Fantastic shop with a wide range of everything bass centric. Their own built basses are as good as anything on the market and very good value for money. Very knowledgeable staff and a really relaxed atmosphere. I have had two basses built for me and have bought amps and cabs as well as an excellent Rim six string. I can't recommend this shop highly enough.

I’ve gone there for repairs and have purchased a few basses before, most recently a Fender Aerodyne Jazz. It was set up before shipping and is honestly the best playing 4 string bass I’ve owned in my 15 years as a bassist. Fantastic service & knowledgeable staff.

Here you will find genuine, down to earth and passionate people, as well as all the bass gear you could possibly need. None of the pushy sales tactics which usually put me right off of buying anything or ever coming back to a music shop - I bought a bass and without me even asking they offered to pricematch, as well as a set up to my preference on the spot without extra charge. Definitely worth a visit for any bass player in or around London, especially if you also have an interest in motorcycles :) I will certainly be returning to Bass Gallery for any of my future bass needs. 10/10.

Amazing people who know their stuff and go above and beyond. I once went in with two basses, asked them to build a Frankenstein out of the two, it sounds and looks amazing. They never even hesitated. Covid makes it harder now but under normal circumstances, every bassist should go just to look around and you'll inevitably find something you didn't know you ever wanted but suddenly now need!

Fantastic service - I sent two guitars for servicing (including cracked neck) and they both came back absolutely perfect! I should mention they repair all guitars - not just bass!

Seriously, you will not find a better bass guitar shop. The place is absolutely packed to the roof with high quality new and second-hand bass guitars (and a few electric uprights too), amplification and pedals. Downstairs is a guitar workshop that you can truly trust with your guitars, new or vintage. On top of this, the staff are low-key, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Parking is not easy, although I usually find a space on the surrounding streets off-peak. The Bass Gallery is a treasure trove and if you play the bass, I challenge not to love the place...

The bass gallery,and more precisely "SEI" is to Camden town what "FODERA" is to Brooklyn...with a bit more details...options...pricing ethic...service...and less of the showing off factor or claiming. The "daddys" worth visiting if you're lucky enough to live in Europe,they also sell proper strings for all budgets,do accessories and serious BESPOKE with a big B woodwork for all kind of bass ,guitar,and who knows what kind of stringed'll never know if you're too shy to ring their bell.

Amazing place! I took my bass in for a set up and it came back playing better than it ever has. There's clearly a reason why these are guys are the go-to destination for people in the know. Extremely knowledgable and passionate. An awesome shop with great people!

The Bass Gallery could be renamed The Bass Player's Paradise! From the moment you walk in it's like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory to people who love candy! Bass guitars of all shapes and sizes. You can choose from 4, 5, 6 and even a 12 stringed bass. A fine selection of Head, cabinets, and combo amplifiers, the staff are so friendly and welcoming. You can 'feel' the energy surrounding you. I cannot recommend enough....go and see for yourself

I've finally found the bass that I was searching for a long time in this store, was super excited and ready to make the purchase, but all my emails across several days were ignored without any reason (except the very first one). So, the service left me very disappointed and confused.

Very friendly and kind staffs. I asked setup for my second hand bass, which was in a poor condition. But they did a wonderful job and it looks like new! Great collection of basses inside the shop. I highly recommend this shop!

My guitar feels like a new instrument after John(sp?)'s setup. I rang Guitar Guitar but they recommended the Bass Gallery, which I have to say I didn't know about, to me because their own workshop queue was too long... but provided I'm still in the area then next time I need it doing I'll just take it straight to the Bass Gallery anyway! Great, friendly, prompt and reasonably priced service.

Love this store. Bought an EBS amp from here and an Aria Precise ‘78. You go in, ask for what you want to try and you’re just left alone to play, no hard sell, even if you’re there for hours at a time. Plus, they can source almost anything bass related. Way better than your local music chain store, especially for bass players. Whatever you want, they can probably get.

Absolutely Great. My experience at the Gallery was fantastic. Both Charles and Martin were extremely helpful and so welcoming. Even got a sneaky look into Sei Bass. Really glad I spent an hour or two trying a few basses, they were even good enough to offer to adjust the action on my new 1977 Jazz bass when I was trying it out. Today was fantastic, customer service second to none. Friendly guys and very welcoming. I'll be going back for my next purchase! Thanks guys!

Brought my bass in for a set up and restringing. My bass is now singing true and I had a great time snooping around the gallery. No doubt I'll be back with more basses and may even treat myself to some new gear.

This is the best bass shop I have ever been to - a real hidden gem! The level and quality of stock they have is second to none, their vintage bass collection is most impressive, the Sei basses they make are superb, and the staff are really knowledgeable and very nice - you always get an excellent service! It’s the only bass shop I recommend to my students

The Best Bass Shop in London , more choice of great basses and amps than anywhere else . From the affordable to the exotic and everything in between . Check out their extensive collection online .

Great Bass place! Really good gear, best place in London to succumb to total GAS attacks if you live for the Deep End. And Martin, the owner, a really great guy. Go there, spend a few hours and enjoy!

Martin, John and Charlie are the best. EVERY time I've gone in with increasingly oblique ideas and specific mod and set up requirements - they've done it. Brilliant work at very reasonable prices, absolutely honest about what can and can't be achieved and aside from turning good instruments into great ones, they are happy to do a commission sale should you need to move gear on. Some of the basses in there are other-worldly. Check it out.
