    I'm looking for a raincover for my double bass gigbag when I'm out carrying it rainy days.
    It's quite common with rain covers for cello (I'm a cellist aswell) but I haven't seen any for double bass.
    Is there anyone who knows anything?

    I've been thinking of sewing my own (with the cello cover as an original) but it would be easier to just buy it from somewhere.

    What kind of bass case do you have? Rain covers are usually for "hard" cello cases.

    I carry one of those extra-large disposable rain ponchos in my case, in case I get caught in a downpour. You can buy them in packs of 5 or 10 on amazon.

    They don't cover the whole case, but could get you out of a jam.

    Gage had something for awhile a few years back, but it doesn't look like they still do. Oh well...

    Headed out to practice in the rain yesterday. Always striving to be classy, I slipped a large black contractor's trash bag over the top. :D

    In the past when in harder rains for longer periods, I have placed one over the top and another over the bottom, holding the ends of both with the hand that holds the case handle.
