BassWorks is a small family business located in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia.
We sell a large range of Double Basses (over 100 basses of all sizes in stock), Cellos in a variety of sizes and also Double Bass and Cello Accessories.
Since 1990, BassWorks has run regular concerts and double bass workshops in Australia. Gary Karr, Nicholas Walker, François Rabbath, Etienne Lafrance and George Vance are some of the international bass players who have participated in BassWorks events.
We offer a wide range of services:
- Double bass making, restoration and repairs
- Bow making, repairs and rehairing
- Double Bass Tuition
- General repairs for double bass, cello, viola & violin
Instruments for both children and adults are prepared in our workshop by experienced craftsmen, who are also string players, and understand how an instrument should be set up for comfort and easy playability. The profits from sales contribute towards promoting events for the training of young string players.
We are open by appointment only, 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday, and other times by arrangement. Please phone 8278 2016 or email to book an appointment.
