The maker of this cool product decided that he is not interested in making them anymore. We are looking for alternative options for getting them made. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

Whenever you put your bass down on its side, you risk scratches, dents, or chips in the edges! This simple set of 4 stick-on protectors in soft dyed leather provides a softer "footing" between your bass and whatever surface you put it down onto. They're low profile and extremely lightweight, and easily conform to the curved profile of your bass. They should have no effect on your instrument's tone, due to their recommended location at the edges of your bass' side.

They are available in your choice of Brown or Black, as shown in the photo below (your choice, select the color you want from the drop down menu next to the "add to cart" button). Each set of four (enough for one side of the bass) comes complete with simple instructions and an alcohol prep pad to prepare the installation locations.

No tools or modifications required: they are easily installed using an adhesive which is pre-applied to each pad. Note that the adhesive -- manufactured by 3M -- is designed for permanent use; as a result, removing the bumpers once the adhesive has "set" (about 72 hours, according to the instructions) could potentially mar or damage the finish... but isn't that better than grinding the edges of your bass away?

Simple and effective edge protection!

Dimensions (may vary slightly, as these are hand-made):

  • Thickness: 5/16th inch/9mm
  • Width: 3/8th inch/9.75mm
  • Length: 2.5 inches/64.25mm

Installation Tips:
  • Each set is designed to protect one side of your instrument. Monitor your habits and you'll probably find the favored side is the one against your body, but you can determine that.
  • While the bass is put on its side, use pieces of masking tape, Post-it, etc., to indicate exactly where your bass meets the floor, so the bumpers will be in the right places.
  • Turn the bass over, and again, use masking tape or a marker to put guides on the sides to show exactly where you want to put the bumpers. You want accurate placement for the most attractive result, so be sure each pair is exactly in the same place.
  • Some basses have an extra wood strip along the side of the edge. Depending on construction and wear you may want to place the bumpers there or on the side. Check the fit and make sure the top of the bumper is taller than the edge of the bass.
  • Follow the package instructions for cleaning and applying the bumpers.
