There are many "clubs" on talkbass.com, discussion threads dedicated to the work of a specific bass maker. There isn't a Barker Bass club though, probably because we can do everything a club thread does and more over here in this sponsored forum. Nevertheless, there are still advantages to having a Barker Bass club. For example, when club members get a number and display it in their talkbass signature, then every time we post a comment anywhere in talkbass, we are also something positive about Barker Basses as well. Also, being in a club communicates to everyone else that you have an enthusiasm for that brand, an enthusiasm which invites them to check out it out. Additionally, it's one thing to lurk in a forum sponsored by a luthier, but it's another thing entirely to belong to a grass roots movement started by and driven by people who believe in it. Consequently, I've decided to start a Barker Bass club on talkbass. The other club threads take place in the main bass forum which doesn't make sense for the Barker Bass club, seeing as we have our Barker related conversations over here. So the purpose of the Barker Bass Club is basically to maintain a current roster of the Barker Bass owners here on talk bass; kind of a "who owns what" roll call. In fact, this club thread should probably be made "sticky" so that everyone can easily find the list of Barker Bass owners on talkbass. Like most of the other bass clubs on talkbass, to get a club number, simply post a photo of your bass in this club thread. Please post your photos and join, then please display your Barker Bass Club membership number in your talkbass signature for the world to see. And when you join, please don't forget to subscribe so you can check out the basses of your fellow Barker owners!
