New Cronkhite/torpedo

Postby MikeMason » Wed Jul 04, 2018 10:26 am

I ordered a two tone leather bag for my yfb 621. This is my fourth leather and fifth overall Cronkhite bag. I can’t tell any difference between this and the California made ones. Perfect in every way.

That’s good to hear, but no surprise. I love my torpedo trumpet case.

I'm up to four myself, three Californias and one post-acquisition, but only one is leather (which I bought used- thanks, Tubaport). Sure they're more expensive, but no other bag I've tried works as well for me.

You're welcome, Frank! They really are great bags. Glad that one is working out well for you!
