Commissions of Design Your Bass Models

For bassists wanting an instrument of their own design (travel neck, custom string length, five string, etc) please contact me to discuss financing details. Full financing can be secured through Noteworthy Credit Union, or your own lender.


Musician and artist-led Noteworthy Credit Union based in Cleveland, Ohio offers instrument loans at reasonable rates. This lending organization understands how musicians’ careers and income streams work. They offer the flexibility to help you afford the doublebass you deserve, and there is no penalty for early payoff. As an example, let’s finance a $40,000 Lloyd bass:
$4,000 deposit, 7 year loan= $570 per month
$10,000 deposit, 6 year loan= $533 per month
$20,000 deposit, 5 year loan= $410 per month
These figures are relative to an excellent credit rating and used for example only.


In addition to my bass models I am open to building copies of requested older basses. Contact me for more information.


All original materials and workmanship are under lifetime warranty. All tonewood used in my basses has been properly seasoned and air-dried in my shop for at least 3 years before construction.


Most customers choose to pick up their doublebass at my shop once completed. I also offer reasonable domestic shipping via FedEx Freight. International delivery is available for my customers; contact me for a delivery quote.
