    I have a Bach Strad here at home for eveluation.:-) After playing it for several days, I do not expect to buy it (yet).:-( However, I am really impressed by the case.:D Wooden frame covered in waterproof cloth of some sort and a velour blanket to cover the top of the horn. I would be interested in buying one of these cases (sans the Bach emblems) if such is available. I don't like soft sided "gig bags".:-(
    Any thoughts?

    I know a fellow who made this nice aluminum case for himself . It only took him several days in his friends shop. My case is getting old and its made of wood covered with the leather stuff. I also don't like the soft cases. You could buy a case made of plastic. If you got the skill I could get you the measurements of making an aluminum case. Buying a case online is expensive.Most cases online are made of plastic and cloth.

    this one looks nice

    Horntrader has the old and new style Bach Stradivarius cases for sale for very reasonable prices: Cases: HornTrader
    Check wwbw.com (woodwind/brasswind) out as well, they may have some of the newer cases as well. Otherwise, ebay may have a few up for auction.

    It is a Gladstone Deluxe case.

    I suppose the company that manufactures them is ....Gladstone.

    They are plentiful, affordable, and easy to find.

    There are soft sided jobbers that are actually cases. Pro-tech cases look soft but are very protective.
