Group Description

If you play Rock a Billy, Bluegrass, Jazz or any other type of music you may like these, hey they are at the very least a great conversation piece.

An Upright Bass made frome something besides wood? Why not?

It seems there is a love/hate relationship requrding these cool basses. I can find very little information on these basses. Aside that some were made for the Navy (mabe 500 or so) and a german company called Phiftzer or something close) made some in the 1940's. It seems that there are more than a few rumors, stories and opinions, just not a lot of facts.

Over the years some of these have been made into boats (well a small one any way), BBQ grills, out door signs and some even used as slappin basses, (mabe because they look so darn cool polished..hey a chrome bass, way cool)

I welcome any information,pictures,articles and opinions requurding these.

My intent is to have a place where anyone can look over pictures and get information on Aluminum Upright Basses.
