    So, I have been wondering about this for a while, maybe someone has similar experiences?

    I am thinking about getting a dual bass bag (speficically either the Mono dual, or reunion blues RBX double bass).

    My situation is: I usually carry a loot of instruments for my gigs. I usually play double bass (which is always a burden to carry), electric bass (mostly only one, but some times a fretted and a fretless) and I also play cavaquinho (a brazilian samba ukulele), tambourine and other percursion stuff. Which ends up being a loot of backpacks to fit the smaller stuff plus the basses. I was wondering if I get a double bag I could, when not carrying 2 electric basses in it, actually use one compartment to put t percursion and cavaquinho in. Is that reasonable?

    Has someone used one of the bass pockets in a double bag to fit other stuff?? Does it work?

    Further, between the mono dual and the reunion blues rbx double, which one would you reccomend?

    Looking forward for your ideas :)

    Cheers!

    I carry a double Mono case 2-5 times a week for years...Its held up pretty good. I hope Music Area comes up with one because I'm really liking their singles.

    Been using a Mono Dual [bought slightly used on TB] for about a year. I typically bring 2 basses [tuned standard & 1/2 step down] and the Mono does the job perfectly. Due to the weight of 2 basses I don't fill the storage pockets. I have a separate backpack for pedals, cords, and other incidentals.

    I've gotta say, I LOVE the idea of a dual case, but after using them for a few years, I've found carrying two singles is MUCH easier for me. The weight of two basses with additional "stuff" in the pockets is just too much and becomes a struggle. Two singles let me carry everything without burden, and double the pocket space.

    I’ve been happily using the Mono Dual for a few years, heavy abuse. Still going strong.

    Occasionally* I carry just one bass in it, and throw a stand, maybe a DMX controller, whatever I need that night, into the empty side, for ease of carry.

    Works fine. I try to flatten the load so as not to have any pointy thing aiming at the bass in the other side.

    *Since my T-Bird doesn’t fit in the Mono Dual, I’ve been carrying that in its HSC, and just one other bass in the Mono.
