    Hi Talk Bass- I set up a profile months ago but have not been active. My daughter is a 13 yr old drummer and for 2 years had been playing bass off and on. She is a School of Rock student and her band's bassist took the summer off so she's been practicing/playing bass steadily since May. I've barely been able to find any information on Strinbergs. We bought her a Strinberg CAB-16 2 years ago due to it's smaller size and it's perfect for her. As I begin navigating this new journey, I'm happy to have found a site that offers such a broad range of knowledge and support! I don't know that I will post much but thanks in advance for the expertise and product reviews you are willing to share! I have placed 2 of her last concert videos in the Media folder under "other music". Please remember she's 13 and just starting. Everyone had to start somewhere. Thanks again!

    welcome. I thought you spelled Steinberg incorrectly but you did it twice. I googled Strinberg and it's a real brand.

    Good for her. Tell her to check out Tal Walkenfeld. Regular size girl who plays regular scale basses and 5 strings, too.

    Are we allowed to post YouTube video links to this forum? I've started them for her.

    I might suggest Espranza Spalding and Mohini Dey as additional potential inspirations. Both scary good! :thumbsup:

    And yes, youtube links seem to be ok here:

    First off, welcome to Talkbass. Great community with a lot of knowledgeable people. I can't say I'm familiar with Strinberg, but it looks like a brand that primarily sells in Brazil but made in China with a few dealers here, in NY and in Florida. It's inexpensive from what I understand, roughly $300 new but of good quality according to people who own/have owned one. there are some on this site that do know much more about this brand and have one. I have to say I'm curious about it now. :) Perhaps change the title of this post to include a query about the Strinberg brand and they'll be able to see it. I did find this previous post. Strinberg owners? Am I the only one?

    Again, welcome to TB and wishing your daughter all the best in the world of bass. I think it's wonderful when parents are involved .

    Thanks very much! That is about all,I know about Strinberg as well. We bought it brand new from a dealer in Florida. I was shooting for quality and size for a beginner and think we really lucked out. Its only needed 1 small repair since she has had it. Thanks for posting and for the welcome.

    Welcome to TB! Ive been on here for a good while, and see things on here all the time that are new to me, and ive been playing for almost 40 years! These guys are a pond of knowledge, and there are so many, its hard to bring something up that nobody knows something about. You have bass forums, amp forums, effects forums, classifieds.... it goes on and on. Best tool for a bass player ANYWHERE.
