Where Innovation Meets Timeless Quality





Once upon a time, the world of instrument building was a daunting challenge. Innovation abounded, but quality components were few and far between. But we, at New York Bass Works, braved those dark days, pushing the boundaries and weathering the storm to create instruments that would stand the test of time.


In those early days, we had limited options - just a few choices for pickups, electronics, and a domestic hardware supplier. It was tough, but we persevered, determined to deliver instruments that would captivate musicians and elevate their performances.


Fast forward 20 plus years, and the landscape has transformed. The smorgasbord of options is enticing, but for us, one thing remains constant: our commitment to unwavering quality and innovation. We've witnessed an explosion of components and hardware flooding the market, but we know that the true measure of excellence lies in our ears and our passion.


At New York Bass Works, we refuse to compromise on quality. Our instruments are not just crafted; they are curated with meticulous attention to detail. We scrutinize every component to the Nth degree, ensuring that each element harmonizes perfectly with the others, creating a symphony of sound that resonates on the world stage, in the studio, and even in your own private sanctuary.


But what sets us apart in this age of abundance? It's the essence of who we are. We don't just follow trends; we set them. We don't merely seek out the latest innovations; we create them. Our instruments are more than just tools; they are an extension of your artistry, enabling you to reach new heights and unlock your full potential as a musician.


When you hold a New York Bass Works instrument in your hands, you're not just holding wood and bits of metal; you're holding decades of passion, dedication, and craftsmanship. Our instruments are not just built; they are infused with soul, crafted to inspire and endure.


We understand that reliability is paramount, whether you're playing on the world stage, in the studio, or simply jamming in your garage or basement. With a New York Bass Works instrument, you can trust that every note will ring true, every chord will resonate, and every performance will be elevated to greatness.

So, as the world offers an overwhelming abundance of choices, we invite you to trust your ears, to feel the difference that true dedication to quality makes. Come and experience the sound that awaits you with a New York Bass Works instrument. Embrace innovation, embrace timelessness, and let your music soar to new heights.
