This gig bag came with my Miraphone 188. I've disliked it so much I've stopped using it completely. It's way too big for the horn, and the backpack straps won't stay where I adjust them to. So not only does the horn flop around inside the case when I'm carrying it on my back, but the straps come loose and the whole bag starts swinging around. I'm currently looking for a replacement.
I bought this case when I originally purchased my horn. It fit my BAT very well and I had no struggles transporting my instrument in this case. I thought it was a great reliable case. The last time I used this case, I was on my way to a rehearsal I was carrying the case backpack style. I heard a slight ripping noise and a friend ran up behind me and grabbed my horn before it fell out of the bottom of the case. The zipper had failed and almost dropped my horn onto the floor. I will never buy a ProTec case again.
This gig bag came with my tuba, Miraphone 1291.It has now been replaced because of the following reasons:
The bag is clumsy in size, way to big for my tuba and most others. Also, when you are wearing it, the straps fall down quickly and the tuba tends to sag at about 30-45 degrees from vertical. The padding seems sufficient but it is not. The corners are NOT padded. I have brushed the corners twice (because of the sagging) and wound up with now 3 creases in my bell.
Also, where the strap are attached to bag are very close to failing completely. The bottom part of the strap, where attached to the tuba via a metal slide does not function correctly either. The rectangular metal slide always slips sideways and puts uneven pressure on the bag.
Last, the bag does not prevent the tuba from moving around. Basically, the tuba pushes the top of the gig bag out to where there is almost a half foot of empty room in the bag, leading to the horn moving around.
This is just a padded back with 3 straps and some pockets sewn on. This is not suitable to protect an investment like a tuba. Try Alteri, Reunion Blues, PT cases, or a hard case.
This is a very well thought out case, and seems to be well made, with good padding, straps, and fittings. There is a stiffener in the bell area, possibly wood. But you need to know the length of and distance around your tuba and the case, not just the bell diameter. I tried one for a new Jupiter 584, which is 39" tall (or long). The case is 46". It's not big enough around for a horn with front pistons - zipping up the case depresses the valves, and whatever you put in the larger outside pouch (a big heavy music folder, for instance) bears against the valve stems. With the case so much longer than the horn, when you put it on your back, the horn wants to slide down to the bottom, but the stiff and shaped bell area of the case holds it, suspended by its bell rim. That can't be a good thing. I don't think you'd want the bell area of the bag to be too much bigger than the bell if your horn - if your bell is 16", the 18" bag probably wouldn't hold it very securely. If you find one that fits your horn, it's a good deal.
This is about the only bag that will fit a conn 21j. Was using it for about 8 weeks. It was relatively comfortable, protected the finish, and had tons of room for the useless things tuba players carry around!! I used it "backpack" style all the time. One day i was carrying it to a lesson and the backpack strap broke. Flattened the rim of the bell about 1/2 of an inch. If your strap breaks, the case is strong enough that you can slide it "garbage can" style on the floor, and it will protect your tuba. Its kinda fun too!!! There's a reason they make hard cases. And thats what I'm back to using!! Protec needs to reinforce the lower attachment of the straps for this case to be effective.
