3. Vibrating metronome: Soundbrenner Pulse

Yes, we may be cheating by displaying our own product but we really do believe that the foundation of a great bass player is being able to play on a steady beat.

Beginners and proficient players alike need to practice with a metronome – beginners will often play really slow on complicated parts of the song and then play quickly through their favorite parts. In order to keep the same tempo – they need to use a metronome!

Why a vibrating metronome? Feeling the beat through vibrations also gets around the problem of not hearing the metronome, especially when you’re dealing with deep tones.

Soundbrenner Pulse is the world’s first vibrating metronome – this innovation will surprise your bass players.

4. Bass amplifier: Trace Elliot ELF Ultra Compact Bass Amplifier

If you have a gigging friend or if perhaps you are a bassist yourself and would like to gift yourself something a little more than $200 USD, we recommend the Elf bass AMP. This is one of the smallest yet most powerful bass amplifiers out there. It has a clean output without complicating EQ. It also comes with a Nylon carrying bag that should protect it from that gigging lifestyle.

Starts at $350 USD

5. Maintenance set: MusicNomad The Nomad Tool Set

If you want a simpler gift we recommend a good cleaning tool set. All types of guitarists need this! It will help prolong the life of and preserve the tone of your current strings.

6. Guitar pick: Original Dragon’s Heart

As much as people don’t want to admit it – guitar picks actually play a role in the way your stringed instrument sounds. Our favorite is this odd shaped guitar pick – it claims 1000 hours of durability. It measures 2.5mm in thickness and caters to different playing styles.

Gift this to your bassist and you’ll see a consistent balanced attack.

Fender’s line Squier has always been the easiest and most popular choice for younger beginners or small players – with its short 30“ scale length. It is light, sounds great and is inexpensive. You can be sure to play alternative rock and progressive metal straight out of the box. It has a slim and comfortable “C”-shaped neck profile, and a single-coil Bronco Bass pickup. You can last the entire gig carrying its thin and lightweight body. Its satin finish neck makes it easy to slide through the fret.
