OVERVIEW

A lightweight bass case delivering heavyweight protection.

The Mono M80 bass case is among the lightest, thinnest, strongest, most versatile carrying solutions for the professional bassist. It's a hybrid case featuring an ultra light laminated foam shell with strategically placed ABS panels, providing an unmatched level of protection for your most prized investments. Smart features like the Clip/Tuck straps make for easy airport travel, while the streamlined profile helps you slip through the crowds. It fits standard bass guitars from Fender, Ibanez, Warwick, Tobias, and Yamaha to name a few.

Inside the Mono case, the patented neckbrace design suspends the bass guitar's headstock, protecting it from impacts that could otherwise snap the neck. An oversized velcro strap quickly secures the neck against a specialized high-density foam block, which also keeps the tuning pegs away from the sides of the case during transport. On the bottom of the case the bass's strap pin is protected by a bumper system of high-density foam, industrial rubber and ABS "feet," diverting impact up and around the body of the electric bass on vertical drops.

Constructed with high-tech materials and triple reinforced stitching this bass case is extremely durable. The M80 bass guitar case features a waterproof outer shell, steel riveted handle and shoulder straps, industrial rubber "sole" and piping, and oversized ergonomic zippers. Wear it well.

Comments about MONO M80 Electric Bass Case:

I've had my M80 bass bag since September 2012. It has been the best bag I have ever owned. It is very light, and really protects your instrument exceptionally well. I had my bass fall a few feet off a drum riser. I freaked out! But when I removed my trusty G&L L2500 from the gigbag, not only was it unharmed, it was still in tune! So the reason I want to update my original review on this same site is, I want to tell everyone about how good the company that makes the bag is. I had some sticthing come lose inside the bag that attaches the protective liner inside the case, for the bridge. Some how my bass snagged the stictching and started to tear it off. Also, inside the main pocket for accessories, some fabric had begun to shread and the inner flap looked like it might eventually rip way. Neither of these defects effected the primary function of protecting the instrument. I have used the bag extensively, and crammed lots of cables, stomp boxes books, etc in the compartment, many many times. I took pictures of the bag and emailed them to Mono's coustomer service link. Jen,in coustomer service, responded to me right away, and in a few days, they sent me a brand spanking new bag to replace my old one... no charge. They paid for all the shipping including the return of the defective gigbag. I noted in a email to Jen, that I would like to see them increase the length of the back pack straps. She sent me some custom made extensions immediately! No Charge for those either, again. This company has very high standards, and obviously is "aiming high". The coustomer service goes beyond adequate, by a measure that no other manufacturers can even come close. It was as though I had a relative working for the company! I give them 10 stars! Their product is the best I have ever owned, and when I used it hard and damaged it, "they stepped up". This is a company you want to do business with. I would like to own stock in them!

    Comments about MONO M80 Electric Bass Case:

    Wow - if you want the best gig bag you can find, buy this.Ouch - [$]? Really?Issues: Wish the straps were anchored a little higher so the top of the bass doesn't stick up so much. Also wish the zippers had those little lock loops like some luggage zippers have so a travel lock would keep the riffraff out. Other than that, it's quite an investment but worth it if you travel a lot with a decent bass.

    What a bag!!!

    By Bassist JP

    from Texas.

    Comments about MONO M80 Electric Bass Case:

    I bought this bag after many other bags had failed, and I am nothing short of impressed. The protection that this case offers is absolutely amazing. I have dropped, slid and knocked over this case so many time I have lost count and not on rip or tear. And my Smith 6 comes out just as it went in every time. The biggest test that its had was falling off of the loading belt on a 747. Fell all the way to the ground. Granted i did have it in a skb flight shell that this bag fits perfectly in. When I arrived on the ship I wasn't even out of tune. I was astounded. The only complaint is the trim and the bottom of the outside is not a sturdy matirial. Its not structural and purely for looks but its is cracking and peeling off.

    The best gig bag you can get.

    By Stuart-NtTyD

    from Tallahassee, FL

    See all my reviews

    Comments about MONO M80 Electric Bass Case:

    This gig bag is the best I have seen. I only rated it 4 for Features because it really needs a sleeve or something to hold a Genesis Ultimate GS-100 stand and then it would be just about perfect. Although another pocket on the front wouldn't hurt. As it is, it will hold my bass, a strap, my Sansamp BDDI, Tascam Bass Trainer, and all the cables I need to use those things. But, if it had another pocket, so I could fit one of the new generation of micro-sized amp heads, then it truly would be perfect. I'd like to fit my Promethean head in it, too, so then I could carry the gig bag, a 210 cabinet, and go play a gig, with just those two things to take.I rated the Value down because I think it really is over the top expensive for what it is. It's more than a G&G Tolex hardshell case. Since it won't hold EVERYTHING I need to gig with, the Value just isn't there. I'm starting to think I may as well carry my bass in the tolex HSC and put an amp and gadgets and cables in a bag or backpack. The bass would be better protected and I would still be able to carry everything just as easily.

