A few months ago, I got a big scare. My upright was in its soft case (the only one I have) and it was leaning upright against a corner in my house. I was sitting at my computer (probably on Talkbas) when I heard a terrible crashing noise. I sat petrified for about thirty seconds before I got up to see what happenned (although I knew). My Cat tried to climb the bass and when she got to the top the thing went off balance and fell over. Thankfully, there was no damage, but it was a big scare. Anyone have similar experiences? Will C.
