At the Bass Shop we take pride in every bass we sell, as a result nothing from our shop is sold to you as is from the factory or maker. Every bass is completely set up as part of the cost we also offer a free adjustment within the first 30 days. This allows us to check the bass has settled and make any height adjustments to the strings or sound post.

A small portion of the setup includes

  • A hand selected french bridge
  • your choice of Thomastik, D’addario, or for a little extra Pirastro or gut strings
  • The nut is properly cut and fitted
  • the fingerboard is planed (according to players style)
  • the sound post is replaced and a quality one is installed

All our basses come with a bag and French or German bow.

Please note current prices may vary from the web site so please inquire.
