|Curious - does anyone have a Walt triple for trumpet, flugel & piccolo?
This would be trumpet & flugel in the bottom shell and picc in the top shell, where the accessories box would normally be located.
He used a bottom shell for the top on this design for more room.
I know there were a few made where the picc had to be a short-bell model, and that fit where the Harmon mute & small accessory hole were. A very tight fit. Bob Findley has one like that.
I have one as described above, and it's my go-to case when I have to use those three horns and any kind of traveling.
I had seen one at a NAJE conference in the early 2000s. The one I have I found on eBay in 2005. Got it for $250 & shipping.
I know Walt made some custom interiors to hold up to 4 trumpets of various keys.
Just curious if anyone else has one of these. I know the new Walt's will soon be available, no idea if they'll make a case like I have.
