Washtub Bass Page

The Washtub Bass Page is a focal point and clearinghouse for information on all aspects of the washtub bass – who plays one, where to hear one, how to make one, and so on. The page offers links, building tips, sound clips, picture galleries amd many more. “We’re not narrow-minded (washtub bass people can’t afford to be), so our scope includes the tea-chest bass, the gas-tank bass and the like, and even the occasional cigarbox guitar or fiddle.“
