Gollihur Music is a LBGQT+ Friendly Business   Gollihur Music


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.

Changing of the Guard
We've been in selling upright gear on the web for 22 years now, and we've always been happy to be a small band of bass-playing friends, rather than aspiring to be "The Wal-Mart of Bass." I joined my Dad pretty early on, and we grew the business together for several years. When Bob decided it was time to retire, we went outside the family and brought Christopher on board, to replace me, so that I could focus my attention on learning the ropes and eventually replace him. I ultimately "bought Dad out" a little over five years ago, and we were back to two employees again, which seems to be our ideal balance.

In that way, I guess our situation is kind of like the Sith "rule of two" from Star Wars; we always eventually fall back to the master and the apprentice (though that is purely a business distinction, Christopher could definitely teach me more than a thing or two on actually playing the upright!)

So, I'm telling you all of this because Christopher has decided that the time has come for him to move on to pursue his music full-time; so Gollihur Music has brought on a new "apprentice." Luckily, no-one has to lose any limbs in a lightsaber duel; although I'm bummed to see him go, we'll let Chris walk out the door with our best wishes.

So, I wanted our longtime customers to be aware that you might hear a new voice on the end of your phone line, or read a unexpected name after the "Thanks!" note on your invoice or email signature. It's all good - Christopher is leaving on excellent terms, and leaves behind very big shoes to fill.

LaBella Supernil SLAPS Upright Bass Strings (Gollihur Exclusive)
This item is made in USA!Gollihur Music has created this unique, specially-sourced set to be an affordable option for rockabilly (and other) players seeking a very light tension nylon set. An alternative to "strings" that might be better off whacking weeds, these strings have a warm, boomy character, which can be a thumper's delight. FULL NYLON, with super-light (bumped) tension makes them eminently slappable.

Acoustic Image DoubleShot Speaker Cabinet (and combos)
This item is made in USA! Acoustic Image never stops innovating. Building on the massive success of their tiny UpShot speaker cabinet, now we get the DoubleShot. It HAS to be the all-time smallest and lightest 2x10 cabinet (with 5" mid/high front driver!) ever made, at 11" x 12" x 12" and only 15 lbs! It's kind of unreal - a legit bass cabinet at this size... and yet, here it is.

Pirastro Perpetual Upright Bass Strings
Pirastro Perpetual Upright Bass Strings
Pirastro's Perpetual strings, released in July of 2019, are a chromesteel/ropecore string that are designed to provide great clarity and punch for pizz playing, while offering excellent potential for arco too. With a much softer feel and flexibility when compared to similarly positioned strings, they are a new option that finds a perfect balance between the extremes.

Just to let you know the IAMP PRO is a keeper. I thank you for letting me try the amp for 7 days. It is way better than the [competitor's amp] which I am selling. Thanks for your service!
