  1. Can anyone give me some instructions on this? Where exactly should I tie it to on the bass?

    Tie it to the tailpiece on the E-string side. Tie it through the hole that the E-string goes into and the tailgut.

    And, tie the bottom string on the quiver loosely around the tailgut.

    Chuck Sher publishes my book, WALKING BASSICS:The Fundamentals of Jazz Bass Playing.
    Buy it flowers and candy? Maybe I misunderstood the question....

    How to mount a bow quiver? Wear 501 button fly jeans, bow quivers can hear a zipper a mile away. :D

    I recently put a quiver on a new bass and found that the obvious approach of tying it through the E string hole on the tail piece didn't work well. The quiver kept moving away from the bass. I looked at how the guys at David Gage's shop in NY mounted a quiver on my Pollman bass and it was quite different. They took one end of the leather straps through the back side of the G string hole, brought it around the front and underneath, then took the other end over the front of the tail piece and tied the two together underneath. The straps form a flattened out X on top of the tailpiece.
    On the bottom of the quiver, they wrap the straps a number of times around the lowest part of the tailpiece, not the tail gut, then tie it underneath, making sure that the lower part of the quiver is slightly in front of the tailpiece, creating a nice angle for the bow.
     
  9. Interesting. Could you post a photo, please?
