Multi-Instrument Cases & Gig Bags
When it comes to instruments, like so many other things in life, two is better than one - and the more the merrier! Plenty of musicians have adapted their skills to more than one instrument, and if you're one of them, you'll certainly know firsthand how much of a chore it can be to carry all your gear to a gig or practice. The good news is there's a better way: multi instrument cases and gig bags. Designed to make it a cinch to transport multiple instruments at once, these cases and gig bags have what it takes to solve some of your tough logistical challenges. The result? Easier gigs with reduced prep time.
Blues and woodwind players are especially well-represented here, probably because the saxophone, flute and clarinet are some of the instruments most frequently packed together. For sax doubling, check out the Selmer Paris Light Alto and Soprano Saxophone Case, the Reunion Blues Leather Alto/Soprano Double Saxophone Bag, and the Protec Pro Pac Alto and Straight Soprano Saxophone Combination Case with Wheels. If you're a diverse player, consider the Protec TRI-PAC Case for Alto Sax, Clarinet and Flute to pack those three instruments together in style.
Maybe you'd prefer to have a better solution to carry your favorite cases, rather than a single multi instrument case or gig bag? If so, there are a few routes you can take. One would be to stack your cases on something like the Protec 2-Section Trolley With Telescoping Handle; it comes with built-in wheels that make it a snap to roll along. You could also try the Protec BP-STRAP Deluxe Backpack Strap to convert a standard case into a backpack one so you can load yourself up more efficiently.
However you choose to do it, transporting more than one instrument is no problem at all once you've geared up from this selection of multi instrument cases, gig bags and accessories. So feel free to diversify! It's one of the best ways to become an even better musician, and having even more tonal and stylistic choices at your fingertips is something every musician can appreciate.
