Double Bass

The double bass, or upright bass, also called the string bass, contrabass, bass viol, stand-up bass, bull fiddle or simply bass, is the largest and lowest-pitched bowed string instrument of the violin family in the modern symphony orchestra, with strings usually tuned to E1, A1, D2 and G2. The double bass is a standard member of the orchestra, smaller string ensembles, and the concert band in Western classical music. The bass is used in a range of genres, such as jazz, 1950s-style blues and rock and roll.
