Glenn Cronkhite DBS Small Double Trombone Case in Black Leather

$585.00

Item Details

The Cronkhite DBS  is a very lightweight leather soft case with wood reinforcements and firm foam for tenor and alto trombone, even two tenor trombones if you are careful.  (Cordura shown in photos.)  Made in Minneapolis, MN, USA.  Choose from available colors in the drop-down menu.

This is a very lightweight case, about 6 pounds.  Size is 10x10x38".  If the leather is in your budget, it makes the case much stiffer, though it adds weight.  The Cordura nylon case is a bit more flexible if you're overfilling the case with your horns, which is what we do.

We like the rounded edges and soft fabric of the Cronkhite when carrying.  It's more comfortable on my back than a rigid case with its square edges.  Owning a DBS case for 20 years, it's still firm and protective and beautiful and incredibly useful, with no instrument damage.

Both ends have wooden disks for bell protection.  The hand slides fit diagonally across the middle and have a wood stiffening board in the slide sleeve.  Two Velcro straps secure the hand slides.

Though designed to fit a tenor trombone with F-attachment and an Eb alto trombone, the case fits several different combinations if you're careful.  Maximum recommended bell size is 9"/8", but we have fit 9.5"/8.5" without problems.  A small Bb tenor trombone may fit as well as an alto.  A compact wrap bass trombone may fit as well, vintage Conn 62H/70H, etc.
