Are you an active violinist, running nonstop to rehearsals, performances and lessons? Do you bring all your sheet music and accessories with you because there is zero time between performances?
Have you yearned for a free hand to take a phone call, grab a bite to eat or to hold your umbrella when it rains?
The Joey is a revolutionary new solution to carrying your violin case and all your accessories with ease! With the highest quality backpacking straps and cushions normally found only on top-end hiking and climbing gear, you'll forget you're wearing the Joey, yet everything you need is at hand.
Using the Joey is a snap! Easy to attach around any oblong violin case, and just as easy to remove. Secure clips and even a safety strap assure that your case isn't going anywhere except with you.
Everything an active player needs in one place, with a stylish look! Black fabric with reflective piping assures a great look with added safety, and the backpack straps stow under a flap when not in use. Zippered storage pockets easily hold a large orchestra folder, several quartets, metronome, pre-amp, cable and pencils. There is a special pouch for your iPad or Kindle and you can even bring your folding music stand or umbrella in Joey's special, fold-flat storage pouch.

So useful! Until the straps came detached from the bag and the attachment points frayed all to heck. That being said I am a music student, music teacher, and touring musician. I am hard on stuff, often used this on a bike, and have scoliosis so the tension
on it was wonky. I reckon it'd be last longer if you weren't putting it through such a trial. I will try and repair it (a few hours ago I got into a nasty bike accident trying to bike with my fiddle in a hiking backpack) but I'm not optimistic.
The Joey pack back allows me to carry all my musical needs while playing Jams. Sometimes from the parking lot to the jam can be a good hike. Also allows me to pack up and hit all the jams in the area. Leaves my hands free. When not needed I can remove umbrella and my fiddlet stand fits in its place
I am a clarinetist who also enjoys playing violin. I needed a way to safely transport my basset horn to Europe in a separate case from my clarinets. The basset case is the same width as an oblong violin case, so I purchased the Joey to carry the instrument on my back. It is a perfect fit, making the trip a lot less cumbersome. It also kept my horn from being damaged and has loads of extra storage space. Such a useful purchase....five stars! Thanks!
First of all, I took a change & puschased this even though I have a shaped case (rather than an oblong case). They are making a model for shaped cases; the customer service rep I spoke to said 6 months to a year until that came out. However, as long as you attach the case to the case's handle (on the side), it's secure. I put some bubble wrap to minimize the case rocking back & forth (you can also stuff a scarf, hat, & golves in there) and traveled for several days with the case. The backpack straps were comfortable & evenly distributed weight. I fit three books, a small purse (very small), and a tablet in the compartmnets, plus a small music stand in the side pocket.
This is a great case!!
I am a beginning violist and my significant other is an accomplished violinist. We both play in orchestras, mine New Horizons and his a marvelous community orchestra that performed the Messiah this year, plus the local festival orchestra each August. We
always have tons to tote and something is always nearly forgotten. Now with the Joey, we can have EVERYTHING together. We have had fun loading them up and can't wait until rehearsals start again to try them out. They seem very well made and my viola case (16"
viola) just fits with the buckles all the way out. We can fit in our music, stands, lights and all other paraphernalia and miscellany that seems to require portage. Very happy with my Christmas to us and our music.
