I have an older Reunion Blues fabric gig bag and wish I could find another one. I am bummed that RB no longer makes a case specifically for open back banjo

Can anyone recommend an equivalent padded gig bag for an 11" open back? Seems most companies only have one 14" banjo bag.

thanks, Tom

The Boulder Apline is pretty nice. I have one of those as well as a couple of the Superior bags. Though of the two, the former seems to be a bit stiffer. The Superior 11" comes in a full length as well as a pony/tenor size. Bob Smakula carries both of them, too.  

The Alpines come in blue, green, and tan.

- I second the recommendation for the Alpine bag.

- Very pleased with mine. It has stood the test of time.

I bought a Gator case (I know, not a gig bag) for my Deering Americana and I really like it. Not as big and heavy as a full size case, but has a lot more protection than just a gig bag. The one linked below is what fit my Openback, but you may need a smaller size... not sure. It has a nice little indent for the open back that holds it nicely.

I have 2 and just ordered a 3rd, so I guess I'm happy with them.

I got a really nice gig-bag with my Pisgah. Looks like it is made by "Access". Not sure where you get one, but the guys at Pisgah would know.

I have had a Boulder bag for about 10 years, it still is in good shape, and I like the 3 zippered pockets for storage. The Boulder bag replaced a Superior bag that was coming apart at the seams after 6 years. I got a second Boulder bag a few years ago with a new banjo. I use these bags a lot and have no reservations about carrying them to a gig or jam.

I got the Rockbag by Warwick off Amazon 3 or 4 years ago and my open back RK fits in snugly and securely. The cost was around 65-70 bucks I think. I don't see it listed on Amazon anymore so I don't know right off where you can get one.
