The Bass Sleeve is the latest addition to MONO's collection of professional luggage for musicians. Designed to be a minimalist solution for traveling light and simple, the new Sleeve collection of cases merges MONO's innovative protection and high quality construction standards into a super slim and stylish design.
360° PROTECTION Like the Vertigo, the Sleeve is Top-Loading for quick, stand-up access. Its design allows you to quickly unzip the Sleeve and pull your bass out from the top. This is enabled by a hidden diagonal hinge on the front panel of the case. Once unzipped, the case naturally opens out and to the right. No need to lay the Sleeve down on the floor. Easy access.
HEADLOCK The Bass Sleeve features a slimmer variation of the Headlock — MONO's patented neck suspension system. This slimmer Headlock is molded from solid, shock-absorbing EVA rubber to protect the neck and headstock from impact during falls. When your bass is zipped-in, its neck is automatically secured inside the Headlock's contoured groove.
EVA INSOLE At the bottom, the Sleeve features a super slim EVA insole to keep the body off the ground and protect the strap pin from bottoming-out when the Sleeve is put down too hard.
SMART STORAGE The Sleeve features a messenger bag style storage pouch that's perfect for small laptops, tablets, notebooks, cables and other extras that you might need when traveling light. A small interior mesh pocket keeps those little, critical items close at hand.
WEAR IT OUT We build the Sleeves using only high-test materials with extreme resistance to abrasion and the elements. Outside, the water-resistent shell keeps you on the move, rain or shine.
RIVETED HANDLE Industrial webbing handles come standard on Sleeves. Bar-tack stitching and steel rivets provide a super reliable grip.
CUSTOM STEEL BUCKLE A custom steel buckle is used to secure the storage pouch with industrial seatbelt webbing. Simple and secure with a nice touch of style.
DOUBLE STEEL ZIPPERS Custom finished steel zipper pulls with easy-grip hypalon tabs. Self-healing nylon zippers ensure easy and reliable usage.
DIMENSIONS & FITTING The Sleeve is designed for standard, solid-body electric instruments. Hollow-body and other instruments with an overall maximum thickness (including bridge, pick-ups, knobs, toggles, etc.) of 3" are not recommended for the Sleeve. Bass Sleeve pouch internal fitting dimensions are 14" wide x 12" long (short side), 16" long (long side), and can be filled up to 2.5"- 3" deep.
