“I won my audition with your bass… extremely comfortable… tonal complexity and raw power… your instrument is a joy to play… it’s more than I dreamed of…”

Exceptional Doublebass Luthiery

Welcome to Nick Lloyd Basses

From outline to neck set to string length to setup, each Lloyd doublebass is designed by you and crafted individually by myself. Prices start at $38,000. Visit Design Your Bass to see what kind of doublebass I can build to suit your needs, and feel free to email or call with any questions.

Travel Neck

As every musician knows, instruments are very personal tools. Doublebasses have no set string length, outline, or aesthetic. Design a custom Lloyd doublebass that best fits your body size, travel needs, and overall style.
