I use a Fusion bass gig bag. I trust It with my Fodera.
I'll try to remember to take a pic of the scars on my jazz bass, maybe it will make you feel better!
There's a pretty good smash in the clear closer from when the sucker just dropped out the bottom of my gig bag onto the sidewalk, straight down. Plus a million other dings, scratches, scuffs, and one errant soldering iron burn.
So, you mean, you play that thing?
Quite a bit, yes
It's strange how the first scar is heart breaking, but then when you get a lot of 'em it's got mojo, it's got character and it's "road worn".
If I had a bass that I spent a lot of money on and it was pretty and shiny and I wanted to keep it that way I sure as hell wouldn’t use a gig bag, hard case always...
I don't think Jaco, or Jamerson, or Duck cared much about how their basses looked, they just played. Just play man.
Last year or the year before? I had a similar situation but, mine turned out worse I had a double Fender Bag with my Fender P and another bass inside I had just finished a gig and was unloading the car and went to throw it on my back and the strap hook let go
the basses were diving for the black top and my first thought was to put my foot out to break the fall, I was wearing Converse Allstars It did break the fall, but the strap button landed on my big toe and a few others the big toe was busted open and broke. I knew it was bad when it landed, but way worse when I got the sock off
Correct. It would burn up on reentry.
I keep a used (and cleaned) set in my gig bag. The last time I broke a string on a gig was 1971, but hey...
I know no photo never happened
I must be lucky. I schlepped a medium heavy jazz bass from outside Toronto to downtown Toronto for over a year in a cheap “Ritter” gig bag without incident.
I’m sorry your bass got dinged. That sucks. You may want to share the manufacture of that mighty fine gig bag that failed to prevent others from a similar fate,
Yikes! Looks like no fun at all!
nope two basses landing on your toe makes it explode who knew? I have a large outdoor Italian American Festival event the following week that I played but not much jumping around it gets a great crowd every year
shot this one from the stage
Reunion Blues bags are well padded and strong. Mine is very well made. I recommend them.
Why do you put your hat in a gig bag?
What a bummer. Softy cases are handy but not truly protective when they absolutely, positively ( ) need to be, IMO. I've always went for the hard case and on a couple of occasions was dang glad I did.
Because he keeps his cat in that hat.
