Lately, No Treble has been experiencing a significant increase in feedback coming in by way of email, letters, tweets and Facebook posts and messages. We love hearing from you! The positive feedback (along with the occasional advice on how to do even better) are evidence that No Treble is attracting an energetic, worldwide community of bassists.
From No Treble’s perspective, we are all in this together. You, the reader (and our Facebook and Twitter friends) who read, share and discuss the articles and features here, the No Treble crew and No Treble’s sponsors form the all-bass community we strive to nurture. Together, we contribute to the ongoing dialogue for and about bassists that is at the core of No Treble’s mission.
Part of what makes continuing development of No Treble possible is the support of our sponsors. By adding their voices to No Treble’s ongoing exchange of ideas and information, No Treble’s sponsors lend invaluable support to No Treble’s ability to keep reporting new bass-focused stories, videos, lessons, reviews and so much more. We encourage you to recognize their contribution which helps make our all-bass venture go. By making relevant, bass-focused information available to you, they strive to be of service in the community. If they are on target, let them know. If they miss the mark, they want to know that too.
In the past year, No Treble has enjoyed support from these fine sponsors. Check them out when you have a moment.
