Hi all! Hope you are well - been a while since I posted - very busy year (graduated from uni, moved house, started first teaching job and became a father all between June and August!)

Anyway - I'm looking for a quality gig bag for my kala ubass - but being in the UK my opportunity to try out cases is limited. Has anyone come across a quality gig bag for baritone that fits?

I want to avoid foam cases and the kala hardshell case if possible - more looking for a reunion blues type case.

Thanks in advance for any advice,

Aloha from Glasgow

Bump - really need to sort a case out...... Anyone?

Is the kala hard case my only option?

Basically. The case that comes with the U-Bass isn't that bad; I found it a lot nicer than most entry and mid-level cases. For me, I'd go hardcase if I was to replace my U-Bass bag.

Hey monkey - thanks for the response - the problem is I never got a case with mine when I bought it. Kala don't seem to have replacements on their website - looks like the hard case is the only option.

My U-Bass fits nicely in a Fusion baritone gig bag.

Hi Sailing Uke - thanks for the heads up. What model ubass do you have? Does it have the hipshot tuners? I think they are usually the problem because of how far they stick out.

It does, but the OP did not get one. Maybe he bought it used? Maybe it's one of the very first, and they didn't come with a bag?

Yup bought new, one of first in the UK and never got a gig bag. The shop gave me a baritone pod case that never really fit properly and has since lost the handle - hence requirement for new case.

My U-Bass is a few years old and does have the hipshot tuners.
I sometimes use a Fusion bag, because it has great storage pockets.
