Whether you are a professional or amateur, a luthier or a composer, collector or gearhead, or perhaps simply a listener who enjoys very low frequencies, there is a place in the ISB for you to share your double bass love! Joel Quarrington

Principal Bassist, London Symphony Orchestra

As a teenager, I was lucky enough to learn that bassists have a unique and supportive bond with each other that is not shared by players of any other instrument. The ISB is the lead organization we have that keeps this family connected throughout the world. John Clayton

It seems as if I’ve been a member of the ISB since the first blues line was played! It was a great choice of notes, as good a choice as joining this Society. I’ve met some fantastic people along the way, played on some fantastic instruments, new and old, and heard some fantastic performances. When you join, you’ll be sharing these things with me. Ron Carter

Once you’ve been bitten by the bass bug, the ISB has got to be one of the primary sources for nurturing your love and enthusiasm for what the bass represents in your life. Gary Karr

ISB Founder
