I went through this same thing about a year ago. If I remember
correctly, Protec was a house brand for one of the big mail order
companies (either Sweetwater or Zzounds, I think). I'm not seeing it
now, so no telling why that changed. Regardless, you can get the
same rack bag for almost $15 cheaper over at Music123 (
Personally, I *really* like the wheeled Rockbag by Warwick (
My biggest complaint with that one, however, is that they are full
depth with a very sturdy wooden frame. So, I've this annoying habit
of installing a set of rear rack rails myself and mounting things
from both front and rear -- thus turning a 4-space into an 8-space, a
6-space into a 12, etc., etc.... ;)
But on the other hand, about six months ago I found myself wanting a
cheap & light little 4-space bag. I walked into the local Guitar
Slut (erm, Guitar Center, I mean) and grabbed a generic rack bag from
them; it *might* be an Odyssey, I think. Only cost about $60, with a
plastic internal frame (keeps me from operating on it) and rack rails
in front. If you haven't already, I'd take a quick trip down to
check out what they've got at the local GC. You might find just what
you're looking for there.
