Bass Fiddles

Bass Fiddles (Bass Violins) have been the standard instrument to carry the bass line in bluegrass bands since Bill Monroe and his Bluegrass Boys. While some bands use electric or acoustic bass guitars, the bass fiddle remains, by far, the instrument of choice. And to be precise, it is actually the three-quarter size bass violin that is the standard of the bluegrass band. A full size bass is just too large to be practical for most bands. While the legendary Kay bass is the Holy Grail of bass fiddles, they are no longer made. We offer some great import basses that are great sounding and playing instruments are an affordable price.
