A favorite among musicians playing other instruments now available for baritone horn.
Gard Bags have a reputation of providing quality protection at a reasonable price, and the Mid-Bag Suspension series builds upon this reputation. In ordinary bags, the baritone rests tightly against the bag's side. If dropped, the protruding parts are likely to be dented. Using strategically placed blocks of padding the Mid-Bag Suspension series "suspends" your baritone horn away from the sides. Further stabilizing the instrument is a dense foam cone mounted on a hard disc on the inside of the case. This suspension system reduces the risk of dings or dents if the bag knocks into a wall or is dropped from a short distance. Like all Gard Bags, the Mid-Bag Suspension series features a water resistant nylon or buffalo leather exterior, rugged zippers, soft interior flap to protect the instrument from the zipper, backpack straps, and shoulder strap. Fits baritones with up to a 9.5-inch bell.

Comments about Gard Mid-Suspension Baritone Horn Gig Bag:
I was a little nervous about ordering a gig bag for a British baritone, but the measurements suggested this was the right bag to get, and I was not disappointed. It's a bit of a squeeze to get the horn in due to the length of the zipper (should be designed to zip around the bag further), but once it's in, the horn is well padded. Note that a regular American designed baritone will not fit in this bag. It is strictly for the British style baritone played in brass bands.
I appreciated the covered snaps on the straps since I've had issues with the snaps on another bag digging into my back. However, the bag is designed for the same over-the-shoulder strap to double as backpack straps. The problem is that the strap goes through a loop at the top of the bag and connects to metal rings at the bottom. This makes it difficult to put the bag on as a backpack since the strap slips through the loop to leave no slack to get your opposite arm in. The good thing is that the horn and bag together is light enough to carry over the shoulder with no problem.
