I had the opportunity to sit down with George Martin of T & G Martin Basses and chat about their shop. Tom Martin and family have been deep in the world of the double bass for decades, and they have been active doing restorations, building basses, and selling quality instruments. I had the idea to talk with George after Marc Ramirez recounted his tale of finding the Cavani bass on which he now plays at the Martin Shop.
Here’s a video covering the making of a Martin double bass, and look for this interview with George soon!
