Flight Case for Double Bass
budget and higher quality styrofoam construction models
PMM Flight Case
At last a reasonably priced quality flight case suited for 3/4(+) size upright bass. Made of high impact 3cm sponge styrofoam and Oxford cloth surface, (similar to cello cases). This is a very strong case and has the advantage that it is also very light for size - only 9.6 kg! This makes it ideal for air travel in USA where new excess weight rule enforcement ban heavy fibreglass cases in some airlines.
It has pockets for manuscript, leads etc and internal storage for leads, resin and 2 bows.
light weight but strong styrofoam construction
Made especially to order in China for superior quality control (we can also supply a cheaper Chinese made case but most are not a universal fit and are suitable for a very limited range of basses, This case is of much better manufacture standard and is a universal fit case suiting a wider range of basses.
NZ customers we will contact you with NZ freight for approval before actioning purchase
Also available for rent on application
