I too have an electric upright (I also own two double basses). It is a Clevinger Bennet Bass which also has a floating top. I believe the multistring pickup that your bass probably has is made by Clevinger. This bass also has a holosonic pickup in the body to produce more accousics tonal characterisics. It is a very nice EUB. That said, it can not compare to the tonal qualities of my double basses. Don't get my wrong, it sounds great, probably better than many hybrid or plywood basses, but not up to hand carved double bass standards.
I use it for gigs when I do not think my double bass is necessary, or where I am just to lazy to care about the sound quality differences. It is really nice to be able to throw a gig bag over my shoulder like the guitarists do when I need an upright bass sound.
