Recent News and Updates
NS Design CR4 SPECIAL PRICING!

The NS Design CR4 Bass
is a very nice electric upright bass that is crafted in Europe. They don't come cheap - but here's a stellar opportunity to get one at a big discount. If you have been holding out - or considering buying the NXT (the budget version of this bass) - you may want to jump on this deal while it lasts.

New Version of our Popular Gig Bag - IN STOCK
Our previous model gig bag was a useful carry case for small amps, cables, preamps, and other miscellanea - our newest version is slightly larger, includes some handy new features, and has a new, lower-profile "BASS" logo for a classier appeal.

SB200H Lightweight Bass Amplifier Head
We love the combo, now you can get the same great features in a standalone head. Tiny, lightweight, and quite affordable - this amp can do double duty; turn down the Low Expander and it's a great upright bass amp. But it sounds great for electric bass, too...

A partially completed page entitled "The Bass Education Project" provided access to and hosted images of double bass fingerboard positions. It is no longer available on the web (though you might be able to use this archived copy at the Wayback Machine), and since this is a much-requested item, I will host them as a courtesy to my fellow players.

As you click on any of the listed positions, a separate window will open with the image inside, ready to print or review. You may also simply download the .gif images by right-clicking on each and choosing "save as" or whatever command your browser provides.



I hope that the author of that page will contact me if he reposts his project; I will be glad to link to the new net location. Meanwhile, I will host this resource.

Here is one of the charts for your reference:







The Fine Print: The information contained herein is based on what's in my brain and/or my opinions as of today and is subject to change. Like any topic, a great deal more information could be added—but the intent of these writings is to present easy to understand, quick FAQs, to address common questions and improve the reader's general knowledge. What's written here is by no means the authoritative absolute answer, I am not the world's greatest authority on bass (not even close), or on anything else for that matter. I hope the information and opinions here are helpful to you, that's the point!

I welcome email with dissenting and additional viewpoints that help improve my personal awareness and the content pages. If you have a question that you think belongs here, please let me know.
