Gig Bag Suggestion

Postby adsteve » Thu Oct 19, 2017 1:39 pm

Anyone have any recommendations for a gig bag for a Yamaha 621CC? I've purchased gig bags before and have my favorites, but have never purchased one for a horn this small.

Thanks for your help!

I used to own a small Cerveny F tuba, which was the same physical size as the 3/4 Yamaha's. I bought a Cronkhite bag for it, and it was awesome!

Now, I'm not usually the biggest Cronkhite fan -- very well made, I just find them a little uncomfortable for huge tubas. For the small tuba, though, it was awesome! Compact, light, and very secure.

Not to mention, the smaller the Cronkhite bag, the smaller the cost (at least when Glenn was making them!).

The Cronkhite 621 series bags fit the horn perfectly. They do NOT have the snap-on, zippered music pouch or the integral zippered pouch by the shoulder straps. They do, however, have a zippered pouch on the bag itself where the snap-on bag usually lives. These are good bags in either Cordura or leather.
In the multiverse there is a TubeNet where we talk about how we greased our cat with toothpaste and hot sauce so it would fly better in the rain. Even then someone would ask whether the cat was lacquered or silver plated.

And if I ever order another Cronkhite, of any size, ^THIS is how I would order it. I liked it SO much better this way. Personal preference -- maybe I was just afraid of someone taking the entire pouch off of my gig bag on the NYC subway!

I, too, prefer the integral pouch. However, I really like the integral pouch on the back side, too, and cannot see why he did not include it on this smaller bag. It would have been a very usable space, at least for me. And I need that small space...

I own and have used a Yamaha 621 CC for the past 20 years and I've used an Altieri bag with it for the entire time. Works great for me.

When choosing a gig bag, always choose the hard case.
