Ultra-compact, lightweight, hard, oval-shaped screw-bell French horn case. Hinged along its length, securely suspending both the horn and the bell along with up to three mutes, accessories and music. Unbelievably small; designed to fit under pretty much all airplane seats and overhead bins.
These cases come in a stunning range of exterior colors which highlight the beautiful grain of the wood. Wiseman uses the highest grade of birch ply and most durable varnish to protect it. This style of case allows for ease of maintenance and fantastic longevity. Secured with a pair of steel hinges and catches at both ends. The neoprene seal ensures perfect protection from heavy rain. Featuring two replaceable padded leather handles and replaceable protective leather edging.
This case opens as two perfectly even halves and can be used on your lap in confined spaces. This case also makes a fantastic seat!
