For the travelling bassist

I've briefly mentioned about the Bass Buggie by KC Strings from my previous post here.

What the Bass Buggie does for me is that it saves me energy required from having to lug the bass around from one end of a venue to the other, really useful if I am going to have a long day of playing ahead.

This a video done by K.C. String Violin Shop to how to attach it on properly onto the double bass, and how to do certain maneuvers with it.

As you can see it's extremely easy to strap on/off.

Another alternative I've seen in Singapore would be the Eastman Presto Soft Case with wheels, model CB60.

Pictures taken from Linda West:

I haven't had the chance to use this case before.

But judging from the pictures it seems like the small wheels wouldn't be able to hold its ground well on thick-carpeted areas or rough terrains.

And there also seems to be an inherent risk of causing rapid wear and tear to the bottom part of the gig bag because of the small wheels.

However, the gig bag does seem to be of decent quality with thick foam padding.

I couldn't really find a review for the Eastman CB60 except for the sale links.

So if anyone has got the chance to use it please let us know in the comments section below.

This a review of the Bass Buggie done by Simply for Strings:

The Bass Buggie is available in Singapore through BassLoft.
