Well,I learned a VALUABLE lesson at a gig one sat nite...
We were doing Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd to end a set and during the last lead break,while jumping and dancing around,my strap decides to COME OFF MY BASS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Luckily,I grabbed her before anything happened and sat on the drum riser to finish the tune....
Now,before everyone says to go buy strap locks....I HAVE strap locks !!!
...and here's what transpired
The nut that holds the strap lock to the strap came loose and the strap lock itself turned right around,causing the button to slip right out !!!!
On break,I just re aligned the lock,tightened it down with pliers from the tool kit and voila...good to go.
So....just an FYI on bass maintenance Bass Buddies
DON'T FORGET YOUR STRAP LOCKS....It could happen to you !!!!
