"Ahhh... the gig bag. There is so much junk out there that most don't even warrant a second glance. However, a few companies make some quality product. Enter 'Tough Traveler.' Made by hand in New York state, they have a whole line of top notch stuff from luggage to gig bags to baby carriers. I bought my first TT gig bag in 1986.... I bought my second one this week! For those of you who need help with math, that's 21 years! Ya. Best of all, each case comes equipped with a heavy-duty coat hanger that makes air travel a breeze.... Sweet!" -- Russell Mofsky, www.russellmofsky.com/live/

• Pockets for charts and contracts, plus zippered pockets for wallet, car keys, etc.
• Carry handle, a detachable shoulder strap, and a tough Cordura® outer shell.
• Also great for penny whistles, recorders & other small wind instruments.

"...I finally wore out my first 'Big Stick Bag' after 10 years of use on the road! I would endorse your products anytime!" - Derek Brown, Portland, OR

Price: $155.00
Color: Black/Yellow

"I just wanted to write a long overdue letter to express my sincere thanks for an amazing product. I bought my Big Stick Bag in 1990 and whether I was at home or on the road playing for 20 people or 20,000 my bag has been hanging right at my side. I recommend it to everyone I talk to and I am forever grateful to everyone at Tough Traveler."

Big Stick Bag for drummers

"I saw your company name somewhere and it served to remind me that I still don’t need to worry about my DrumSlinger stick bag - the one I bought in San Diego the third week of May ‘90: I got married that Saturday! The good (but not surprising) news is the marriage is great and the stick bag is apparently indestructible! 25 years down line and I may need to shop for the next stick bag in about 10 years; thanks for service above and beyond!!
Roger Hoinacki"

"For years I've went through tons of standard stick bags, most wore out within a year, or became unstitched quite quickly. It feels great to finally own a quality bag that won't wear out!
I can't wait to start gigging with it. I plan to add a cymbal bag very soon. Thanks for the great product and fast shipping!"
Rich Emslie

""I've been using my Tough Traveler stick bag all over the world for most of the last 20 years or so. I absolutely love it, and, aside from the zipper*, the bag is still in really good overall condition! ......I love the stick bag........................ I recommend your products everywhere I go..."
Ray Brinker, www.raybrinker.com

*20 yr. old zipper now fixed and Big Stick Bag back with Ray!
