    Can anyone recommend a good double gig bag ? I am looking for one that has two seperate compartments, not the kind that has a piece of stiff material inside to keep the basses apart.


    thanks,

    usa cases (aka modern cases) makes a great double gig bag - i have two of them. they are big enough to even fit my 8 strings, which are 48" long from tip to tail. good bag.

    I used to have one of the ones JT mentions. It's good...but the Undercover ones are MUCH better, IMO. Lots more padding, heavier grade cordura, and much tougher zippers...oh yeah, and two really nice padded shoulder straps. :D

    I'm pretty darned thrilled with my Levy's bag. I've had it three or four years and it still looks great.

    and it just so happens that Gard can give you the hook up with one of these bad boys. Its a great gig bag, I have an undercover double and it is very nicely padded with a thick wall of padding to separate your basses...

    ...except the undercover is a single case with a piece of padding in the middle, isn't it? if so, that's what the poster said that he didn't want.

    I've never thought of it, but I guess I am near perfect pitch also. Since the F# was used as an example, I hummed it out, then walked across the room to pluck my bass.....yup, right on. I can also discern very slight out of tune probs.....bothers me badly. I cannot for the most part just tell you what note I am hearing like darkmazada can, that is wild.

    The one out of tune song that hinders me the most every time I hear it, is JPJ's bass on Led Zep's "rock and roll". Than ones pretty easy to pick out though.

    Yeah, well...I used to feel that these types of double bags were not a good choice, until I actually got a chance to check the Undercover out. Trust me, there is no negative to this bag, "seperate compartments" or not. I've had several double bags, and this thing has more protection between the compartments than ANY double bag I've ever seen, two zippers or one.

    Of course, if Don doesn't want it, then he doesn't have to get it, but overlooking it solely becase of having one zipper instead of two?

    thanks for your opinions guys...and also to ANBassist for his thoughts on perfect pitch...Though it sounds more to me like well developed relative pitch and a good ear.:D

    Don


    Still haven't decided on a bag...
     
  11. I've got an Undercover double (and single) gig bag... works great for me.
