Here's what a recent customer had to say about it in response to someone else asking him about it: "I live within driving distance of FMI. He let me pick it up directly from him. So I couldn't really tell you about the shipping. It is without out a doubt the best sounding bass "out of the box" I have ever owned. It sounds way better than the Engelhardt or Glassells I have tried. For the price you can't beat it. I recommend you get one. This is the same bass Sam Ash was selling for much more. I plan on buying another as a spare later this year. You will find that Tom Is a very honest and good man. Bryan"

  • Select laminated spruce top

    And another customer: "Hi Tom, the bass I ordered arrived and is in good order. It plays well and has a good sound, I have no problem recommending you to my friends. Thanks again, Don (MB-12 3/4 Upright Bass)"

    $159 shipping to Qualified Commercial addresses not more than 300 miles or so from our shop in Pasadena, CA.

    A Qualified* Commercial Address is defined as a business address in an area that is incorporated or “Zoned” Commercial and where a large truck has “easy access” (a shipping & receiving dock or a place that is directly adjacent to an entrance not requiring any additional handling, i.e.; stairs or anything past the front door.
    There are additional handling charges for those and other services). When choosing the “Commercial Address” option below be sure to include the name of the Company in the shipping address in the checkout process.

    $159 Shipping to “Qualified* Commercial Address” requires the address to be located within 30 minutes, or so, of a major city, on major U.S. shipping arteries and not more than 300 miles or so from our shop in Pasadena Ca.

    Shipping rates can vary greatly depending on where you live. More remote commercial shipping addresses on the East Coast, New England, New York, New Jersey as well as Florida or the upper Midwestern States such as North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio, for example, require additional shipping charges usually running between $85 and $165, but in the most crowded or remote areas can add on up to $220. These types of shipping destinations are more expensive to ship to from us here in California.

    The customer will need to make up the difference between the initial $159 shipping and the actual shipping costs. In any case, FMI will contact you if there is additional shipping due.
    Shipping to a residential address is $65 more to any State as it takes special handling by the freight line.
