what is a violin bass (or bass violin) {not a cello}?

me and my friend were looking at a guitar/instrument/ mag, and we seen something called a violin bass? it wasnt a cello (at least i dont think...) and we were wondering how ya play it or what it is....thnx

Magazines and catalogs often use incorrect or misleading information. BUT - there is a conversation where the term *violin bass* is correct. If you take a GOOD look at the string bass section on many (not all) orchestras, you will see string basses that look like HUGE violins (hence the name) and others that have sloping shoulders, and not the delicate continuation of the curves that violin-shaped basses have. These are called *viol basses*, and are the descendants of the ancient viol family - NOT the violin family. If you see one of each of these, side by side, you wll see that one looks, well, graceful, and the other looks chunky, for wnat of better terms.

Beyond that, you will see some bass players using a bow that looks like, and is held, like a cello bow. And OTHER bass players will be suing something the is played UNDERHAND. These underhand bass bows are called German-style (the usual ones are called French style) and give you more power with less fatigue - but some people say, less flexibility. There are two camps, as it were. wchih bow fo which bass?? Matter of choice, although there are generalizations - more violin-bass players use French boes, more vil-bass players use German. No rules.

So - the magazine probably just threw that term out there - not knowing it has bigger implications among TRUE bass players.

Hey - the TD Trolls are back! Not than anybody ever misses you guys - but when we see the same old pattern of TDs appear, we figure you either woke up or ran out of beer.
