The double bass instruments are colossal classical instruments that have been around for hundreds of years. They are played with the instrument placed in a vertical position on the ground and the musician using a bow across the strings. In 1935, Paul Tutmarc developed the first embodiment of the electric bass. It was to be held in a similar fashion to guitars, and an amplification device could be used in conjunction with it. However, Paul’s instrument never appealed to the crowd.
