Saw it on eBay, forgot to bid, and now the seller doesn't have it anymore!
Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
dont try to find one cause they suck, i have one at Velvet and i dont trust it even for put broken basses on it
Yikes! Good to know... I suppose I'll need to look at alternatives. Something other than Ingles or Hamilton...
IMHO, there is no such thing as a reliable double bass stand. The only safe method of storage I know of is to lean the bass into a corner. I screw a 4"x4" piece of 3/4 plywood with a 1 1/2" hole for the endpin into the floor as well. For the truly obsessive or those with active toddlers or cats, a bungee cord across the shoulders provides more security. If you have multiple basses, a rack like those seen in most bass shops might be practical.
That really makes a lot of sense. I've actually have a corner that will work well for this if the bass can be very upright and stable... now if I can talk my wife into the permanent installation... any advice there?
Tell her if the bass falls over, it makes a REALLY expensive noise. I'd think four little screw holes in the floor pale in comparison. Alternatively, if you have carpet, a simple spike endpin will suffice.
+1 That thing sucks.... -fallls apart, falls over,etc, etc...
Get a KCStrings stand
That KC Strings stand looks nice. Love the fact that it doubles as a stool.
But the fly in the ointment is that the endpin cannot be out very far. Seems like a pain in the butt to always have to adjust the endpin for your height (especially if you're taller) and then retract it to put it back on the stand. Maybe I'm just lazy...
Go with the putting-it-in-the-corner, I'd say. It's cheaper, and assuming that your corner of which you speak has carpeted floors, it should be fine.
