The hard case that came with my trumpet does not have enough room to accommodate a stand, mutes, notebooks, some music, etc. So I’m looking for a case that will eliminate the need to bring along a second bag. I prefer something with rigid/semi-rigid construction, something that offers excellent instrument protection.

Look at a ProTec iPac double case. One slot for the trumpet, the other for mutes, valve oil, trumpet stand, etc.

Second that.

Or if you want something smaller, the JPro 851 double trumpet case. Padding is a little thinner, and it has no shoulder band, but it’s almost the size of a single case (and it has backpack straps).

The Protec PRO PAC Rectangular case has room for a trumpet, 3-4 mutes and a trumpet stand inside the case. There is a zippered pocket on the case (17"x10") for notebooks and music (minus the music folder).

Protec quality is excellent. I use a Protec PRO PAC Contoured case when I need one horn or a Propac IPAC Double case when I need two, and a MyMute Bag as my alternative to one case that holds everything.

I've been looking at the ProTec PRO PAC case but haven't pulled the trigger yet as the support for the trumpet seems lacking -- at least from the YouTube vids I've looked at.

The contoured PRO PAC case is excellent. I use mine all the time when I’m only taking one horn.

My only beef with Protec (and I have several) is the plastic mouthpiece holders. They leave a mark on some mouthpieces. I carry my Monette mouthpieces in a separate case and tuck that case in the storage pocket of the trumpet case. The mouthpiece locations in the old Bach cases were upholstered. I wish Protec would wise up about that.

Whatever the case, make sure you get one with wheels. From the looks of your inventory, you're going to need them.

Maybe not exactly what you're looking for, but I recommend the Gard Elite Triple case.

My everyday setup is Bb, C, piccolo, three stands, 4 mouthpieces, small bag of oil/grease/junk, earplugs, iPad, business cards, and extra room for other stuff as needed.

My alternate setup is Bb, flugel, two stands, mouthpieces, bag of oil/grease/etc., earplugs, iPad, business cards, mutes, mic, plexiglass, and extra room for a few other things.

I have been doing a "teaching setup" lately, which is Bb & piccolo or Bb and C plus stands, mouthpieces, oil/grease bag, drumsticks, practice pad, music folder, & lunch.

I've also done Bb, C, flugel, piccolo, stands for all, mouthpieces, oil/grease bag, iPad, etc.

Some people cram 5 horns in these cases. They are quite protective, lightweight, and well made. I use two "tacos" with mine.

I ordered a Pro Tec PRO PAC and will give that a try. I failed to mention that I wanted to be able to include my iPad PRO and that turned out to be a big factor. If I'm not happy with the Pro Tec I'll give the GARD Triple a try.
