Abstract: If one discards some of the elements from the Walsh family, an ancient example of a system that serves as a Schauder basis for each of the -spaces, with , the residual system will not be a Schauder basis for any of those spaces. Nevertheless, Price has shown that each member of a large class of such subsystems is complete on subsets of that have measure arbitrarily close to . In the present work, it is shown that subsystems of this kind can be multiplicatively completed in such a way that the resulting systems are quasibases for each space , , from which the earlier completeness result follows as a corollary.
