Excellent Strings, Excellent Service.
Tuesday, 9 June 2020  |  Laurence

I am hugely impressed. These strings are noticeably louder than the Rotosounds they replaced. How do you manage to make strings with higher volume? The strings are very slick and comfortable to play. Most importantly, the tone is beautiful too.

The service is very professional. I met Barry at the 2019 London Bass Guitar Show. He obviously knows everybody in the bass world, but he still has time to give help and advice to the 'man in the street'. Thank you

You can't miss the Betsy
Thursday, 28 May 2020  |  Luca

Since I am a fan of Guy Pratt's bass style since 30 years, I cannot resist to purchase the Betsy bass replica.Even if having a fairly low price, it is a pretty nice bass that works much better than you can expect from. If you are a Guy Pratt fan you can immediately recognize its classic sound when playing this instrument.

It has a comfortable, easy to play, slim neck and a very good overall balance. The only detail I can complain about is the total absence of finish at the back of the neck. I asked to my luthier to add a coat of tone and glossy finish.

The bass came with soft bag and a copy of Guy Pratt's book.

The overall service from shop and staff has been very good!

If you are a Pratt sound fan and you want a greatly playable instrument at a fairly low price you can't miss the Betsy.

I love my NS WAV 5-string EUB!
Thursday, 21 May 2020  |  Iain

I bought a WAV 5-string EUB and loved it from the moment I started playing it. I have not altered the action at all as it's pretty much perfect for me. I play it through a Fishman Platinum Pro EQ as a pre-amp and the sound is amazing. This is the first EUB I have used and can highly recommend it.

Big thanks also to Barry at the Bass Centre for his help and advice.

Found my sound

The Detroit Flats from Bass Centre are excellent.

After trying a few different brands of flatwounds over the past few years, I am really happy to have stumbled across these. Sound just as good as strings twice their price. Punchy with a bit of rasp, just how I like my strings to sound. Pleased to say I have found my strings and will be buying these flats as and when I need a new set.

Great service from Bass Centre too!

Betsy is a keeper!

Iíve owned about 30 basses in my lifetime (including some USA Jazz basses) and this is the best bass Iíve ever owned.

I was a little nervous ordering a bass sight unseen, but the gamble paid off. Set up was perfect right out of the box, action is low and fast, no rough fret edges, the pickups are dead quiet, the color is gorgeous - itís a total home run. And thatís before taking the price into consideration. Even shipped to the USA, the price is ridiculously low. In almost 30 years of playing Iíve never seen this kind of quality in a bass in this price range. I hate to sound like a shill, but Iíve barely put the bass down since I got it; just ask my wife!

In short, Iíll shout it from the mountains....if you are in the market for a Jazz Bass, THIS IS THE ONE YOU WANT!

Amazing little thing
Tuesday, 28 April 2020  |  Jesper

Amazing little combo. Super fast, loud for its size. Clean and focused sound. Also great for rehearsing at low levels at home.

Excellent advice and service
Sunday, 26 April 2020  |  Phillip

Iím a total novice and no previous experience of guitar playing. I was referred to the Bass Centre by a friend after carrying out extensive research. I left a message and within 30 minutes Barry returned my call, I explained to him my lack of knowledge. His advice was spot on, he told me exactly what I needed (and didnít need), explained the process and he and his admin team kept me updated until the bass arrived.

Excellent advice and service and would have no hesitation in recommend the Bass Centre.
