This is a lightweight fiberglass case for a fixed bell double horn made by Marcus Bonna in Brazil. It is slightly larger in the bell flare area than the traditional style MB2 case. This allows for storage of a mute inside the horn's bell. In addition, the exterior music pocket is attached with a zipper instead of Velcro material, and a small music stand pocket is included. Other features are the same as the standard MB2.
The standard size MB2 and MB2N case is primarily designed for a horn with the Kruspe wrap, such as a Conn 8D, Hans Hoyer 6801/7801, Yamaha and Engebert Schmid. Larger geyer wrap horns such as the Hoyer G10, Lewis-Duerk LDx5, Atkinson and others are slightly larger and do not fit well. For those models, we recommend the extra large version of the MB2 or MB2N.
The heart of the case is its rigid fiberglass shell, which is coated with foam inside and out. The interior is lined with a plush nylon fabric and has several modular foam blocks to adjust the fit to your instrument. The nylon outside cover attaches to the shell via Velcro material, and is readily removed for cleaning, repair or repair or replacement. Closing the zippers ensures the case is reliably closed. Accessories included are double backpack straps, a single shoulder strap, a mouthpiece pouch and an ID tag. Replacement covers are available by special order to ensure that the case can be used for a lifetime.
The MB2N case has some small interior storage and a large external music pocket. The pocket is attached with zippers and also holds a small music stand.
The standard color is black nylon. If you'd like another color or a leather exterior, these can be had by special order.
