Boink!

Gigbag_faillure-01Boink! That was the sound I heard yesterday when the strap on my bag snapped loose and my bass hit the ground 😦

Luckily the bass was not damaged but I was not amused… And I almost hit a woman sitting on a bench with the bass…

I already knew the Stagg bags are of pretty poor quality (see also this posting) but I had not seen this one coming… All the stitching that hold the strap to the bag came loose! So tonight I will be stitching it back on and I will most probably reinforce all other handle and strap attachments too…

Also some good news: yesterday I finally had the opportunity to show the bass to my teacher and he thought is was pretty good! Much better than the old black, unmodified Stagg that he tried earlier. Especially the improved neck angle and better bridge. He played pizz and arco on it and I was very pleased with the sound too (had not heard someone else play my Stagg) 🙂
