This backpack accordion case is much handier than the old style suitcase my used accordion came with. The price for this case was great and it offers enough protection for my occasional short-haul gigging (2-3 times per month). However it would not offer enough protection were I to pack this into a van full of equipment and jostle it around. Also my old suitcase was too big to bring as a plane carry on and this backpack is just small enough to work - that is a big plus. I have added some extra foam padding inside on the bottom and top, over the keys. So for the money it was a bargain.

I needed a case for a 72 bass accordion. I ordered the AB-1. The accordion fit in the case perfectly, but it wouldn't zip. So, I exchanged it for the AB-3. The case I received is not what was described or pictured. The dimensions of the case I received was 21" x 20" x 11". The dimensions listed in the specifications are 18" X 9" x 16.5". Also, the case is pictured as having a carry handle. The description says "Heavy duty carry handle." The case I received has no carry handle, only back-pack straps. It's possible I was sent the wrong case, but it does not match the dimensions of the AB-5, the next size up. Most likely, the manufacturer changed the specifications of the case without informing Musicians' Friend. If the dimensions of the case are ok for you, and you don't need a carry handle, this case is fine. But it just won't work for me.

    Perfect for my mid-size 120-bass accordion. I initially purchased the next larger size, but was much too big. This is the perfect size to carry a mid-size accordion on a flight.

          Comments about SofiaMari AB-3 Accordion Backpack/Bag:

          I was careful to order the size that seemed to fit my Roland FR-1's dimensions and found that the middle size is slightly too roomy. Since it will rarely leave the floor of my music room to be transported, that won't be a problem. Sturdy padded construction, good zippers.

            I order this bag for my husband for his birthday
            and the salesmen was very helpful above and beyond
            usual help. I ordered it for his Roland FR-18 but he can use it for all of his accordions including, his 120base excelsor piano accordion.

            Thank you again for all the help

            Comments about SofiaMari AB-3 Accordion Backpack/Bag:

            Bought this as a replacement for a vintage case that completely fell apart over time. I haven't used it to transport yet, but think it will do fine. The trick is getting the right fit since there are different sizes of these bags so be sure to measure before ordering.

            • Carrying Tofrom Lessons

            Comments about SofiaMari AB-3 Accordion Backpack/Bag:

            I am not happy with the way the top flap bends outward when you pick up the case (with accordion inside) by the handle. I do not need or want to use the backpack straps on this. The zipper seems to hang or stick a lot, making it difficult to open and close this bag. I would return this but it would cost me more to return than to just keep it. The box was severely damaged in shipping and cannot be reused. I would have to buy another box, drive 20+ miles to drop off at FedEx, plus pay return shipping and original shipping. Not worth the effort. It will become another dust collector in my house.

            This accordion bag fit the measurements given online, is well-made and durable, and helped me carry my accordion on my recent airline trip. It fit easily in the overhead compartment and provided convenient extra pockets.

              This will save me a lot of agony shlubbing my accordion from my car to my gig. It's 6 lbs lighter than my case, and backpacking it rather than carrying it by hand is a lot easier.

                Good news!... This accordion bag will fit a full range of 72/60 bass, 34 treble key accordions from Sofia Mari, Rosetti, Bonetti, Parrot, etc. And it will do it well, and with style... As good as the Hohner bag at half the price... Recommended... (m.)ps: always measure your instrument first before ordering ANY bag or case!The inside dimensions of this bag are: (W x D x H): 18" x 9" x 16.5"
