    I've heard a lot of guys talk about getting their amps off the floor so the endpin doesn't pickup vibrations from the floor. This is great as long as there aren't subs or other instruments vibrating the floor as well.

    Wouldn't it make more sense to try to acoustically isolate the endpin from the floor?

    Has anyone tried this? My guess is something similar to the Auralex Gramma but way smaller. Or maybe some certain type of very dense rubber that I could plant the endpin into.

    Thanks,
    C

    i think you are right (although i have never had that problem) because the last thing I want to do is de-couple my bass rig from the floor.

    I got the bass ball from golihur and if you haven't seen it, it's just a rubber ball that screws to your endpin. It works great for me and I've played gigs with other bands where I had to plug into a GK head with 4-12"s and didn't have any problems. I'd try that. It's a pretty cheap alternative.
