Palatino introduced the upright Billy Bass with treble-side cutaway to meet the needs of bass players who want increased upper register access. Of the few cutaway upright basses available on the market, the Palatino Billy Bass offers an unparalleled combination of quality, style and value. The Billy Bass gives you all the quality you’ve come to expect from the Palatino name with the extra bonus of access to the upper fingerboard area. The Billy Bass produces resonant bowed tones, but maintains classic warmth and crisp tonality. The adjustable maple bridge makes it easy to install a piezo pickup 

Palatino’s line of string instruments include violins, violas, cellos and basses, most of which are hand-carved and offered in golden brown or oil varnish finishes. Palatino violins were the top selling student violins in 2003, signifying the brand’s strong commitment to the educational market.
