Cameron Dawson - bassist with the superb soulful, groove based UK band, Mamas Gun - loves his Bass Collection Power Bass...

"I was surprised by the brilliant playability of my Bass Collection instruments. They're light, with a classic vibe and a great sound."

"I really dig these basses!"

Cam is currently using three Bass Collection instruments - a Power Bass and a pair of fretted & fretless Jives - both live and in the studio with Mamas Gun.

Single Pickup Perfection!

Inspired by a healthy obsession with vintage basses from the swinging 60's & informed by The Bass Centre's communication with professional players & customers throughout the World, a truly iconic design has been re-imagined to blend period accurate looks & a classic sound with a modern, light weight construction & a super fast, satin finish neck.

  • New, light weight, balanced body contour

  • Vintage spec pickup

  • Classic colours & pickguards

  • Chrome "Ashtray" bridge cover

  • "Super Slim 60's" neck profile

With its cool retro features, authentic tone, superb build quality, flawless finish & expert set-up, The Power Bass is an affordable, pro-grade instrument that represents astonishing value for money & is genuinely regarded as being consistent with instruments three times the price.

In 2013, GI's resident bass guru, Dan Veall, praised The Jive Bass as a "classic take on a classic".

Dan singled out the finish ("immaculate"), the frets ("absolutely brilliant"), the finish, the newly-appointed Babciz Full-Contact Bridge, the meticulous set-up and the great range of tones available before summing up this "fantastic instrument" as a "a very good bass... for not a lot of money".

Jazzwise Magazine

In March 2011, reviewing the Jazz & Power Basses, Jazzwise Magazine raved that "These instruments offer players of all abilities truly stunning instruments that are more than adequate for getting to grips with the finer points of becoming a working musician".

"These brilliant instruments are a steal at this price point... in fact it's hard to think of any bass range that offers so much quality for so little money".
