    The new issue of Double Bassist contains pt 2 of the EUB article, bassically a market overview. Pt 2 deals mostly with special instruments such as strap-on, short-scale, non-bowable etc EUBs.

    Hi Mikael.
    To be honest, I bought the previous edition to get the first part, and I was deceived.
    I was expecting some analysis/reviews on instruments, but it's basically a table with a list of features.
    I'm not saying it's not useful, but not for me.

    Regards,
    François

    I think the intentions of the editors was just to give an overview of what´s available EUB-wise. DB is a magazine aimed mostly at acoustic bass players, mostly in classical music and to some extent in jazz. But I can admit that for us EUB enthusiasts, it doesn´t add that much...
