The BSX Bass Allegro 5-String acoustic-electric upright bass is the best of both worlds. For tone, you get the depth and ring of an acoustic upright bass, with extremely flexible electronics. The multi-sensor piezo bridge system coupled with active circuit Bartolini electronics sounds extremely realistic both pizzicato and bowed. BSX Allegro Series feature a 3-band EQ, on-board preamp, and an individual volume control for each string. For looks, you get one of the coolest hybrids of classical styling and modern technology you've ever seen!

Comments about BSX Bass Allegro 5-String Acoustic-Electric Upright Bass:
I bought my Allegro 5 string directly from BSX around September 2007 and could not be happier with my purchase. I wanted to learn to play upright after 11 years of bass guitar and there was absolutely no comparison between the two instruments. This thing pounds, growls, and rumbles as well as being fully adjustable for different playing styles and techniques unplugged or not. As it is not appropriate for all styles of music that I play, what it does for the mix in my band when I do utilize it, is so much more than I ever expected when I purchased it. The 3-band active e.q. and independent string volume control make for very flexible sounds and make it vastly customizable. This bass is really fun to play, especially on massive p.a. systems in front of large crowds, and is aesthetically attractive. I always get complimented on this bass for a number of different reasons. Fantastic job BSX, and thanks again.
