Finding a gig bag for my dulcimer was a frustrating adventure. I found soft, padded ones starting around $80 and going up from there. That was more than I wanted to spend, given this is my first dulcimer and not very expensive. It’s my “see if you want to play this thing,” instrument. Still, I want to protect it from scratching and such.
I decided to look at bags for the Fendet Strat and found one that works nicely. My dulcimer is 35 inches overall and, while the bag specs say its internal length is 34 inches, my instrument fits fine. The bag is a Tosnail Mini-Strat bag. Best news is it cost me $17.99. I recommend doing a search online to find businesses that sell it, if you’re looking for a low price bag.
I don’t think this is a bag for better, more expensive instruments, so when I buy a better dulcimer (soon), I will want a better bag or case. Until then, this is a good solution for me.
I post this as I’ve noticed questions about bags left by folks like me, looking for a less expensive bag alternative. I DO NOT sell these bags, have no relationship with anyone in the bag’s supply chain and receive no compensation for posting about this item.
I believe this post conforms to guidelines, and apologize in advance if I’m wrong.
Added a couple pictures for your convenience.
