NY airport security broke my double bassmain
From the US bassist Louis Levitt, a member of Sybarite5:
Flying from Newark EWR to San Diego SAN Feb 7th 7:55 pm flight 2304.
The bass was checked in and hand delivered to TSA by me at which point they refused to allow me to be present for the screening, but assured me that it would not be opened.
The bass is in a case by David Gage made out of carbon fiber. The bass is circa 1887 and valued at over $100,000. But as you know that its not about the money because it’s insured. It’s about preserving the instruments and history for future generations.
