Because of the crossover area between acoustic and electric upright basses, Mo has become involved in provision of strings, pickups, amplifiers etc and is able to carry out setups, bridge replacements, fitting bridge height adjusters and minor repairs to double basses. He is usually able to supply the following as a mail order service, subject to availability.
David Gage ‘Realist’ pickups for bass, cello, viola or violin. £150
Gallien Kruger Amplifiers
Acoustic Image Amplifiers
Picato ‘Innovation strings - £80
For other parts or accessories, please e-mail or phone
for prices & availability.
Also available is the ‘Clifton Tail-lift’, a clever little gizmo which reduces the bridge angle (and therefore the string tension) on acoustic basses which feel too tight to play comfortably. £58 for the DIY kit
Sorry, the tail-lift is no longer available but I’ve left the photos here in case anyone wants to copy the idea
