Hard Case and Gig Bag for King 1241.

Postby PlayTheTuba » Thu Oct 12, 2017 6:42 pm

Greetings Tubenet! This is my first time posting on Tubenet, my name is Raffi Artinian. I am the tuba player in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6KR4gJwZj4" target="_blank" target="_blank" target="_blank" target="_blank" target="_blank that was linked in the forum “Mouthpiece Hunting” by JoseU1. I own a low pitch Salvation Army 3+1 non-compensating Eb tuba which I added tubing to play in the key of D natural and I own a very beat up King 1241 with only the 22 inch upright bell.

Since I missed a chance to buy a hard case for the King 1241, what would be a good modern hard case to get for it? Is there a hard case on the market that can fit the tuba when the tubas has the bell attached? Even if such a case exists would it still be better to get separate cases for the body and the bell? I would also like to know what are good gig bags to get for this tuba as well. Would the Protec DELUXE TUBA BAG -UP TO 22 BELL be a good gig bag to get?

Also, since I am asking, what would be a good case for the Salvation Army tuba too? Thanks.

I've heard the larger Protec gig bag will fit the 1241. I'm not aware of a hard case that would fit the King unless you take it apart. Used King cases do come up on eBay occasionally. Taylor Music sells new 2-piece cases, although from the pic it looks like the bell case is designed for a recording bell. Give them a call, they might have a new or used case that will fit the upright bell also.

Thank you, that is a helpful link. I may need to contact them to see if it's possible for the upright bell to fit.

I have a King with the 19” upright bell and use the Wessex 410 gig bag. Fits well.
I’d guess that you could figure out which bag of theirs would work for the 22” bell knowing that the 410 works for the 19”.
Good luck!
