"Protec Deluxe Trumpet Gig Bag"

when I saw it, i had a sneakin' suspicion that my soprano might just
fit inside this quality (Trumpet) gig bag... and it does, snugly, and
securely, but not too tightly.

Got it for $15, a bit more than I usually pay for bags at Goodwill, but
I did want to try it out, not only for the uke, but it has an extended
zippered side pouch for accessories :)

So, being a Trumpet gig bag, it is fairly compact, more cylindrical than
flat and contoured or rectangular. Sorry no pics, but just Google -
Protec Trumpet gig bags. I saw a retail price of about $65.

Anyway, I know many of you will not be tempted by this, but some
of you might actually have one around to use as a sturdy alternative
to a flimsier ukulele gig bag.

just a heads up... along the lines of using a tennis racket bag for
larger ukes :)

keep uke'in',

Congrats Uncle Rod!

That is a great find!

As per the Amazon listing (https://www.amazon.com/Protec-C238-Trumpet-Gig-Gold/dp/B0002D03ZC) it has 25mm of padding, which is really nice, especially at only $15...

Enjoy! :)

Be careful that the soprano does not tend towards Bb tuning after it has been in the bag.

ha ha! I see what you did there! :) Good one!
