Description

Whenever you put your bass down on its side, you risk scratches, dents, or chips in the edges! Choose one of these simple sets of 4 stick-on protectors to provide "bumpers" or "feet" that will elevate the edges off the floor and keep the wood from taking on that damage. They should have no effect on your instrument's tone, due to their recommended location at the edges of your bass' side.
No tools or modifications required: they are easily installed using an adhesive which is pre-applied to each pad. Note that the adhesive 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?

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.

Simple and effective edge protection!

We now have two different bumper options!

The "deluxe" bumpers are handcrafted in soft dyed leather, which provides a softer "footing" between your bass and whatever surface you put it down onto. They're low profile and extremely lightweight.

The leather bumpers are two-tone; they feature a warm "burnished" brown top finish, and the sides are dyed black to make them low-profile and classy-looking.

These are specially made for Gollihur Music by a specialty leatherworker -- we even have our own exclusive die for producing them(!) -- and you can't find this exact bumper design anywhere else.

Dimensions of the leather bumpers (may vary slightly, as these are hand-crafted):

  • Thickness: 11/32nd inch/8.8mm
  • Width: 3/8th inch/9.75mm
  • Length: 2.45 inches/62.3mm

Package includes 4 bumpers (enough for one side), alcohol cleaning pad, and instructions.



The "standard" bumpers are crafted of 60 Durometer Neoprene Rubber, which is very dense, durable rubber which will last a very long time, but has a nice amount of "give" so putting the bass down on them won't transmit the shock to the instrument's ribs. They are also backed with VHB (Very High Bond) permanent adhesive for easy (and permanent) peel-and-stick application. These are specially made for Gollihur Music by a specialty rubber company, and you can't find this specific bumper anywhere else.

Dimensions of the rubber bumpers (may vary slightly):

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

Package includes 4 bumpers (enough for one side), alcohol cleaning pad, and instructions.




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.

    Work well, inconspicuous.

    I like these. They stick out just enough so that they protect the edge but they aren't too obvious. The color is good, they almost disappear on my bass.

    So glad you have these again!

    I got a set of these years ago for my Kay, and they were great. I came back to get more for my other bass, and they were gone! :-( So glad to see they're back again, I just got a set and they're working great. Thanks for making these available, they're saving my bass edges.

    Do Not Stay in Place

    The neopreme bumpers come loose from the adhesive. The adhesive strip is left on the bass and the bumpers will not stick to it. I'm going for the leather ones next.
