Bass Buggie for Double Bass
Better Than a Bass Wheel? Yes!
There is a safer, faster & easier way to transport your double bass.
Thousands of bass buggies sold worldwide!
Made in the United States by KC Strings, the Bass Buggie is specifically designed to be both convenient and to protect your bass from damage during transport. It’s easy and fast to attach the Buggie to the double bass: the adjustable double belt system attaches to the neck of the double bass with a sturdy elastic strap, while the lower end of the Bass Buggie attaches to the endpin, which does not have to be removed.
High-quality, non-marking ball bearing wheels make it simple to push the bass both indoors and outside. The bass can stand on its own, although we at bassico do not recommend leaving the bass unattended in this position.

Using the Buggie
The Buggie is very simple to use – in fact, we believe that is one of the reasons why it has been so successful! We recommend you take a few moments and watch the video at left to become familiar with how to attach the buggie to your bass and adjust it for a perfect fit.

Two Simple Adjustments:
The Buggie is designed to adjust to fit any size of double-bass. There are two adjustments that you will want to be familiar with as you set up and begin using your Buggie. Although, you may find that your buggie is already setup perfectly for your bass!
1) With the bass on its side, put the buggie’s loop over the endpin. The body of the buggie should contact the bass at the bass’s heel. The key to having your bass stand up (unattended) on the buggie is to adjust the distance between the plastic loop and the buggie body (photo at left) so that the bass is balanced when standing.
2) Next, you will want to adjust the tension for the top buckle. This is easily done by moving the buckle closer or further from the buggie. When securing the strap to your bass, we recommend running the strap under the fingerboard and then behind the neck of the bass (see photo at left). If you are using a bass case, you will want to place the securing straps around the bass at a slightly higher position: just below the heel of the neck of the bass.
