Grandmother Road case/gig bag?

Post by Mr. Z » Sun Aug 12, 2018 10:21 pm

Hello all,
First post , glad to be here. I recently picked up a Grandmother and was wondering if it will fit in any current Moog gig bag or road case, maybe the Sub 37/Little Phatty? Or possibly an Odyssey flight case? I don’t see anything on offer specifically for the GM yet...

I ordered the Sub37/Lil Phatty gig bag for my Grandmother. The bag is a little too big so I placed the bottom half of the protective foam from the original box into the bag. With that small adjustment the bag is now pretty snug and offers a little more protection to boot!

I just received my Grandmother today and I'm really hoping Moog will release the ATA Road case like they did for the Sub 37... planning on serious gigging with this!

I did the same thing. Seems ok until Moog releases an official GM case, if they ever do that is...

The Gator G-LCD-TOTE-SMX2 (Bag for two LCD Screens) should work. Inner dimensions are 23.5 x 15.55 x 6 inches. Price is 160 $ or 109 Euro.

Update: I just bought it an it fits really well as if it was made for the gm, no crafting needed.

I just got this one (as suggested in an above post), and it fits as if it had been designed for the GM.

Looks good. Would you say that it offers the same protection as the case for the Sub 37 does?

I'm about to find out, as I just ordered one to provide some protection to transport the GM to an upcoming show.

I went into the local sallyann with a measuring tape, and picked up a nice suitcase for $10 that fits perfectly

plus I can now say I've stuffed my Grandmother into a suitcase, if anybody asks :)

Can totally confirm this. I found one locally, bought it this morning and it indeed fits the GM as if made for it. With a shoulder strap, I now make quite the fashion statement.

I was going to order a Sub 37/LP bag but it has huge MOOG letter on the one side ... which is sometimes not a good thing. I prefer nondescript bags when possible. A little more low-key, less obvious, more ubiquitous.
