Your horn is safely suspended in mid air inside the bag.
With the Gard European Model Leather Soprano Saxophone Gig Bag the instrument is "suspended" inside to drastically reduce the chances of damage during impact. The belts and cone used for the suspension have velcro fastners and can be adjusted according to the instrument.
In ordinary bags, the delicate protruding parts of the musical instrument touch the bottom and sides of the gig bag. In the event of an accidental impact the delicate protruding parts are liable to be damaged. In the mid bag suspension system, the music instrument is held by the more robust parts of the musical instrument (leaving the delicate parts suspended in mid air). This is achieved using flexible belts, and a foam cone that holds the bell. As a result, 9 out of 10 times, the music instrument will escape damage when dropped.
