Brass Bass Extensions with installation $1350.00
Brass Slide-C Bass Extension
These extensions are truly unique. They are easy to install, easy to adjust and do not mutilate the scroll like other extensions.
The slide extension is ONLY for Jazz players. Having no gates allows the player to improvise playing notes, below the slide, on the extension fingerboard with their fingers. The slide extension also does not work for orchestral playing because of the time it takes to move the slide from the E position to the 'general position' of the lowest note needed. The gated extension is for classical orchestra players that want the gates to be set at 'precise positions' of the lowest notes needed. That way when the E gate is flipped open then the lowest note in the music can already be pre-set with another gate above.
Our extensions are made of brass and help conduct the acoustic vibrations through the scroll. Their construction and weight of 2.5 lbs. actually increase the volume and depth of sound on the 'E' string after it is installed.
- The brass extension with ebony fingerboard has a unique sliding, self-clamping gate.
- The string glides effortlessly on rollers through the body of the extension and around the scroll.
- The extension can be easily adjusted to fit on any bass without cutting into the scroll.
