Hard tubular case, folding open along its length. Fully assembled flute on one half, with assembled Clarinet on the other, with small storage compartment. Can be fully velvet-lined, or suspended and featuring metal clasps mounted at each end of the case to hold it closed. Fits all wooden piccolos and metal flutes.
Very strong – maximum protection from shock-absorbing rubber blocks/bed, preventing relayed shock through the case that occurs with traditional wooden blocking. N.B. both instruments are firmly held in place; they cannot rattle or rotate or fall out when the case is opened.
Embedded or suspended?
With many instruments, there is the option to either support them/each joint in a velvet-covered foam rubber bed, with a soft cushion on top, or to suspend each joint/s in the same shock-absorbing materials, but held from each end.
Suspended has the advantage of ensuring that all keywork hangs in open space and does not even require a cushion to sit on top of the mechanism.
Embedding the joints is well worth considering where extremely high levels of insulation are needed to protect against severe temperature changes.
With either system, Wiseman ensure that there is no pressure on any keywork and that the mechanism is free as if playing the instrument.
