Bass Collection Jive Bass Looks great, the pickups are strong and have a nice range... I like the light weight as well... It's a sexy bass and sounds good. Rich Fisher • Washington DC, USA • November 2017
Bass Collection Power Bass Thank you so much to Barry for my Power Bass with gold hardware. It looks as good as he said it would and sounds great!! Becky Page • UK • November 2017
Bass Centre Bruce Thomas Profile Bass Very pleased with the bass... and the delivery/service excellent too! Barry Cartwright • Leominster, UK • November 2017
Bass Centre Ashbory Bass Very pleased with this little bass guitar. Well made and good value for money, especially compared to a Kala U-Bass. Can get a sound very close to a double bass, the secret is to turn the EQ off and then add very little back in bit by bit. Christopher Page • Sherbourne, UK • October 2017
Babicz FCH Z4 Bridge Bought to replace the stock bridge on a Squier VM Fretless. It arrived the following day, earlier than anticipated. Great upgrade. Simple transaction. Thanks. Shaun Broke • York, UK • October 2017
Bass Collection Power Bass Bass Centre put Elites Strings on the bass and set it up so it is ready to go as soon as you get it. It also comes in a decent quality gig bag. The bass is light but tone doesn't suffer and it is honestly one of the most comfortable basses I have played. The neck is really fast and plays very smoothly...  Plenty of signal from the pickups and lots of tone control. Carl Gibbard • Papworth, UK • October 2017
Bass Centre Frankenstein Bass The best budget bass that I have played in many years... puts many far more expensive P-Basses to shame. The price point seems ridiculously low for what you are getting. If this is a typical Bass Collection instrument then I would recommend them to anybody. Chas •  UK • September 2017
Bass Centre Wyman Bass Played my bass at the Cavern Club in Liverpool at the International Beatles week! I'm really happy with it! Sounds, plays and looks great. Linus Ohlsson • Piteå, Sweden • September 2017
Bass Centre Gig Bag Excellent quality and well made with generous padding inside. I'm very pleased with my purchase and would highly recommend this product. Mike Reed • Penrith, UK • August 2017
Bass Centre Bruce Thomas Profile Bass So glad to have stumbled across this bass! Bruce Thomas has long been a top favorite player so I jumped at the chance to own and play his signature model. Despite its rather modest price this bass is definitely a high quality, well thought out instrument and as Bruce himself said "it's a real joy to play". David Fox • Seattle, Washington, USA • July 2017
Bass Collection Jive Five I have quite a number of Bass Collection basses, and I adore all of them, they're unbelievably good. However, this is the bass I've spent my career looking for!! It is perfect, and I mean perfect. If you're gonna play a fiver, this should be your number one choice. Si Peddle • Manchester, UK • July 2017
Bass Collection Bespoke Visited The Bass Centre today & put an order in for a Bass Collection Power Bass ("The Lizzy") with hi mass bridge. My request of changing the neck for a Jive/Jazz was met with "no problem at all" (and at no extra cost). Dealing with Barry Moorhouse was a pleasure. Pick it up next Friday... can't wait. Great looker, great player. Ross Guy with alt rockers Silver Bayonets • London, UK • July 2017
Bass Collection Power Bass I really love this bass. It's light, well balanced, the neck is fast + satin smooth and the colour is amazing. It's now my No. 1 bass, replacing a similar instrument made by a very well known American company. Just wish I'd bought one earlier! Simon Poole • Somerset, UK • June 2017
Bass Centre Elites Player Series Strings Have never had such fantastic after sales service from any other company. 5 stars without a doubt! Thank You. Graham Wyvill • Nottingham UK • June 2017
Bass Centre Elites Stadium Series Strings I've been using Elites for years and simply love the Stadium Series! As if that wasn't enough, the FREE shipping to Europe offered by The Bass Centre is an added bonus! Stephen Hollas • Copenhagen, Denmark • May 2017
Bass Centre Elites Stadium Series I use these on all of my basses. I've tried most on the market, but Elites have a beautiful bright tone which doesn't deteriorate over time. Andy Graham • Lowestoft, UK • May 2017
Bass Centre Bill Wyman Bass Well pleased with the Wyman Bass... I would recommend the Bass Centre to anyone... Thanks. Ian Allsop • Warrington, UK • May 2017
Bass Centre Ashbory Solid Body Great bass at an unbelievable price. Customer service very good also, all questions answered and tracking the product's arrival very straightforward. Will be buying from the Bass Centre again, very soon... Don't tell the wife! William Derbyshire​ • Royston, UK • April 2017
Elites Stadium IV's I buy with full confidence they'll deliver the bright, crystalline ping they always do. Very high quality, durability and of course attractive silk! Warren Doyle • Kristianstad, Sweden • April 2017
Bass Centre Elites DBE Series Elites have always been my string of choice when I need double ball end strings. I prefer stainless steel more than nickel wound as they have a brighter tone and Bass Centre Elites have never let me down for the last 27 years. Paul Kirkwood • Barnsley, UK • April 2017
Bass Collection Power Bass • Windsor Tan Every time I think Barry & the team have finally done the best bass for me, they then come up with another... These would still be a bargain at three times the price (don't put your prices up!). I need a consistently reliable bass and I know for a fact that every one of my Bass Collection basses will never let me down. Amazing looks, amazing sound, built to stand the road! What more could you ask for. Top work once again. Si Peddle • Manchester, UK • March 2017 
Phil Jones Double Four BG-75 Bass Amplifier Very pleased with my new amp. It sounds like a much bigger amp and it fits in a sports bag. Michael Dowling • Sheffield, UK • March 2017
Bass Centre Rhythm Stick Barry and the team just keep on amazing me! Every time I give them a new challenge, they completely knock it out the park!! A job well done once again team, stunning bass as always!! Si Peddle • Bassist/Vocalist with Pattison Fogg • UK • February 2017
Bass Centre Elites Strings The dudes there really sort me out and they are so much better quality than any other strings I’ve used. I don’t confess to being a big gearhead. I don’t know much but I know what I like Paul Shelly • Bassist with HECK• Nottingham, UK • from Bass Guitar Magazine • January 2017
Elites Stadium Series Montate su Thunderbird, risultate essere eccellenti. Suono metallico, brillante, pulito e ben definito... Miglior sustain... Molto soddisfatto del suono... a differenza delle corde provate precedentemente che fornivano suoni molto sporchi ed eccessivamente ovattati. Un sentito ringraziamento a Barry! Giuseppe Mattera • Vetralla, Italy • November 2016
Bass Collection Jive Bass - Natural, with Babicz FCH Bridge Hi Barry... Hope you’re doing well! The bass arrived on Monday and it plays beautifully, truly one of the best basses I ever played. The action is perfect, the strings are smooth and I love the colour. Thanks again! Lorenzo Milani • November 2016
Bass Centre Bruce Thomas Profile Bass Thanks Bass Centre & Bruce Thomas. The Profile is a beautiful thing. It's very loud, lots of sustain and a great neck ("Live on Jools Holland... straight out the box! Sounds lovely" adds his tech Geoff Cattani) Mark Bedford • UK ska/pop legends MADNESS • September 2016
Bass Collection Jive Bass A killer J-Bass copy and absolutely the best on the market for the price. The neck feels like a 1962 Jazz. Joe Hubbard • Internationally acclaimed fusion bassist • September 2016
