Absolutely stunning cases.

I picked up a large tenor case from Superfine Cases a few months ago. Materials and finish is comparable if not better than the competition. What makes Superfine Cases stand out is the customer service and the willingness to do custom specs. Prices are also very reasonable and the turnaround time is lightning fast considering you're getting a custom handmade case.

I cannot recommend these cases enough. If you don't need a hard case this company should be at the top of your list.

I still intend on ordering a slim bass case one of these days!!!

Further, the main proprietor of the company is a very reputable member of TromboneChat whom I've dealt with many times. Always excellent.

With concern from some over the years about who's reputable, how not to get scammed online, etc...this is a company I would trust, no questions asked.

You guys are awesome! Thanks for the kind words.

Did someone say screwbell?... We are working on it! I should have them ready in about a month. Small tenor, large tenor, and bass. They are based on the Touring model with separate cases. But slim!

Great!
FWIW, I am not a fan of the seperate case idea. I would be afraid to get into some semantic argument with a flight attendant over whether or not it's "one carry-on". Also I like a single rectangular case because it just seems more sturdy and you can stack it or put light things on it.
But I'm sure any case you make will be a valuable addition to the screw bell case market which is so far very limited in choices!

That did actually happen to me, but I won by saying it's one instrument that separates just to fit better in the overhead.

But for a screw bell case, even if it's a 1 piece case, because it's so thin, fitting in the overhead isn't a problem anymore.

Very Happy Customer report here.

Ordered a black leather travel bag for a client of mine in Spain, to go with the instrument I had made him. Tom was great to deal with, and the product was every bit as impressive, if not better, than I expected it would be.

I can, without any hesitation, recommend Superfine Cases.

Thanks Tom!

Well, this one is come along slowly. The photos show the Small Tenor bell section bag. The slide goes in a separate case (not shown but you can see on the web site) and buckles to the bell section bag. The flare insert looks funny - because it is. I used a new foam we are trying and it is overly stiff. Good for some things but not this. We will try another foam we have.

So this bag is designed for 8" horns with screwbell. The maximum thickness of the flare section is 5". The tuning slide end of the bell section goes next to the flare insert. The flare insert has a flat bottom and flat top, so I don't think it will move around much. If it does, we will put velcro straps to secure it to the bag. The bag is very short and is 7" thick.

The maximum thickness of the flare section is 5".
forgive me cuz I haven't seen too many different screw bell conversions. But my flares are 3" thick. Are there really flares out there that are 5"?

The case looks great. I understand wanting to please a broad market. You guys know a lot more than me about case design and your market. But perhaps there is a way to make it thinner? The Marcus Bonna is about 5" thin and the 80s hard shell Holton is about 4.75". Case thickness is everything here- that's the whole reason for the screw bell conversion in the first place!

Jacob, you've identified the problem with designing bags for horns that are not in front of me. I have never handled a screwbell except a few French horns that have passed through my hands. Different people tell me different things and that can cause problems. I was pretty happy about a thickness of 7"!

I think I will start a new thread asking playing to share information about their screwbells. If you could provide good measurements of yours, that would be great!

I also think in a desire for case makers to make products that are "universal" they make concessions that make the cases unnecessarily large. The vast majority of large bore horns have 8 1/2 in bells, and a tiny fraction have 9 in bells. Does that mean every large bore case must fit a 9 in bell, adding 1 inch to the thickness of the case? That's how you end up with enormous cases like the SKB pro, which is both too big to fit in many overheads yet not strong enough to consistently check.
I have high hopes for your product! Hopefully it will be significantly smaller than the existing non-screw bell Cronkhite and Reunion Blues.

Yes! I have learned this lesson. My first bags were sized for the largest horn that someone might want to put in! That makes no sense. Our three sizes now are Small Tenor (up to 8″ bell), Large Tenor (up to 8.5″ bell), and Bass Trombone (up to 9.5″ bell). If someone has a bass with a 10" bell or something else uncommon, they can contact us. And we plan to continue to tweak away any remaining unnecessary roominess.

As for the screwbell model, we are working on ideas on how to reduce the width. I can think of 1.5" of space saving on our current 7" width.

Another thought. I can make the bag thinner if there is no overlap between flare and bell section. But it would be longer, of course. Is that a good trade-off? On the other hand, an area of overlap only needs to add 1" to the width.

We are working on a new design that will be similar to the old O style bags. Outside pocket of leather only with removable slide insert. This will be a leather-only bag.

At some point, yes. I made up a few tuba mouthpiece pouches and I was happy with them. But it is fairly low priority, so it will take a while to get back to...

I took a fairly beat-up Reunion Blues bag with a broken zipper and stripped it down to leather. Put in all new foam, lining, some anchors, handles, and large #10 YKK zipper. The slide case is the Touring case but with longer handles, so all four handles can be held comfortably. The RED leather was some that I got for a custom order. But I like it so much that we are now carrying it.

May have been asked already, this thread's getting a bit long: Are you guys planning to do hard cases at some point?
