    Ive noticed alot that some bassists like FAmily Man Barrett and Jaco wear really awesome looking beanies. I was wondering if anyone else dug these as much as me. Also has anyone been able to find anything like these in stores?

    This is a beanie, for those of you who don't know:
    I guess Jaco could pull it off...

  4. Actually, I find that wearing these really make me play better. Although it's an extra battery to worry about, the fan on top is a nice thing to have during those hot summer gigs. And as an extra crowd-pleaser, I found that if I jump, I float a little bit on the way back down.

    It's not a beanie.

    The hat you're looking for is a tam.

    Rastas use them to hold their dreads.
