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.
Suitable for 1/10 to 4/4 sized basses

Bass Buggie Setup & Adjustment
1) With your bass on its side fit endpin through the plastic loop end of buggie.
2) Set the top side of the buggie chassis onto the side of the bass and bring the strap up the side.
3) Then bring the bungie cord around the neck securing end of bungie cord to the bungie buckle open hook.
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.
Can strap onto the bass body with or without a bag.
Is made of durable high impact molded plastic.
Overall dimensions are 36cm length and 16cm in diameter (wheels, height & width).
Inside platform length is 28.5cm.
Weight is 3 lbs., 2 oz.
It straps onto the endpin-body and the neck of the bass.
Adjusts to any size bass from 1/10 to 4/4.
Has non-marking durable wheels
Unlike a “bass wheel”, the Buggie:
Rolls easily and straight on ball bearing wheels.
Can make the bass stand upright on its own without support.
Allows endpin to remain in place while in use.
Does not put pressure on the lower block and prevents impact to the lower block from bumps in walkway.
Has a flexible body that allows shock absorption, therefore, further protecting the instrument.
For very rough terrain, the ‘buggie Cushion’ (see below) can be attached to the bass buggie body.
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.
Our pictures and video show how the DblBass Buggie should be adjusted, which allows the bass to stand upright on its own. But do not leave it unattended! The Buggie is not intended to be a stand. If you’re looking for a Bass Stand, click here.
