The beta model introduces some innovations into EUB
:: reduced weight ::
Many musicians don't need the outline of the classical
upright bass but prefer a light and small instrument.
Using Schaller ultralight tuners the weight of this instrument
is reduced to 3,5 kg (vs. 5 kg of the alpha)
:: the neck ::
Bassists that are used to refer to the end of the neck for the
5th position often find it difficult to switch to a EUB, which
often have longer necks. The CETVS beta has a longer
neck, too. One of the innovations on the CETVS beta
is the thumb-gap on the back of the neck that allows you to
easily find the 5th position on this instrument.
