Slide cases?

Post by elmsandr » Sat Apr 21, 2018 7:28 am

Does anybody make a good slide only case? Back in ancient times, there were some nice Bach and King slide cases. I have an extra or two that I’d like to make sure don’t get destroyed. I know that you could just buy half of the Cronkite travel case, but I’m thinking something with a harder shell. Oddly, as I get older I’m finding more need for a solid item that I won’t accidentally squish.

Cheers,
Andy

Conn makes a good one. Taylor Music (S Dakota?) used to sell them for $95. Well worth it...

if you are OK with a case that can store more than one, there is a Conn demo slide case, $89 shipped, on eBay.

I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are still missing! :D

Remember that those Conn slide cases are for Conn width slides; they won't fit wider Bach width slides.

I am not sure about that. I have a Benge 290 slide in that case. I think that is as wide as a Bach.

I can look into it if anyone cares...

I contacted one of the eBay sellers of the Conn slide cases. I was told by the owner that Bach width slides would not safely fit.

We, M&W, just bought one of these cases. Our slides, which are Bach width, fit just fine. (both length and width)
It was the first thing that I checked when it arrived.
