Storing multibasses...

    I was wonderíng how you guys with numerous instruments (incl. Brad, JT and many others) store them?

    I mean, you would probably not have them all in their own sofa, as in those infamous "family pictures"! More likely, you've got some special room for storing them, or a rack or...what?

    Need some tips, before I go over the edge of multi-bass-ownership!

    I'm not sure this is the right forum - feel free to move it!
  2. I use racks that holds them parallel to each other. The ones I have hold 6 and collapse down to become like a suitcase.

    Right now I'm using two of the warwick racks [that hold 5], two double stands, three singles, two DB stands and any convenient wall :p

    I have a couple of stands, but mostly just leave them in their cases and gigbags.

    I have (4)Anvil road case trunks that hold 4 basses in each one.Each trunk has 4 slots that you slide the hard shell cases into.

    When they're all together they go in standard hardshell cases standing up in a large closet. When they go to gigs out comes the flight case.

    I practice on cheap 4 & 5 stringers to keep my babies free from damage and fresh for performance. :bassist:

  16. Personnaly, I own only one bass for the moment, but when I will have my second one, I'll keep them next to my bed in their cases....

    I've got two, a guitar, two bass amps, and a guitar amp in my room at the moment (which also contains two desks, a bed, a bookcase, and there's very little room for movement now). I have two wall hooks for the basses and a stand for the guitar, and two more stands down stairs for other storage. Right now, one of the wall hooks started coming out, but it's one of those Hercules ones with the little things that go out in front of the neck-headstock joint so my bass didn't fall out before I noticed. Now, I take whichever instrument I played last and lean it against a bed post if I'm awake and in my chair, or against my computer desk if I'm sleeping in my bed. Gotta get that other hanger fixed...

    Thank you, all!

    I think I'll figure out some combo of the stand and the closet.
    Can't have more than three standing around my bed - it gets too dusty...
  20. Here is the Warwick rack so far works well.
