Looking for a nice case that fits a Bach 36BO

Post by ranttila » Sat Jun 02, 2018 6:54 am

I’ve been playing on my Bach LT36BOG that I got from dj kennedy for the past few months and have been loving its improved sound over my King 606, but have had some problems with the bell section in the case. I use a Protec Max case and every time I either take the horn out or put it back in, I have to adjust the F-attachment tuning slide so that it is in tune and then so it fits in the case. If I leave the f-attachment tuning slide out a fair bit, so it is in tune, it does not fit in my case. I would some suggestions for a good quality case where the trombone just fits with the open f-attachment being correctly tuned so I don’t have to adjust it so often.
Thanks

How long is it from bell to tuning slide tip? If you measure I can tell you if it'll fit in an Eastman and an SKB462.

From bell to tuning slide tip it is just a tad over 30 inches.

I use my 36BO in an Eastman.

Quick point, I put all my tuning slides all the way in matter what. This keeps them moving and they won't get crud on them too.

Same here.

But either way... My 36BO fits into an Eastman and BAM Classic. I like the Eastman and I LOVE the BAM.

Thanks for the suggestions. I’m looking at getting an Eastman or I might just stick with my Protec Max as you guys think that it’s ok to be adjusting your tuning slides often.

I'm a big fan of the Eastmans myself. They're a lot lighter than the Protec cases (or really most cases generally). I actually can't find my tape measure unfortunately but I do recall having my Shires tru-bore in there and it fit fine, even when it was pulled out rather considerably. so your open wrap should be fine.
