Slide Bag.....

Postby marlboroman » Tue May 09, 2006 1:28 am

does anyone know I can get a bag for my slides?? I was looking for something on the internet but didn't find anything. I want a bag that has pockets for the slides to fit in so they aren't clanking around and hitting each other.

I usually carry one in a pocket and one in the guitar case - as a spare.


But I do have some nifty little drawstring bags I bought at a toy store. I can put the individual slides in them and shift the lot around in a larger pouch. I've shown up with a selection sometimes for recording sessions.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON May-08-06 AT 11:45 PM (EST)]Mickey is right.

I use Crown Royal bags for everything !

I use 'em for Mic's,Slides, a bunch od old Coins I've collected over the years,etc. I use to keep my bags of Reefer in them....LOL

Those CR Bags are very handy indeed.

IMO, Crown Royal, Hockey and our very own Zak are the best things to ever come outta Canada....LOL !!!

[updated:LAST EDITED ON May-09-06 AT 02:06 AM (EST)]Look around for some of those accessories for carrying/holding harmonica/harps. There's boxes, bags, holsters, roll-up's with pockets, pouches. Check Lee Oscar, Hohner, etc. Slides are similar in size to a harp/harmonica, so slides should fit just fine.

Anyone remember "Bull Durham"? Haven't seen it since I was a kid, but those pouches would be 'just right', and mojo too.

Here it is on eBay:

I used to drink nothing but wine that came in a bag. That was a very poorly considered lifestyle choice.

I received some slides at our glass shop requiring adjustment & 'fine tuning', and they arrived from N.Y. in some very nice 'Levy's' black leather draw-string bags. I know the 'Levy' guitar straps are reputed to be the best in the bizz, so look 'em up for these bags also.....but i reckon they'll be expensive x(.

Happy Slidin'

I saw my dad make several drawstring bags for small items. I think I could make one of my own.

I have a small drawstring bag that I keep a slide and finger picks in.

I can see it now, a leather strap over the shoulder with an assortment of slides replacing the shotgun shells: a blues bandalier (sp?). A delta bandito.

Hey, that's an interesting site. I found MRE's by the case.

Military surplus store is a good place to look for odd/neat items like pouches, holsters, and such.

Another thought is a leather cigar holder.

Cheaper Than Dirt's been around a long time, and I like 'em. Another great place to get all kinds of stuff cheap is: http://sportsmansguide.com/
