Now is the right time to become an American Federation of Musicians member. From ragtime to rap, from the early phonograph to today's digital recordings, the AFM has been there for its members. And now there are more benefits available to AFM members than ever before, including a multi-million dollar pension fund, excellent contract protection, instrument and travelers insurance, work referral programs and access to licensed booking agents to keep you working.
As an AFM member, you are part of a membership of more than 80,000 musicians. Experience has proven that collective activity on behalf of individuals with similar interests is the most effective way to achieve a goal. The AFM can negotiate agreements and administer contracts, procure valuable benefits and achieve legislative goals. A single musician has no such power.
The AFM has a proud history of managing change rather than being victimized by it. We find strength in adversity, and when the going gets tough, we get creative - all on your behalf.
Like the industry, the AFM is also changing and evolving, and its policies and programs will move in new directions dictated by its members. As a member, you will determine these directions through your interest and involvement. Your membership card will be your key to participation in governing your union, keeping it responsive to your needs and enabling it to serve you better. To become a member now, visit www.afm.org/join.

Taylor’s Mini Bass is a compact, lightweight, comfortable acoustic bass that provides natural sounding bass notes. Custom D’Addario nylon-core strings (with phosphor bronze wrap wire) plus a unique dual-prong bridge pin design yield great sound and a slinky feel. Condensed fret spacing make it a breeze to play, and an inspiring tool to have on hand for writing, recording demos, and jamming with friends. The bass comes equipped with an ES-B onboard pickup and preamp, featuring tone and volume controls and a built-in tuner, plus a hard bag featuring adjustable backpack straps for easy portability.
