My Power Bass arrived an hour or so ago, thank you. I have to say it was well worth the wait, its lovely. It was beautifully set up and sounds just as you would expect it to. I reckon its easily as good as anything Fender Mexico is producing, and perhaps not too far off the American P Basses.

I am really pleased, thanks again. Superb service.

So far, so good!

Just got them put on. I think they had been in the mail for a while. Haven't gotten out much with COVID-19. I am getting back into playing bass after a hiatus and bought a new bass. I didn't like the factory strings, and I used to play with heavies so I got these and they already feel more comfortable and more like what I am used to. Love the free cloth that came with them.

Lovely deep bass sound

I decided to change from roundwound to flatwounds on my Bass Collection Power Bass. I was astounded at the quality of the strings for the price and would recommend them highly ultra smooth, nice tension, and that lovely deep bass sound right out of the packet.

Excellent service

I've been using Elites Stadium strings on all my basses for the past four years. They're the only brand who, regarding 5 string sets, produce a low B string that has a clear and glassy tone every time. They're the most consistent, therefore reliable of all bass strings. I see no alternative.

I play bass for over 30 years and recently acquired my first set of these. They feel and sound amazing. Further, my compliments to the Bass Centre on their high level of service. I live overseas (Netherlands) but received the shipment as quick and easy as if the store was right next door. I shall definitely recommend The Bass Centre to every single bass player I know.

Great service I'm ordering again next month, arrived quickly

Fantastic bass
Sunday, 13 October 2019  |  Kevin

A belated note to say a HUGE thank you for this fantastic bass.

Have gigged it twice now, and it's tremendous fun to play - the nut width, and most importantly, neck profile and finish make it much easier to play long sets on hot summer nights.

The pickup is a monster too, a perfect match with the Stainless Steel Elites! What more can I say? A brilliant package with the gig bag and Bruce's book... even the box the bass came in looks cool!

Congratulations on a real winner

Excellent service, fast delivery

Great strings

More companies should make a set like this. The G is now beefy enough to sound great, strings tune quick and stay in tune. Feel great too!