    You get what you pay for

    from IL

    Comments about MONO M80 Electric Bass Case:

    I'll never buy another bass case unless I do international tours and feel I need an ATA flight case. It looks great, functions perfectly, and is worth your investment in it. It's really an investment in your instrument collection and your livelyhood (if you have to play a functioning instrument for money, that is).
    The pocket is large enough to hold a small binder or sheet of music, as well as a couple cables and your misc stuff. There's also the pocket over the headstock for a screwdriver or pencils, and safe place to store your wallet or phone during a performace if you need to. The backpack-style straps are super-comfortable for me. Fits my 4 all the way up to my 7 string.
    I've only had it for a few about 6 weeks, but it has held up supurbly through 4 domestic flights and numerous car trips. It fits into double overhead stowage on flights, and it also gate-checks very well if they run out of room. Interior is wood and finish-friendly. "MONO" metal logo on the front of the case pocket will get scratched if you transport other gear against the case.
    How much have you spent on gig bags and cases in your lifetime thus far that you no longer use, or don't trust on a plane or in a van with other gear? For me, that's way over this price. This one case will last you the rest of your life unless you routinely stack your PA subs on top of it. It gives you the protection you need with the transportability and low wieght of a 'soft' case.

    A Must Buy For Serious Traveling Bassists!

    By Chase Kealey

    from Philly/Harrisburg

    Comments about MONO M80 Electric Bass Case:

    I highly recommend these to any player that is out in the weather. I tried numerous other gig bags and hard cases, but none of them compare to these guys. I've had this particular case for over a year now and it looks just like the day I got it, even after being stuck in a blizzard for a few hours, running across campus countless times during torrential down pours, and being tossed around in a van on tour. I will definately be purchasing more of these in the future for my other basses!
    These are fantastic bags! It may be a bit nit picky, but I wish the front pouch was a tad bit larger so i didnt need an additional bag for my rh450. Other than that all my cables, heaphones, books, and accessories fit really well and are protected.
    I've been stuck in the literally, rain, sleet, and snow with no damage done to the bag, but most importanly my basses they housed. I truly can not recomend these enough!
    They are a bit on the expensive side, but I dont worry about damaging my basses in transit anymore. Really great cases!

        This product covers all the basics and then some. Note it is a soft case but that being said this case really holds your guitar/bass nicely. It holds the neck extremely well unlike other soft cases. That is very important because if your instrument falls over in the case and DOES NOT have the neck secured more damage could be experienced.
        This case also rides nicely when using the shoulder straps. NO banging the head stock going through doors etc.
        It is worth the price!

        Comments about MONO M80 Electric Bass Case:

        The Mono bass bag is the best bass gig bag I have ever owned. If you can swing the price you're going to like the combination of Protection, it's light weight, it's stylish appearance, it's thoughtfully designed accessory compartments, and the comfort built into the handle and back pack straps. My bass doesn't shift around inside, because of the neck strap. The padding is semi-rigid, yet soft enough inside to protect the finish of the bass. This is the first soft case I've owned that lets my bass stay intune. Everything about the case is built for durability, outstanding protection, and function.
        I'm a big guy and some gig bags I've had came with back pack straps way too short for me; not this one. I work a lot and carry my bass for quite a distance everyday. I end up in a crowded area and have to get through with my bass. The light weight and comfortable, solidly attached handle make it easy to carry, even in a croud.
        I've worn out several gig bags over the last 10 years. (since I bought my G&L L2500, That's my work bass.)Before my Mono gig bag arrived, I had "borrowed" a Protec semi soft gig bag that I had purchased for another bass of mine. The Protec is a GREAT gig bag too. In most ways it is equal to the Mono bag. But the Mono case is much lighter and easier to manuver IMHO. I'm really diggin' the Mono bag, and would highly recommend it.

