I don't know if this has ever been discussed but the worst sound a bassist could ever hear is the sound of his/her bass hitting the ground. My worst one, I was jamming in my basement when all of a sudden my cheap assed strap let go of my bass and my bass hit the cement ground. OUCH! It didn't seem to damage the bass, but man... I was amplified too. So it was that sickening thud followed by the sound of all the strings ringing out open DUUUUNNNNNNN. Not cool at all. Anyone else have similar stories?
