Description

We used to carry a (once very popular) "Professional" bass bag, years ago, which was a step up in padding and durability from our (still very popular) Gollihur Bass Bag. While our Gollihur gig bag is very solid and useful for "weekend warriors" and those who play out occasionally, a player who is hitting the pavement several times a week might just see the appeal in a bag with a more rugged design spec -- something designed for a true professional player.
 
Those "Pro" bags aren't available anymore, and we've been looking for a replacement for some time. As it turned out, the answer was literally in our back room! Sam was recently in the midst of a move, and he stored some of his music gear in the warehouse for a few days to avoid having it mishandled by movers. I got a look at the bag he's been using on his bass (for years) and asked him about it; as it turns out, it's by Protec - a company that I already do business with!
 
Protec specifically says that this bag is "designed for professionals." I concur. It has a durable, weather-resistant ballistic nylon exterior, with a thickly padded structure. I've always been a fan of dense, closed-cell foam for bass cases, not the pillowy fiber-fill stuff that's good for ornamental pillows (but not so great for impact protection). And this bag has the stuff - when you squeeze it, the padding feels like a 20mm thick wetsuit, like neoprene (I don't know exactly what kind of foam it actually is, but it's got that kind of density).
 
It's got (count 'em!) six exterior handles, many with rubber grips, for all of your "wrangling" needs - like struggling to get it into a hatchback. One of my favorite features is the convenient bow pocket -- which includes a removable, soft two-bow case that has stiffener strips in it for structure. It's got a dedicated opening for the endpin to extend through, as well as a few skid-patches on the bottom to prevent wear-through. All zippers are strong and confidence-inspiring, and they feature rubber-covered pulls for comfort and anti-scratching concerns. Finally, there are three exterior pockets for easy access to sheet music and accessories.

It's a sweet bag.

    A great reliable bag that has served me for years!

    I bought this bag to protect my bass when I first got it almost eight years ago now. Since then I’ve upgraded the strings, endpin, fingerboard, pickup, and bridge all at least once. The only accessory I started out with that I’ve never wanted to change was this case. It has been a valiant protector of my bass since the beginning, and it’s still going strong. Whether it be running through a thunderstorm to get to a gig, or having a bass amp fall on it while driving on the highway, I’m always reassured that my bass will be safe. This case is rock solid and I’d recommend it to anyone who wants that extra layer of protection, or is a tad bit clumsy like me.
