    This has probably been mentioned on here before, but I've come up with an inexpensive, or at least less expensive double bass bow case (fits French bow). It's a Mizerak pool cue case, costs $20, and fits a single bow nicely. You have to remove the center divider, but it will fit a French bow style nicely. Much less expensive than the least expensive ProTec or Bobelock.

    Works great.
  2. What's the inside width? I'm trying to figure if it'll hold my German bow.

    Inside width is ~2" to 2 1/4", I seriously doubt it will hold a german bow. That's why I said it fits a french bow nicely. I'll post a picture tonight.

    Just bought this case for my French bow:


    The bow fits without needing to remove the cue stick divider. Even though the inside of the case is generally soft, the bow is a few inches shorter than the case and rattled a bit within. So I pushed an old (but clean) rag towards the bottom, and my bow is now secure.

    The attached chalk case also makes a handy place to put your rosin and cleaning rags.

    I use one of these, and it holds two French bows nicely.
