Overview

Traveling by air or your local club date is a breeze with the attached wheels and telescoping handle.
The Protec PB-301VAX trumpet combo case is the result of a yearlong design collaboration with the famed trumpeter, Mike Vax. After spending years on the road as a performer, Mike has learned first hand what features a professional musician needs and appreciates. With a compact exterior dimension of 22" x 12-1/2" x 9" inches, this trumpet case will comply with most airline regulations. The exterior pocket design holds sheet music and allows for secure attachment of the Protec M-400 Mute Bag (sold separately). Interior layout fits many musical instruments. One section of the case fits a Bb trumpet or C trumpet, and the second section of the case fits a flugelhorn, cornet, and a Eb/D trumpet or piccolo trumpet.

This case is the answer if you need a compact, relatively lightweight case for a trumpet and a flugelhorn.At first I had difficulty getting the flugel into the case, but I eventually found that you have to move the divider and lay the flugel in there flatter. I have a Jupiter 846 with a 6 inch bell and a King Flair. Once you lay the flugel nearly on its side and move the divider to separate it from the trumpet, the moveable foam inserts are not necessary and can get in the way. Once you remove them, there is additional space in the case main compartment for some small items like valve oil or a mouthpiece pouch and maybe a strait mute, but not much else. There are storage holes for two mouthpieces.The outer compartment will hold scores or books plus pens, cell phones, etc... There is also an attachment point for the Protec Mute Bag. The wheels and extendable handle will be a big help to all of you carrying those heavy weight horns. The rest of us can get by easily using just the carrying strap.This bag also has a very nice hard shell that prevents sharp object from denting the contents. My thanks goes out to Protec and WWBW.

Took this case on deployment to Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar. Protected it very well especially fastening it on a pallet to travel on several aircraft and helicopters. It kept the sand and grime out of the case in the 120+ degree temperatures. With that being said, when I returned stateside one of the small pieces of metal fell out of the hinge. I contacted the manufacturer and they sent a replacement. That one fell out, too. Also, the handles on the zippers that you use to open and close the case all came apart on me. I even switched to the other case that we had (we bought 2) and they came off, too. It makes it very hard to open and close it. That particular feature needs to be re-engineered. When you pull the zipper, there is a small opening where the piece was attached and with enough pressure and use, it will eventually open the gap and the piece will pull apart. Sorry for the description, it was very hard to describe. Hope this helps!

Comments about Protec Vax Trumpet Combo Case with Wheels:

I'm very disappointed in this case. I bought it a few years ago, and I've found that the wheels are too close together, it doesn't take anything for it to wobble; and the case is too narrow meaning that it won't hold a 1 1/2 inch binder of sheet music without constantly tipping over backwards. I had used the case to hold a trumpet and my mutes and other tools. It does this OK, but it isn't worth the money.

    Fine product for multiple horns. With the use of "in the bell" stands, everything but the mutes is covered.

      Saw this when it first came out. Needed a new case to reduce load on a damaged shoulder. Exceeds expectations, well built with only one "con" - it tips over if not balanced right.

      Comments about Protec Vax Trumpet Combo Case with Wheels:

      Overall really great case for my needs. Only concern is for the future wear and tear if zippers break. I'm only going by my past experience with luggage constructed with same material. Can one get zippers fixed if they break? I will be sure to stuff compartments so zippers will last. Other than that...very happy. Thanks so much.

        Great case!! It is very compact, sturdy, and easily holds my trumpet and Yamaha flugel. If you have a flugel much larger than the Yamaha models the case may not work for you. The pull handle and wheels are very handy. If you order the case also get the clip on mute bag.

          First, very fast service from Music 123. It arrived before I expected. First impressions are this is the most compact double case I've seen which will also provide very good protection for my instruments. Very sturdy construction. If you have an oversized flugel you may have problems. My Yamaha "Z" flugel and Kanstul 1600 b flat fit fine, and there is still room for small items on the flugel side of the case. I think I'm going to love it!
