    Question:

    Is the Incase dub bag made like all other aftermarket bags/cases? As in they are made to put a Fender P/Jazz 'standard' bass into.

    I have been looking at this bag and like the idea of carrying the bass and backup into a bar or wherever you play versus two hardcases banging everyone around.

    I use Spector basses and have found they tend to slide around in a 'Standard' case. Are there provisions for snugging up your bass once inside the Incase bag?

    Anyone use the incase with a non-standard type bass?

    Thanks.

    I use mine for PBasses, Stingray 5, Dingwall Afterburner and a Rob Allen Mouse in various combinations. Truthfully weight is a bigger issue. These cases are not real light when empty. Two Fenders in one of these things will break your back. That said, I have no problems toting the Afterburner (7.5 lbs, 37" scale B string) and the Mouse (30" scale 5.5 lbs) together. The center divider is well padded and the neck support helps keep the bottom one still. IMO a better solution is a Slim Bag (or other single gig bag) and a hard case for the other bass. The Dub is a beast with two normal basses in it).

    Thanks Joe. Looks like the Dub case weighs 11.5 pounds empty, throw in another 20 pounds of basses, plus some cables and who knows what else and you have a pretty good load in the making. I know me and if there is a pocket on it, I will put something in it.

    I was thinking of the backpack arrangement as to hefting it up for carry. Do you use that or just carry like a case with one hand? I usually bring the PA with me so trying to save a couple of trips here and there.

    Thanks for your reply.

    When I have it loaded down, it's usually better to use the side handle. I do use the strap that doesn't have the full harness, but it's not an easy carry. The full harness system on these in a PITA and I tend to leave it zipped up in its compartment. IMO the whole thing rides too high with the waist belt. I am 6'4" and would hit every door frame if I carried like that. I am not as big a fan of the Dub as I am the original Slim bag.

    I am 6'3" so that last bit of info just kept some money in my pocket. Guess I'll just stay with the hard cases.

    I'm sure when Stuart Spector sees me carrying around two of his basses with logo on the case, those quarterly sponsor checks will start rolling in!

    Thanks Joe!
