Comments about Gard Compact Double Trumpet Gig Bag:
I bought this bag because it was the cheapest double trumpet case which had compartments that could be adjusted for different sizes. On that end, it is acceptable. The compartments are mid suspension rather than molded, which most photos do not show, and designed for the large trumpets (Bb and C). I use this to store my Schilke F/G trumpet, which has an extra Bell and extra slides. The mid suspension design with some modifications using the fastenings that come with the case, with my extra fastenings from my Protec trumpet case, put around the trumpet and parts will hold the merchandise in place. With this, the smaller trumpet and extra bell are secure for storage and do not slide inside the compartments. Any other molded plastic design would not work for the F/G trumpet. This is what I needed in the immediate future, other than the box the trumpet came in. However, I would be very careful in transporting trumpets in this bag, particularly nice ones and, if you're like me, the smaller trumpets. The mid suspension design is not something I have used before and I am unsure about it. I would be more confident with the mid suspension design with a single trumpet case. I am not confident with the level of protection in the double case, particularly if the fastenings were to come loose from a drop and if the trumpet jolted around in the compartments. Also, do NOT put weight on the case. Both of these would be an OUCH on the trumpet. For the same reasons, do NOT use this bag to travel unless you are willing to see your trumpet damaged. The bag is too big for the overhead bin. However, the bag does the job and the cost is MUCH MUCH less than the alternatives.
