Upright Bass Bag – 7/8 extra long


These are the original Glenn Cronkhite-designed upright (double) bass bags. Some of the original bags are still in use today! Made in the USA using only the finest “Top Grain” leathers and durable 1000D genuine Cordura fabrics, you can be assured that your bass is well protected in a well made bag.

SKU: U 7/8 B-1.5 Categories: ,


The best upright bass gig bag is a Cronkhite 7/8 bass bag. Over-engineered handles built to survive the weight of lifting the bag into your car over and over and over, and will heavy duty zippers and steel rivets over double-layered leather patches, this is the bag you’ll wish you had when the cheaper one rips on a tour. There is no upright bass bag that comes close to walking as far as ours.

NOTE: Most Cronkhite orders are cut and sewn after the order is made. If you need a rush, be sure to check with us first.
