    Review of the Cronkhite Euphonium Bag and Comparison of Altieri Bag

    Now that I have my new leather Cronkhite bag, I did a full review with several photos. There is also a comparison of the Cronkhite bag to the Altieri bag:

    Good review, Dave. I too carried an Altieri for many years.

    I gave a real hard look at the leather Cronkhite, Altieri, and the Bonna.

    The Bonna won out, and I'm very pleased with it.

    We occasionally drink from the fountain of madness...

    Great info in your review Dave. I’ve a leather Cronkite that came with my Hirsbrunner, but have a two tone leather on order in cinnamon & black, should be quite nice looking. They are certainly extremely well made.
