No more Bass Brace?

    blaah.. I feel like my last 4 threads have been me complaining about something...

    ok maybe not...

    Anyway... I've starting to have some fun cervical/thoracic spine problems, including some nice radiculopathy down my left arm...

    I'm already going to see my doc about it, but I know I need to make some musical ergonomic changes. One of my drummers is letting me borrow an extra throne, so I can play seated, and still reach my pedal board.

    The Bass Brace idea seemed like a great idea the 9 months or so ago I looked at them. Didn't have any problems then, so I never got one. I've been looking lately, and www.bassbrace.com is not found.

    Anyone know if they are out of business? Any decent and affordable alternatives?
     
  2. Nor sure what a bass brace is, but I saw on here somewhere a guy that modded a cymbal stand or something, so that it almost held his bass and he could play standing up.

    There's a few of those stands available.. that would be just too odd for me.. I move too much when I play, even while seated.

    I've looked at the slider guitar straps, as well as teh neotecks.. al seem fairly affordable and simple...

    blaaah *L* this sucks...
