Reliably informed

Bass Base, located on Shields Road in Gateshead, is the region’s only dedicated bass guitar and amplification shop, open now within Ginger Music Company. As the organisers themselves are musicians too, and they run a rehearsal space too, they’re more than aware of the needs of musicians, as Dee Dowling explains:

“We’re really excited about the opening of Bass Base. It wasn’t until we came to the realisation that almost everyone who works here at Ginger Music Company plays the bass that we thought, ‘you know what, we should specialise…!’ There isn’t really a store anywhere just for bass players in the area, so we are determined to offer a professional and all round service, stock many kinds of strings and accessories and most importantly, listen and get the stuff in that people want instead of them having to search online. And because the store is inside a rehearsal and recording studio we’re open until 10pm most nights. We’ve got some great opening offers and are running a reward scheme too.”

Bass Base is located at Unit 4 Stonehills Studio Complex, Shields Road, Gateshead
