Solid--revised down from 5 to 3 starsJul 11, 2012
Note: closer examination and more use of the case revealed a serious flaw. Metal staples holding the slide partition in place can come into contact with the slide. The staples are located in a spot that comes into tight contact with the slide, potentially scratching the finish. I noticed this problem when I saw a loose staple sticking out. My solution was to pull out all of the remaining staples (around 6). This may result in the partition coming unglued. Will have to see how it holds up. This flaw, combined with the lack of storage space results in a 3/5 star rating.
-Solid case. No worries when packing it in the back of a van with a bunch of other instruments.
-Good value for the price.
-Includes D-rings so that a shoulder strap can be added.
-slide and bell fit very snugly inside the case.
-compact design doesn't take up much space.
-lid doesn't flex too much when opening. This is a good thing, since the slide is stored in the lid. (By way of contrast, BAM foam cases flex like crazy. Potential slide alignment problems might be more likely to arise with a BAM case than with this hard-shell SKB case. I have used a BAM case for several years with my bass and this makes me a bit nervous. No worries with SKB case.)
-King 3B fits perfectly.
-the two internal compartments are tiny. A mouthpiece in a pouch barely fits in either compartment.
-shoulder strap is not included
-leadpipe end of slide is very close to the bell throat, when the case is closed. A thick cloth or some extra padding is recommended to protect the bell from accidental damage. (Since I can't see inside when it is closed, I'm going to err on the side of adding extra padding.)
-this case is not as elegant as the new Yamaha cases that come with 891Z and 897Z trombones.
Conclusion: Hard cases are better than gig bags (aka Dent Bags). Whether you have a custom Shires or a pawn-shop special, I would recommend this well-built SKB case. Good product for a low price.
Solid Case. Just what I was looking forApr 16, 2013
By Terrence Hooker
This is a good case overall. I have carried a soft case for years and was looking for a hard case for my small bore tenor. This case does just the trick. There is limited storage inside the case, just to fit a mouthpiece, slide cream and a small water bottle. The storage is not a problem for me though because I'm usually carrying a mute bag.
Good Case, Not Enough StorageMay 01, 2012
This is a decent trombone case. It holds my King 3-B snugly. The only
problem I see is that there is very little storage. There are 2 compartments,
one will hold a small water bottle, and a bottle of "slide-0-Mix". The other
will hold a mouthpiece, barely. That storage lid does'nt close entirely flush,
and you can't even store your mouthpiece with a rubber cover. I bought a small zippered bag at Home Depot and attached it to a "D" ring on the case to hold
my extra stuff like glasses, etc. That seems to work ok. The case latches
are secure, but take some getting used to. They have a tab and slot configuration. Overall, a good alternative to a gig bag for keeping your
SKB Trombone CaseFeb 06, 2012
First of all I recieved the case on the date they said it would arrive plus I got a $10.00 discount off the price(thank you amazon). Second when I opened the box which was packed very well the case looked great feels solid & lightwight for a hard case the handle feels good on the hand. I order this case because of the SKB reputation plus I read the other reviews and I own 3 SKB rack cases. I like the O rings so you can put a strap on it which is not included as advertised it has 2 compartments with closing lids. I put my horn in it (King 2b) and it fits I also tried putting my other horn (King 3b) fits like a glove the case can only fit straight tenors and bells up to 8 inches as advertised. Ok the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because of the 2 compartments are shallow the first compartment near the bell has the mouthpiecs can't fit much more than that the second compartment near the tunning slide I have a small water bottle and slide O mix and the compartment barely closes all the way. If you buy this case I would recomend you get a small water bottle and a small container or bottle to put your slide cream or oil.
High Quality Case-Fits even a 1921 tromboune!Jan 01, 2012
By R. Koning
"Your opinions may differ"
This case is extremely sturdy and well padded inside. It has three compact and strong/secure latches and three hinges. The walls of the case are strong and the mating edges interlock nicely. There are two exterior loops for a carrying strap (but no strap was provided). Inside, the black velvet padding is suitably cushioning. The hinged separator between the two sections for a trombone is suitable designed that even my very old instrument fit into the case. It has two compartments with hinged lids and pull-tabs to hold a mouthpiece, tuner, oil, etc. The handle is comfortable for carrying, and the case can stand on the bell-end if needed. I'm really happy with this case.
