GENUINE PRODUCTS
GUARANTEED

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

The Gollihur Music Difference
I'm very aware that there are lots of places, particularly online, that you can spend your bass dollars. If you have a local mom-and-pop music shop, I don't mind losing your business to them; we should support our local "bricks and mortar" stores whenever possible. But for those upright bass items you can only easily find online, we work hard to always be your first place to shop.

As I was assembling the latest shipment of Krivo pickups this morning into our custom packaging, it occurred to me that it was a perfect example of how we do that. Here we have a specialized upright bass product, hand-made in the USA. Only a few stores even carry it. Could you find it somewhere else, maybe at eBay, or at another online store? Probably. You might even find it a dollar or two cheaper.

But here's where the difference is: We don't just want you to buy it -- we want you to love using it. We want you to be able to open it up, install it yourself without difficulty, get great sound without frustration, and have everything you will need to do so already in the box.


On the left is how everyone else, to my knowledge, ships the pickup. It's how Jason at Krivo provides it - a hand-made pickup in a bubble-wrap packet. On the right is what you get from Gollihur Music when you order a Krivo:
  • The Pickup, wrapped in the bubble-wrap packet
  • Packed into a retail-style cardboard container with peanuts to protect it in shipping
  • A special 4-piece jack mount kit for easily mounting the jack to your tailpiece
  • An instruction sheet, written by yours truly, so you don't have to go it alone
Now, are these extras expensive? Not really; all told, the box, sticker, jack mount kit and printed paper don't cost me a significant amount of money. But what hopefully makes the difference is that I saved you the the time figuring out what parts you'll need for the jack mount kit (and sourced them for you so you don't need to make a trip to the hardware store). And I fussed with the pickup to determine what you need to know to have a successful install, and shared that information with you before you had to ask. And I went through the trouble (just this morning, in fact) to pack it all into a nice box that will protect the pickup -- and give you the feeling that we really care about the impression you get when you open a package we've sent to you.

We don't just do this for the Krivo, of course. You get tip sheets, extra stuff, and in-depth instructions for all sorts of things you buy from us -- strings, bridges, preamps, pickups, amplifiers, bass buggies and wheels, bows... the list goes on. We strive to provide you with the answers you need before you've even asked the questions. (But we're also here to answer the questions we didn't anticipate!)

This is the philosophy that has driven the way we do things from the very beginning, when Bob first started shipping K&K Pickups back in 1997 -- and is the basis of what I continue to make a guiding principle today. I sincerely hope that you notice "The Gollihur Music Difference," and know that we will continually strive to exceed your expectations every day.

Now, I've found this wonderful bow, which is quite well-appointed, nicely balanced, and very finely haired. With a warm brown color and woven carbon fiber finish, it's traditional meets high-tech - and with a comfortable, familiar feel, you can get right to work with it.
