Get ready to take the stage by storm with your groovy tunes. Whether you’re a seasoned bassist or just starting out, having the right bass accessories at your fingertips can make all the difference in your performance.

That’s why we’ve put together a list of the top 10 must-have bass accessories. Let’s dive in and make sure you’re prepared to hit those low notes with finesse.

1. Soundbrenner’s wearable metronomes

Say goodbye to traditional metronomes and elevate your bass playing with the Soundbrenner Core and Pulse vibrating metronomes. Designed to make music practice addictive, these innovative devices let you “feel” the beat through powerful vibrations, seven times stronger than the average smartphone. Easily adjust BPM, time signature, and more to tailor your practice sessions. Wear it anywhere—wrist, arm, or even shoulder—thanks to the included straps (for Core and Core Steel only).

The Core goes beyond just a metronome, doubling as a contact tuner for precise tuning and a dB meter to protect your ears in noisy environments. Want more? Use it as a smartwatch to receive notifications and keep track of time. With a multi-day battery life and splash-resistant design, this is the ultimate bass accessory for any serious bassist.

2. Straps

Whether you like practising with your band, performing live, or simply playing your bass while standing up, you must find a sturdy bass guitar strap that provides great comfort and security. It is one of the most important bass accessories that you should never forget while packing for a performance.

3. Stomp Bluetooth foot pedal

Introducing Stomp, the ultimate Bluetooth foot pedal that every bass player needs in their bass accessories toolkit. Engineered for the modern musician, this pedal is not just a page-turner but an app controller that makes navigating through your setlist a breeze—all with a simple tap of your foot.

Made in the US, its rugged, metal enclosure is built to withstand even the most demanding gigs, promising first-class tactile feedback with its silent buttons. Customize its 6 buttons to control various functionalities in your favourite music apps, from swiping through chord charts to starting your metronome.

But that’s not all; the Stomp offers multiple power options, running for an impressive 150+ hours on a single 9V battery. Even better, plug it into a 9VDC adapter to charge your phone or tablet through its built-in USB port while you’re laying down those grooves. With a 50+ foot range and compatibility across multiple devices, the Stomp ensures that you—and your band—never miss a beat.

4. Extra strings

Strings are to bassists what wings are to birds – essential! Pack an extra set of strings in your kit of bass accessories to stay ready for any unexpected snaps. A broken string mid-performance won’t bring your rhythm to a halt if you’re prepared.

5. Minuendo lossless earplugs

Protect your hearing without compromising on sound quality with Minuendo lossless earplugs. Engineered for musicians, these are the world’s first-ever variable passive Hi-Fi earplugs that deliver natural, crystal-clear sound thanks to their patented membrane technology and flat frequency response.

Unlike traditional foam earplugs, there’s zero muffled sound or frequency degradation. Adjust your listening experience on the fly, from -7dB to -25dB, finding your perfect acoustic sweet spot. Ideal for any setting—be it concerts, gigs, or rehearsals—these earplugs come with a magnetic locking system and leash, so they’re always within reach. With eleven sets of ear tips to choose from, you’re guaranteed a snug, leak-free fit. This amazing bass accessory is a must-have for any discerning bassist.

6. Strap locks

Don’t let a falling strap disrupt your rocking performance. Strap locks keep your bass securely fastened, allowing you to move and dance without worry. Indeed they are an essential bass accessory needed to streamline your performances.

7. Cables

A high-quality instrument cable ensures your bass sound reaches the amplifier without any loss of tone. A reliable cable is a small investment in your collection of bass accessories but it makes a big difference in your sound quality.


8. Allen wrench set

Your bass might need occasional adjustments, and having a set of Allen wrenches handy lets you fine-tune the action, tie rod, and other components on the rush. This set is a must-have bass accessory to avoid any hurdles in your performance.

9. Portable stand

A portable stand keeps your bass off the ground when not in use, preventing accidental damage and making it easily accessible during rehearsals and gigs. Keep it in your bag of essential bass accessories to ensure a smooth performance.

10. Amplifier

If you have a bass, it can be tough to hear how you genuinely sound without having something that produces a tone for you, and that’s precisely what an amplifier is for. It is the perfect bass accessory you need to take your performance to the next level.

Of course, you can technically play without an amplifier, but you’ll improve much faster by having one because you can get a better picture of what your playing sounds like and find things to improve upon. Make sure to get a real bass amplifier and not a regular guitar amplifier.
