Update Log
This pages are online since 2007. In the very beginning I didn't expect any reaction from outside. Meanwhile I learned, that I'm not the only guy in the world who's interested in violin basses. Even if the motion of these pages has slowered regarding the early days, I decided to log the updates beginning from jan 2010 onwards to keep you (and myself) better informed!
