Our story begins in the early 1980s in a five-car garage in Cambridge, Massachusetts where founder Ron Mooradian enlisted the aid of current owner Peter Hoffman to help him with his then fledging cover company. Both working musicians, they catered to the burgeoning Boston music scene. Aware of the need for a lightweight, easy-to-carry, yet protective means to “get to the gig” they began producing bags and covers for a wide variety of instruments.
Their friends and acquaintances became their customers and soon guitar students at the Berklee College of Music were clamoring for the guitar gig bags their professors were using. The occasional Double bassist from the Boston Pops and performing jazz bassists learned of Ron’s ability to sew up a cover for their bass and soon more teachers and students started calling the shop to come by for a fitting.
Realizing that the garage was too small a space to handle the increased demand of their creations, they moved across the river into Boston to larger quarters. Their dedication to servicing the growing needs of the local music scene did not waver while more musicians and players from outside Boston discovered the Mooradian brand.
Built on a foundation of quality, customer service and pride in workmanship the company began to garner a reputation for having the more desirable way to “get to the gig”. Soon, generic sizes for double basses, gig bags for two Electric guitars or basses, bags for keyboards, accordions and case covers for violin and viola became calling cards for a company dedicated to providing the best in lightweight protection.
After four decades of service to the world-wide musical community, the Mooradian Cover Company carries on their tradition of providing high quality, hand-crafted workmanship and personalized customer care to players of all kinds; famous and not famous, professional and amateur, teachers and students. We continue to expand our product horizons with an emphasis on Custom bags and covers for those stringed instruments that may stray off the beaten path of size and shape. Finding new and lightweight and innovative ways to protect your instrument has always been our mission and vision for the future.
