 Re: One-piece full-boehm case?

How good are your woodworking and upholstering skills?

If you have the time, patience and skills (and access to a workshop and materials) the best solution is probably a home-made case made from marine ply (make a sealed box then cut the top off with a band saw to form the lid) covered in rexine with a high density foam nest which can be carved to retain each section, then the inside all lined with velvet.

Most craft shops will sell hinges, clasps and handles (and the shiny screws or nails to fit them with), and this way you can tailor make the case to be the size you want it to be, and with all the compartments where you want them.

I'm not sure what ready-made cases will fit a one-piece bodied clarinet and still be deep enough for the bell - certainly alto flute cases are too shallow which won't allow any room for the bell and soprano sax cases are either too long or the size of a cornet case for the curved ones.

Chris.
