A couple of weeks ago, I put out a post about my new Honda Element and what a great bass car it is. Double bassist Bob Strickland wrote in with another good recommendation for a bass car from Honda:
Jason, my friend has an Element. They are, indeed, great musician cars!
I just bought a 2010 Honda FIT. I bought it because it averages 30 mpg, and because I can fit all my bass stuff in it. Before I bought it, I made the salesman let me take it home and load it up. Have you ever seen one of these cars? They look TINY!!! But they are so well-designed. The seats lay down completely flat with just a flip of a switch.
So, I took the thing home. In the back, I put the following:
My music stand (a big school stand, non-collapseable)
3 microphone stands
my collapseable stool
a 4 by 6 rug
my 3/4 double bass
my Gallien Krueger MB150 amp with matching extension cabinet
a small PA system and mixer
And I still had extra room! Amazing. They are truly amazing little cars, ergonomically well-designed, and the to get 30 MPG avg with that much capacity is something else!
