Lately I've been concerned about the general well-being of my gear when I'm on a gig. I've seen holes kicked into basses, drinks spilled on amps, bows sat on and a whole lot of other horrors. And these have all been in nice places, done by nice (and sober) people. I've never had something close happen to me, but I'm growing paranoid. So, my original thought was to try out a David Gage or Kolstein trunk, but, for my purposes would that be overkill? I looking for a nice hardshell case that I can use to store my bass before and after each gig. I will continue to put my bass in it's cover after each set, but I'd like something sturdier for when I'm storing my bass offstage. Anyone have any expieriences?
