Tuff-Bag™ Premium Deluxe
Upright Bass Covers
The best bass covers in the world, now available
in 3/4 and 7/8
Are you looking for a premium deluxe
upright double bass cover? This the new Tuff-Bag™.
It has every imaginable pocket and handle. The covers are built to
last a very long time and withstand many years of use (and abuse.)
They are simply the best cover on the planet: most protective, best
wearing, most affordable. $319
(compare to covers, in excess of $540!)Tuff-Bags™
come in one size: 3/4 medium, and fit about 85% of the basses out
there, including most 7/8 sized basses. There are no wheels attached
to this cover. (Wheels can add a lot of un-needed extra wear and
tear on the bottom ribs of your upright bass.)
This cover, while very affordably priced, compares favorably
to the most expensive, elite covers and we believe is the best
regardless of price!
More about what makes a good bass case.
As bass players, we know that you have to be able to rely on on a
bass cover that will protect your upright bass, offering dense
padding, pockets where you most need them (with plenty of room) and
key placement of handles so that when you're loading the bass in and
out of a car, the handles and pockets are strategically placed in a
balanced way that won't create any additional logistical problems
for transport. Additionally, there are no pockets that will bulge on
the side or bottom. For anyone out there that's had to load a wobbly
bass inside the car and then hit the brakes....you know what we
The fabric on the Tuff-Bag™ is water resistant (it's black,
reinforced nylon fabric that is normally used for very expensive
back packs.) As far as we know, this is the only bass cover, that
repels water. This material, while light weight, is super durable
and will not wear out. The pockets have super thick (rigid) flaps on
the tops (bow compartment, and front two pockets) so that when
zipping the pockets, one will not have to hold the other side
of the pocket to close it. If you are 'out there doing it', you know
how nice it is after a long gig to be able to load and zip up your
upright bass cover, without it flopping and moving around on you!
Glow in the dark? Another new,
improvement: Ever walk out of a gig wearing all black clothing,
carrying your bass? Cars and drivers can't see us!! We put these
smart looking 'running shoe' material throughout the cover in the
front and back. In the photos, we had difficulty just taking normal
shots of the front here because now matter what we did, the flash on
the camera would activate those strips. In normal, every day use,
the white areas are actually darker and blend in nicely. (Again,
this is the flash making them appear lighter.) At night under the
street light ambience, these strips keep you (and your bass) safer.
Below, we will try to show the normal daytime bass cover, then with
all the lights off, offer the 'night-time' shot. Ever see those
'dancing shoes' late at night when someone is out jogging? Not
suggesting running with a bass!
The handles are super "X" stitched re-enforced so that you
can depend on the handles lasting for a long time of hard use and
abuse. Other important qualities that make this the best selling,
best quality case in America, is the padding and zippers. Zippers?
Zippers are the number one, cheap short cut we see with most other
These zippers are heavy duty YKK brand zippers. This is the
Mercedes Benz of zipper companies. While they are more expensive,
cheap zippers are the first thing to "go" on a bass cover. The
padding is super thick (1"+) but while it is at least one inch
thick, the density of the padding is what makes the cover the
best buy. While several bass covers offer 1" padding, the real
test is the quality of the density and how long it stays this way.
Tuff-Bags™ come with nice, dense padding so that the cover will
not ever loose its protection or thickness. Cheap padding looks
great the first few months, but quickly gets thinner as the padding
looses its resiliency and thins out. The Tuff-Bags will not do
that. Last but not least, there is no reason why the hardest working
bass players should not expect the same performance and wear of
their bass cover. No pockets should tear, no zippers should break or
malfunction, and of course no handles or seams should ever break or
tear away. Tuff-Bags™....are TUFF and so is the warranty! The
Tuff-Bag is made for keeps. A great bag!
