Cronkhite Gig Bags

Cronkhite gig bags are considered to be some of the highest quality gig bags produced today. There are more than 70 patterns for tuba gig bags. These bags are available in leather as well as cordura. There are a variety of colors available in both materials. These bags are now produced by Torpedo Bags of Minneapolis, MN. Torpedo Bags has not only maintained the standard set by Glenn Cronkhite, but they have exceeded the quality standards. With a new high-tech cutting table from Germany, their output has increased significantly over the past year, but they are still struggling to keep up with demand. Better than ever, these bags now come with a separate protective zippered pouch inside the original side pouch of the bag. These bags are priced based on which material is selected and the size of the bag.
