Since 1997, we've proudly offered a varied line of Pickups and Microphones
, and Amplifiers
for Double Bass at very good prices. Over the years, we've added Upright
and Electric Upright
, 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!
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.
Sometimes It's the Small Things.
Upright basses are peculiar things; they're seemingly simple instruments, but there are deceptive complexities in making yours sound and play its very best. Often, seemingly minor changes can pay off with surprising improvements to its tone. Something as simple and inexpensive as a new tailpiece cable
may energize the sound of your bass, and there are countless threads on "no cost" changes you can make -- quite a few folks advocate swapping the E and A string
on the tuning machines, for instance. Then you have things like soundposts
, replacement bridges
, afterlength tuning
, and more.
As we in the Northern Hemisphere plod into the Winter season, which is a slow gig time for many of us, it might do us well to look over our instruments and think of some of the small things we can do to maintain, improve, and protect our instruments
So in this month's newsletter
, we focus on the "little" things. We've reprinted our annual "winter care" article, and in our FAQ we discuss details about something small that we often take for granted - signal cables. We also focus on some of the "small" products that you might want to pick up (or put on your holiday gift wish list!), so you can baby your bass now that it's cold outside.
Sweat the small stuff - and keep warm!
