Palatino 500 Electric Upright Reviews
This is a fiddle-shaped electric upright that sells for about $650 [year 2010, USA dollars]
I play mainly in a duo, with Ms Diva on KB.
As I mentioned, I know other players who are happy with their Palatino 500 EUBs -- and I used to be happy with it as well. It's the least expensive full size EUB on the market, and you have an excellent chance of getting a good one .... but I felt I ought to report what CAN happen. I would HUGELY recommend you spend the extra $200 for a Ned Steinberger [NSD company] basic model EUB, his 'WAV' bass. I had a minor problem with one of the very first WAVs, and they treated me like royalty. NSD paid for priority shipping BOTH ways and fixed it in 48 hours. They even added an upgrade that early versions like mine did not originally include ! Palatino OTOH is just another faceless importer with no customer service connections. Ned Steinberger is ... well, you can look him up. He's real. He's been building basses for 30 yrs, and he takes proper care of his customers.Golem rated this unit on 2010-01-26.
