Outstanding large mallet bag. In my forty five years of using mallet bags, this one ranks #1.

Wonderful and LARGE Firth Mallet Bag

Comments:

This vinyl, leather-like attractive bag is the big brother of the large Firth Sick bag, made of the same waterproof tough and thick vinyl material with cool Firth logo embroidered on the front. I have had the Firth stick bag for several years and it is still brand new looking after MANY trips to and fro. This mallet bag IS HUGE-- about 3 feet wide! Look carefully at the picture on the add showing it draped in front of a large marimba to get a clear idea of just how big this bag is. It has a corduroy top flap that protects and covers the timp sticks and mallets from dirt and scuffing when open or closed. It will hold lots more with it's two tiers of slots to place the mallets in: total of 16!, Has outside pocket on one side big enough to hold a full size laptop, or your music folder, and two other pockets on the other side as well. Clips to secure it to an instrument, but that better be a VERY STURDY instrument indeed or may tip over if the bag is absolutely stuffed with mallets! The ONLY feasible complaint is that, UNLIKE the Firth Stick Bag, the zipper opens from the BOTTOM rather than the TOP, requiring the entire zipper to be unzipped to remove mallets, rather than leaving it folded over, and half closed, so it can be more easily stood up. I can't imagine how Firth missed this detail, which on the Stick bag does unzip from the top. This change would have made this the perfect bag for those wishing to tote OR store in their studio a large amount of sticks and mallets, protected from harm and all in one place... Of course some pros might need ten of these bags! Noted one review with much amusement: one upset "Mom" was "VERY ANGRY" that the bag was TOO BIG, and therefore too heavy for Junior to tote to school! LOL This is a great, though pricey bag at about $90, for the serious percussionist.

Huge!

Comments:

This bag is everything I've needed for too long. My smaller bag kept over flowing and I ended up leaving certain mallets at home as not to damage them. Not anymore. This thing will safely haul more than enough mallets for each gig that I am a part of. Great durability and quality. A must have for any serious player.

Great mallet bag!

Comments:

My school has three of these and they're been really handy to have if you use several pairs of mallets. Even though it has a little weight on it and a little difficult to bring on the go due to its size, it is very durable great to use for solo, concert band, and orchestras. The only downside is that the pockets are a little small (fits only one normal pair of mallets in each pocket) and it can be difficult to switch mallets quickly, especially if you have to use 4 mallets because it's harder to set mallets in the pockets than it is to get them out. So, I personally don't recommend this bag for marching band, drum corp, or indoor drumline if you would have to occasionally change mallets. Other than that, a great bag to have.

MASSIVE

Comments:

Great sized bag, and very durable. It has plenty of space for all of my sticks, mallets, etc...and what surprised me even more were the amount of exterior pockets! I have enough space to fit all of my books, music, binders, metronome, tuner, and even a practice pad in the exterior pockets. My only complaint is that the bag by itself is a little heavy; but I guess that's the price of durability.

Vic Firth Concert Keyboard Mallet Bag

Comments:

This bag is HUGE and heavy. Somehow you don't get how truly big it is. Too big for a school locker. It is about the size of a large briefcase. This is great for professionals, but not for the student. I think you should include that it is about the size of a briefcase in the description, just so it is clear that it is large.

Such a big bag for carrying all the mallets you need. I use it in conjunction with the Vic Firth Drumstick Bag.

Duh, winning.

Comments:

5 is not a high enough number to rate how amazing this bag is. Seriously I buy mallets just so I can put them in this bag. It is the bag to end all bags.

VIc Firth Bag

Comments:

This is the best bag big bag you can buy. It has many pockets, three big enough for music and books, and 2 that can hold smaller items. The bag itself holds more pairs of mallets than I can count and can hold all the way up to bass drum or gong mallets.The leather is very durable and lasts for a very long time.

Great

Comments:

This bag is PERFECT for everything. I have 4 pair timpani mallets, 2 pair marimba mallets, 2 pair xylophone mallets, 3 pair glock mallets, 9 pair of drumsticks, 2 pair of brushes, 3 music folders, a music binder, a towel, a 10x10 trap table, and all of the miscellaneous junk that percussionist need, ie: drum key, pencil, tuners. The outer pockets are getting a bit full with all of the music and whatnot, but the inside pockets for the mallets/sticks could hold twice what i already have in them. The one draw back to this bag is that it is quite large. It does not fit into my high school percussion locker. Great buy for anyone with lots of stuff.

Description

Comments:

This review will be a more detailed description for anyone wanting to get this bag. The inside has: -16 mallet/stick pockets total (each holding up to 8 pairs of mallets or 7 pairs of sticks over stuffed, 11" x 4") -4 pencil pockets (only cover half of mechanical pencil, may fall out) -2 small pockets (big enough to hold a pitch pipe case completely, 3" x 4") -5 loops for hanging on an instrument (may or may not hold it, it's a heavy bag) Note: When only the bottom is zipped up, some mallets hang out the side as the pocket is wide, but it's no big deal. On the outside: -2 small handles on each side at top and one thicker shoulder strap -The huge main zipper has one of those overhang zippers where it goes out farther than the bag about 2 inches so it can open all the way -3 pockets on front (9" x 16" (zips across), 8" x 16" (zips across), and 18" x 16" (zips around)) -2 pockets in back (17" x 16" (zips around) and 17" x 16" (zips across)) Closed: 24" x 18" Open 24" x 36"

The Best

Comments:

It's truly hard to find any flaws with this bag. First of all, it's huge. This bag has 16 interior pockets for sticks and mallets, plus pencil holders. The exterior is made of a leather like vinyl that maintains the sleek look of leather without all the trouble (keeps the cost down too). The zipper is massive. The outer pockets are very spacious, and allow for plenty of towels, sheet music, tuners, metronomes, etc. to be stored with ease. I've owned this for nearly 2 years and it has been great. I use this for all my snare sticks, xylo, glock, vibe, and marimba mallets. It can get quite heavy, but technically it is designed only for keyboard mallets. But it's big enough to hold all the other stuff, so why not? My only complaint is that the main shoulder strap is a bit awkward and uncomfortable. I would have preferred a thicker strap with a padded shoulder pad. But that said, this bag still easily beats out the competition in this price range (about $50). The other bags in this range are not even close! I would say this bag is just as good as the more expensive equivalently sized models... such as the humes & berg or the innovative. If you have a large collection of sticks and mallets and no where to put them - But this bag!

Good bag

Comments:

I've had this for over a year now, it's a great value for anyone who has lots of stuff to carry. I am easily able to fit 9 pairs of snare sticks, 8 pairs of timpani mallets, 3 pairs of vibe mallets, 2 pairs of xylophone mallets, a pair of bell mallets, 7 pairs of marimba mallets, 8 drum set sticks, 2 pairs of brushes, and tons of my music in hear. The only bad side is that because it's so big it's not that easy to hall around. It also doesn't fit that easily into my storage locker at school and it has a couple of rips in it already after a year. But overall a great buy.

This bag is gigantic. You should include the dimensions in your description of the product -- 17" tall and almost 36" wide when open. It's also VERY heavy. I would never have ordered this for my student had I known how big it was. Now I get to spend the money to return it.

Great Stickbag

Comments:

As far as size goes, this is the best stick bag that I can find anywhere on the market. The big zipper allows for "over-stuffing" and two zippers allow you to open it from the top or bottom. The leather looks very nice and the multiple outside pockets are very handy. The only problem with it is that there is only one shoulder strap, which will tear at the base if used too often. Other than that this is an excellent stickbag and well worth the low price!! Buy it.
