"If I wouldn't use a product on a gig, I won't sell it to you".
At Pete's Upright Bass Shop of Portland, we know that each player seeks their own unique sound, and we want to make the search a little bit easier.
We stock the time tested brands, as well as select "new" strings as they are developed.
Whether you play Classical, Jazz, Latin, Rock-a-billy, Bluegrass or any style in between, you'll find the best advice and products for any application.
Feel free to call me, or email with any questions.

I found Pete online. His shop is in a charming Southeast home. I was immediately impressed with his knowledge and the wide selection of basses. He took plenty of time with me and demonstrated basses and discussed options. Today we are going back to pick up our choice, with the promise of a proper setup and a sturdy bag. Pete is approachable and so helpful. He rents basses also. I will be back to his shop with my own bass; it could use some help.
