Cases & Gig Bags

The biggest and best range of guitar cases in Australia

When you imagine musos wrapping up after a gig, you might imagine roadies lugging massive amps back to the van, gathering cables and leads, and cleaning up after the band. What most people miss are the heroes of the actual instruments — the gig bags. To move guitars, drum kits and orchestral instruments safely, music bags and hard cases are absolutely essential. 

Whether you’re busking, performing in live venues or travelling with an instrument to band practice and lessons, you need a music case to keep your gear in good condition.

Here at Musos Corner, we’ve got one of the biggest and best collections of gig bags and guitar cases in Australia — from acoustic, electric and bass guitar cases to keyboard cases, speaker cases and bags, ukulele cases and so much more, we have all the protective gear you need to get your instruments from point A to B safely. 

Find the ideal case or gig bag for your instrument online or in-store with Musos Corner! We offer fast and free shipping throughout Australia as well as free shipping on orders over $199.

Gig bag vs hard case — what’s the best option?

There are pros and cons to both gig bags and hard cases but overall, it all comes down to how often you use your instruments and how often you’ll be travelling with them. There are a few different elements you’ll need to consider when choosing between a gig bag and a hard case.

  • Price. Hard cases are pricier than gig bags due to the complex construction and extra protection. Gig bags are much cheaper so we recommend this option for beginners or those who don’t use their instrument a lot and/or don’t travel with their instrument.
  • Potential for damage. You’ll need to consider whether your instrument will get banged up, jarred or damaged when you’re travelling. For example, if you’re transporting your instrument in the back of a van or truck, you might want to choose a hard case to prevent any unnecessary damage. If your instrument is in storage at home, a regular gig bag would do the trick.
  • Space. Hard cases can take up a lot of room, especially if you have multiple instruments in heavy, hard cases. Gig bags are slim and lightweight, giving you more space for instruments in storage/at home.
  • Additional storage. Both hard cases and gig bags have extra storage — for example, most gig bags have zip-up storage pockets for picks, capos, leads and cables, and so on. Hard cases generally have some storage for these items but it can be limited.
  • Rare/specialty instrument. If you’ve got a special instrument in your collection, we definitely recommend a durable hard case. This will keep your rare or specialty instrument safe no matter what.
  • International travel. If you’re planning to fly with your guitar or instrument, it’s not a bad idea to invest in a hard case. Your instrument will likely be stored under the plane, so you’ll want to protect it from movement during the flight and potentially rough handling by the flight crew.

Of course, some musos opt to have both a soft case and a hard case — we always recommend getting one of each so you’re never caught out without an appropriate case, especially if you tend to travel a lot. 

Here at Musos, we’ve got hundreds of cases available from some of the world’s biggest brands like Roland, Epiphone, Gretsch, Fender and Armour. Browse the collection online or in-store!

What to look for in a gig bag

If you’re considering a soft gig bag, we recommend looking for something with plenty of padding for extra protection. Generally speaking, gig bags are made of lightweight materials like canvas and nylon, so you need that extra layer to keep your instrument safe in storage or on the road. 

Your guitar or instrument should be snug in the case — too much wiggle room can increase the chances of a damaged instrument. 

As well as padding, you should also consider storage. Most soft gig bags have zippered pockets for things like picks, strings and cleaning cloths, as well as detachable shoulder straps, a soft interior, handles and a hook for hanging up the bag.

What to look for in a hard case

Hard cases offer the best protection against bumps, drops, rapid changes in temperature and humidity. Temperature control is a major consideration for a guitar case — dry and humid climates are a guitar’s worst enemy (some musos even opt for a guitar humidifier to protect against cracks and other damage) — so a hard case is the best option for musos on the go. 

Other things to look out for in a hard case include sturdy latches and hinges, a storage compartment under the neck of the guitar, a soft interior and a comfortable, reliable handle.
