The handmade Case I offer
I want to first say. I'm not a case maker. My passion is making the instruments.
That being said I realize how much customers want a case for there instrument and trying to find something to fit it is really hard. The fact I have so many variation and allow customers to choose their scale length for example, makes it impossible for me to track down cases for each one, or even stock them. I just simply don't have the time for this. (okay I don't want to :)
The first question I always get asked is:
Does it come with a case?
It's taking years to find a method that:
-Uses materials that are easy to get.
-Is fairly quick and easy to make.
-Uses some recycled materials
-Gives more protections then a bag and is made to the shape of the instrument.
What it's made of.
Sides and back are 2 layers of heavy duty recycled cardboard adding up to 1/2 " thick
The top is 1/4" plywood
It works great and will get you started. You can always down the road get a professional case made for your instrument. Of course that will cost a lot more.
Here are some examples of ones I have made in the last while. Sometimes I throw some artistic bits on them to reflect the customers interest.
