Gig bag for 2165

Postby FatCat » Sat Dec 09, 2017 3:18 pm

Hi all,

I’ve recently purchased a 2165 without a soft case. As you would understand, carrying a hard case around can be quite a pain :roll:

Thus, I am seeking your wisdom regarding the purchase of a new bag. What brand/model would you recommend?

Thanks :tuba:

Cronkhite makes a bag that is tailored to the 2165. It fits *very* well, is very well made. It is also very spendy. But I can never understand why people spend many thousands of dollars on a tuba and then suddenly become miserly when it comes to the thing the horn lives in. I swear, some of the Freak Jury here would pack York #3 in a giant tube sock (with eighties-era stripes) if they could. What foolishness!

My recently added 2nd choice would be a Messina Case.
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.

Thanks for your advice!

Which model should I select if ordering from the website? When I click on “extra large” which model do I choose given that there is no 2165 option?

Thanks again :D

If you want a top loading bag, consider Götz. I think they are the supplier for bags when you buy one from MW...?
