Woodwind Cases & Gig Bags
All instruments are finely-crafted, delicate things - so there's nothing more important about owning one than making sure it's well taken care of when moving from place to place. The roads and sidewalks are full of unforeseen jostles and bumps, and the best way to keep your instrument safe from them is to have it well packed. Fortunately, with the selection of woodwind cases and gig bags you'll find right here, it's a total cinch to get the equipment you need to do just that. No matter what kind of woodwind instrument you play or where you plan to travel with it, there are cases in this section that will get the job done perfectly.
The first decision to make when picking out woodwind cases and gig bags is the amount of protection you need. Hard-shelled cases like the Buffet Crampon Pochette Clarinet Cases or the best-selling SKB-340 Rectangular Alto Saxophone Case are the most durable choices, which makes them perfect for demanding trips like long tours or air travel. On the other hand, if you're hopping in the car for a gig across town, you'll probably prefer the lighter weight and easier handling of a soft gig bag such as the Gator Spirit Series Lightweight Flute Case.
There is one other consideration beyond other instruments when travelling with woodwinds, and that's your reeds. Keeping them in the best possible condition takes a special breed of case, and you can find those here as well. The Rico Reed Vitalizer Kit might be the best-known example: it's a specialty storage bag designed to moisturize your reeds, and there are larger cases and refills available too, in case you want to handle multiple reeds at once. Most reed cases, like the Selmer Reed Case for instance, have a glass plate inside to protect against warping so your reeds stay flat and playable.
With all the choices waiting to be discovered here, it's safe to say you can find the right woodwind cases & gig bags for your needs no matter what those needs may be. Pack up your instrument and your reeds for a quick drive across the city or a long-term trip around the country - it's all possible when you have cases that are ready to take on the task.
