Decent case required for Baritone Treble Aeola

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

My Baritone Treble Aeola came in a modern case but the case is on the big side and there are things I don't like about it, so I am trying to find something more suitable.   Can anyone point me in the right direction?    

 

I should add I live in the UK.

Rich, I've had really good luck with the Pelican/Hardigg cases ... they're polymer and you may have to get creative with the inside, depending on whether or not you want bellows compression, etc.  They come with a customizable open-cell foam.  I usually keep the 'tina in a protective silk or velvet bag for additional finish protection.  Since they're virtually unbreakable and good water protection, I'd have a look.

I second that - however the well-known size can surprisingly house even a TT Aeola, but that is exactly it.

 

Don‘t know if there‘s a still handy larger size...

Would you care to provide a pic or some of  the instrument in the look-like thread Rich? I would love to get an impression of your newly acquired BT!

 

Best wishes - 🐺

I have made my own  hard cases  from  plywood....  the one  for the Baritone/Treble  is made from 5mm  thick plywood  and is strong enough to sit on.  I had  thought to cover it with leather  like the  original  case, it being the same shape  , but  it is fine with a coat of  water proof varnish.  Another case for two trebles  is  made just the correct length  for  a comfortable  seat  when turned on end.  Bellows blocking    and  internal storm collar   included.  

So, my recommendation is  to make your own.

 

You could try Chris Algar  who sometimes has  original cases  for sale.

It may just come to that Geoff but it would be the last resort for me as I'm not that good at that sort of thing.    I have already asked Chris.

Steve Dickinson just built a top-quality leather-case for my bass-Aeola! If you want the best;-)
