New gig bag
Recently I celebrated my 30th birthday, in addition to the alcohol and chocolates i was gifted, my wife bought me a new wheels triple by Gardbags.
So far I have been really impressed with this gig bag. It's light weight, durable offers a lot of protection to for my horns, has a huge expanding storage pocket, ID tag, backpack straps (for when you can't wheel it), and obviously its on wheels. I'm pretty certain you can purchase several accessories too but I haven't really looked into them.
Being on wheels means I'm protecting my body as well as my horns. With my previous gig bag that I used as a backpack I was getting a lot of tension in my upper body from carrying my trumpets everywhere. Now I'm wheeling my horns around I have noticed that tension has drastically reduced and my playing has improved because of it.
Whilst this blog might sound like I'm on the payroll for Gard bags I can assure you with artists such as Jens Lindemann, Wayne Bergeron and Rashawn Ross all endorsing them why would the pay me?
If you're looking for a new gig bag or trumpet case I'd strongly recommend the triple wheely by gardbags I have fallen in love that quickly.
