The Story

The original concept for this product came about sometime in the 1990s, while I was photographing a series of concerts by Emmylou Harris in the northwest. I witnessed a moment when a big gust of wind blew just after the band had practiced and their guitars, which were sitting on stands, became heavily coated with dust. The guitar tech had to spend more than a few minutes cleaning the instruments.

I had all but given up on the idea due to a wide range of challenges. A while ago, however, a musician friend of mine, who had been given a Busker Bag™, set up a lunch meeting and told me that I needed to go through with the project and offered to help me get a few bags done and preparations made to go the Summer NAMM. He joined many other musicians who had told me they thought they were a great product. I became a NAMM member, bought my plane ticket, reserved my room, and off I went!
