The Bass Centre Ashbory Bass

In 1985, Englishmen Alun Ashworth-Jones and Nigel Thornbory created the original Ashbory Bass - a revolutionary 18" scale, silicon-rubber strung instrument that, when amplified, produced a low, resonant bass tone that emulated a plucked double bass with astonishing clarity and accuracy.

In its second incarnation, Ashbory worked with The Bass Centre to create a version with an ergonomic body shape influenced by the Steinberger 'stick' basses of the day. These instruments instantly found favour with international players and recording artists including Tony Levin and Doug Wimbish.

Now, 30 years on, The Bass Centre is pleased to announce a brand new generation of the Ashbory brand.

The new solid body Ashbory Bass features a conventional offset design with through-body stringing for maximum bass response, piezo pickup, adjustable bridge and active 2 band EQ.

Good value for money
Tuesday, 31 October 2017  | 

Very pleased with this little bass guitar. Well made and good value for money, especially compared to a Kala U-Bass from California. Can get a sound very close to a double bass, the secret is to turn all the EQ off and then add very little back in bit by bit.

Only criticism is the strings, which are very hard on fingers but this can be cured with regular usage of talcum powder... Best put it on strings and fingers. If it's good enough for Jeff Beck, it's good enough for me!!
