The International Institute of Bassists (IIB) is an online resource located at InstituteOfBass.com which is dedicated to the advancement of contemporary bass performance and the study of the bass tradition. Since its founding in 1997 by Cliff Engel, the IIB has established a long-time presence on the internet and grown into one of the largest and most popular bass-related web sites found online. Today, the IIB is recognized as one of the leading online publications for bass players and the promotion of all things bass.

As a viewer of the IIB, you can read exclusive interviews with bass virtuosos including Michael Manring, Stuart Hamm, Jeff Berlin, Gary Willis, Alain Caron, Matt Garrison, Keith Horne, and Brian Bromberg to name just a few. Viewers of the IIB also have access to free, downloadable lessons which are published by a staff of highly-respected instructors such as Michael Manring, Todd Johnson, Ray Riendeau, and Berklee College of Music professor Jim Stinnett. In addition to these lessons and interviews with the bass greats, viewers have access to interviews with the founders of manufacturing companies, bass shops, and bass events along with the latest bass-related news, reviews, and streaming media.

Subscribers of the IIB receive access to over 300 exclusive lessons. Subscribers also receive the IIB MP3 Bass Samplers Vol. 1 and 2 which are comprised of 22 tracks and 2 hours of music recorded by many of today's top bass artists including Michael Manring, Marcus Miller, Stuart Hamm, Gary Willis, Ray Riendeau, Adam Nitti, Norm Stockton, Todd Johnson, Jeff Schmidt, Yves Carbonne, Tom Kennedy, Gerald Veasley, and many more.

The IIB keeps both electric and acoustic upright bassists of all levels of playing experience, from novice to professionals alike, returning every day for the latest updates and information in the bass community. The IIB also delivers a newsletter by e-mail to over 50,000 bass enthusiasts worldwide each month.
