Xbass.org, the online double bass magazine created by members of the fabulous Bass Gang (hear excerpts from this group on Contrabass Conversations episode 23) just did a fantastic new redesign of their site. This site is a tremendous resource for bass players everywhere. In many respects, it has a lot of similarities to doublebassblog.org, only with more of a European bent. They feature videos, forums, articles, instruments for sale, and many other excellent features well worth checking out.
Doublebassblog.org and Xbass.org are actually planning a collaborative project, working to create the first-ever online international double bass convention. We’re talking about streaming video from Europe and the United States and other cool possibilities. Stay tuned to the blog for more information!
The following video (created shortly before their recent site redesign) highlights some of the great things going on at Xbass.org. Check it out–I’ll be letting you all know about new projects as they develop:
