String Emporium, The Upright Bass Specialist,
Violins and Instrument Cases
The String Emporium specializes in the upright bass. We
pride ourselves on offering only the very best
upright basses. For every price range, whether it is for a
super affordable Thompson plywood bass ($1,485), a Thopmson Hybrid
(with carved top), or our famous fully carved Wan-Bernadel, Rogeri
basses that we offer, we have the best quality instrument (most
value for your money), in ever price range. The best way to
explain this, is that for every price point, our basses and prices
will always be far better than anything else in that range. For our
plywood bass, one will not be able to find a same top quality, for
under $2,000, that we only sell for $1,485, with our same, full
professional set up and high quality parts and strings. All of
our new basses, are made exclusively for String Emporium and so we
are able to offer bigger discounts to our customers. Even for
our other brands that we offer, Shen, Wilfer, Pollman, our prices
will always be much more competitive here. When customers
combine our competitive prices and then see and play how we set up
our basses here (even our lower end ones), they are always happy
with the results. Every bass that leaves our shop is
guaranteed to be of the very highest level.
String Emporium is your "One-Stop Bass Shop"
Great quality basses in every price range and level. Bass
bows, of high quality. Even our affordable entry level S.E.
Brazilwood bow is made exclusively for us which offers a high
quality 'useful' bow. Our bass strings are very competively
priced which we still have the lowest prices in the world. Some
pages require password entry, but that is because of our special
(low) price points. Every instrument, bow, and accessory that
we offer is time tested for high quality, usefulness and
affordablity. We will only sell products that we here as
professional bass players ourselves, would want or use: No junk, no
matter how cheap, we will never offer here.
