I have this bag for my Miraphone M5050 euphonium. It's the only bag that will accommodate that large horn without paying for custom made bag. I'm not real crazy about it being 'top-loading', but the padding is an inch thick and the hard circular disk in the bag's lid offers extra protection for the bell. Excellent bag!

Thanks for the good word. This is a new product for us, but it seems to be well made, is not too pricey, and with the difficulty of procuring a case like the Cronkhite, this Miraphone is a nice alternative.

You wouldn't happen to have one to fit an older 185 with a 15 in. bell?

Hey, Steve, can you figure out which one will fit the big Willson F tuba? (Used to be their only F tuba.) I have a Kurath F which is essentially the same horn. I am not happy with my current bag at all. I have one of these that was made for a 186, and it is too big in diameter and length. However, as much as I hate top loader bags this is a very well made product that is worth the money; I love mine and would like to see if there is a model that will better fit my F tuba. Thanks!
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.

Oh I see, "Hey Steve", that was for me. I don't know the size of a Willson F, but here's a list of the Miraphone gig bags and the interior dimensions:

Miraphone Tuba Gig Bags

...Looks like most Willsons are 37" long, so maybe the 100 or 102.

I already did that. I was hoping you had direct knowledge. I have had some gig bag purchases that were very disappointing because the listed size did not match the reality of the horn. Also, I have never seen most of those listed tubas. I am a 185/186/188 era guy. I have never seen any Miraphones newer than the large F they introduced in 1987 or so. Sorry. That is why I was asking. We don't get to see many horns here in Mississippi if we don't actually already own them. 8)

Thanks, anyway.

Not specifically, only the listed sizes, likely one of the F tuba gig bags will fit.

Nope. Only the 186 bag is long enough - but that is made to accept up to an 18.5 in bell - a 15 in. bell would just swim in it. Guess I'll just have to go the route of the new Cronhkite or custom Messina.
