I was thinking about this the other day. I own a Lakland Skyline and a Peavey Cirrus. These basses has probably travelled more than i have done in my life. My skyline, correct me if I´m wrong, has been send to Korea to be assembled and then back to USA to be checked. And then it has travelled over the Atlantic to my home in Sweden. That´s not so good from the Earths point of view. Then there are many instruments that are build from exotic woods. Which probably has been taken from a 3rd world country to the manufactor and then to a dealer. I don´t want to be the boring guy. I like my basses, they are in many way my tools and toys. They help me to get money and joy. But I wonder what we as bassplayers and humans can do to make a difference for our world and people around the globe. For example the man in Africa who chopped down that nice piece of bubinga. Here at Talkbass, many musicians are gathered a perhaps we know or can find a way of making a small differnce that has a great impact of our future. Share your thoughts!!!
