Instrument Cases

Bass Bags was started by Tony Morgan in 1983 in response to a demand for good quality yet affordable double bass cases.

To this day all of our cases are still made in Great Britain to the highest standards and made to last.

Our case range has grown from there to include stock cases for all string, woodwind, double reed, brass, electronic and early music instruments.

In addition to our stock cases we custom design and make cases for a wide variety of instrument makers who reqire their own design of case for their instruments. We also work with professional musicians who require special made to measure cases to meet their specific requirements, often with ease of travel in mind.

Instrument Hire

Bass Bags expanded into instrument hire in the 1990's having identified a need for better quality instruments in education at an affordable price.

We started with and specialise in cellos and double basses because that is what our founder Tony Morgan played and taught. However we were soon asked for woodwind and brass instruments on our same popular and flexible hire scheme.

We now offer a full range of instruments for hire and our hire scheme remains hugely popular.


We make a large range of accessories for many instruments.

All of our accessories have been designed in conjunction with professional musicians to ensure the best design.

We continue to work with musicians who want to develop their own range or type of accessories.

Stage & PA Hire

We have portable Q-Build staging available for hire which can be used as a choir riser with hand rails around the sides and the back for safety. We have a range of PA equipment for hire from a single microphone to a complete PA system. We can also deliver and set up the equipment for you.
