Upright Bass Wheel
This is our new String Emporium upright bass
wheel for $54. We liked the practicality of this specially
made, soft, non-inflated cushy tire much better than the inflatable
They are just perfect for the exact amount of shock absorption
needed for the bass when moving along on bumpy sidewalks or streets.
This is so important: too much shock will eventually over
time shake the endpin block loose on the bass.

Firm, easy to use and stroll with, but not too soft that it might
create drag or too clumsy. While they are more money, we
still chose them over the pneumatic (air) type because they will
always maintain the same pressure feel and protection,
plus they will never leak or go flat. Just super reliable.
This upright bass wheel will fit any standard, 10mm endpin
shaft. You simply take out your endpin and put the wheel in
the same hole and tighten as you would your endpin. You can change or fix any angle you like on
this wheel and once you do, with rigid lock nuts, will hold firm
indefinitely. Personally, I like to push the bass directly in
front of me with the back of the bass in front and the back of the
neck leaning backward, almost resting on my collarbone. Some
of my other 'bass brethren' prefer the sideways or 3/4 angle.
Whatever the case may be, you can fool around with that and fix
whatever angle you like.
Why this is the best
upright bass wheel:
- Solid, USA Du-Bro® tires made with special dense air-foam
rubber that feels like deluxe pnuematic tire, but will not wear out after many years hard use
- Shock absorbing rubber, yet will never go flat, leak or need air
- Changeable and adjustable wheel angle
- Very solid, well made finish on thick, heavy duty, hardened
- Attractive chrome finish
- 10mm endpin shaft size (fits most all basses)
The SE Upright Bass Wheel, is just right. At $54, it will not be
the cheapest bass wheel out there, but it's the best quality and
just a smart wheel to use. This will give many, many years of
