Building on the high level of quality achieved in the SLB300, this model offers tone that is remarkably close to acoustic bass plus even further refined playability. With appearance, specifications, and performance that befit the high-end jazz scene, the SLB300PRO goes beyond the standard definition of electric upright bass with unlimited musical potential.

Upgraded Fingerboard and Neck Materials
With an ebony fingerboard, which is a rare feature on an upright bass, and a beautiful curly maple neck, this instrument offers outstanding response as well as natural tone playability.

Improved Bridge
In addition to featuring A.R.E treatment*, the thickness of the maple bridge has been carefully optimized for this instrument. Aluminum adjusters specially selected for the SLB300PRO also provide a notable upgrade that contributes to improved response and clear tone.

*A.R.E stands for Acoustic Resonance Enhancement, an innovative process that matures the wood in a short period of time to achieve tone and resonance that would normally only be found in an older instrument that has been played for many years.

Dedicated SLB300PRO Tailwire
Tail wire that previously consisted of 49 x 0.22-millimeter strands has been upgraded to a more flexible wire consisting of 343 x 0.06-millimeter strands. A flexible tail wire developed specially for the SLB300PRO contributes to soft body resonance and response that are similar to those of acoustic instruments.

Improved Machine Heads
The tuning machine head handles are machined out of heavy-duty stock and feature an original shape for smooth, easy operation. Overall durability and operability have been significantly improved.

Features
• Three microphone types, EQ, and blend control deliver ideal sound
• Designed to require no change from standard acoustic bass technique
• Refined exterior for high-end jazz scene
• Supplied soft case for easy transportation
• Easy setup

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
