    West Music is proud to offer a huge selection of electric and acoustic basses and bass guitar accessories!

    The bass guitar is the backbone of almost any song, holding down the rhythm for the rest of the band. Their deep sound lays the harmonic foundation for a memorable tune, adding dynamic layers to the performance that no other instrument can provide.

    Electric bass guitars, acoustic basses, and bass guitar packs are available for all musician levels at West Music and in a variety of styles. Outside of the traditional electric style basses, acoustic models offer more versatility, allowing the player to use the instrument plugged-in for larger venues and unplugged for smaller ensembles. Beginners can't go wrong with a starter bass package from West Music. These include everything needed to start playing - axe, amp and accessories like a gig bag, picks, and stand.

    Unlike the standard guitar, the bass guitar, often referred to as the electric bass, plays by plucking, slapping, and popping. Other play styles, including punk rock and heavy metal, demand faster tempos, requiring players to pick their strings. The most common bass models have 4 strings although 5- and 6-string instruments are available. Although the bass has been around since the 1930s, it wasn't until the 1950s that Leo Fender created the first electric basses for mass production. Since then, it has become a staple in almost every style of music.
