Ibanez is proud to introduce their first upright bass, the Bass Workshop UB804 Upright Bass. This design (34" scale length) allows for a smooth transition from bass guitar to this particular upright. Its conical compound fingerboard radius perfectly facilitates smooth bowing and fast plucking. The compact Maple body was designed to balance form and function, resulting in a bass that provides outstanding visuals and incredible playability. Despite its compact body, the UB804 does not sacrifice acoustic tone, projecting a robust natural sound. The smaller body also allows for quick and easy transport.

The AeroSilk Piezo system is a Piezo system exclusive to Ibanez that enhances the acoustic "upright" quality of the sound. We calibrated this system to provide optimal performance on our upright bass. Whether bowing or plucking, this specially modified piezo system detects the unique vibrations of each individual string and then equalizes the output level. Unlike traditional full size uprights, players don't have to adjust the electronics according to different playing styles. It enables players to switch their playing styles quickly and easily, which widens performance possibilities. Its simplified control layout has 1 volume and 1 tone control. The tone control offers a wide range of possible sounds so the UB804 can be used for any style of music.

The UB804 comes with a TAMA Roadpro hardware stand. TAMA's engineering designed the stand to securely hold the read more bass whilst delivering superior stability and durability. The subdued black color of the stand matches the mature nature of the UB804. The UB804 also comes with a padded gig bag that will carry everything: the bass itself, stand (included), and a bow (not included).
