    You're talking fretless, right? I always used rounds on my fretless.
    I'm asking about fretted Roscoes. I know Chromes have been mentioned.

    I've got a set of D'Addario tapewound on the 7, but I rarely play it these days.
    I liked them, if that helps...
    I've also had Deep Talkin' Flats on a fretted and thought they were fine, although I no longer have that instrument.
    I don't see why I wouldn't like Cobalt Flats on the fretted 5, just it came with DR Pure Blues and I haven't felt the need to change them yet...

    Yeah, me too. They don't carry them locally so I'll have to look the next couple weekends when I'm in Minneapolis.

    I've been using these for a while and they work real nice. I use em with my LG's and SKB's.

    That’s going to be gorgeous man. Mine is right with yours as he’s finishing the clear this week. Getting really excited.

    I've wondered about the "A-frame" kind of stand. They look nice and portable for sure.

    I have 2 of them that I put in my little Mono "The Tick" bag and clip it to my gig bag... Done and done.

    This is the one I use. I like it that the weight of the bass closes the yoke.
    Been using them 5 or 6 years without an issue.

    Just order from Sweetwater. They are likely your best price and they ship for free.

    Normally I would but I’m leaving Friday and it might not get here in time. I’m gonna visit some music places anyway so I can just pick one up. Need it for Sunday to “display” my 2 basses at the GTG. I don’t mind throwing some cash the way of the “mom and pop” shop if I can.

    That's a lot of Roscoe Gig bags!
    How in the world do you know which bass is in which bag? Labels? I'd be afraid that I'd get in a hurry and take the wrong bass to the gig.
    I'm in the "protect my basses from Grand kids" mode". I have just 4 gig bags (one's a dub bag) and 4 hard cases. When I take my basses out of the house I put them in the gig bags. The hard cases never leave the house.

    I always leave mine in the bags. Dust protection if nothing else. Our house is dusty as we have hot water heat so no circulation through a filter. Kinda sucks but the heat in the winter is way better than forced air. I only need 2 bags so....

    Nice. I was playing my G&L JB-2 Tribute last night for a while. It was fun/fine...until Uptown Funk came up in the playlist. Really need the B string for that tune. That's why I stick to my 5 for gigs.
