Looking into using a Gator Tenor Sax Gig Bag for my Alto Clarinet. Anybody have one or used one? Would like some general feedback...or better ideas!

Thanks

Not a very good idea. There is nothing to protect it from doors, chairs, floors, other cases, other furniture...

Gig bags are not good protection, :shock: think of them as fitted dust covers, or retirement policies for repair men.

Try a real case or an alto sax case with the interior gutted and rebuilt to protect and support the instrument.

Use the regular Gator formed case. It's as light or lighter than some gig bags even, offers adequate protection for normal use. and is a versatile bag.


...and you can always do an advanced search :D of "Gator" for a lot of information.

Thanks for the info Gary. I was hoping to have a soft bag to lay the horn down in and then wrap it in a towel or some kind of cloth. Being that it's an Alto Clarinet I was planning on leaving the bell on and keeping the neck in the bell or in the side pocket. Whaddaya think?

Try the Gator GL. Its a hard shell covered with foam and fabric. Sturdy zippers and plenty of pockets, Plenty sturdy for daily use and light weight.
Around $70.OO at several vendors (Weiner, WWBW, etc.) I bought one. It's a good deal. www.gatorbags.com
