Headway The Band Double Bass pickup:

This pickup is used equally in folk/rock and classical situations and is a favourite with sound engineers and players alike as it offers far greater volume levels before feedback, compared to other mics. You can avoid being tied down to mic stands and The Band cuts feedback, bowing noise, body noise and excessive treble by acoustic filter.

A Highly recommended, best selling product. Also available for Violin, Viola, or Cello

    :

    I love this pickup – it’s been my first choice for most of the gigs I’ve played in the last five years or so. It’s really easy to attach and remove, and very robust. It gives a strong signal without the need for a pre-amp, but with a pre-amp it gives a rich, complex sound that really cuts through when you’re playing with a big band. It’s worked well for me on a cheap laminate Rockabilly bass and an old carved Bohemian hatpeg – the Band’s strongest suit is the accuracy of the sound it reproduces.
    On a slight tangent… I went to Caswells for the first time today on the off-chance that they could fix a broken endpin screw. Emma and Lance couldn’t have been more helpful, kindly cannibalising another (much nicer) endpin so I could leave with a playable bass. I couldn’t have asked for more – thank you!
