    Will do, and if there is extra room within the bag, there's always the option of cutting and fitting some fishnet-covered foam rubber inside the bag, using velcro to keep same in place.

    I'm afraid Cronkhite is just too expensive. I bought a new Cronkhite bag for my Kanstul 33-T tuba about 10 years ago (back when Glenn still owned the business -- and he had to make up a new template...

    I'd love to respond that I'm currently playing with a brass band, but that is not the case.

    I started out in Germany in the mid-80s and played in several pickup SA groups. More fun than music,...
