SECURE SHOPPING Our site is tested by TWO services every day to protect your information.

McAfee SECURE sites help keep you safe from identity theft, credit card fraud, spyware, spam, viruses and online scams


Unlike some of our competitors, 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.

Uniting the Nation of Bass
I'm quite lucky, in that I really love what I do. Every day, I have the opportunity to speak with bassists from all around the world, and do my best to help them solve their bass-related concerns. And I'm able to provide a wide variety of products from manufacturers who are situated all over the planet, as well. That's kind of cool, if you think about it.

It made me realize that there was more to the whole "Nation of Bass" phrase that Bob coined so many years ago, to describe our (now ubiquitous) BASS Oval sticker that goes out with every order; stores like ours can really connect people in one corner of the world with their solutions -- which might be made in another corner of the world. And it's a real privilege to be the liaison for that sort if problem-solving.

So in our most recent edition of our Bass Notes Newsletter [subscribe here] is a "World's Fair" of sorts... I'm spotlighting some of the bass items that we are able to bring to you, from a host of other countries around the globe. Hopefully, you'll find it interesting to see just what a global village it is that we live in -- and know that we're happy to make it just a little smaller for you.

P.S.: Hey, did you notice we did a little sprucing up at the website? We made some minor design changes to refresh the look a bit without changing everything. A bit cleaner overall, with some improved navigation (many of our important links are in a menu across the top, now, for easier access!)

Hope you like it!

MASSIVE Price cut on NS Design NXT Basses
With the new NXTa "Active" Series Basses and NXTa Active Omni Basses now on their way, the passive NXT models will eventually be discontinued. So we've jumped the gun and discounted them! The NXTa adds - simply - a rechargeable "buffer" circuit to improve compatibility with a wider range of bass amps -- but no new active EQ controls or changed electronics. Think about this: with this newly discounted price on the passive model, you'll have enough cash left over to buy a FULLY-FEATURED external preamp like the Fishman Platinum Stage, and still have $100 in your pocket!

Limited number of basses available, act soon!

Recent Customer Feedback about Gollihur Music
Recent Customer Feedback:
I ordered 2 of the LiveBass Plus Light models... (You) were great, very helpful and responsive to all my questions.

I am very pleased with the packaging and documentation... Excellent and very thorough info and photos.

My first opportunity to try the clamp with INV-1 was a few weeks ago when the Seattle Symphony did a series of Pops Concerts with the music from Pixar animated movies (Toy Story, The Incredibles, Monsters, Inc, Finding Nemo, etc). On the first day of rehearsals, I approached our principal bassist with my request to attach the clamp to his instrument. As I feared, he flat out turned me down. He said that his instrument was more valuable than his life, and he wouldn’t allow it.

The next day, I told him that the basses REALLY needed to be brought out in the mix. I showed him the clamp and described the small silicone sleeves that would prevent any metal from actually touching the wood of the instrument. He held the clamp, noted how light it was, and allowed me to give it a try. He watched me like a hawk as I attached the clamp and adjusted the boom arm with my Audio-Technica ATM-35 with the Rycote mount so that the mic was just above the bridge, under the strings. He gave me a worried smile and said, “OK, let’s try it.”

I couldn’t have been happier with the sound of the bass, but I was more worried about his reaction to having the clamp on his instrument? Would it get in his way? Would if affect his tone, the resonance of the instrument? I rushed down to the stage at the end of the rehearsal to ask him, and he have me a big smile and said it was great. He could hear himself a little in the PA, and he even liked THAT, which was truly surprising!

So I have a big hit on my hands with these clamps, and now I can’t wait to try one with our principal cellist, as well...

Thanks again for a great product and for... (your) help with the purchase.
