Beginning this month, we’ll be holding a raffle to win a free Upton Bass Revolution Solo Pickup. I’ll point out some of the features of this very cool bass pickup, but first I’d like to outline what you need to do in order to be entered in the raffle:
What is your worst gig story ever?
To be entered in this raffle, all you have to do is send me your worst gig story ever. Did your bass ever get crushed on an escalator? Fall out of a moving vehicle? Did you ever forget your music and have to air bow the entire concert? Ever forget your pants? You get the idea.
There’s no specific length you’ve got to meet, but don’t be sending me a sentence or two–that won’t cut it. Make it at least a few paragraphs (even more is better) and you’ll be fine.
Send me your gig stories starting today (March 2) through March 15. I’ll be publishing the best of them during the month, so don’t send me something you don’t want going out on the blog! The winner of the Upton Bass Pickup will be selected at random from all those who submitted a story and will be sent out by Upton after the 15th.

About the Upton Pickup
The Upton pickup is a smartly-designed pickup that allows for easy custom fitting to any bridge. I’ve found the sound to be very consistent and even in all registers of the bass, and the natural wood construction seems to really help with producing an “acoustic” sound through the amplifier.
The following video details the steps that go into fitting the pickup to your bass.
