I’m interested to see what others are using. I know many are just content with gigbags... but I like a hard case. I would love to hear any ideas. I’ve not found anything that I’m completely satisfied with. I’m not crazy about the stock gig bag that came with my NXT4... the bass itself measures 53” x 6” x 4” I bought what was advertised as a cheap used sportube series 2 but turned out to be a series 3, so I had to fabricate some extra padding to slide support the bass and stand inside the bag. It's not the easiest thing to extract from the case and more bulky than necessary. Then I found a round case made from culvert pipe, about 5 ft by 8 inches. It's ok, less bulky than the sportube, again it's not easy access. It’s the best I’ve found so far. I know I'm being picky but I'm continually looking for a better case in a reasonable price range. I would love to have a padded hinged case or one that could easily be padded that I could lay the bass in. I don’t really care if it has room for the stand, I can find plenty of things it will fit in and just latch it to a case. Pelican has a Storm case that looks like it would work, a bit pricey but about what a new sportube 2 would cost, possibly enough room for bass and stand. Yes bulky but easier access. Plano has a jumbo fishing rod case but looks pretty long at the shortest length, and would be a top loading device. I’ve heard about recurve bow cases but cannot find anything that looks like a fit. I really do not understand why an actual case, and not an expensive flight case is not available for these things. I have considered building one but my construction skills result less than adequate products. The last case I built was for a turned out to be a 40 lb. case for a 40 lb. keyboard. Custom shops want as much as a flight case would cost to build one. Would live to see any ideas y’all have come up with.
