Carbon Fibre Contrabassoon Case

£2,608.00£3,118.00

A very hard, strong case that will deal with all day-to-day travel as well as being placed in the hold of an aeroplane. An extra skin of carbon can be built into the design if the case is specifically for aeroplane travel.  This case, despite being appropriate as a flight -case, is extremely light-weight and can be comfortably carried on the back as a back-pack, by handles in the traditional manner, or by making use of the very shock-absorning wheels at one end to pull the case along.

The case is very slim and appears to be as compact as could be possible for such a large instrument.  However, as well as a considerable amount of storage space (including specific adjustable space too for numerous Contra and Bassoon crooks/bocals), this case will even carry a Bassoon as well!! Both the contra and the bassoon are completely suspended inside the case on highly shock-absorbing rubber blocks which clam-shell and lock the instruments/joints firmly in place when the case is closed. The barrier between the two halves is “space” – no need for any padding since the joints are completely locked into their suspended positions.

This case is a complete life-changer and will transform the ability of musicians to travel with the Contrabassoon – amazingly  with the option of absorbing the bassoon into the same case. The saving in weight and size/volume compared with the traditional alternatives is incredible.

This case can be made for the advertised price for any Contrabassoon that is a similar shape and size to that of a Mollenhauer. We can make a similar case for any contrabassoon no matter what shape, but this will be a “special order” and may not conform to the advertised price for this product.
