Bob’s House of Basses is an interesting place to shop for bass gear. Their inventory is not nearly as large as some of the other online bass retailers, but what they carry tends to be affordable and of a high quality.
Their bass string prices are the lowest I’ve seen–the string I use (Pirastro Permanents) are being sold for $30 less per set ($120 versus $150) than what I usually find.
They also carry a reasonably priced flight case, a good quality soft padded bass bag for about $100 less than a standard Mooradian case, and a really good bass wheel. The one problem with the wheel is that they always seem to be sold out. If you’re in the market for a bass wheel you can get Bob’s Bass Wheel for $65 (versus $125 for the Gaines bass wheel), but you’ll likely have to wait for a while before it comes in the mail.
