GENUINE PRODUCTS
GUARANTEED



Unlike some of our competitors, we are an authorized retailer for everything we sell - we do not use unathorized "Gray Market" sources.
   


Since 1997, we've proudly offered a varied line of Pickups and Microphones, Preamps, and Amplifiers for Double Bass at very good prices. Over the years, we've added Upright and Electric Upright Basses, Parts, Strings, Cases and Stands, Bows, and many other useful, quality products for bass players.

You benefit from shopping with us because our experience and focus means that you get real answers to your questions, from bassists! You can see that our product descriptions are in-depth and detailed, because they are most often based on our own use of the gear, rather than the generic "manufacturer blurbs" you'll find on most other websites. We only carry gear that we would (and often DO) confidently use ourselves: anything we consider selling has to pass the "Bob & Mark Test" -- or you won't see it here.

Our secure website is available 24 hours a day for your ordering ease. And we're committed to keeping products in stock; we ship most orders within 24 hours of being placed (excepting weekends and holidays, of course), and provide you with tracking and post-purchase support. And our many "extras" - like installation guides, product-specific tips, and even cool BASS stickers for your car - are included at no charge!


And we're more than just a store.

The Gollihur Music crew is happy to offer lots of useful, free resources on this website.

Finally, QUESTIONS are always welcome, whether you are buying stuff or not! We're all in the same boat, and if we don't know the answer ourselves, we'll try to point you in the right direction.

Our Blog

Sometimes the 'Best' Deal... Isn't.
Just like everyone, I like paying less. In fact, I've talked about it quite a bit in our newsletters over the years - hunting bargains is a bit of a hobby of mine. Of course, my wife says I'm destined to "go broke, saving money," but I digress...

All that said, I urge you to beware of eBay bargains, as well as sellers of bass things (particularly strings) who loudly proclaim that they have pricing substantially below the average shop; you may not be getting what you think you're getting. A couple of dollars one way or the other is to be expected -- but the reality is that sales margins on strings are simply not very high. If a store is regularly selling string sets for 20% cheaper than everyone else, that should set your Spidey-sense a-tingling.

Product counterfeiting is a real thing. D'Addario was openly highlighting their issues with it back in 2010, with this blog post (which specifically talks about illegal copies of their guitar strings.) And one of our competitors recently sent out a blast email saying that they have evidence that there are "fakes" of Thomastik and Pirastro double bass strings coming into the US Market from Asia. Other products can be counterfeited, too - there was a big kerfuffle a little over a decade ago with fake Oktava mics hitting the American market (and sold, unknowingly, through big music stores, too!)

Gollihur Music has close to a 20-year working relationship with both Pirastro and the one authorized Thomastik US Distributor, and I can tell you that I've confirmed that there are other shops who are "getting around" the system. All that I'm suggesting is that you ask that the store you buy from is sourcing their strings (and other items) directly from the authorized source(s). You can rest assured, Gollihur Music always does - we have always provided *genuine* goods at a fair price. And as for strings, we always offer free shipping, to all 50 states (on sets AND single strings)! ...as well as offering "extras" like added tip sheets, instructions and bonus items.

Recent Customer Feedback about Gollihur Music
Recent Customer Feedback:
Hi Bob. Just wanted to let you know I received my order yesterday and I've already used the Ten2 Acoustic Image amp on a gig. As expected, a brilliant amp (this is actually my second AI amp) and your postage speed was exceptional! (Unfortunately our customs here leaves a lot to be desired... took them nearly 4 weeks to clear it!) Thanks so much for your help, and bargain price. It actually worked out nearly $700 cheaper to buy from you than over here in Australia, and that's including the shipping, lead, Fishmann Bass pickup and paying customs duties! It's my second order from you, and I'm sure it won't be my last. Anyway, just wanted to say thanks, brilliant service et al, keep up the great work! Kindest regards,
Adam B (April 2011)
