Topic: Nerdy question bassoon case cover rucksack style
I've had a bassoon case cover made, and when I got it I thought that it had the rucksack straps attached
the wrong way round. Let me explain. The rucksack straps are not symmetric. When I carry my case rucksack-style,
the standard carrying handle is on my left hand side. I think this is inconvenient. I usually take down my case
over the right shoulder, it is much easier to reach the standard carrying handle when it is on the right (while
carrying the bassoon rucksack style).
So now I'm wondering: how's your case cover made? Handle on the right or on the left when carried rucksack style
(some gigbags/cases are symmetric, I know)?
Another aspect is that I feel that it is better for the boot-cap end of the boot to point down when carrying the bassoon rucksack style,
and for the fragile ivory ring (already cracked) to point up.
