Superfine Handcrafted Cases

40 years of experience come together as a new company designing and crafting leather cases for musical instruments using the world’s best materials.

What We Do

We make leather and Cordura cases for musical instruments using top-notch materials. We currently offer cases for Trumpet, Flugelhorn, Trombone, Tuba, and Euphonium; and we can make cases for other instruments on request. We also make accessories like straps, trombone slide inserts or cases, and mute bags.

We design and build cases for unusual instruments or for musicians with particular requirements. Contact us for custom cases.

We repair hand-sewn cases from any maker — Superfine, Reunion Blues, Glenn Cronkhite, Götz, Altieri, and other custom bag makers.

Superfine Handcrafted Cases

Superfine cases are made by hand in our shop in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our craftsmen, Tom and Adolfo, do all the pattern-making, measuring, cutting, hammering, and stitching right in the shop. When you buy a Superfine Handcrafted Case you can be sure you are getting a superior product made right here in California.

We carry a variety of leather cases in stock. You can also order a case for your particular instrument in your choice of material and color.

We are proud of the materials that we have chosen to go into each Superfine case. We use steel hardware with a bright nickel finish. We have never used plastic hardware and we never will. We also use YKK zippers. YKK’s new Racquet Coil “RC” zipper is specially designed for luggage applications where resistance to abrasion is a must. We use an advanced polyurethane foam that is both lightweight and resistant to compression to provide better protection against impacts than our competitors’ cases. And we only use industrial-grade multifilament v138 thread in our shop.
