My bag

What I carry in my bag

My bass case

My bass case is a Mooradian Deluxe, which is now discontinued. People seem to like Messina bags as an alternative.

I also use the Gaines Bass Wheel, which has lasted through years of heavy abuse.

What’s in my bass case

My bow case

I have a double case from Lemur Music (discontinued).

These double bow cases from the String Emporium are good options.
