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)

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.

Bass Centre Elites Detroit Flatwound IV's
Put them on my '64 P-Bass... Amazing. Twice the output of others... fat low end with definition & smooth feel. I think I've finally found what I've been looking for... will spread the word.
Vic Vicena • Hayward, CA USA • September 2016

Bass Centre Elites Detroit Flatwound V's
My Detroit bass came with Elites Detroit Flats, which is my main reason for purchasing my bass. I love the warm thump these strings produce and they really give you an authentic "old school" tone.
Marc Duarte • Sunnyvale, CA USA • September 2016

Bass Collection Power Bass
Just to say that I am VERY happy with my P Bass... and the black scratchplate looks amazing! The bass sounds brilliant too... Will recommend you to the world!!
Adrian Cain • UK • September 2016

Bass Collection Jive Bass
First of all, customer service at The Bass Centre is fantastic. Katie was able to answer every ridiculous question I asked and was quick & courteous in doing so... The bass - beautiful finish + a great set-up right out of the box... p/ups are nice and transparent with just enough mid-range growl. I paid a mere $480 USD (inc shipping!) and I must say no other "J" on the market I've played can compare when it comes to this bass' playability... All this, and the bass made it to Nashville in less than a week... Customer for life. 
Michael Morgan • Franklin TN, USA • August 2016

Bass Collection Power Bass
I’ve had comments admiring both how it looks and sounds and I’m delighted with the bass.  I didn't expect to get something so good for this price and I would seriously recommend the range to anyone from amateur to pro level.
Keith Ravenscroft • Liverpool, UK • August 2016

Elites Stadium Strings
Have tried many string sets but I can't find any better than Elites - Under £20 a set too. Great tone and feel. Bass Centre's delivery is super quick too... Give them a try. 
Neil Gascoigne • Newcastle, UK • August 2016

Shergold Marathon Vintage Fretted/Fretless Pair
Delighted with my 2 Shergolds, they are perfect, sound phenomenal, look fantastic and they're British! Loving the (Elites) strings too!

Chevalet qui respire la solidité. Réglages multiples et installation aisée (grâce au tutoriel).​
Alix Xilax • Issy Les Moulineaux, France • May 2016

Babicz FCH 4 String Bridge
I bought the Babicz to replace the vintage style bridge on an old obscure bass I own. None of the bass bridges you can buy are a straight bolt-on replacement so I got the Babicz. It sounds great, it really does improve things a lot.
David Turner • Sheffield, UK • April 2016

Ortega D-Walker Bass
This is a great little bass with an amazing sound and very easy to play. I already have an Ortega KW Limited Edition Walker Bass and this is to give me a spare for gigs. I highly recommend these guitars.
Jon Digweed • Bedfordshire, UK • April 2016

British Bass Masters Bruce Thomas Profile Bass
Arrived 'Down Under' 10 days after shipping from the UK, all in one piece and - straight out of the box and gig bag - almost in tune! Looks & sounds great! Came with a spare set of strings and a copy of (Bruce Thomas' new book) 'Rough Notes' too! No complaints!
Peter Lewis • Manly NSW, Australia • April 2016

Babicz FCH 3-Point Bridge
I had read good reviews about the bridge, but I didn't expect THAT! My Gibson SG short scale has much more sustain and sounds as brilliant. It has a completely different character - It's fantastic, and I'm very happy about it. I had no idea what a "sustain-grave" the original bridge had been. Bass Centre service was good. They delivered the bridge from Britain to Germany within 7 days.
Peter Wentzel • Rastede, Germany • April 2016

Bass Centre Elites Strings
Bass Centre's service is excellent!!... + Elites Stadium Series IV bass strings sound very bright and clear!!
Paul Michalski • Park Falls WI, USA • April 2016

Bass Centre Bruce Thomas Profile Bass
Received today and I have to say it is glorious. Played brilliantly straight out of the box. Beautiful salmon pink paint finish, superb neck and a fabulous sound. Used it on two recording sessions today already. Totally knocked out. Nothing this good anywhere at this price point. My bass of choice from now on.
Clive Culbertson • Coleraine, UK • March 2016

I’ve been using Elites for over 25 years. Great strings and fast delivery. Good price, too.

Babicz FCH 4 String Bridge
Easy to fit… Set up very well... Tuning appears more stable and a lot more sustain on the Jazz.. Pleased with this.
Paul Vallance • Enfield, UK • March 2016

Bass Collection Power Bass - Guards Red
Wow! An incredible bass for the money, the neck is superb, the frets are all nice and level and it sounds fantastic too... it's one of my favourite basses. Well done!
Davis Sims • Luton, UK • March 2016

Kala U-Bass Mahogany Fretless
A great little bass.. requires some getting used to with its stretchy strings but produces a BIG sound. I have had to adjust my technique and lighten my touch to get the best out of it, but it is a lot of fun.
Richard Blatch • Kings Lynn, UK •  February 2016

Bass Collection Jive Live  - Solar Flare Limited Edition
I'm absolutely blown away with the look and sound of it, amazing! Puts my American Fenders to shame. I usually play a U.S.A. Precision or Jazz and this Jive Live easily plays as nicely. It's now my #1 gigging bass, no question…Amazing fret job and great relicing, pickups are punchy and you get everything from U2 Rock to James Jamerson Motown. Can't recommend enough.
Simon Holland • Menorca, Spain • February 2016

Kala U-Bass Mahogany Fretless
A serious bass in a pint-sized body. Brilliant!
Mike Shearing • Cravant-Les-Côteaux, France • February 2016

Babicz FCH 3 Point Gibson Style Bridge
Todo perfecto, el único fallo es que no traía la llave de ajuste.
Ramon Pires Hernandez • Salamanca, Spain • February 2016

Bass Collection Detroit Bass - Solar Flare LE
Very excited and surprised at how fast it arrived in California! Opened the box and when I took it out of the soft case, I was very impressed by how it looked and felt and with the overall quality. I was looking at big name, budget line basses but their color choices were limited and some of the basses I considered buying were discontinued. This bass has everything I wanted in a bass and then some. The basses you make are worth the extra money and the shipping, I couldn't be any more satisfied with my purchase.
Marc Duarte • Sunnyvale CA, USA • December 2015

Aquila ShortBass-One
Just to let you know how really delighted I am with my Aquila acoustic bass - it's absolutely what I was looking for and extremely comfortable to play. Thanks for your help and doing a part exchange deal. I'm sure we'll meet up again as I may be tempted to purchase a second one...
Roger Ferris • Brighton, UK • November 2015

Bass Centre Elites Stadium Series Strings
Loads of thanks Barry. No better way to spend a cold Saturday afternoon than having a great time trying out a couple of Radius 5's. Can't stop playing my little bit of bass history! Really friendly, helpful service and the bass chat was fun too.
Dave Slater • UK • November 2015

Bass Centre does what it says on the tin... Sorted quickly... Great communication... Job done! Thank you!
William Taylor • Aberdeenshire, Scotland • November 2015

Bass Collection Jive Bass Solar Flare Left Handed
As a lefty, the options of basses available are pretty limited... The Jive with the Babicz Bridge is an awesome machine. It does everything I want and is fab value compared to some big name brands I can think of... Definitely a 5 star instrument!
Paul Noden • Cheshire, UK • November 2015

I have been using Elites Player Series Medium Gauge bass strings for years. They are fabulous!

Ordered some Elite DBE 40-100 on Monday... just to say they have arrived today. Excellent service guys, so quick, ready for the weekend. I will definitely be spreading the word round the North East about this.
