Hi Guys

Here is just a tip for anyone out there who wants to take good care of there pride and joy lol

I have been looking for the best thing to protect the Bottom of the dij when resting it on the floor when busking or resting it on a hard surface. I have looked and looked and all I can find is a little mat what is made for this job.

I didn't think it looked much good so decided to make some thing and this is what i came up with.
I have used an old bike inner tube cut to size and glued back together this stretches around the bottom of any size dij and is very hard waring also if you are standing the dij up after playing it doubbels up as a great none slip surface when on a tile floor.

just a tip I wanted to share Hope someone finds this useful

Interesting, but it occurs to me that if you leave it on, saliva will get under the rubber and it won't be able to dry out. I'm a great believer in air circulation. Good idea for busking though

Hi There SeriousJohn

Sorry I forgot to point out that the rubber only sits on the outside of the dij just up to the edge of the bell. I try not to bend the rubber around to the inside for the reason you have pointed out sorry I for got to add that into my first post but yes that is a concern to me also that's why I only take it to the end. I have used this for quiet a few years now and had no problems or I wouldn't still use it :)
