I am awaiting on a 2 in 1 tenor/sop case made by Mike Manning in fiberglass. I have been looking for this combo case for 6 years!

If it were not for SOTW it would never have happened.

Review coming soon.:)

If you're ordering one new I definitely recommend going fiberglass. Specially on a heavy setting like this, fiberglass makes a huge difference.
I bought a fiberglass Manning. I am very happy with the case and have used it for at least 10 gigs. I am extremely lucky in that it was sold to me for $675. I had to jump on it because players do not let them go often.

I would share pictures if someone will remind me how to add pictures.

Last I talked to him in San Francisco he wasn’t making many of these anymore. I believe he bought parts from Asia and was assembling them here but it didn’t seem profitable given the time and labor it took. Making cases with a couple helpers was a better business. But this was a couple years ago. You could just email him and ask.

Great cases.He would make more money if he didn't insist you send him your horn!
(let me know when you want to sell this one)
Just saw this. I was extremely fortunate to have purchased this second hand although it was never used, so I didn't have to send my horns.

I waited 7 years to find a tenor/soprano combo case so I will sell it when I'm dead. :))))

I had a double case for Tenor and soprano and shipped him my horn to build the case around. Its a great case, a little heavy still even with carbon fiber. Got through 25 shows in 30 days in Korea and Japan, travelling to all the various venues by public transport, trains and flights.
