Malletech LHSTB Tour Bag Stick and Mallet Bag - Product Information

The Malletech Tour Bag was first designed in 1979 by Leigh Howard Stevens. This mallet bag was the first and finest large mallet bag ever made for marimbists and percussionists.

Over the years it has been constantly improved and remains the standard by which others are compared. When fully opened and hanging on an instrument, Tour Bag is 36 inches wide by 21 inches high. It folds and zops into a 16 by 21-inch shoulder bag, leaving the large outer pockets accessible and protecting your mallets and sticks inside. Tour Bag is made of highest quality, heavy, black cotton corduroy that will give you a lifetime of use.

good

Comments:

- good overall. - another negative vote on the zipper. you could argue that accessing the mallets from the top would not be easy due to the inner flap, but there are ways around that. but not only is it inconvenient, if you pick up the bag and the zipper is not done up all the way and there is anything loose inside... it falls out. absurd. - also way too expensive.

Nice look, feel, and durability - not perfect

Comments:

After a few months of use, we took this bag in to be altered so that the zipper closed from the opposite direction. As it is, the zipper opens from the bottom - meaning that if you want to quickly take something out of the bag, you have to completely unfold it to access your mallets, as opposed to simply unzipping the top, like most other mallet bags. This is definitely inconvenient, but is not a deal breaker. The corduroy is high quality, feels nice, and (so far) as lasted well. With the zipper alternation, it is MUCH more convenient (although, it should be noted that such alterations add an addition $10-$30 to your cost) to bring on-the-go, although I still switch between this bag and another depending on where I'm going. This is the PERFECT bag to hang from your keyboard instrument. For concert use and on-the-go use, it is a tad bulky, and the unaltered zipper is definitely a pain, but the bag's quality construction and design still make it a better choice than most. If you need a bag to keep at home on your instrument, get this one. If you want something to go between concerts and practices, you may want to consider something smaller - if you need something this large for on-the-go use, this remains one of your best options (alone with the Vic Firth leather bag). Overall, this bag is high quality, looks and feels great, but has a few drawbacks (notably, the zipper) that make it less than convenient when you're on the go. It's expensive - a large portion of which likely comes from the brand name on the side - but worth the money if you have need for a bag this size. Definitely consider smaller bags for running between rehearsals and gigs, but get this bag for use at home and for those occasions when you really need a large selection of mallets.

OK, but....

Comments:

This is a great compliment to your beautiful 5 octave marimba but other than that I would not recommend this bag if you are on the move. I have mine pretty full and though it is not that heavy of a load, the corduroy ripped along the strap and inside it? Not very durable, so like I said, hang it on your 5, but don't take it on the go...

Not an everyday bag

Comments:

First off, I think this bag would be ten times better if it zippered from the top instead of the bottom. It gets to be a pain when i have to totally unfold the thing at a concert. That being said, I wouldn't recommend this for a student or gigging percussionist. I would recommend it for someone who needs an awesome mallet bag to hang from the keyboard. It's got plenty of room and is made of very durable corduroy, but for someone who is on the move and needs quick and easy access to their mallets, go for something cheaper. I have this bag along with an innovative, I keep this one of the marimba, but the innovative is my everyday use.

This is a great stickbag! I really enjoy it. It nice heavy dudy black corduroy on the outside and the inside. It has 16 pockets on the inside plus this little extra pocket for something like claves. And even has this little flap the comes over the tops of your mallets for even more protection. The only i dont like about it is the fact that the zipper comes from the bottom. But other that - GREAT.
