Probably the smallest French horn case in the world. Extremely light and incredibly strong. Extremely compact design – ideal for use with air travel. Perfect for stowage in overhead bins or underneath any seat. Fully adjustable interior with minimal unutilised space.
Lifetime Guarantee. Featuring the strongest Autoclave Carbon Fibre, with stainless steel Yacht locks (supplied with keys) and hinges, Carbon up-stand and waterproof neoprene perimeter seal.
Two sizes available. Model A is our standard size. Model B is 1 inch wider and will accommodate horns with larger wraps.
When ordering, please state which horn you currently own and we can advise on the size.
Easy adjustment system to support and suspend any horn shape/size on velevt-covered shock-absorbing rubber blocking. The horn is equally supported from rubber blocking that gently clamps down from the lid when the case is closed.
The bell is supported on a shock-absorbing 12mm thick velvet-covered board for maximum protection. This board holds the bell and hinges open; still containing the bell within the case and avoiding the need to put it down outside of the case.
Designed specifically to be a very hard, light case, avoiding any straps that could put pressure on the horn’s wrap in the event of an accident, to avoid having to remove the bell from the case before the horn wrap, and with no zippers or other breakable parts.
This case will hold three mutes (Straight, stopper and practice), three mouthpieces (more housings for this can be added if requested), and three brush/pencil holding holes.
Supplied with an internal velcro-mounted removable leather accessory bag, two leather shoulder straps and pads, two removable padded leather handles (which will rip off if caught on something during travel) and a large removable A3-sized leather music pocket on outside of the case, secured against the flat bottom panel (against the back when carrying as a back-pack) with heavy duty poppers on each corner. This will hold at least an inch-thickness of music if required.

Model A: 6 lbs unlaquered (6.3 lbs lacquered). 51cm x 36cm x 13cm (21cm at foot of case and 24cm at highest point of depth).
