Fitting a Soft Case to Your Tuba
Tubas come in all sizes and flavors, as you know. We have patterns for a few common tubas and keep a few Cordura versions in stock in various colors. But for all other tubas, we will send you instructions on how to measure your tuba and then make your case to order.
We Make Two Styles of Tuba Case
The first is a classic Side-loader. The two-thirds zipper allows the case to be opened up while on a flat surface like the floor or a table. Insert the bell of your tuba and then wiggle the rest of the horn in. Once you zip it, you are ready to go. You can transport it using the handles or backpack straps. There is a large pocket to carry your music, and a D-ring near the bottom bow lets you hang the case when not in use (and empty).
The second case we make is a Top-loader. As you can probably guess, this case loads from the top. Unzip the lid and flip it all the way open. Lean the open case against a chair, table, wall, or nearby trumpet player. The case will stay upright and wide open. Lower your tuba into the bag and re-zip. It is that easy! This case also gives you the choice of handles or backpack strap for transporting it and also has the secret lower bow D-ring.
