Hey Dave

 

I can't really recommend a gig bag but I can steer you clear of the rock bags. One problem is that they're not designed for basses with fender type headstocks (only warwick type). I've also had problems with the one I got (double electric bass bag) and several people I know who've bought them have had similar problems.

 

Some of the fender ones I've seen in the catalogues look fairly good but I have no personal experience with them. Good luck, c-ya

I have to agree, steer clear of the Warwick Rockbags. They're plastic and breakable in all the important places. My Rockbag no longer has any shoulder straps because of Warwick's cost cutting.

 

A friend of mine has a Ritter gig bag which looks to be very well designed and well made. My major advice would be don't buy the cheapest one. Be prepared to spend some money on this bit of kit that will take care of your bass.

Free your mind and your ass will follow.

I've got a Ritter, and it's the best I've used.

 

It came/was shipped with a fretless I bought from someone in Connecticut - made the trip to FLA, and I use it all the time.

 

Well padded and has tons of storage.

I also have a Ritter bag, the Super-Pak. It offers good protection, and has a lot of room for storage, perhaps too much room. As stated, go for their higher priced models. Not especially cheap, but there are more expensive bags out there.

C. Alex has one as well IIRC, maybe he can add his 2 pounds worth here as well.

 

Peace,

I'm a lot more like I am now than I was when I got here.

I made the same decision a few months ago. We discussed this in this thread

 

After some consideration, I settled on the Summit Bass Bag (you'll find the link in the thread posted.) I have a close friend who owns a music store, and he could get the bag for me at a great price. The other bags mentioned are not generally available except from the manufacturer.

 

I eventually did NOT purchase such a bag...I got an Ashbory bass instead. Go Figure!

Still spendin' that political capital far faster than I can earn it...stretched way out on a limb here and looking for a better interest rate.

Guitar Research makes a servicable bag with pleanty of padding. Not much room for anything other than the axe, some cable and a tuner. Can be carried briefcase style or backpack style. You are on your own if you plan to pack a stomp box or two. They are quite reasonable.

I have a Guitar Research bag that is pretty well padded and a big pocket for cables, effects, music, etc and a smaller pocket by the headstock for your tuner, and other tools.

 

Only about $30 - $50.

 

Bad thing is the rubber part on the bottom ripped at the seam on one side, so now I have duct tape there.

 

Speaking of duct tape, I never thought it was actually used for taping the seals where a duct goes into another duct. I was helping my dad with the ductwork for the dryer.

 

go figure :D
