Now in its second edition the acclaimed volume is more than a book about the contrabass, but an introduction to string playing at a time in the history of Western music when timbre has finally ascended to its rightful role among musical parameters. It articulates the real musical image and potential of the contrabass, and introduces new concepts, aesthetics, and techniques.

Bertram Turetzky, the foremost contrabassist in America today, is a member of the Music Department at the University of California, San Diego.Review:
"A first rate book for aspiring composers. The drawings are clear, as are the explanations of ideas and sounds; the variety of material is tremendous and it is very easy to use, with the authoritative clarity which abounds in every chapter. It is both scholarly and inspiring, definitive and comprehensive; a milestone in the search for new timbres which is the cornerstone of Turetzky's philosophy, at the same time futuristic and deeply traditional. The search for timbre is also the search for beauty." -- Contact
"[A] most instructive book . . . an important handbook for composers and players alike." -- The Musical Times
