Pretty Good Not Perfect
motty, 01.02.2018
I live on a hill in a large city and do not drive, so hitherto taking my DB out has been fraught with issues. The Double Bass Buggie - as recommended by my DB teacher - makes it easy to manoeuvre my instrument along typical city pavements, on and off buses and such, and to gigs / jam sessions / lessons / rehearsals etc.

It's easy to take on and off once you know how, but mine came with absolutely no documentation whatsoever and I had to first look up the manufacturer's website for instructions. Turns out that it's not quite as easy to steer the buggie-enabled instrument as I'd hoped, and I've found it this does sometimes (not always) veer constantly to one side when in use. That said, it's a great deal easier to transport the instrument than it was before I got the buggie, and it's also possible - not having had it that long - that I am not consistently attaching the thing correctly. The documentation makes no mention of this issue; presumably, DB players are expected to work out for themselves how to ensure stable steering.

Life is much better than before, no doubt; there is also room for improvement in the documentation and consistent steering stability of the product. Hence four, not five stars.

Preferable to a single wheel
Smooooth, 03.03.2018
For those of us in possession of basses without a removable endpin, this 'buggy' is a lifesaver. Well, perhaps not anything quite so superlative, but if one's livelihood depends on being able to transport a double bass then I suppose it's not such an outlandish claim. When properly fitted the Bass Buggy can be trusted to safely and securely enable transit of one's instrument, attaching to the endpin with a large plastic hoop and firmly but not too tightly around the neck heel with bungee straps. When this is done correctly the bass should be able to 'stand' resting at a 30-ish degree angle on both the endpin and the wheels, making careful trips on trains and buses much easier than with an endpin-wheel fitted bass. All that prevents this product receiving five stars is the fact that the necessary protective 'cushion' is sold seperately!
