(PRICE REDUCED)

This is a Wiseman London A trumpet/flugel triple case in leather and wood. It is not a bendy gig bag, it is a sturdy hard case wrapped in leather. You set it up to hold your horns in suspension, cradled by dense foam blocks. The case comes with a wide variety of blocks shown in the picture, for Bb/C/Eb, Flugel (small and large), piccolo trumpet, and one blank (uncut) block. It also comes with an external leather music pouch, internal leather separator for keeping mutes from bouncing around, and a soft leather square (for polishing maybe?)

I got this case used. There's a bit of character in the leather (i.e. scuffs), but on the whole it's in fabulous shape, and given that it's real leather you can treat the scuffs to get it looking even nicer. The velcro that wraps the two sides of the handle is shot -- easy to replace with a bit of sewing, or you can ignore it as I did. One of the picc blocks is torn---a little duct tape or some plumbers caulk would fix it up fine, or you can order new blocks from Wiseman.

It has sturdy hooks for backpack straps, and includes pretty basic (i.e. uncomfortable) matching leather straps. I'd personally recommend getting some cheap but comfier backpack straps from Amazon for $10.

New, these currently go for £645 ~= $861 before shipping from the UK. I'm asking $400 + shipping (Continental US only).
