Westbury Double Basses

I am very proud to endorse Westbury double basses, distributed in the UK by The Sound Post Ltd.

I have owned my Westbury since September 2009, and since then we have travelled and performed all over the United Kingdom together.

Aesthetically, I was immediately drawn to the violin body model which looks simply beautifully, and is complimented by a hand carved figured maple and spruce body, ebony fingerboard, top-nut, pegs and tailpiece, and a Despiau bridge.


I use Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Weich strings, and have done for the last couple of years. They feel and sound fantastic!

The bass comes with a solid bridge as standard, but I had adjusters fitted as well as my Wilson K4 pickup, which I put through a Radial Engineering Tonebone PZ-Pre-amp when doing any live work.


Although The Sound Post Ltd do not deal to the public directly (only trade), they are some of the most helpful and wonderful people I have the pleasure of knowing, and will be more than happy to let you know who your nearest stockist is for any of their instruments and products.  You can contact them on 01985 851122 or, and visit them online at
