Yes, the question is definitely off-topic. How much does a double bass and an appropriate travel container weigh? I'm running a pen-and-paper gaming campaign, and I've got a slap-bass/bluegrass nut in the group wanting his bard to tote a double bass around. The trouble is, this guy hasn't been within 20 feet of a double bass in real life, and to be honest, neither have I (although as a VERY casual music listener, I do enjoy the tones it can produce, whether plucked, "slapped," or drawn). I'm not in a habit of flat-out saying "no" to my players (especially with all the other tomfoolery inherent in gaming), but I think a start to pulling him back into reality (or plausible suspension of disbelief) would be knowing how heavy his door-defying instrument of choice actually is. I scouted a few sites, but I didn't find an actual weight for the instrument. With apologies as an orchestral music nitwit, can anyone help me out here?
