Episode 142 - Cases and Gig Bags
Gig bags! What?!! Are you insane? Or maybe you have a "death wish" for your instrumen? In this episode I while away an hour talking about the 8 different types of instrument cases and gig bags and give you my two-cents worth on each. I also toss in some opinions on cats in the house. No offense, cat lovers. I have two cats myself, Yin and Yang.
That photo in the show graphic above is of an very nice Eastman 815, which had a perfectly good hard shell case when I sold it to a student of mine. He tossed the good case, shoved it in a super hip gig bag, crashed his bicycle after a gig and... well... bashed a gaping hole through the bass side f hole. That should tell you what I think of gig bags. Have fun!
There is still time to get Jackson's Christmas Songs for Mandolin eBook. You can get it here. Trust me, when Aunt Sally comes to visit this Christmas she doesn't want to hear you play Salt Creek! She wants to hear some Christmas tunes!
