: i would like some help understanding the world of insuring a double bass. i asked my state farm folks and they said if i get paid using it they can't insure it. well, i gig and travel in addition to practicing in my room, so that's out. my bass is worth about $6k. do we have to go through independent instrument insurance firms or something? or the union?

Follow the link and go to Music Pro Insurance. Covered for damage while gigging, theft, basically anything but normal wear and tear. You can get $10000 worth of insurance w/ a $100 deductible for around $75 a year. Cheaper than Mertz-Huber through the union. I've never known anyone with a claim for doublebass, but I heard of a guy on tour with a country band around here that had a claim (I heard this second-hand) and got paid promptly.
