Bass-ically Amazing

The Bass-ics.

The bass guitar is one of the most outrageously cool instruments around.  Whether it be an upright, acoustic or electric, the bass guitar is that driving force behind any great song.  When the bass player starts to lay down that thick and precise bass line for the rest of the band to walk on, people’s hearts begin to almost jump out of their chests.

It’s Bass-ically Electric.

Electric basses have taken the music world by storm and have given players the ability to expand and increase their bass horizons.  Once again, Fender has taken the guitar world by the horns and drove out the Fender Jazz Bass, Fender Precision Bass, and their latest musical achievement, the Fender Dimension Bass.  These basses all kick some serious tail and also put out some of the greatest electric bass sounds around.  If you don’t believe me, see for yourself in the video below.

How to Bass-ically Achieve Greatness.

In order to properly grasp how great these basses are, you gotta stop by and play on them!  If you want to properly achieve the highest echelon of your bass playing career, you should pick up one of these Fender basses.  Here at Willis Music, we offer a HUGE selection of Fender basses and we are constantly getting more and more in.  We have both closeout deals and brand-spanking new basses of all kinds.

That’s Bass-ically all I gotta say!

Musicians work hard, but they enjoy a great laugh as much as anyone. Below are some player-friendy jokes sure to bring a smile or two.

Our Fantastic Teaching Staff

We tend to take them for granted and don’t talk about them enough so just wanted to take a second to introduce our fantastic teaching staff here at Moeller of Willis Music West Chester!

 

Check out their bios here! Or better yet,  just go ahead and sign up for lessons here!

 

We offer guitar, bass, drums, piano, keyboard, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, coronet,  bass clarinet, violin, viola, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, and voice lessons and perhaps a few I forgot to mention.

Big Bass Sale!

Due to someone experimenting with gravity using Fender basses, we have 6 basses marked with prices that hit the floor almost as hard as the basses did. These basses go thump, in every sense of the word. If you’re looking for a bass at the big bottom price, look no further than Willis Music in Eastgate.

No, seriously, we have some basses with minor bumps and bruises that need a new home and a little TLC. They still have full warranties, just some finish damage.

Happy 5th Year Aaron!
