I am in need of a set of Anvil cases for Soprano, Alto and Tenor. I would prefer individual cases for transportation convenience. These will be trucked as well as flown via commercial airliner, so they absolutely must be highest quality.

Anyone have suggestions on where to acquire these, or should I just go straight to Anvil and order them? Any alternative manufacturers I should consider? I had a case from Modern Case Company - which was incredible - and now I need to replace it, but they seem to have gone out of business...

Additionally, if anyone has any of these for sale, I'd be interested.

Peace,
John

Anvil or Calzone will make the case to your specs. I had one made for my tenor. Great case.

Go straight to Calzone. I have had some great cases made for my horns by them. They do excellent work. Its nice to travel and not worry about my axes getting damaged.

question

Out of curiosity (since I can't decide myself)....Are you doing a case in a case? For Example....put your standard case/gig bag into the calzone/anvil?

There are quite a few companies that make them, probably within your own state as well. Make sure to get them to ATA specs.

Hey Isley, if you havn't found cases yet, call me and I'll hook you up with Sherman Irby. He just had some cases made in Jersey. My phone# is in the 802 book, or email me through my websight.

Root International was one I was talking to about Anvil Cases. They seemed to know their stuff. They are in South Florida.

Last time I bought a Anvil, I bought it from them directly. But that was 20+ years ago. Here's their website.

Calzone is their east coast distributor. The website lists both east and west contact info.

Indestructible case by the way !

That's what I did too. I went straight to the company. They were very helpful. They didn't have a pattern for my horn, so they walked me through tracing the horn and creating a pattern.
