seem to find anyone who's played one. Can anyone here give me the lowdown on these?
By now, has anyone played one...?
maybe this will help?
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?
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...
I owned a Ramirez bass, I used it mostly for latin music, where the bass needs a fatter and percussive sound.
