Hi Friends! Eric Benson here, content manager for I Love Apparel. In addition to my passion for funny t-shirts, I also have a passion for music, specifically bass guitar. I actually started buying bass t-shirts from I Love Apparel before I started working here, the employee discount absolutely played into my decision to take the job!
With so many great shirts to choose from, I thought it might be useful to have a list of the top 10 bass shirts according to me. So whether you are looking for a shirt for yourself or for someone you love, here's where I think you should start.
10. Get Low
With a nod to a music staff with a bass clef right in the middle, this shirt clearly shares with the world what you like to do... Get Low.
A blend of the Adventures in Middle Earth and our favorite low end instrument in one shirt? Yes please!
This one is pretty self explanatory. A warning to the young ones... Don't discount those that have been around the sun a few more times. Simply put, old guys know how to groove!
What is it about the smell of bacon that draws us in? Just writing this I can imagine it sizzling in the pan on its way to make any other food better. I think bass is the same way, subtly adding the "missing piece" to any musical arrangement. I wear this one a lot!
Precision and Jazz. Obviously there are many other options for excellent basses, but these two iconic models have been the inspiration for so many others. This is a fun conversation starter and just a good looking shirt.
Simple and to the point. Let the world know exactly who you are. This shirt always gets me a lot of smiles and knowing nods.
I do know a few players that have one bass, or multiple models of the same bass, but the vast majority of us play the field. I have different basses for different styles of music and different venues. If you're in the same boat, or know someone who is, then this is the right shirt for you!
This clever shirt is very subtle and will draw a closer look for people walking by (a fair warning). The outline of a bass is seen in the middle of the body, as the core of the vascular system. A great way to share with others how much your instrument and your music play into your life.
2. Bass Clef
It doesn't get much simpler than this. The zone that we own. The better staff. The low flow. Show the world exactly where you live with this sharp shirt.
This is the one. It's my favorite and the favorite of our bass community. One shirt to quickly and easily let those around us know that they can take a deep breath and relax. We are here. We will hold the pocket, we will guide the groove and we are just fun people to be around.
Alright, that's it. My 10 favorite bass shirts and a little bit behind the why. There are plenty of shirt to choose from in our entire bass collection here but these are the ones that speak to me.
Let us know how we can help you Show The World What You Love!
