If you wear a belt or buck on your trousers or dress
when you play your instrument - then this luxurious yet hard wearing
piece of fabric is an absolute life saver - for its function
is to protect those precious layers of varnish on the back of your
pride and joy from receiving any nasty scratches or scrapes.
Yes. Don't worry if you don't wear any belts of buckles
- for the bib also provides another life saving function. There
are three large pockets at the bottom of the bib into which you'll
be able to store all those little bits and bobs that most bass players
seem to accumulate to help get them through the rehearsal or gig.
You know the sort of stuff - there's your resin, a pencil,
a tuning fork, a duster, elastoplasts for sore fingers and of course
the odd bag of sweets that you intend to pass around the section
when it seems that the rehearsal is never going to end. Ever played
the symphonies of Arnold Bax? I could go on but I'm sure that you've
got the idea just how useful this bass bib really is. Oh and I nearly
forgot to mention that the middle pocket has been designed so that
you can slot you're music into it. Marvellous indeed.
What's the bib made from and why?
This superb "full-length" bass bib has
been hand-machined in England especially to The Contrabass Shoppe's
own design and specifications. The material used is a "needle-point"
(fine) corduroy and was selected because of its multi-quality combination.
The qualities are:
- High durability combined with
a softness of fabric.
- Sleek looks combined with a minimal tendency to
- Optimum weight of material - to enable it to "hang"
How do I tie the bib onto my bass?
The bib is secured to the instrument by a pull-chord
that runs through the top of the bib. The chord is tied into a bow
underneath the neck block.
What about the colour?
The colour is black or brown because:
- They are the most appropriate colours for the stage
or concert platform.
- They enhance the hues of your instrument's
varnish exceedingly well.
- These are the colours of choice by popular demand.
Will it fit my bass?
Yes - it's a design that will fit all shapes and
This beautiful made bib is just so functional. It
certainly stops all those belt and buckle scratches and the huge
pockets at the bottom will look after all those bits and bobs that
you regularly use.
