The unamplified sound of the Eminence is great for practising in the hotel room or if you have sensitively neighbours. Played amplified, the Eminence with its acoustic body sounds like a larger acoustic double bass.The Eminence has a detachable waist extension, and an anti-rotational endpin, the Steady-Foot. That's why it stays very easy in playing position. The string length of 105 cm (= 41-1/4") and a standard-size neck deliver a familiar playing feel and an easy transition from standard-size double bass to portable upright bass.
