Greg Sarchet recently sent me a link to an NPR story about the difficulties Gary Karr recalls facing while flying with a double bass. Gary quit touring in 2001, just before security measures at airports started tightening. I haven’t flown since 2001 myself, and I remember flight with a bass being highly annoying even then. Check out his story by clicking the photo and then clicking “listen” at the top of the page (sorry I can’t embed it here).
