What the player’s say…..

 “I just ordered a new brass bag(my third, actually) from you - this is just to let you know that i just love that bag, it's the most comfortable one on the planet. Thank you! ".

Ingolf Burkhardt - trumpet player with the NDR Radio Big Band in Hamburg, Germany
   “I wish the trumpets were as easy to play as they are to carry. With this bag I know my trumpets are safe. There is no easier way to carry 3 trumpets music and mutes".

Mark Calder - Philharmonia Orchestra
   “The soft case I use is perfect for what I need. It is strong, light and holds all my trumpets, mutes and music easily. The shoulder straps are an added bonus turning the case into a rucksack or it can be carried normally with the strong handle".

Jon Quirk - City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra
"Brass Bags' 4-trumpet case is a great bag- lightweight, protective, and compact enough for almost any airline overhead storage bin. I've had mine for 5 years and it has proved to be very durable."

Benjamin Wright -  Boston Symphony Orchestra
  "Thanks for the natural trumpet gig bag. I am very pleased with it, everything fits in perfectly.”

Bob Farley - Professor of Natural trumpet - Royal Academy of Music and Baroque trumpet soloist
  "I own the Quad and Natural Trumpet bags, and I've never had a bag that combined so much versatility with such a compact profile. My quad handles any combination of piston trumpets, German trumpets, mutes, and music that I throw at it. I use it everyday!"

Chris Martin - Principal trumpet - New York Philharmonic Orchestra
"All three students love the bags... everyone here wants one. What a simple idea and it works. I'll be in touch for 3 more soon."

Martin Rockall -  formerly of Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra
  "This bag is amazing, how do you manage to get so much into such a small space. I'll take one now!"

James Spragg - Toronto Symphony Orchestra
  I’ve flown several hundred thousand miles with my Brass Bags, from New York to San Francisco, Tokyo, and Rome and have never had a problem with plane overheads or damage. They are the lightest and easiest carrying cases imaginable. I use the Standard natural bag and the Double Bauguess model the most and love them.

  "These bags are the answer to my dreams. They're simple, light and above all, roomy enough to take all the trumpets that I need every day at work. Easily the best bags around.”

Wes Warren - City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra

 "I have had my leather triple gig bag for nearly 6 years now and it still looks like it's only a few days old. I feel my trumpets are well secure and protected" 

John Walsh - Trumpet soloist. Irish Chamber Ensemble – Dublin, Ireland
  "Brass Bags UK are SIMPLY the best cases around. They’re durable, slick, high quality, and most importantly, they protect your horns. I own the trumpet/flugelhorn double Brass Bag and have travelled around the country with it while on a national Broadway tour. It fits right in the overhead compartment with ease of any airlines with room to spare! Highly recommended and deserves two thumbs up!"

Joe Pino

Simon Gardner

"Finally I have found the gig bag that I have always been looking for! The Triple Trumpet Gig Bag for German rotary trumpets by Brass Bags is great in all aspects. My instruments are safe, there is space for everything and most importantly for me it is easy and comfortable to carry. Actually a must for every trumpet player."

Dominik Gaus
