Though I like the BAM Softpack the Cavallaro Case Cover I've got includes a very useful side pocket.

But, this lamb's wool imitation it has for isolating the instrument for thermal shocks, won't be too much in hot days for the instrument?

I guess the BAM isolates pretty well from thermal shocks, but adding lamb's wool? Imagine the mouthpiece melt. Lol.

What's your opinion?

Regards,

JI

It acts as insulation. Unless the horn is producing heat, it will be cooler on a hot day inside the insulated volume.

Great. Thanks for the answer. I just have difficulty understanding the effects of the lamb wool... for cooling.... lol

You’re welcome. I used to have a Cavallaro cover on the Walt Johnson case for my Serie III tenor. Living in New Mexico, I found that it made a positive difference year ‘round - my horn didn’t get as hot in the summer, nor as cold in the winter. I really like it for that, the additional shock protection, bonus storage space, and good looks.
