Established in 1990, Ruby Company is situated in Dongguan of China, a city of origin for world-renowned bags and suitcases brands. Over the past 26 years, we have been focusing on designing and producing bags and suitcases, and have been providing ODM and OEM services for numerous big brands like YAMAHA, F BASS, etc.
In 2012, we established our own brand: Music Area, with a mission to make quality instrument bags. We insist on choosing four Chinese characters: 音乐驿站(YinYueYiZhan) as our brand logo instead of Music Area- its English name. The logo is designed like an Imperial Seal to present the profound seal culture in China as well as deliver our brand concept: guarantee on superior quality products. 音乐驿站(YinYueYiZhan) means a place specifically for all musicians and fans to have fun together, like a live music bar……more
I’ll go ahead and admit: I prefer hard-shell cases for stringed instruments. That being said, there are times it’s nicer and easier to carry a soft gig bag and this is the nicest one I’ve ever seen.
Instead of a flimsy (maybe padded, maybe not) bag leaving your valuable instrument subject to shifting cargo, mishandling and other potential disasters, this bag is sturdy with a full inch of padding in every direction. The zipper zips easily and firmly. The handle is comfortable. There is a generous zippered pouch for strings, straps, picks, small electronics, etc.
We tried three guitars in this case: a Fender Strat, a Gibson Les Paul and an Ibanez. All fit well and snug. Possibly a thin-bodied acoustic would fit. The case has plenty of places to put capos, music, tuners, etc. The backpack type of straps make it great for transporting. One unique feature is the neck support — we’d never seen that in a soft bag but it is very important to protect the neck of the guitar while transporting it. We also liked the rubber grips on the bottom to keep it from falling over when put up against a wall. The waterproof feature is so important for protecting an instrument from the elements. We also really like the interior padding. All in all, this guitar bag is a good value for the features you get.
It’s really too early for a review of a product like this. However I just felt I had to describe what I see so far. So far this thing is amazing. Zippers are smooth. Material and stitching is very nice. Padding is awesome. I own 4 reunion blues bags and love them all. Bought the first one back in 1991 and it was about to replace it. Compartments are also spacious and nice as hell.
As long as this thing stays together which I think it will, it’s amazing.
You’ve converted me from reunion blues.
This gig bag exceeds all my expectations. It should be a durable item, i have had it for less than a month. But so far no issues or problems at all. It is very comfortable to carry, and I like the fact that you get excellent protection for your instrument but it is also very easy to carry on your back. The interior and exterior materials are top quality, also the quality of workmanship shows great attention to detail in the manufacturing process.
