I'm intrigued by the Monette memory foam case but I can't find it on their web site. Does anyone have a link for this? Thanks.

It's not in the most intuitive-to-find spot on their website - Click on "Instruments" (not the drop-down menu options), then scroll to the bottom of the page after Bb, C, etc. options, then click on Instrument Cases:

https://www.monette.net/instrument-cases

That said, these are really only available to Monette clients, as they are custom made for specific Monette models. They're the best cases in the world. They're not cheap.

Thanks, Daniel!

$625.00, ouch. No wonder I was interested in them. LOL.

Drop in the bucket for a horn that's 10 G's. My Strad is resting comfortably in my ProTec case....lol.

625 is the same as other high end cases! Wiseman, Torpedo etc ... you can get cheaper Torpedos, but when you choose leather, as the Monettes are made of, the price is steep! Great cases, though

I don’t know, that price doesn’t really seem terribly out of line, depending on how good it really is. For example, Torpedoes in leather are close to that.

Plus, I would not expect anything from Monette to be bargain- priced.

I have 2 of these cases. The single case works well. I stopped using it because it's so nice on the outside and I play in some not so nice places. The case needs to protect the trumpet and it does. What do I use to protect the case?

The double case is the same thing. I use it here and there. It's a little heavy if you need to go any distance. I don't have another double case. A lot of times when I need two trumpets, I need a third so I use a different case.
