our collection is the living heart - some have said the very bassline - of the museum,
and bringing our artefacts to as wide an audience as possible is the cornerstone of
our mission as an organisation.

the james soame collection of badboy kickdrums
our unique collection of hard-as-nails, banging kickdrums spanning the history and
geography of techno. We've digitised the sound of some of the best, and most
curious exhibits, and uploaded them here for you to enjoy.
the franklin journals
some of charles franklin's 19th century journals were kindly donated to the
museum last year. while we work on a museum exhibition based on our analysis of this
priceless historical resource, we will be publishing extracts from the journal on the
bass in battle
an exhibition describing pictures and recordings from the museum's permanent collection which relate to the use
of infrasound as a weapon.
