Just a quick question. As I live in the middle of nowhere and the nearest shop that stocks gigbags for tubas is literally hundreds of miles away, I am looking to buy one over the web. I was looking at the ritter one which looks ok for the price. (typical tight Aberdonian!) I know that the bach one would be better, but it is also mush more expensive. The point of it is purely to carry the tuba from the house to the car and then from the car to the band hall. (a total of 15m tops! I do not intend carrying it arround on trains, busses or having it on my back on a bike ) - so it is purely to protect it in the car from scratching. I could just take the case, but it is bulky and I do not want to ruin the seats of my new car. There is a child seat in the back of the car so I am hoping to put it in the boot. I play a EEb and was advised that the EEb version does fit the sovereign even though it says that it is 18 inches. Is this the case? Thanks for all advice. ttfn Andrew.
