GENUINE PRODUCTS
GUARANTEED

We are an authorized retailer for everything we sell - we do not use unathorized "Gray Market" sources.
We Are the Family Music Shop Dedicated to the Upright Bass.

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 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!

We now have volutes for Kay Basses!
I'm very pleased to announce that we've partnered with Roger at KayBass.com to stock the wooden volutes for Kay Basses (both pre- and post-1952 models). We add these two new offerings to the Engelhardt models we have had for many years. Now in stock, and shipping free to all 50 states.
New Fishman Platinum Pro-EQ in stock!
This is more than just a pretty new case. The new Platinum Pro EQ Analog Preamplifier replaces both the original Pro EQ Platinum Bass and the Pro EQ Platinum. It combines the handy features they already had (DI, Optical Compressor, Phase Control, more) and ADDS some great new tools as well - like an Onboard Digital Tuner, Notch Filter, Low Cut Filter, Effects Loop, and a Footswitchable Boost (with level), among others. It has a switch on the top to adjust the EQ mode for either Bass or non-bass instruments (like acoustic guitar, uke, mandolin, etc.) so you have one preamp that can serve multiple situations. If you liked the old Pro-EQ Platinum models, you'll LOVE the new one!
Lenzner Gut Strings IN STOCK
Due to a materials shortage, our German-made Lenzner gut strings were a little tough to get a hold of for a couple weeks there. But I'm happy to say that we've just gotten a MASSIVE shipment from Germany and we have every gut string IN STOCK - even low B and high C strings! Brand new, fresh gut strings are ready to be packed up and sent right out!
NS Design CR4 SPECIAL PRICING!

The NS Design CR4 Bass
is a very nice electric upright bass that is crafted in Europe. They don't come cheap - but here's a stellar opportunity to get one at a big discount. If you have been holding out - or considering buying the NXT (the budget version of this bass) - you may want to jump on this deal while it lasts.

New Version of our Popular Gig Bag - IN STOCK
Our previous model gig bag was a useful carry case for small amps, cables, preamps, and other miscellanea - our newest version is slightly larger, includes some handy new features, and has a new, lower-profile "BASS" logo for a classier appeal.

Hi Mark,

I purchased a Bass Master Pro upgrade kit and added it to my Bass Max. It tightened up the sound and gave me all the 'edge' I would ever need (exactly what I wanted). The enclosed comprehensive information really helped. It is great buying gear from guys that use it themselves in the field.

Thanks.
Dennis Pinhorn
