GIFTS for Bass Players

Shopping for a holiday or birthday gift for your favorite bass player? We can help.

We've got lots of great (and affordable) stuff for the bass players on your gift list! Check out our upright bass-related gift-ables - everything from stocking stuffers, like videos and small accessories... on up to handy folding stools and music stands. And of course, if you're nervous about getting the wrong thing, you can always play it safe with a Gift Certificate, which is a sure bet with any bassist (we ALWAYS need strings, or rosin, or...)

Here is an assortment of useful and fun items for players of Upright and Electric Basses; Under $25 items include a popular clip-on electronic tuner or humidity gauge, a couple of great hats, the clever Turbo-Tune string winder, and our hilarious (but still useful) "Bass Bomb." We also have videos and book sets, a great cleaning/care kit and more - all under $50!

All of the items mentioned above can be found in the list of product links below, simply click on a link to be taken to the product pages for each item. Except for some of the style-specific videos, all of the products on the list are universal in nature, so they're just as useful for an adult jazz bassist, a young student in an orchestra, or a "bass fiddler" playing bluegrass!
