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.

Planting the Seeds...
I hope you'll grant me a little leeway here; I'm a proud dad. A few weeks ago, my 6-year old daughter made her stage debut as "Nala" in a kids' version of "The Lion King;" it was the culmination of a three-week "theater camp" that she attended, and she had a wonderful time (and she killed it). She's already looking forward to next year, and so am I.

I was exceedingly fortunate to have musical parents. My mother was a school music teacher and a theater/choir director, and my dad -- as if you didn't know -- has been a performing musician since before I was born. There was always music in the house, and was always support for musical endeavors when I was growing up. With the declining status of music programs in many of our public schools nationwide (a misguided effort, and one that would require far more space than I have here to debate) it's even more important that we support our kids outside the school system with encouragement and opportunity.

Now, my kid will be fine, even though her elementary school scaled back her music teacher position to part-time this year. Between me, her mom (a Broadway stage alum) and Grandpa Bob -- never mind all the other family members and friends who surround her with the arts -- she'll have plenty of support and inspiration.

And I think that most other kids will be fine, too... the theater camp sold out early, and had three groups filled with talented, eager kids putting on impressive shows for pretty full houses. Hopefully there's this much homegrown support for performing arts where you live, too. And we'll keep working to re-establish to our local school boards and state legislators just how important they are to our childrens' development and abilities. A program from NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants - we're a longtime member) can help - click the icon to the left to see how you can become an advocate to help assure that music education is supported in communities everywhere, so that all children have the opportunity to learn and grow with music.

In the meantime, music will always find a way!

A Major Snowstorm is blanketing the Northeast...
A major snowstorm is buffeting our region, and many schools and government offices are closed.

We processed and packed orders this morning, and we're dropping the Postal Service packages off at 1pm, but USPS's ability to get them fully into the mailstream might be limited by circumstances and closures beyond our control. UPS has already picked up for the last time today as well.

In the interest of safety, we've decided to close for the rest of the day. Mark may still be able to answer your phone calls if available, as phones have been forwarded, but we won't be back in the office until Thursday the 22nd.
