As Thomas Pridgen jokingly said "most people don't play 24" rides because they just can't put them in their cymbal bags". Well, with this Protec Cymbal Bag C232 you can easily prove him wrong.
It's really great for keeping bigger cymbals like 24" rides or 20"-22" crashes, as it has lots of space inside and comes with a handy cymbal divider.
It's even better if you play with a 16" hi-hat like me. Most bags come with an external round-shaped pocket specially designed for storing hi-hats, but the problem is that mostly they are sized for only up to 15" cymbals thus making those external pockets kind of useless. Instead, this Protec cymbal bag has a large external rectangle pocket which is quite useful - you can put a lot of sticks in there or even some percussion instruments (for ex. some smaller chimes like I do). It also has a pen holder and a pocket where you can put some paper if you like to take notes, I find it a really great feature.
The only minus would be that it's impossible to put it on the back as it comes with a shoulder strap only.
In summary - +The best for big cymbals +Roomy external pocket +Handy internal cymbal divider +Well protected bottom -Shoulder strap only
Overall, no cymbal bag has ever suited my needs so fine.
Long lasting, strong and reliable cymbal bag with all the space you need
I got this bag to replace my old one that also had a front pocket. I have a stick bag but got so used to the convenience of having everything in the one bag this caught my eye. Ideal for having all you need in one place and means it's one less thing to carry to the gig. Great price and has plenty of room for plenty of cymbals; up to 24 inches. Solid shoulder and hand straps for carrying, but when full can be a heavy bag especially when walking with it. Has lasted me 5 years now with no damage and minimal wear and tear. Quality.
