Re: WTB Original Bach leather gig bag

It’s a case cover. I think 744 was for the large tenors... Bach had a leather gig bag listed for a while, and my assumption had been that was what the OP was looking for. There are a couple of Bach "leather" bags at the following links, but they're not the brown style I'd seen in the old catalogs.....

SKB 360 is where it's at. Tiny, very sturdy, good on the horn.

Any gig bag is larger and doesn't protect at all.

Any really better hard case will be much larger and heavier.
