Two trombone case?

Post by whitbey » Sat Jul 13, 2019 8:19 am

I am wishing for a double bone case. I have a Bags of Spain Alto tenor that I reworked and like. Bags of Spain cases seem to be gone.

The most likable I found is the Gewa Prestige SPS Trombone Case, Double Trombone Hybrid Cases. Hickeys has one for sale.

I have not found any pics of the insides.

And hoping for a bit cheaper.

You could go Cronkhite but it's not exactly cheap. Also if you go used you can try and find an Reunion Blues or an Alteiri.
On the expensive side you could get a Bonna.

Double tenor? Tenor alto?

I have the Cronkhite double tenor. It's great for transporting two tenors, as long as you don't want to fly with it or throw it under a bus. I like it because it's not very large and very comfortable to carry, something you can't say for the equivalent Bonna cases.

Alex Iles swears by his double Bonna case. Bass + tenor. He says it even fits in many overheads. I still think he's crazy for flying with it. If it does fit... it's right on the border of it's too big to fit in the overhead and I wouldn't want to risk putting it under the plane.

Check out the facebook post he made on the case. Should be in one of the trombone groups.

The Cronkhite double leather cases are really nice for carrying.

The Marcus Bonna is nice, but big. Definitely not walking across town if I can help it.
I wouldn't fly with it but I wouldn't worry about it in a trunk or under a bus.

Basili will do some custom things and they're cheaper than the Marcus Bonna, but they always feel unfinished and unrefined. The fiberglass shell and cover are cool but the interior always leaves something to be desired.
