    I see NBD when people show their new gear - but what does the abbreviation stand for?

    Pleased help a clueless. :)

    New Bass Day. There's also NAD/New Amp Day, and so on.

    I just had to do some searching to find the answer to this question myself. It was confusing because everywhere on the internet other than TalkBass, NBD stands for "no big deal" -- which clearly isn't what people here mean when enthusiastically showing off their latest acquisitions.

    Oh nothing really, just kinda odd that anyone that anyone that has been on here for more than six months doesn't know what NBD means.


    Didn't mean anything by it.

    I'm happy for you - if such a small thing is a "Wow" experience then your life must be an endless series of wonders.

    Thought it was "No big deal" for a while. Very confusing. Finally looked it up.
