Electric double basses

The electric double bass (also known as electric double bass) is an electronically amplified version of the double bass that has a minimal or 'skeleton' body, which greatly reduces the size and weight of the instrument. It retains enough of the features of the double bass so that players are comfortable performing on it. While the electric double bass retains some of the tonal characteristics of the double bass, its electrically amplified nature also gives it its own unique sound.
