Flight Case for Double Bass

budget and higher quality styrofoam construction models

PMM Flight Case
for 3/4 size double bass

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.
The case has wheels so that rolling it along is simply a matter of leaning the case towards you and pushing or pulling it.

It has pockets for manuscript, leads etc and internal storage for leads, resin and 2 bows.
multiple handles make maneuvering the case a breeze even for a small person
This is the safest way to transport your bass on an airplane or truck. It is still light and easy to handle, but even if it falls over the bass will be unharmed. Actually less likely to be harmed with this case than a fibreglass case!
