Are you an ALTER EGO artist and have some nice news to share? Let us know.
Alter Ego will be the Official Solo Competition Sponsor of the 2015 Japan International Contrabass Festival.
SOLID BODY, HOLLOW BODY, or TRADITIONAL?
Which upright bass are you?
Our entire line of double basses is available at JD Hill Music shop.
Don’t miss the opportunity to try them all:
Festival of alternative, experimental and unformatted music.
Great two videos with bass player Valentin Korniyenko.
He definitely enjoys playing his babyEGO bass in a sitting position.
And some bowing too:
We are very excited to announce our very new tailpiece with afterlength tuning system (patent pending).
We mounted it on a traditional double bass. It is so satisfying!
Our tailpiece allows you to tune the section from the bridge to the tailpiece of each string: it’s a great system to remove wolf tones, improve tone, and give great resonance to the lower notes.
This tailpiece has a reduced mass, and it feels so great on your bow and fingers!
In the next weeks we are going to release several clips of bassist Gary Karr.
In these clips he talks about double basses with Jack Hill, ALTER EGO’s partner luthier in the USA. Gary also plays his newly acquired ALTER EGO traditional double bass with removable neck.
Jack Hill and Valentina Nardo, principal of ALTER EGO USA, met with Gary Karr in his house in Nevada in May 2014. Awaiting for more clips, here is Valentina’s intro.