        Amazing case

        from Alabama

        See all my reviews

        Comments about MONO M80 Electric Bass Case:

        Amazing bag, sturdy, well constructed, water resistant. If Victor Wooten trust this bag enought to carry around his $6000 Fodera, it's good enough for me. Other than the bass I carry in it, this was without a doubt the best investment yet.
        Ample pocket space between the hidden pocket and the front panel pocket. I really like the pick storage area on the velcro strap.
        The moment you pick it up out of the box, you can feel the quality and attention to detail. The side handle seems more sturdy than the handle on my truck. The zippers are equally as sturdy. Nothing feels half done or that there were any corners cut during construction. I hope the people in the factory take pride in their work. They should.
        This bags expensive to the middle of the road player, I understand that. If you have invested any money in your bass, take pride in its appearance, and are concerned about maintaining it from damage, I would strongly recommend this bag. It is worth every penny and you won't need to lug around that bulky hardshell anymore.

        Great case! A worthy purchase!

        By Joshua West

        from Michigan

        Comments about MONO M80 Electric Bass Case:

        It does what is says and more. It fits my 5 string Ibanez with space to spare. Pockets and pockets with pockets inside of them. Great case!
        All the features make this a very complete case. The pockets have nice places for pens and and I can keep my instrument cable wound up with the built strap in the front pocket.
        The craftsmanship is perfect. I can tell already that this case will last me a very long time.
        Kind of expensive, but how much would you pay to keep your guitar safe on the road? It gives ample protection, and definitely more manuverable than a hardshell case. The "head-lock" is a nice feature and even includes a pocket for picks or slides.

        I can't stop raving about this product! A must-buy if you value the safety of your instrument.
        The MONO case has 2 ample compartments for all your tools, cords, tuner and even an iPad! The backpack straps are very handy when lugging a bass cabinet and amp in each hand. And the case looks futuristic as well!!
        This is my third MONO case (bass model). I also have one for a single electric guitar and a dual (double) electric guitar case for gigging! The material and construction are the best I've seen! I never worry about accidental drops anymore. These cases are sturdy all around!
        I don't see myself EVER having to replace any of these! My friends are also taking notice of the MONO case and are looking to purchase one for their instruments!

          Comments about MONO M80 Electric Bass Case:

          I very often have to carry my bass as a backpack,so immediately upon receiving this gigbag,I checked out the length of the backstraps,which turned out to be much too short -- especially for use while wearing an overcoat in colder weather. I then contacted Mono,the manufacturer,to find out about obtaining extension straps,but they could not help me. In addition to the too short straps (which was really "the decider"),there weren't enough storage compartments (space). So unfortunately,for those reasons,I had to return this otherwise,excellent gigbag. If Mono addressed those two deficiencies,they would have a truly outstanding product. (Yes I would recommend this gigbag to a friend,but I would aprise them of what are shortcomings to me)

                      Comments about MONO M80 Electric Bass Case:

                      Gig bags have gotten to be too generic in the past few years. They are made as one size fits all and your guitar fits too loosely in them. They also don't last as long. I decided it was time to go ahead and pay a little extra for a good one. This one advertised nice features and some of them are unique. The headlock, keychain hook, chord strap, cutout for guitar strap hook, waterproof sharkskin and other features that come in handy (especially the strong padding).
                      A couple of things I wasn't as happy about is the height and not as much storage as I would like. But storage is a common problem when you switch to a new bag. Even though it is too tall, it will still lay flat on the back seat of my Explorer. And because of the Headlock at the top and the cutout at the bottom, my bass does not flop around inside. Good item.

                          I had my doubts about this case from looking at the videos and pictures. The sides seemed like they'd be all floppy, I didn't know what to make of the neck holder thing, and I thought the price was too high. I figured all the rave reviews couldn't all be wrong so I pulled the trigger and got one. My doubts all disappeared when I got my hands on this thing. I was wrong on all counts. This is the best soft case I've ever owned and well worth the price! Once the neck is locked down and it's zipped up, it provides as much protection as my hardshell case. All of the parts where gig bags normally fail (handle, backpack straps, etc) are all solid and riveted. It's an amazing product. In fact, I'm online today to order a double model for my guitars.

                            Comments about MONO M80 Electric Bass Case:

                            In and out of the back seat, on and off stage, this case protects my instrument. Being able to secure the neck of my bass and the padding at the bottom is worth the money! Had a Schecter Riot Session bass as my backup and it got damaged in another gig bag by just sitting it down to hard on the floor. One more plus to me is that my bass holds its tuning better by being in the Mono. Just a great compliment to my instrument.
