I was very happy with a bag we sold for a long time but always thought it would be nice to have a very special, high-quality bag, one that I could truly call my own. You'll find that this bag reflects some of my favorite features of the KIII bag that I used and sold for so long, but adds a few touches I liked. Here's the result - a roomy (click here for internal dimensions), well-padded, special case at a great price!

If you've been to my site before, you know that one of my most important criteria for a bass bag, aside from the obvious protection and price, is how easy it is to get on and off. I don't feel like having a wrestling match with a bag with one hand while trying to keep the bass steady with the other. These bags have zippers on both sides of the bag -- one that goes from the endpin to within a few inches of the top, and the other that just about opens to the top of the lower bout of the bass. As you see from the photo, this bag opens w-i-d-e, ready to swallow your bass without the aggravation other cases have caused me in the past. My old Kay bass is inside the case in the photo to the right - it fits it like a glove! Click on the image (detailed diagram) below to see detailed measurements of the case.




Features:
  • FIVE double stitched handles for easy maneuvering, carrying and transporting - a heavily reinforced double suitcase style on the side for both vertical and horizontal carrying, plus an adjustable length lower bout handle so you can set it for your reach length. Plus, this case adds a trio of what I like to call "wrangling" handles; one down near the endpin, a vertical grab type on the side and one up above the front pocket - these handles give you more handholds when you're trying to maneuver your bass into a small car or through a doorway. The latest version of the case adds a second suitcase-style handle on the other side.

  • Monster sized, self-healing zippers on both sides and all pockets. Smooth, luggage grade zippers provide long and trouble-free service.

  • "No stress" zipper stops at the end pin avoids "zipper-strip" and ensures a long life. Plenty of room for your endpin to support the instrument in transit, and it is accessible if you use a bass wheel.

  • Large padded bridge protector with our International BASS logo.

  • One bow pocket on the front. The bow pocket has been lengthened to 31 inches to accommodate longer bows. It does not "expand" and is not deep enough for most bow cases; it's designed only to hold a bow. We recommend putting a piece of stiff cardboard or plastic in the pocket to provide protection, if using with a wood bow.

  • Three accessory compartments on the back, including a string package-sized at the pegbox, plus one pocket on the front in the traditional position.

  • A pair of Metal D-rings (one on each side, near the upper bout) to help secure/carry the instrument. (See detail photos for closeups of the rings). Some owners have attached straps of their own (strap not included) to these anchor points for helping to support the bag when carrying it - but keep in mind that they are bent D-rings and care should be exercised when supporting the bass on a strap. ALWAYS keep an arm wrapped around the bass in case your strap slips off your shoulder or a component fails. The strap points are NOT a substitute for a properly engineered backpack system (like on our Professional Bag).

  • Rich lining with finished seams -- no rough edges to rub your bass the wrong way.

  • Extra thick, high density, 20mm two-stage foam padding that is nicely firm, not floppy, and sealed within the fabric of the case; the two complementary foam layers consist of a 15mm "cushy" foam for soft protection and a 5mm "stiff" layer to provide body and rigidity.

  • Durable Cordura style, heavy duty material outer shell, not that lightweight nylon fabric - and it's available in either black or in a very tasteful hunter green, adding a touch of class and individuality.

  • In spite of the many features, this bag weighs a mere 6.8 lbs!

  • Click for larger version of this graphic!Custom-embroidered "Bass" emblem - when the inevitable comedian sees you walking with the bass and asks, "is that a cello?" you can point to it and give them the appropriate look of disdain. Click on the image at right for a close-up. You'll also receive a matching BASS Oval sticker (see left column) with your order!

Will it fit your bass??? Click on the middle image below "...detailed diagram of this case's measurements." and compare the numbers to your instrument. And we know that the bag fits well on all the 3/4 sized, four-string basses we sell (Engelhardt's ful 3/4 sized lineup and our own Bulgarian fully carved bass) as well as 3/4 sized Kay basses.

