I have a new EB MM Stingray 4... 2 band eq that is my favorite bass....but I miss the low B string on my 6 and 7 string basses.... Not anymore ... The double stop Xtender allows me to drop to a D and click again to a low B... I now have a 4 string bass that does what a 5 does without the extra "get in the way"factor! Hipshot rules the from the "bottom" to the top.
I play in a a band (El Sledge+) in which the guitarist employsthe NST (New Standard Tuning), a C pentatonic tuning where the guitar strings are tuned (from lowest to highest) as follows: C-G-D-A-E-G. So a bunch of songs are in the key of D or in related keys. The Hipshot bass extender thus gives me access to a low "D". Without this facility I'd have to sacrifice the robust richness of a low "D" and be forced to sound the "D" note in not-nearly-as-satisfactory/friendly positions that are not only higher but also must be sounded on the thinner gauged strings. The Hipshot Bass Extender is a simple yet amazingly clever innovation for bassists. I installed it myself in minutes using the simple and clear tutorial available at this site along with the writtien instructions included in the device's packaging. Orchids!

I just have to say you are without question the friendliest,service orientated,efficient and down to earth operation I ever had the pleasure of 'being involved' with as a customer.And Iask myself,and advise others,-----Why go anywhere else?
As for my extender,superb!! Opens up a huge array of benefits to the musical palette,including wonderful low-end pedal notes
reminiscent of a Bach Prelude! It can also give resolution to that riff you've always wanted to slot into some hard drivin' rock number.
Use one-It's that simple.
