    Re: What's in your case?

    Looks like there are two schools of thought - either a case with just the horn and a couple other items, accompanied by a bag with everything else in it - or - a big case with horns and everything in it. I like everything in one case...never have liked carrying/keeping up with a separate mute/junk bag.

    Re: What's in your case?

    To the question, "which case?", I reply, "which horn?" They all have different cases.

    In the main gigging horn case, a ProTec, Mike Vax roller, I carry the Schilke B6L and the Stomvi Elite flugel, and their respective mpcs. The envelope sleeve on the outside will accommodate a music folder, valve oil, and reading glasses, but no mutes. I schlep a ProTec mute bag for that and it can ride the roller carefully. That roller case does great service to an old arthritic dude like me. But I have not tested it as checked baggage. I think that might just be a mistake.

    Conns: 2B ('48) 48B ('51) 58B ('32) 62B ('46 Pan Am) 80A ('53)
    Olds: Ambassador Cornet ('52) Ambassador Trumpet ('52)
    Kanstul/FBessons: 609; 709 Trumpets
    Martin: Deluxe Committee Model Trumpet ('52)
    Reynolds: Contempora Trumpet (LB) ('56) Contempora Cornet (LB) ('62)
    Schilke: B6L Trumpet (2009)
    Stomvis: Elite Flugelhorn; Elite Cornet; Forte Pocket Trumpet

    B-flat case has a horn, three mouthpieces, clothes pins,valve oil, slide grease, cleaner rod, and in the zippered side section, a music folder( rather packed, too). Cornet case has the horn and two mouthpieces( not much room for anything else). C case just has the horn and a place for a mouthpiece( I ditched the White gloves). Flugle case just has room for the horn and a mouthpiece( white gloves are there, but I just use them to wipe it down). I carry mutes, horn stand/s, oil, and a blitz cloth in a separate bag if needed

    Re: What's in your case?

    OK - here's your TMI: (this would be easier with fewer horns)

    The case I use mostly (BAM trekking - light and has lots of room) has Bb (lately Selmer 24B K-Mod), Curry 8.5TC mouthpiece, 1 or 2 bottles of valve oil, a microfiber cloth, a Hercules TravLite stand (not in the bell), a Wenge Facet mute (but not usually), a Korg tuner, a Best Damn Trumpet Lead Pipe Swab Period!, some eraser spacers (a la Jeanne Pocius) for between my rear upper and lower molars (for practice), and a toothbrush, and in the music pouch a copy of Vizzutti V.1 or 3, Shoemaker's Concone etudes, Mystery to Mastery (Greg Spence), and trumpet parts to Rachmaninoff's Vocalise and Ravel's Piece en forme de Habenera.

    If I decide on a different trumpet, or need the C, then I madly transfer stuff and never everything I need. If I want to use my Recording, I change cases too as the valve block's different location doesn't fit the BAM. I have two BAM casess, but keep the nice new one at home to sweeten a deal if I sell a horn.

    Cornet goes in a ProTec case w/2 mps (Stork 4A & Curry 8.5 Vintage), a Best Damn Trumpet Lead Pipe Swab Period! & the Hercules Travlite.

    Flug & cornet or trumpet in Protec PH 301F (great case for the $$), 3 or 4 mps, French taper lp in outside pouch (Bach taper in horn), oil, that damn swab. BTW, I CAN tell the difference in the way a horn plays before and after cleanng the leadpipe with Tim Wendt's great swab.

    Real Books and Stand/lights usually in trunk, usually leave them there. I clean my mouthpieces at home often.

    In the case
    - My Bach Strad 43*
    - My Bach 3C mouthpiece
    - A microfiber rag

    In the pouch
    - Bach 3D mouthpiece in a ProTec mouthpiece pouch
    - Korg Chromiatic Tuner and Korg Metronome
    - Sony Digital Voice Recorder
    - Hetman #1 valve oil, #7 slide gel, #8 tuning slide grease
    - HW Brass Saver cleaning brushes, mouthpiece brush, leadpipe swab
    - A pen and business cards

    My mutes are in a separate ProTec mute bag.

    Bach Stradivarius 43* (1974), Bach 3C Mouthpiece.
    Getzen 896 Eterna Flugelhorn (1974), Curry 3FL Mouthpiece.
    Plus a few other Bach, Getzen, Olds, Carol, and Besson horns.
