Taschen für Lautenleiern

For Lute-back hurdy-gurdies
we offer 3 types of gig bags:

- the “simply padded”

- the 7-sided

- the 8-sided

the “simply padded” (the one in front)

The name is the concept: this gig bag is padded all around. It is light and ideal in all places where you need a rather light protection for your instrument. The gig bag is made - as all our gig bags - from a solid fabric like it is used for backpacks. It has an outside pocket for accessories like cotton or rosin. For transport it has a shoulder strap as well as a handle..

einfache und 8-seitige Tasche
die 7- und die 8-Seitige

the 7- & the 8-sided

The idea is simple: long pieces of plastic with upholstery foam on the inner side suround your instrument and give structure to this gig-bag. These segments, linked by the fabric of the bag, are flexible enough to follow the form of your instrument and to create the space it needs - and they are hard enough to protect it at the same time. Using the bag as a backpack the gurdy is transported “head-down”, so there will never be any pressure on the crank. and the axle. And there´s a place for accessories as well: we´ve placed a removable inside bag in the top of the gig bag giving enough space for cotton, rosin etc.

8- & 7-Seitige offen

The difference between the two models is the number of segments: the 7-sided is the choice for lute-backs with a smaller belly for example like the newer models of Kurt Reichmann. The 8-sided is the right one for the bigger lute backs like the traditional French ones. Both models have the removable inside pocket, a handle and backpack-straps that can be used as shoulder straps as well.

Lautenleier Vermessung

Like hurdy-gurdies - gig bags for hurdy-gurdies are something quite special and unique. With an order we need the following measurements:

* the maximum girth of your hurdy-gurdy (usually over the wheel protection)
* the length from the head to the wheel
* the complete length incl-crank and knob

With these measurements we can assist you in finding the best fitting option for your instrument. 7-sided and 8-sided as well as “simply padded” bags in standard sizes are usually in stock - often also in different lengths. And if we can´t find the right gig-bag to fit your belongings we´re happy to order it for you!
