Hipshot BT1 Bass Xtender
Does your music require you to quickly drop your bass’ tuning to a low E do D? You need the Hipshot BT1!
Stop retuning your bass guitar between songs. Hipshot’s Bass Xtenders allow you to drop your E string to D with just the flip of a lever. You can even drop as low as a C! Their Xtenders are easy to setup with the E tuning set with the traditional tuning button and the low postition set with the small thumb screw on the tuner body.
A typical setup for a bassist would be to use the detuner on the bottom string (E string) with the top position set to E and the bottom position set to D. This would all them to change their tuning from Standard (E, A, D, G) to Drop-D (D, A, D, G).
