SEEKING Gigbag Repairs in NYC area

Post by BrassoProfundo »

Fellow Tuba Sherpas!

Does anyone have any recommendations for gig bag repair providers in the NYC area? I've got a Protec bag one of whose shoulder straps is beginning to come loose at the top and needs restitching and reinforcement. The strap anchors at bottom look also as if they're just beginning to fray from friction with triangular black metal loops.

Weekly I haul a Cerveny Kaisertuba through Gotham's gawdy, naughty, bawdy, haughty streets and subways, about half a mile on foot each way, and the bag's performed without incident for the past nine months... until this.

Anyone with knowledge and better yet experience of good gig bag repair providers, please let me know.

Thanks!!

Rago Brothers Shoe and Leather Repair in Morristown is the best place near NYC to get a tuba gig bag repaired. I looked almost everywhere in the area for a place that would repair my Yamaha 821 gig bag and they were the only place who accepted to do the repair. Plus they did a damn fine job, excellent service also. I spoke with the owner directly about how I wanted the repair done and his team got it done in just a few days perfectly. Definitely give them a call first, I doubt they would turn anything down.

Thanks, DylanTuba!! Pleasant reception via phone at Rago Bros!
If I can't find someone who's more appealing in NYC, I'll be out that way around Thanksgiving.

Anyone with recommendations closer to/in NYC? THANKS!!
