Shadow Rockabilly Pro Double Bass Pickup SH RB-PRO


The Shadow Rockabilly Pro has two different pickups and excellently reproduces the slap bass sound, essential for every rockabilly double bass player.


The Shadow Rockabilly Pro or SH RB-PRO has been designed to work with two separate pickups, one pickup is for the bridge and a specially designed pickup goes behind the fingerboard. This set up makes it great for reproducing the slap sound, essential for every rockabilly double bass player.

The Shadow Rockabilly Pro has been developed in cooperation with the legendary rockabilly double bass player Didi Beck. Didi is well known on the European rockabilly scene and has released several books and DVDs for learning and practising the art of rockabilly slap bass.

Existing systems made by other companies were good ideas but some lacked in sound and quality. Didi wanted Shadow to make the perfect system. The Rockabilly Pro was developed by Shadow in collaboration between Didi Beck.Marrying Didi Beck’s professional playing and Shadow’s expertise in sound quality and electronics. Shadow worked out an ultimate system which is unbeatable in sound, quality, and adjustment!

Of course, you can use this system for other styles of bass playing like jazz, country, classic, and so on. For this just reduce the amount of fingerboard volume to your own taste.
