Top 10: The Most Watched Bass Videos (July 2014)

We smashed all previous records of visits to No Treble in the month of July, thanks in large part to the #1 most watched video of the month. You probably saw it already, and if you’re like us, you’ll love watching it again.

There were nine other videos that got a ton of attention in July as well. Add them all up, and you have an epic list of bass-focused videos to watch.

As much as I loved all the videos, #6 might be my favorite. How about you?
