    When you take you're instrument out of the case and play it for a bit, only to find some new mystery scratch running down it. This has happened to me 3 times now with my new Bach and I know I didn't scrape it on anything. Is the case a possible problem? I've heard it could be from one person, but I'm not sure if I trust them. If if it is then that's incentive to buy a Torpedo Outlaw bag.

    Hey Lupin

    Do you put them in those "silver" bags, like Bach makes??

    I ask because I found one mysterious scratch on a new Fluegel...and as I investigated, I found the zipper of the silver bag had been in position to "touch" the horn, when it was closed in the case. Now I fold the zippers in some of the extra length of those bags to keep them from touching metal.

    If not...there's got to be something "loose" in your case.

    Lame sauce, I went back to the Arts building to practice again today and I felt around in my case where the horn goes. There was something under the fabric that must have been grinding against the horn. Epic fail on their part for putting out a case like that.
