A little corner of Tumblr for us double bass players.

Hey lovely followers! So there are quite a few of you now, but we almost never talk! I thought I might try out something new: these “talk to me” things, where we bass players can all gather and be like a huge network and talk about stuff! Feel free to suggest new topics as well! Hopefully this won’t turn out to be an embarrassing failure… I might go and hide in my bass case.

Anyhoo, I’m going to start off telling you guys a little bit about my own bass, I JUST bought it about two months ago, and it’s the first bass I’ve actually ever owned and not just hired. I call him PC, short for Popcorn. I know, just a little whim of mine, I like to name everything. :P He’s a lovely 3/4 size bass, solid front and ply back, and a pretty good sound too! He’s sitting in my room right now in his little stand.

So yeah, that’s my bass! Any good stories about yours? Bass buying stories, adventures your bass has been on? I’ve known a few basses better traveled than I am. :/ And my old bass teacher owns a 250 year old bass, I’ve had a go on it and it’s got the loveliest, mellowest, warmest sound!

But yes, anyway, yes, bottom line, talk to me guys! I’m sure we’d all love to get to know each other a little better, and I’d certainly love to talk to you more!
