Open Call for Bass Photos and Videos!
You can be featured on one of the most familiar and longest-running upright bass sites on the internet!
Now that we've transitioned to our brand new website (July 2020) we'd like to start sprucing the place up a bit. One of the places I've noticed we could use a boost is visual content. For instance, we have all of these wonderful FAQ/Knowledge Base articles, but some of them are a little "dry" because there aren't any cool photos to accompany the wall of (very informative) text. We thought it might be in-line with our "community approach" to invite our customers and other bassist friends to provide some real-world, personalized content to our pages.
So here's the "open call" to our many friends and customers - if you have a photo or two you'd like to share, or even a video review or unboxing of products you bought at Gollihur Music, we'd love to consider featuring them on the site!
Here's a list of some of the photos we can definitely use:
- Playing solo repertoire with a bow
- Performing live with a mic and pickup
- An energetic performance shot - spinning, climbing on, or being a little "wild" with your bass
Other Bass Playing:
- You playing an electric upright bass
- Playing a left-handed bass (full acoustic upright)
- Playing a bass with a bow
General Instrument Shots:
- A really funky/unusual old bass
- A really nice or well-played old Kay Bass, particularly a less common model
- A bass with REALLY old, decrepit, worn-out strings
- Bass with gut strings
Maintenance and Transport:
- You using a bass wheel or buggie
- In the middle of changing your strings on your upright bass
- You carrying your bass in a bag/case
Gollihur Music Product Shots:
- Basically, you using any product you've bought from us. The item should be pretty easily seen/identified if possible.
If you have hosted a video on YouTube that covers/reviews/shows you using or unboxing a product we carry, especially if you got it from us, we would be honored to embed it on the product page for our customers' benefit.
If you'd like to give us permission to do so, please contact us with the direct link to the video and a quick note giving us permission to use it.
