WTB Hard Shell Tuba Case for Yamaha YBB-321 or compatible

Postby tubbytuba » Mon Apr 23, 2018 2:42 pm

Looking to buy a case for an old Yamaha/Holton YBB-321.
Looking for something in decent condition. Handles and wheels can generally be replaced, but a cracked shell would be a no-go.

I'm in South Florida, so if you are in the area that would be convenient.

If you can get the case to an Amtrak station, their shipping fees are very reasonable.

Not interested in any gig bags, etc.. Need something that will protect the instrument from damage. Those nylon-cloth covered hard foam cases might work too, like the ones Mack brass ships.

Bump.
I need to find a hard shell case for a Yamaha YBB-321, and the sooner the better.
Any leads on where to find a case for a reasonable price would be appreciated.
The only option I am aware of would be a new SKB case for around $600.
Is there anywhere that would sell used tuba cases?

Thanks,

-Stu

If you haven't yet, I'd suggest contacting local schools or colleges since this is a popular model for them to buy. Perhaps they have a case left over.

I have one of the foam/nylon cases for my tuba. I am not impressed with its design and durability, (wheels, hinges, zippers, etc...). I am not sure if others have had the same issues. I am almost ready to build my own or at least build a shell around the one I have. I would be skeptical about them.

fyi

This is the MTS case - they want $599 but sign up for their email and they usually will every month send you a 20% or 25% off code. At 20% off you are at $380 plus it's free shipping. Even if you find a used one on here that's in good ready to use condition you can expect to pay $275 to $325 or so -plus a $100 to ship or a total of $375 -425.
