THE BASS

Music needs bass!

There's no music without bass. We know how great the bass is here at the Berlin Bass Academy

Whether it's rock, funk, soul, hip-hop, jazz, techno, dubstep, heavy metal, folk or classical music: Every genre needs bass. It makes the music come alive. It lays the foundation for the music, it is the link between rhythm and harmony, creates the groove and makes you want to dance.
