I got a brand new Eastmandoublecase today (xmas gift) and will be sending it back. The case looks nice and is extremely compact, but the latches are not secure at all! They are so loose I can pull them off with my fingers and with some light shaking they fall off.
The latches are very cheap and only a small nib is holding them closed. If they were farther apart with more tension it might be OK, but still doesn't seem very secure.
It was only $160 plus shipping. I have a few trombone friends (yeah...) who like their Eastman cases, but this case just isn't safe.
