OVERVIEW

A safe way to store your bass when not in use.

Never again do you have to worry about leaning your bass against your cab only to have it bumped and losing your favorite axe when the neck cracks from the fall. With the Bass Keeper strap, when you're not using your guitar, it's securely fastened with Velcro straps that attach to the side or handle of your cab and around the neck of the guitar. It'll comfortably rest there so you can rest easy too. It's also a great way to store your back up bass during a gig.

FEATURES
  • Attaches to handle or side of cab

      Comments about Markbass Bass Keeper Strap:

      A handy, inexpensive alternative to having a guitar stand on stage. My experience with guitar stands on a tight stage is that they're an accident waiting to happen. The Basskeeper takes up little room in your gear bag and no room on stage. One of the best purchases I've made lately.

          Comments about Markbass Bass Keeper Strap:

          A simple accessory, well made and convenient. If you gig regularly, one of the most important considerations is cutting down on weight and setup/teardown time. This strap means you can leave the extra weight of an instrument stand at home. Its thick, wide Velcro securely fastens to either an amp handle or directly to carpet covered cabinets. Once you put it there, it will not move even with the heaviest of instruments attached. There's generous padding on the bass-facing interior, to keep your neck safe from any chafing. And since it can remain on your cabinet, it's also one less thing to forget or leave at the venue. Finally, since it puts your instrument right up against the cabinet, it saves space versus a stand. USD 20 (at time of writing) may seem steep for a vinyl and Velcro strap, until you try it -- then you'll love it.

          • Small Gigs

          Comments about Markbass Bass Keeper Strap:

          This is a very simple device that works better than what I expected: attach to cabinet handle and hang your bass on the side of your cab. It hold my P-Bass well, and I feel it would still work safely with heavier basses, the velcro is very strong.
          One thing I did not consider when buying this is that it doesn't fit well with the handles in my Eden cabinets, which have a very particular shape, but I'm attaching the "Bass Keeper" by my rack case on top of the cabs... I just hope the rat fur stays there.
          Sure saves space, though, I don't use my bass holder anymore at small gigs.

          It works very well... I can't stand the MarkWorld logo. I play bass. I loved the MarkBass. Should be FBBU for bass by bass. Really if I knew it said MarkWorld I probably wouldn't have bought it.

            This is a great product, highly functional and innovative. Saves time over using a tradition instrument stand and is way more secure. I always worried about my bass getting knocked over before using a old fashion stand. Now I save room on the stage and the don't worry because the bass is secure.

            Thanks MarkBass, the Bass Keeper Strap is great!

            Comments about Markbass Bass Keeper Strap:

            The previous comments cover everything well. Just make sure that your cab's carry handle or carpeted corner is high enough off the floor to be able to wrap the Bass Keeper Strap around the neck. I especially agree with the comment about putting something under the strap pin to support it, and so it doesn't slide on the floor. Maybe glue a couple pieces of carpet padding together.

                This is a great thing! Costs as much as a cheap stand but is far more secure. Easy to use and helps keep my on stage real estate to a minimum. Slapped on the side of my vertically setup Markbass NY122 it looks like it was meant to be.

                Pleasantly Suprised

                By Peter Tambroni

                from Chicago

                Comments about Markbass Bass Keeper Strap:

                This turned out to be more useful than I thought - especially since you can stick it anywhere on the amp. When carrying my amp I use it to hold the power cord.
                I thought it would only attached to a handle but the velcro also adheres to the fuzz / carpet of the cabinet nicely as well.
                Definitely well made.
                About twice as much as it should be.
