NEW (2024) Version 2.1

This is cool! A useful tool for setting up double basses, provides instant measurables so you can speed up your workflow. Made of durable acrylic, and it has a handy peg-hole for hanging.

The new for 2024 version 2.1 model has some minor changes and improvements; the curves for the fingerboard and bridge have been slightly refined to better match Henry Strobel's intent from his book. Also, the feeler gauges were changed to reflect more contemporary string heights.

Includes separate gauges to measure:

  • Bridge Arch
  • String Heights for gut and steel strings *
  • String Spacing at the Nut
  • String Spacing at the Bridge
  • Fingerboard Radius
  • Bridge Top/Feet Thickness Gauge

Designed for 3/4 size, four-string basses, there are two models, specific to the type of setup needed - one, labeled "Jazz," is for a bass that is primarily plucked/played pizzicato (say that five times fast!) And the "Classical" model is for orchestral basses that are mostly played arco (bowed) and therefore are likely to have different arch settings on the bridge and fingerboard. Sold individually, or in a two-pack at a discount - and we ship them for free to the USA in a cart valued over $50.

Great, useful tool - not a lot of money!

* Based on Henry Strobel's guidelines, the feeler gauges on the sides are for the E and G strings; and the different heights are for steel vs. gut strings. The steel string height is the smaller of the two on each respective side.

We include a FREE TIP SHEET for use with the purchase of this item.
