In this article, I would like to write about equipment with bias and prejudice.
Cases for musical instruments not only protect your cherished musical instruments from impacts, but they also protect them from damage caused by sudden changes in temperature and humidity.
There are roughly four types of cases.
- Lightweight and easy-to-carry "soft cases"
- Lightweight "Gig bags" that provide much better protection than a soft case.
- Sturdy "hard cases" made of wood or plastic
- “Semi-hard cases" that are not as lightweight as a gig bag, but are reasonably light and stronger than a gig bag.
For the author, "gig bags" and "soft cases" are considered ideal for those who use trains and bicycles as a means of transportation, and "hard cases" and "semi-hard cases" are recommended for those who travel by car or who travel a short distances on foot! Here are some cute, fashionable guitar cases and bass cases from among many products that I recommend!
■ High quality designs are popular!
MONO is a popular gig bag brand with a sporty design. The Mono Sleeve series has a structure that securely fits the guitar, so the guitar does not sway easily inside the case, reducing stress when transporting. Above all, the design is easy to carry to work or school and people easily get hooked on this for a variety of applications! The IGiG gig bag, which is also popular for its sporty design. A special rain cover that is very useful on rainy days is included with the case.
■ Color is important as well! For those looking for a gentle color
Additional padding has been added to the guitar head area and the lower end of the body to protect your cherished instrument. Above all, the pale tan has a mysterious, outdoor atmosphere that is very nice! In addition, there is also a cute tan-colored SKB hard case, an American case maker that produces cases for musical instruments, equipment, as well as rack cases.
■ Cool and sharp! A wonderful design that can be used regardless of user age!
From case maker REUNION BLUES established in 1976. It has thick padding and a Zero G handle that equally distributes the weight, and a cool design like no other. It is simply organized and easy to use! In addition, a gig bag made of high-grade artificial leather by the long-established gig bag brand, "GIGBAG", is also sharp & cool.
■ A gig bag with an outdoor feel that is popular even for city use
A gig bag from the British outdoor bag brand RITTER. This is the RITTER / RGP5 series that uses polyester jacquard weave for the exterior. The approximately 20mm thick padding securely protects your instrument. The unique design that fits well even in the city is wonderful.
■ Cutting-edge! A gig bag made with the musician in mind
The latest gig bag with outstanding usability from FENDER. It's lightweight, has plenty of storage, provides excellent protection, and is woven with ideas such as removable pockets and loops for inserting umbrellas. This is the best gig bag!
■ PLAYTECH gig bag: If you want to choose from abundant color variations at reasonable prices!
The 10mm thick padding protects the instrument securely, and it has backpack type shoulder straps and a storage pocket for outstanding usability. There are many color variations available, from simple and cool black to a variety of cute colors.
So, this time I wrote about cases that are indispensable for carrying instruments. Did you all enjoy it? There are various factors to consider when purchasing, such as color, design, and the presence or absence of storage pockets. Please try to find a case that you like.
