Single Pickup Perfection

Inspired by a deep passion for vintage instrument design and informed by the Bass Centre's decades-long communication with professional players and customers throughout the world, a truly iconic design has been re-imagined to blend period accurate looks and a classic sound with a modern, lightweight construction and a super fast, satin finish neck.

"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" — JAZZWISE MAGAZINE

With its cool retro styling, wide choice of classic colour and pickguard combinations, powerful authentic tone, flawless finish and expert set-up, the Power Bass is an affordable, pro-grade instrument that represents astonishing value for money with a build quality and performance genuinely regarded by players and music industry pundits as being consistent with instruments twice the price.

Upgrade to Babicz for Full Contact

The Babicz Full Contact Hardware system is available on all applicable Bass Collection models as either standard issue or as an optional upgrade. As the name implies, this revolutionary new approach to bridge technology ensures full contact between the vibrating string and the body of the instrument, maximising sustain and tonal response. Courtesy of its patented eCam saddle technology, the Babicz design also provides enhanced stability and fully lockable, precision adjustment for string height and intonation.

Alternatively, you can choose to upgrade your brand new Bass Collection instrument with a classic Leo Quan Badass Bass II or hyper-modern Hipshot KickAss™ hi-mass bridge. 

The Personal Touch

All Bass Collection and British Bass Masters instruments are re-strung and set up prior to despatch by Chris Ward, long serving Bass Centre tech since 1984. Accordingly, you can choose which gauge and type of Elites Strings you prefer and specify set-up requirements (please use the "Comments" field when you check out).

BASS COLLECTION

Jive Bass / Power Bass

Jazzwise Magazine • March 2011

"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."

 

Jive Bass / Power Bass

Gareth Morgan • Guitar & Bass Magazine • July 2010

"Classy and impressively accurate takes on two classic templates (with) authentic sounds & an excellent level of build quality"

In G&B's annual round-up of the year's most impressive gear, Bass Collection swept the board in the "BEST BASS GUITAR UNDER £1,000" category, with the Jive Bass crowned the winner and the single pickup Power Bass in second place.

 

Jive Bass

Dan Veall • Guitar Interactive • December 2013

"The attention to detail is welcome, not only in the feel of the neck profile but also in that this instrument is nicely balanced and surprisingly lightweight. A very good bass for not a lot of money."

 

Speakeasy Pro 4

Gareth Morgan • Guitar & Bass Magazine • February 2014

"A well put-together & handsome-looking bass... it’s fair to say that its modern good looks and fine playability make it an instrument that many will be happy to pay a little extra for."

 

Speakeasy

Ian Glasper • Bass Guitar Magazine • October 2014

"Exceptionally well built and finished for the price tag – a joy to play... small and perfectly formed, these guitars are easy on both the eye and the ear"

 

Bespoke Jive Bass

Joe Hubbard Bass Videos • April 2017

"Lightweight, resonant and extremely versatile... I really love this instrument and I’d recommend it to anybody looking for that classic J-Bass design at a super-affordable price point."

 

BRITISH BASS MASTERS

The Guy Pratt Betsy Bass

Mike Brooks • Bass Guitar Magazine • February 2020

"An absolute joy to play... a cool finish, playability and comfort by the bucketload, and a tonal performance that out-boxes many a bass at double the price. The Bass Centre have a winner on their hands."

 

The Bruce Thomas Profile Bass

 Joel McIver • Bass Guitar Magazine • January 2016

GEAR OF THE YEAR 2016 — BEST FRETTED BASS UNDER £500
"Bravo, chaps... a wonderful bass that you will not want to stop playing. And all for £495? A great F*nder alternative... Snap one up if you can."

 

The Bass Centre Wyman Bass

Gareth Morgan • Guitar & Bass Magazine • September 2011

"An excellent mix of passive tones... if you're looking for a bass that's a little different, the Wyman is a welcome new contender."

 

The Bass Centre Wyman Bass

Roger Newell • Guitarist Magazine • December 2012

"Pros: Compact & lightweight, super fat.
 Cons: Provided you like the small proportions, there's nothing to dislike!"

 

The Bass Centre Wyman Bass

 Ken Sanders Bass • Guitar Magazine • July 2015

"A great Fender-ish vintage rock 'n' roll tone which will sit perfectly in any blues trio... it continues the company’s tradition for quality basses at affordable prices."

 

The Brian May Bass

Roger Newell • Guitarist Magazine • September 2012

"Well styled and nicely built... If you want something off the beaten track this has a great deal to offer... delightful to play, with its own character and sounds - recommended."

 

The Brian May Bass

Gareth Morgan • Guitar & Bass Magazine • August 2014

"A fine-looking beast with a heap of '60s flavour which harks back to wilder times. The basic sound is excellent; nice & fat with growling lows & an overall feeling of controlled aggression."
