FarWest Contemporary Electric Upright Basses

FarWest Contemporary Electric Upright Basses, Handmade Basses from Cornwall England

Since forming FarWest musical instruments in 2011, Proprietor Chris Balmforth is steadily gaining an international reputation for producing fine quality and contemporary electric upright basses that perform and play as good as they look.

Designed by a bass player with a ‘no compromise’ approach to all aspects, the aim is to produce an instrument of superior, performance, and tone.

Balmforth shares, “It is with great care that these basses are crafted from quality components, and fine environmentally sustainable and seasoned timber.”

Working from his small workshop in the far west of Cornwall England, Chris is responsible for all aspects of design and construction of these one off instruments. The fact they are genuinely handmade in small numbers makes every instrument different, full of character and style.

Chris comments, “Owning a FarWest bass delivers a comfortable and easy playing experience that will enhance any performance and is a truly unique experience, knowing that no one else in the world has a bass quite like yours.”
