    He could be very well playing in the box - cornet case muffled mute - must be awesome, right?

    That must be first ever mute to put the trumpet in, instead of putting the mute in the trumpet :-?

    One doesn't say what he was playing outside the box ... or even if it was the instrument inside the box.

    First it would be very awkward to hold the box IF playing the instrument, and second he would have to have electronic remote to operate the valves and slides as would be possible in today's scientific world, but not very probable, nor economically feasable.

    I find very few hard cases as are truly HARD and much more durable and protective than most gig bags. Most look like they've been bashed around by gorillas, but alas they were only students or air line baggage handlers.

    Only if he places a hole at the other end; otherwise he will be playing inside the box or truly playing "in". This would of coures make him a part of the "in" crowd which is not a bad thing either:

    I am not sure if you would play this or "milk it". In any event, I am pretty sure the case in the picture would not fit this instrument. The example you post would need a stable to contain it.
