More about Pat


"To me, when an instrument is 'road tested' it means it’s been played, loved and traveled with.  I build my instruments to feel like they’ve already been used and are warm and inviting to the player." 

Pat Wilkins, 2018

Wilkins Basses endorsed by 

Peter Cetera

"In my 38 years as an electric bassist I have owned just about every bass you can think of... Nothing ever fully satisfied my eclectic tastes or truly diverse gig demands until I discovered my Wilkins basses. Not only are the electronics flexible enough to rise to any occasion, but the feel of the instrument is unsurpassed. No matter what you're looking for in an instrument, Wilkins can keep you happy for a long, long time. I'm hooked!"
