Gaines Cluster Research Bass Wheel

I have used this wheel myself for over twenty years. I don’t believe there is a better wheel to be found – anywhere. Although it is not cheap, I think it is the sort of investment that any serious and active bass player will look back on, and be glad they bought one!

Some of the less expensive wheels have problems – the “semi-pneumatic” wheels are spongy on the inside; if the rubber tire wears unevenly, they deteriorate quickly from that point on, and you’ll go “clip CLOP, clip CLOP” down the street. The Gaines “U bracket” is much sturdier than the “L bracket” found on some less-expensive brands.
