IMPORTANT NEWS: We are here! You can order with confidence.

The COVID-19 pandemic has people understandably concerned. With abundant cautionary procedures, the bassists at Gollihur Music are still maintaining our normal (online) business hours and shipping out orders every weekday.

Since we are not a "bricks and mortar" store, we are not affected by mandatory retail closures. There are just two of us here at the shop, and we have put a halt to in-person appointments to limit any chance of exposure. We are taking appropriate measures to protect ourselves and our customers from any possible infection. We're confident that we can continue to provide you with your bass needs through this complex time.

Do note that some of our suppliers have been suspending or limiting operations, though, so some products may be a little less available. But we are well stocked with the bass-ics!

Rosin is key in getting a good bowed sound, so don't cheap out on this key ingredient to success, it can last a long time - and isn't very expensive. In fact, some bassists carry two or three different cakes just in case the environment makes another consistency better for that particular situation. When the humidity is high, the more powdery, harder rosin is usually best, and during very dry periods some stickier stuff may be needed.

Carlsson Swedish Bass Rosin

Premium Swedish bass rosin in easy to use foil cup, has a relatively neutral consistency. Here in the humid coastal area of Southern NJ, I find that it works equally well in the hot, muggy summertime, as well as in the drier, colder winter. It has been Bob's first choice for decades now!

New players: I include my personal notes on care and usage of rosin.

Thanks for your quick call back Tuesday regarding the Bass Max, rosin, and Bass Wheel. Your knowledge about the problem I was having with another pickup helped me decide that the Bass Max should work better with my GK MB 150 S combo amp, and fine without an external pre-amp. Thanks for your expanded "editorials" on your site regarding all your products, string changing tips, etc. This is much more helpful than the average "catalog," which typically reproduces only minimal product information from the manufacturer or distributor.
Mark, I just wanted to let you know I love the (Brazilwood) bow and the (Carlsson) rosin that I received. A great value. I tried a few other bows that cost twice as much and this one plays just as well. I also really love that your store also educates your clients about the products. Thanks again!
