Reunion Blues G series gig bag question

Post by fsgazda » Thu Jun 03, 2021 2:36 pm

OK, maybe an odd question here. I have a G series reunion blues bag that came with a tenor trombone that I bought. This is the one with the internal slide pocket that is not attached to anything. Do you put the slide pocket so that it is on the outside when the bag is on your back, or do you place it so that it is up against your back?

RB made these two ways.

1. With a single BP strap on one of the SIDES of the bag. In that case, I would keep the slide insert away from your back.
2. With regular double BP straps on the BOTTOM of the bag. In that case, I would let your valve levers decide. Which ever seems better for keeping slide and levers apart from each other.

Thanks. I have the single strap. That's what I was thinking, but wasn't sure because of the valve lever.
