Helicon Gig Bags?

Does anybody know where someone could get a gig bag for a Helicon? Are the any companies that will custom make one?

Alteri does custom. I don't know if they'll do "super" custom, but all it will take is a phone call to find out.

is also referenced in an earlier thread.

I don't know how either gig bag works (this or Altieri) as i've no direct experience, but this is something i too may want to sort out for myself as well.

But in searching the forum, i came across an elephantine rant about cases and gig bags in general which i found worth the read.

Lemme know how your quest goes! And if i find something more useful, i'll chime in here again with it.

The German ones are very good in my opinion. Not loads of padding, but enough. Shoulder straps positioned well.
