I recently purchased a new tuba and got a hard case and gig bag to go with it. Without identifying the store from which I bought the gig bag, I'm quite disappointed with the quality of the bag...it's falling apart after only 8 months. Yesterday the shoulder strap broke while I was carrying it and I was lucky that I didn't drop the tuba and dent it. I believe this particular gig bag to be unique to the store at which I bought the tuba.
It looks like I'm going to need a bag that's more durable. How long have your gig bags lasted? What brands are noted for their 'toughness'?
