Flight case for rudy 5/4 CC

Postby daflyingtubaman » Sun Jun 10, 2018 3:35 pm

I'm in need of a flight case for my 5 valve rudy 5/4 CC tuba. It's just so huge that most cases wouldn't fit it. Does anyone have one to recommend or someone that could custom-make one for my horn's measurements?

I might have something I’m willing to part with. Can you send me some basic measurements (approx. length/width/height, and bell diameter) to fenne1ca AT gmail DOT com. I have a couple of different flight cases, and only really need one. Let’s see if we can’t set you up!

"Flight case" - for many of us - is an extraordinary definition which must meet extraordinary requirements.
Most any truly-6/4-size case will contain that instrument..."flight" quality or not.

My Rudy 5/4 BBb fits nicely into my Unitec case. The case is heavy as Hell but seems to offer good protection.

If you don't mind heavy, and really want "flight", advertise for a Walt Johnson 6/4 fiberglass in wanted to buy.
