If you live outside of the US, email me to make arrangements.

I have collected a list of Music Stores endorsed by TBL.

Some of us in Colorado and surrounding states get together and call it CoBol!

The Colorado Bottom Liners

CoBoL is presently a subgroup of subscribers to The Bottom Line, a worldwide bassists' email news digest. CoBoL members are primarily but not exclusively Colorado-area players who get together about once every 3 months for two to three hours to discuss whatever comes to mind. (It's usually bass related.) If you'd like more info or to be added to the local group, email and be sure to include "CoBoL" somewhere in the subject line.
