Glenn Cronkhite Trumpet Cases

Glenn Cronkhite is the master case maker. His new line of cases is hand made in Berkeley, California. Glenn is the former case designer of Reunion Blues. He made the patterns for all the Reunion Blues cases that were made in San Francisco. With the RB factory closed, Glenn is again making new cases, either the same as the old RB cases, or improved. We have many styles in stock, including many no longer available from Reunion Blues, and all of these are much higher quality cases. Please call for price and availability on other styles.

Eastman Trumpet Cases

Single Trumpet This new hard case for a single trumpet is stylish, light, protective, and cheap - all good. Made in China of painted fiberglass, it owes its heritage to the Walt Johnson style of case. While not totally indestructible, we think it's great for the money. Includes removable shoulder strap. Rubber feet protect the finish when you put it down.

4.2 lbs., 22x7x7"

 

$120
Double Trumpet This is a really sleek little double case.  It's smaller than most single cases, has a glossy hard plastic shell, backpack and single shoulder straps, double handles, 3 latches, and a lush velour interior.  It may not be indestructible, but we've seen no cracking or breaking so far, and it should be able to handle all your hand carrying luggage needs.  Often in stock in black and silver, also available in a rainbow of colors in just a few days.  This also works fine with a single trumpet, and you can carry your mutes and stand in the other half of the case.  There is not a lot of extra storage space, but a removable double mouthpiece pouch is included.  Has rubber feet on two edges.  These cases are painted, so they can scratch.  I've found that a scratch can be buffed out with some silver polish and a soft cloth, or touched up with a felt pen.  On the other hand, who doesn't mind a few road wounds on their well traveled case?

Marcus Bonna Trumpet Cases

Marcus Bonna cases are the some of the most compact and protective trumpet cases on the market. They are lightweight, made of rigid fiberglass and have replaceable nylon or leather coverings.

We try to keep a stock of black cases at all times, but call us if you want something specific.

Triple Trumpet Beautiful case design by Marcus, this triple trumpet case is the best for around the town gigging and ideal for orchestral trumpeters. The outer shell is constructed from layered fiberglass, giving solid protection while being lightweight. The coverings can be had in nylon fabric or leather and are removable to be replaced in the event the cover is damaged. The interior provides customizable foam pads that allow you to adjust this case to fit your horns, despite the make and model.

Compact Triple Trumpet This will also hold 3 full size Bb trumpets, but is in a case nearly as small as the double trumpet case.  Used by many players for two trumpets and a piccolo.  One insert is removable to allow the carrying of the third Bb trumpet.  There is little extra storage space in this case compared to the standard triple, but it's very compact for travel and ingeniously made.

Quad Trumpet By far our most popular selling case. Each is handmade in Brazil by Marcus Bonna. This sturdy case is the ticket for trumpet players who travel and want an indestructible case for their horns and hates to leave anything at home. The outer shell is hard fiberglass, nylon or leather outer fabric, rigid dividers, several strap options, and many Velcro pads to customize the case to your needs. The interior pics show two Bb trumpets, a piccolo, and barely visible is a D trumpet where the pad is pulled up to show its bell. This case also fits four Bb trumpets fine. Can be modified to fit  2 trumpets and a flugel. Backpack straps included.

Compact Quad Trumpet New for 2013 is a slightly smaller and lighter version of the quad trumpet case.  All four trumpets fit side by side as in the laptop case, but the depth of the case is less.  This may not be as good a fit for players wishing to transport a flugelhorn in place of two of the trumpets.  We will add pictures and a full review sometime...

Single trumpet gig bag

Black nylon construction with side pocket, shoulder strap, replaceable plastic stiffening sleeves, very nice case for little money. C238 $60
Triple trumpet gig bag

 

You can squeeze a Bb, a C, and a flugel in it, though it's a tight fit. Works best for Bb, C, and piccolo, or one trumpet and flugel. Somehow Dennis Farias got a cornet in there too. Has many exterior pockets, and an organizer. Similar capacity to the standard triple trumpet bag from Cronkhite but is bulkier. Similar to the old gig bag marketed by Selmer but made with much better materials. Black nylon, made in China by ProTec. Most excellent zipper access to the foam layer on the outside of the case, so you can replace the foam without seeing your local sewing shop. Removable mute bag, includes two shoulder straps.

First interior picture at left is two Bb trumpets and a piccolo in the middle. The second interior picture is one Bb trumpet, one flugel, and one piccolo in the middle. Tight fit, but it works.

6.3 lbs., 26x12x14"

Vax doubler's travel case

 

Designed by trumpeter Mike Vax, this case holds a trumpet and flugel, same size as above case, also includes wheels and retractable handle, perfect for airline travel, black nylon with zipper closure, accessory pocket, may travel as checked baggage if necessary, though the case may wear faster. PB301VAX $175

I-Pac Triple Trumpet Case

Taking a cue from Marcus Bonna, this new Protec case holds three trumpets, or one trumpet and one flugel.  Includes several foam blocks with Velcro attachment to customize the fit.  Dividers also attach with Velcro, and are adjustable.  Includes wheels, retractable handle, exterior pockets.  Looks like the Vax case, but about 20% larger. IP301TWL $185

I-Pac Double Trumpet Case

Same as the above, but for two trumpets.  We order the standard model without the wheels and handle. It's a small enough case that those extra parts can just add to the heft. However, if you're carrying many other items, or are particularly petite, we're glad to get the wheel and handle version. It only costs $15 extra. Inside features plush foam and Velcro attached padded inserts.  External zipper pocket.  Plastic frame with nylon covering. IP301D $160

Small Trumpet Mute Bag

Small nylon mute bag with zipper closure, metal hardware, and shoulder strap.  7x9x5"  Clips to any case. M400 $28
Large Trumpet Mute Bag

Protec's Trumpet Mute Bag with Modular Walls is designed to be next to the horn player during a performance. It allows quick access to mutes, and the padded bottom keeps mutes from making a noise when dropped in. Large exterior accessory pocket, adjustable shoulder strap, and a stretchy water bottle pocket complete the package.

Exterior dimensions: 9x15x10.5"

Contour Single Trumpet

 

 

Single trumpet case made of ABS plastic with metal trim, valance, latches, and feet.  Firm Styrofoam innards covered with soft cloth which can be custom formed to your trumpet as necessary.  Single handle and D-rings for shoulder strap (not included).  Inside storage space for 2 mouthpieces, but little else.  Very light and compact for travel.  Lifetime guarantee. SKB130 $90
Rectangular Single Trumpet

Similar to above case, but larger rectangular shape.  Does not have metal feet.  But, it is stackable, and has a bit more storage space.  Includes D-rings for shoulder strap (not included).  Can fit one straight mute, possibly a small stand, and other accoutrements.  I recommend putting small items in a bag, as individually they may get lost in a large slot that goes underneath the foam panel supporting the trumpet.  Lifetime guarantee.
