    I have a Bach Quad trumpet case and I have a Schilke Quad case -- the Schilke is not in IMO good condition.

    I have had many surgeries on both of my wrists and I have trouble lugging around the Quad trumpet case with my Bb and C trumpet.

    I have been looking on EBay for a double trumpet case.....

    I am seriously looking at this case -- Schiller Double Trumpet Case | eBay


    Anybody have an opinion one way or the other??

    It might be worthwhile looking into a wheeled case.

    Regards, Stuart.

    Or getting one of those small two wheeled dollies for luggage.

    I was going to suggest the very same thing. Matter of fact, I've contemplating a roller case myself.

    Gard triple wheelie. Although you're needing a double case, you could use the space for the third trpt for accessories instead so you don't have to schlep them seperately. And since you're wheeling the case, you wouldn't even notice the additional weight of the accessories. Endorsed and used by Jens Lindemann

    +1 for gard. I have the Flugel/trumpet and the section on the front opens out nicely to fit everything in. I do mean everything. Plus there is the pull-out stand so it doesn't tip when accessing the horns AND it has the super awesome rain cape AND it has wide wheels and back pack straps. As well there are some metal D-rings on the sides incase you want the clip on even more crap!
    Cool bag. I like mine.
    It is too big, however, for carry-on.
    For a hardshell double I like the slick Yamaha that comes with the xeno c.

    Yeah, the Yamaha is much smaller.
