Custom Recorder Backpack… and it’s for sale!

Custom recorder backpack:
This was a big, involved custom order. The case portion of it is like a fatter version of the standard Dill Pickle recorder gig bag, but with an additional, removable set of slots in the middle. The “bag” portion of it is expandable and long enough to easily hold a bass in another case if you want. There’s an additional compartment on the back for a laptop or sheet music. It has ergonomic straps designed for a taller person, a sternum strap, an hip belt, and a padded handle, as well as numerous exterior pockets and compression straps. Basically, this bag has it all.
And actually, it is for sale! The customer who ordered it decided to go with a roller suitcase instead of a backpack. It is in pristine condition and has barely been used. If you’re interested, contact me and I’ll put you in touch!

A couple of boxy rando front bags

These were two different custom orders. The backs are angled to match the angle of Nitto front racks, so that the tongue of the rack can help support the bag without the need for an additional decaleur. The blue one was enormous! The green one is celery and navy, and you can see it on its matching Rivendell here.

They both have cuesheet windows on the top; for reference, the viewable area is about the same between the two of them, believe it or not.

Expandable backpacks

Jake was looking at a backpack kinda like this in EMS, so I made him one for his birthday. I borrowed it at one point and decided I liked it, so I made me one too. They are expandable via side zippers, plus two different compression straps on each side. also have laptop slots against the back accessible by a zipper on the side that doesn’t really show in the photos. I’ve found mine to be very comfortable to carry, even with a large load.

New jackets

This gallery contains 3 photos.

About eleven years ago, I made myself an Ultrex winter jacket with a Cordura yoke and 2″-wide strips of reflective tape. After wearing it every day all winter for eleven years, I decided it was time for a new one. So I made us matching jackets, from the same pattern as before. Here you can […]

Custom rack trunk bag

This one was from awhile ago. It has a sleeve for the “tongue” on the end of the rack, angled to match, with additional lash points on the lid and a strap to go around the saddle rails in case additional stability is required when it’s full. I particularly like the black and tan together.
