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


We are an authorized retailer for everything we sell - we do not use unathorized or "shady" 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.

Our Blog

Bringing Back Some Favorites
Over the years, we've made it our business (literally) to bring you bass products you may not have even known existed. Some of the cool things that we've introduced over the years are cool gadgets and accessories, like the H-Clamp microphone boom, or the nifty plastic travel case that we found at a sporting goods supplier that works so well for the NS Design basses. Then, there are specialty pickups and mics, like the amazing Ehrlund Acoustic Pickup (EAP) and the outstanding Xlson Audio Chuck Israels Signature Microphone (scroll down to read more about this sweet mic!)

However - one of the issues that often arises with having a lot of unique products? Sometimes, the supply chain for those items dries up, at least temporarily. So, over the years, we've had to discontinue some neat products. As an example, the metal Kay tailpiece emblems are, it appears, no longer being made (I still have a few of the "Engelhardt" emblems left).

Occasionally, though, those "lost" products come back. A great example is our popular leather side bumper set, which we offered for several years. Unfortunately, the original leatherworker decided that he just didn't want to make them anymore. So for the last 16 months, I've been scrambling; making phone calls, and sending emails all over the world, all to find an new maker of this handy product. And it finally paid off; I've got a new guy right here in the USA who is now making them, just for us. They're a slightly different design than before, but we really like them - the top is a warm brown, while the sides are dyed black. So they have a classy two-tone look. And they are IN STOCK!

At the same time, it inspired me to find an second bumper option as well - so now we also have neoprene rubber bumpers as well. Nicely made of solid black neoprene rubber, with just the right amount of give and support, they're available on the same page as the leather ones. And they are a bit cheaper, too.

We're also (finally) getting a shipment of our popular "Performer" Padded Gig Bags in, as well as a new model of double bow cases (our regular ones have been unavailable from the manufacturer for 16 months!) which should be arriving in the next week or two. We'll have updated details as soon as they arrive.

So it always seems that staying on top of all the unique offerings we have involves quite a bit of legwork. There's no standing still here at Gollihur Music - we always strive to stay ahead of the curve, and bring you new stuff that you didn't even know you needed! :-)

If you play bluegrass, or country, or rockabilly slap on a 1/2 size doghouse - this is a great string to try. Now available and in stock!
Double Bow Cases are FINALLY BACK!
At long last, we FINALLY have received - and have, IN STOCK - double bow cases.
