Hi, I have an upcoming gig with a number of songs which require a drop D. I have a 4 string Wal MkI and am considering fitting a Hipshot Bass Xtender.

Can anyone advise which version will fit a Wal?

Thanks

John

The Hipshot sites shows all their models and what basses they fit, if you don't see your bass there, email their support people, they are truely great :)

+1 to this, I have found them to be very helpful.

Contact Paul at Wal. They have an option to fit D tuner when you buy a new bass from them, but I'm sure he'll tell you which make and model to get.
All the best!

Thanks I have dropped a mail to Paul. The bass has just recently come back from him after a refurbish. I could kick myself for not considering this option at the time.
