    I have a featherweight box from Aguilar sitting on my desk at work right now. Since I can't play through it yet, I thought I'd surf around and look for a carry bag for it. I like the Aggie bag, but the graphics are ugly as sin. I'm leaning towards a nice laptop bag.

    What do y'all use to carry your micro?



    Apologies if this has been asked before.

    The OEM Aguilar bag is among the best I've run across. Heavy duty, of course, perfect fit, great padding, etc.

    The logo... well, it is the Aguilar logo;)

    The 500 bag is perfect. The only downside to the 350 bag is that the amp, and hence the bag, is so small that the cable pocket has very little space.

    Highly recommended if you have the cash.

    I have on occasion used a doubled grocery bag. Seriously. Doesn't look cool but it works. We're not talking about a major tour, of course. :)

    Great answers guys! I'm just interested for curiosity's sake as I am for my own needs.


    Does anyone think the Mono tick would work well?

    I'm not sure if it has enough padding for an amp, or if my TH500 would even fit, but I've been wanting a Mono gig bag and the tick would make carrying the two a cinch.

    The 500 won't fit in the tick, per other posts.

    I use a backpack for my TH500. Does not provide protection, but I don't move it far.

    Also gives me room for lots of cables, charts, tuner, or anything else I need that does not fit in the gig bag.

    I have an ancient Tandy laptop bag that I found years ago. It fits my Walter Woods or my Markbass perfectly.

    Was using a laptop bag when I had the PF350 but I've got a PF800 now and I use a Gator bag. It's OK...I bought it because it was cheap, padded, and would do decently for light duty. But for a small micro, I'd just go get the smallest laptop bag that'll fit it.

    I carry my TH350 head in the Aggie bag that was made to carry it. Perfect fit.

    If you don't like the logo, then just find some sort of graphic to cover it, or even mask it with duct tape or something.

    I'd use the Aggie bag for sure. It looks like a really nice bag.

    For my Walkabout I use the Mesa bag
    For my GK MB500 and MB200 I just shove it in the front pocket of my gig bag.

    Laptop bag for my Streamliner, works very well. If I were touring heavy I would get a hard case, like a Pelican.

    I had a Sega Game Gear bag for my TH500. Worked great and looked cool.

    I bought another Gator Case this week for some gear, A G-MIX-B1212 for $35. For a soft gig bag, good value and well made.

    Internal dimensions are 12" X 11.5" X 5.5"

    I use the Aggy bag. Great bag, convenient, and I like the big logo. :D
