Woodwinds

We don't really have much of a woodwind department, as we are brass instrument specialists.  But, we're happy to provide you with a custom case made by Glenn Cronkhite in Berkeley, CA.  Glenn is a good friend, and makes the most beautiful cases in the world.  If you've seen the old cases from Reunion Blues of San Francisco, you've seen some of Glenn's work.  With the move of RB to China, Glenn is the obvious choice for those desiring an artful case.

We're also glad to order SKB cases, which ship in one week, and Bam France cases, which can be hard to get, but we'll put you on the list.  We're also a dealer for ProTec cases and Walt Johnson flight cases.  Do call with any requests.  For other woodwind needs, we recommend Long Beach Woodwinds, owned by the great saxophonist Rusty Higgins, ph. 562 421 0509. It's next door to our Long Beach store.

Cases

Glenn Cronkhite

Handmade lightweight cases from Berkeley California, formerly made under license by Reunion Blues. With RB's move to China, these Cronkhite cases remain the real deal for a top quality custom soft case. All are made from very firm foam, velour lining, gold plated steel hardware, and either thick leather or heavy cordura outer fabric, with leather trim. Lightweight and stylish, these protect your horn much better than other gig bag type cases. Glenn says: "The first repair to your horn because of buying the cheap case is more expensive than the cost of the better case."

Colors:

Leather:  Black, Dark Chocolate Brown, British Tan, Red, Dark Green, Dark Green

Cordura:  Black, Burgundy (Wine), Dark Blue, Forest Green, Hunter Green,  Call for availability.
