Do I need a bass bib?

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.

Are there any music and accessory pockets?

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:

  1. High durability combined with a softness of fabric.
  2. Sleek looks combined with a minimal tendency to crease.
  3. Optimum weight of material - to enable it to "hang" properly.

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:

  1. They are the most appropriate colours for the stage or concert platform.
  2. They enhance the hues of your instrument's varnish exceedingly well.
  3. 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 sizes.

Summary:

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.

I want to buy a bib with an extra touch of luxury and exclusivity

If that's what you'd like Sir/Madam then this fully lined version - in a shimmering satin fabric and with near invisible seams and stitching will be absolutely perfect for you.

What choice of colours are there?
