The Gaines Bass Wheel was designed to allow double bass players to safely and easily transport their instruments. The eight-inch diameter pneumatic tire (with inner-tube) absorbs damaging mechanical shock and prevents it from reaching the bass. The tire is mounted in a steel yoke, with a shaft that is inserted into the endpin holder. The wheel orientation is adjustable and the shafts are interchangeable. The wheel inner-tube has a standard fitting for a hand-operated tire pump. Heavy-duty shielded ball bearings and top-quality fasteners and set screws ensure that the Gaines Bass Wheel is a safe choice for traveling professional bassists.
The Gaines Bass Wheel comes with one shaft, available in several standard sizes. PLEASE MAKE YOUR SELECTION IN THE CUSTOMIZATION TAB ABOVE BEFORE ADDING THE ITEM TO YOUR CART.
