Yamaha warns not to climb in musical instrument cases

Recommended Posts

Chest freezers, washing machines and gas cylinders will soon be issued with similar safety warnings. It's The Law.

I never would have figured that out for myself. Now for a reckless sip of what I presume is room-temperature tea I just made.

I can’t wait until every bass purchase comes with end-user safety training.

 

”No, mate, you’ve got it backwards. The bass goes in the case here and you stay outside and carry it...

 

 

 

...using your hands.”

Kind of reminds me of those school assembly tellings-off...

"Now we have become aware that some of you [looks around the room, eyes lingering on the kid who was caught doing the awesome bass-case ride down the corridor we've all been talking about] have been thinking about riding in cases from the music department. I would like to make it clear to anyone who is thinking of stealing school property and joy-riding around in it, putting themselves and other students in danger- and to those who would help them- that if caught, you will be spending lunchtimes with me in my office, and will have a letter sent home with you. I hope that after last week's incident you will all have a good, long think about the importance of your studies, and of the safety of those around you.

Do I make myself clear?

Good, now open your books at hymn numer 94, Autumn Days... [cue out of tune upright piano]"

[We all glance at each other, glad someone had the balls to do something so exiting, and relieved we don't have to take the fallout.]

If I was Yamaha I'd have taken the opportunity to promote their cases as the most comfortable, safe ones out there, guaranteed to get you from A to B in one piece.

Apparently, this announcement was due to Carlos Ghosn's great escape from Japan...!

Just before assembly, we used to put drawing pins in the felt of the hammers in our school piano. The music teacher would play 4 bars at the start of the hymn sounding like she was in a honky tonk bar.

Is it time for an ‘ageing bass players in gig bags’ thread?

Without pictures this post is useless :)

Hasn't every double bass player tried to clamber inside their gig bag and zip it up at least once, just to see it they can? It can't be just me!?
