Look After Your Instrument

Whatever the value of your instrument in monetary terms, it is doubtless of great value to you! Cases tend to age more quickly than the instrument, especially if they are carted around on buses, trains or even planes! We stock a range of cases, trying to cater for all needs whether you just take the flute in the car from time to time, or travel regularly abroad via plane and need a top quality flight case. Today it is often possible to take your instrument into the cabin of the plane (rather than the hold) but even then it can get "bashed".

We stock Hiscox cases, Winter Flight Cases, Vincent bach gig bags, Ortola and Ortola Sound line cases with rucksack straps for extreme portability, Bam cases for excellent protection at a price, and the extremely versatile Pro-Tec cases.

Like most music accessories, the array is perhaps sometimes bewildering. For instance, gig bag or case? It really depends on the kind of life you lead with your instrument. If you play mostly indoors, you might never have to renew the case you bought with your instrument. On the other hand, you might need to travel to your band/orchestra practices regularly and want something versatile and portable like a gig bag, or walstein case with straps that you can carry easily. Below are some descriptions of the cases we sell, particularly the Hiscox and Vincent bach gig bags.
Hiscox Cases - Outside

Hiscox Cases - Outside

The criteria for the design of the Hiscox Liteflite cases is basically "the very best lightweight case possible, encompassing the use of the finest modern materials."

The result is a range of cases manufacturered using a unique composite double moulded construction which gives unparalleled protection from a light weight case.

The moulded, high impact ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadeine Styrene - strong and rigid over a wide temperature range - used for car bumpers and compouter housings) plastic outer shell is bonded directly to an inner moulding manufacturered from a unique blend of "high tech" cellular foam.

The inner moulding is feather light, semi-rigid and designed to soak up impact shocks. The unique bonding of the inner moulding to the outer shell gives unbeatable, total structural rigidity.

The case lining is complete with a crushed velvet cloth, bonded directly onto the shaped foam moulding giving a neatly tailored luxurious feel, perfectly fitted every time. The aluminium valance increases the rigidity of the case and ensures a positive location of lid to base when the two halves are closed.

Unlike any other case available on the market, the valance extends deep inside the case behind teh plastic shell, into which all the hardware (handles, catches hinges etc.) is riveted. This method of fixing greatly reduces the possiblity of fittings working loose. With their incredible structural rigidity, all Hiscox "Liteflite" cases exhibit enormous crush strength (comfortably supporting the weight of a 15st - 90kg person)
Vincent Bach Gig Bags

Vincent Bach Gig Bags

  1. The finest Buffalo Indian leather is used for the outer, the softest environmentally friendly cotton velvet for the inner lining.
  2. Heavy duty metal fittings, and specially formulated hard foam which is expansive, dense and highly impact resistant contribute to this bag's excellent mechanics.
  3. No gaps under the seams or zip help prevent damage and scratches caused by impact. Removable circular rigid foam pad to protect instrument bell.
Winter Flight Aluminium Valenced Cases

Winter Flight Aluminium Valenced Cases

Series 200 Bullet case with strong aluminium valance, and hard, anodised shell - Exceptionally hard-wearing flight case. Well padded interior, and hard exterior provide maximum protection. These are probably the best cases to take if they're likely to have to go in the hold of a plane, or be particularly abused.
Bam Cases

Bam Cases

Bam make a huge range of cases for virtually all instruments. They are all incredibly functional and rather beautiful. This trombone case, for instance, is an ultra light injected foam case with moulded cover. Light, waterproof, has accessory compartment inside the case for mouthpiece and lubricant. Has external sheet music holder, which clips around the case. Comes with well-padded neoprene rucksack-straps.

Bam cases tend to be more expensive due to the materials used and the care that goes into making them.