Excellent website! It feels good to purchase from someone experienced with the products who can personally endorse them, and who takes the time to provide all the information you could ask for! I found out about your website through fellow bluegrassers, and my husband (he's the bass player, I play mandolin) absolutely loves the bass bag and bow I purchased from you. He's getting a new fingerboard for his birthday! If only I could find a site like this for mandolin...
Rebecca
I just got my new bass bag last week, and it's a beauty! I've been using an old, unpadded canvas bag since I got my bass almost 30 years ago now. This new bag is so well padded, nice to handle and appears to be so durable that I think I'll just ride my bass to the gigs and leave my car at home!

I hope these strings sound as good as I expect from the reviews I've seen on them. I'm looking for the Paul Chambers, Doug Watkins sound - lots of fat bottom and nice round tone!

Anyway, you do a great job of keeping the bass community supplied with good products at fair prices. Keep up the good work. Some day I will be ordering a Euphonic Audio i800 combo from you. Take care...
Brian
I put the Pirastro Obligato strings on the Swingmaster and had a luthier I found on your site lower the bridge and nut. It has a much nicer tone and plays easier. The stand is a real good idea, it really does result in more time playing. The bass bag is nice and heavy duty. The website is a real help. I appreciate the way you guys do business. Good products at a good price. I also appreciate your input and insight, on the various products that are available.
Gary
I recieved my new Custom Upright bass bag, symphony grade a couple weeks ago. Thank you!! I am VERY pleased with the bag, and trust me I researched them all over the web for a long time before deciding on this one, and was prepared to spend a lot more money too. It is a very secure, well padded fit; love all the handles. I ended up snapping a gym-bag shoulder strap to the D-rings on the case and can carry it on my back (barely, as I'm only 5 foot tall!) so I get around with it a lot faster these days. Feel free to post my comments on your website.

HI Mark

just wanted to say thanks for the great product. I've been playing rockabilly and double bass since I was about 14 (and am now 40) and wish this set up had been around then... it would have made life so much easier!!!

It arrived the other day and last night I set it up. The sound is brilliant... so nice to have the slap control, and tonight I'll be testing it out properly in rehearsals ready for the weekend. The case you sent too is top quality and a great price...

The products are ace though, even with Mr.Blair steeling some extra cash off me (by way of VAT taxes) ;-)

thanks for your professional service and product... I'll be recommending it to the rest of the uk 'crew' ;-) - Cheers!
Johnny
I received my order today and I am very pleased with the bass bag that i purchased, it is every bit what you advertised it to be and I am extremely satisfied with it and I will definetly look to your website in the future for any future needs that I might have to purchase for my bass.
Jeremy N
As an amateur bass player (bluegrass mostly, I really appreciated the informative article and recommendation for a pickup. I have purchased a Bass Max pick-up and your BASS bass bag and am very satisfied.

Bob,
I received last month a fine bow, Ingles stand, and Gollihur bag. All excellent products. The bow sounds wonderful, the bag is very nice, and the stand works well. In fact, I really appreciate your comments on your web page comparing the Ingles to the MBS. I liked the rigidity of the MBS, but it is fantastic to grab it out of the stand and play (my endpin is extended about 9"). This is invaluable at a gig which requires me to switch between electric and upright quickly.

#1- You are the ONLY person on the WORLD that has e-mailed me back within minutes. I can't get an answer that quick by sticking my head out the window and yelling.
#2- All the help was OUTSTANDING! I'm glad someone still helps goofy people, of which I am one.
#3- The bag is SUPER! I have seen sleeping bags not nearly as nice as this and it is a STEAL for the money. I still can't believe it. And it got here so fast! WOW!
#4- From now on I will deal exclusively with you and try and forget there are other shops out there. Duh- forgetting, forgetting--.
Thanks loads Mark. You were a really big help... You have gained an ally and a loyal customer.

