No - I got the Miraphone bag for my B&S 3301, which came in a wooden DEG (?) case that weighs about 45 lb. The fit happens to be perfect.

The Musica B&S is 43" tall and the bell is 16.5". It came in an older Protec (when they called it Protec International). It is slightly long - but good enough. It has backpack straps but they are much less comfortable than the Miraphone. I think the current version of it is called the Gold Series. Dillon has one. It is the only bag that I have seen that would fit. Except for Cronkhite... :D

(I bet our stencils are slightly different. I will PM you. I would like to compare them.)

The ProTec Gold series bag model C240 is an acceptable fit for the B&S/VMI 101 tubas - The length is good, the width is a little wide, but overall decent fit and excellent bang for the buck. A side loader, no idea on top loaders.

PS: always shop Dillon last. Their prices are frequently less than what Google finds, and shipping is free (except for tubas and hard tuba cases).
