Glenn Cronkhite Tuba Gig Bags are the most respected and imitated gig bags on the planet. But be careful! Only the ones made by Glenn Cronkhite will survive decades of daily use, and only Glenn Cronkhite took the time to fit 180+ specific tuba models into 90 unique patterns.

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

There are small number of tubas in the world that aren’t yet matched to a pattern. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t find one that works if we know its dimensions. If your tuba doesn’t show up in the pulldown menus above, please carefully fill out this form and email it to sales@glenncronkhite.com : Tuba Measurement Tool

  • Our nylons are US-made genuine Cordura, which is one of the most durable fabrics ever invented. Its abrasive strength is unmatched, and is almost always considered “Military Spec”. We chose this material because the others just aren’t good enough.


  • These can vary, but the nylon bags are about 8-9 pounds (4 kilos), and the leather bags come in around 14-16 pounds (7 kilos).