I bought a Gollihur Bass bag, Ingles stand, and a set of bridge adjuster wheels. You have provided the best online shopping experience I've ever had. The Gollihur bag is great!!! It is the easiest I've ever used... it's easy to load the bass in my little truck with all of the extra handles and I use the little "D" rings and a couple of straps to hold it in place. Putting the bass in and out of the bag is super-convenient as well. The Ingles stand is like a giant super-strong guitar stand. I've never used this type of stand before, but it holds my bass very well and is built like a tank. It folds away nicely and sets-up easily. The wide range of adjustments means lots of "trying" to get it to fit the first time, so marking the adjustments with a Sharpie will ease set-up time. Thank you for your research in finding useful products for bassists and I will continue to order from your company exclusively. Expect an order for some pickups and another bag for my new ES-9...

I received my new bass bag Tuesday, and took it to its gig first yesterday. I'm very pleased. The bag fits my bass like a glove, and looks great.

I've had trouble finding the perfect bag for my instrument, which is larger than most 3/4 size basses (the upper bout is 22"). I've had to send one bag back to the store, and ruined the zipper on another. But not this one.

Great product and great service!-- five stars for both! I especially appreciate you providing the bag's inside measurements on your website. That helped me order with more confidence. Thanks.
David G
This is the most AWESOME bass bag I have ever seen for the price. It's like ones that you'd pay hundreds of dollars for anywhere else.
Good job, guys.

I meant to write back sooner... I'm not in the habit of sending these types of messages, but your service was exceptional and I wanted to say "thanks!" I placed my order after lunch on a Thursday and received an immediate email confirmation. Within the hour another email arrived saying my new bass bag had shipped! It arrived the following Tuesday. And all of this with free shipping...

I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of this cover. I think it will last much longer than any other I've owned - it's sturdy and well padded. I ordered the green thinking that it would be like no other in my neck of the woods. This may not hold true for long because the first time I carried it out two players I know copied down the web address to order one of their own! I highly recommend you folks!
Robert S (June 2010)
Bag arrived... I like it, lots of handles make it easy to handle in all situations, and it looks solid. It has been put to use already. Worth waiting for. Thanks.
Eilif J. (September 2010)
G'day!! I hope you all well, I thought that I drop a line about my recent order! It arrived on my doorstep this morning and after I put my bass in it I have realised that for the price it is indeed the best looking, well padded beautiful case!! Some of my friends paid over 400$ for various types and brand bags but your case is fantastic! Fits my bass so well! Thank you!
Anti B (Oct 2010)
My new bass bag from you is great quality. Everthing I have bought from you from amps to pickups and tuners has delivered the results you advertised. You talk the talk and walk the walk. Great job guys!
Terry M. (July 2011)
Just wanted you to know, my husband is a string bass player. Mostly he plays bluegrass, old time, some country, folk-a mix. I bought him the bass gig bag for his birthday a couple months ago -- He loves it. It replaced a 30 year old case covered in duct tape with only one handle that sometimes ripped off. Thanks for a great product.
D.J. (September 2013)
I wanted write you and thank you for my Gollihur Upright Bass Bag 3/4 size in forest green. Not only is it a well padded and well made bag but the color is terrific. The shell with its black webbing adds little extra strength at the seams and makes it have a great look as well. Thanks for this great bag for my prized bass!
Mark R (November 2013)
The Bass Buggy is genius. And the bass case is beautiful, well made, and arrived incredibly fast. Thanks!
Eva M. (April 2016)
Hi Mark, Got your "Tips" letter today on how to care for my new bass bag (which arrived yesterday). I've always been pleased with the special attention you give customers, like these tips, and I wanted to let you know it is appreciated. Thanks! You might want to add to that first paragraph, "But the very best way to 'carry' your bass is with a Bass Buggie." I purchased one from you back in 2012 and absolutely love it. Use it all the time. I get a lot of positive inquiries about it. When I do, I direct them to your web site. The only 'negative' comments I get are directed at me ... "You too old to lift that thing?" To which I reply, "With age comes wisdom." Thanks again for your great service!
