I was wondering what is a good option for a gig bag that can hold a trumpet, flugelhorn, and has lots of extra room for other accessories and mutes.

I have a couple of three horn gig bags, a ProTec and a Reunion Blues, that can accommodate a Bb trumpet, fluglehorn (Getzen 4 valve) and all the mutes most of us have. And the ProTec has outside pockets for mouth pieces music etc. More than I want to carry!

Check out Messina Covers if you want a higher quality gig bag that can be customized (to a certain degree) to your needs:

If you want to carry all that in one bag, I've got a can of spinach I'll sell you.

Protec, Gard, Bonna, Reunion Blues, Cronkhite are a few reasonably good choices.

I currently have one of these: https://www.brassbags.co.uk/Store/Premier-Flugel-Trumpet-Gig-Bag-p252472464

If you’re accident prone, Protec, Bags of Spain and Raw Brass make hard shell cases.

There are other options as well. Google is your friend.

I've got one in leather and I just bought one for my son in nylon. These cases hold a ton of extra gear.

Been using my Fusion triple bag for close to 10 years. It’s the only bag I use and it holds everything I need for orchestra or big band. Very comfortable to carry and I use it also when biking to a rehearsal or gig.

I have the old version with the grey and black rather than the colors.

I have a Cronkhite Trumpet Triple "Super" (https://reverb.com/item/40144980-trumpet-gig-bag-super-triple-trumpet-cordura-glenn-cronkhite) functions and looks great.

Brassnose - I just got a super good deal on a used fusion triple. The bag is great - feels more protective than the gard and reunion blues ones that i was looking at and with the back straps super versatile.

I second this recommendation. It holds 3 trumpets including with a flugel or 2 plus a bunch of extra space for stuff.

Add me to the list. I have used this case for YEARS without any damage to horns. Several years ago I upgraded to this newer version and I really like the straps on the lid, they hold my stand light. It can get heavy with three horns in it so I do not use the mute bag, I have a different Protec one that I carry separately. Another feature I like is that because it is top loading, I can put this under my chair and pull out a horn when I need it.

Gard makes some really good bags.

I have a Gard 9-MSK, a.k.a the Doublers Trumpet/Flugel bag. When I bought it new four years ago it seemed a little too snug, and I only gave it a 3-star review, but as I've used it I've grown to appreciate it more and it's held up very well--the workmanship is outstanding. The more I've used it, the better the memory foam has adjusted for my horns and they fit much better now. I usually don't carry two full-sized trumpets in it--I usually carry a flugel, Bb trumpet, and piccolo or short model cornet, though if you're just carrying a trumpet and flugel it leaves lots of room for mutes and stuff (see the first video link below).

It's a very good bag for the price. WWBW.com has it for $146.00, at least fifty bucks less than the nearest competing bag. You can get it from them in leather for around $200 and some change. Gard has other bags available as well for a little more money, including the triple that Jens Lindemann somehow crams five horns into (see the 2nd YouTube link below).

A lot of it depends on what you really want and what you really need.

Years ago I splurged and bought an all-leather Reunion Blues triple trumpet gig bag. Gorgeous bag. I used it a lot.

When I bought my Kanstul flugel from PiCK Music in York, PA, they threw in a ProTec trumpet/flugel combo case. It's a large case - the flugel lays on its side and the trumpet sits vertically on the valve bottoms. With that said, was a semi-hard case - nylon wrapped plywood. It also had a huge side pocket that was big enough to fit all kinds of accessories and goodies in addition to a 1" 3 ring binder. The only downside is that it doesn't have room for mutes, but I always had an accessory bag for mutes, stands, and anything else that wouldn't fit in the case.

I liked that case so well I sold the Reunion Blues bag because it had spent a couple of years just sitting on the shelf unused.

When I sold the Kanstul flugel, I sold the ProTec case with it, so when I started gigging again and needed a new case, ultimately I ended up getting the same ProTec case I had before.

To me, it's great protection for no more than it costs, and it will protect better than any soft sided case. I once accidentally dropped that case on a stairwell where it tumbled to the bottom. Everything inside was fine. Try that with a soft case.

Amazon Choice for $139.

@Kumara: Heather, great to hear that! I bought mine when I joined a soul/pop band in 2014 or so and needed at least one hand to hold on to some place in crowded subways. I never have more than two instruments in it and use the rest of the space for music, mutes, lights, etc.

I was thinking about upgrading to the nice colored one but then decided only wanting to change color and selling an otherwise perfect bag is a little silly I may however sell my Schagerl double trumpet bag I bought for the rotary. It’s a great case, too, but I just find myself using the Fusion all the time.

Hope you are doing good,
Andreas
