Heartland String Bass Shop produces custom low C&B extensions in a variety of styles and models. Extensions are available in chromatic C, double stop C, single stop C, and B models. Every extension is custom fit over the scroll with as little modification to the bass as possible.
Heartland String Bass Shop works with each client to determine their specific requirements and to customize the instrument’s features in order to accommodate those needs. Each extension is a unique expression of the individual client’s desire for a more complete instrument, coupled with the esthetic sense and superior workmanship of Heartland String Bass Shop. Every extension features integral construction. Other custom features are available, including: thumb rests, wheel-free construction, solid ebony, or ebony/ composite construction. Our goal is to provide the finest quality workmanship that produces exceptional playability, accompanied by a masterful visual esthetic sense.
Heartland String Bass Shop produces basses by using the finest materials available and crafting them to our own design. Basses are constructed of select maple back, sides & neck with a spruce top. Everything is crafted within our shop; no kits are involved. By exercising complete control over the entire bass-building process, we can produce a bass that provides superior tonal quality, massive projection, and exquisite playability.
In addition to original basses, Heartland String Bass Shop’s inventory includes finely restored basses. Call Heartland String Bass Shop for inventory and pricing information.
