Compact, elegant and rugged. This is a hand-sewn leather case you can use for years with confidence and style.
BAM, French maker of ultra-fine instrument cases, has really gotten this one right. They created their own polyurethane foam to mold the interior – it holds your oboe in suspension within the case. Their own custom molds have been meticulously designed to fit your professional oboe.
The exterior is made of handsewn leather over tough ABS with an anti-scratch PMMA film, providing years of protection from scuffs and scrapes. It’s weather resistant, water resistant and quite beautiful. The triple-ply structure has a full Airex/PVC foam core for rigidity and extreme light weight. It provides excellent resistance to shocks and temperature changes.
In addition, the case is equipped with a rigid PVC “male/female” seal. Shaped under heat, this seal ensures a hermetic closure and contributes to the rigidity of the case when it is closed. Two built-in stealth locks provide a secure final touch.
This case comes in at a startlingly light 2.5 pounds The outer dimensions are 17.3″ x 7″ x 3 3/4″. The interior instrument cradles measure – upper joint: 10.2″, lower joint: 10.6″, bell: 5.2″ which will fit most pro brands including Loree, Fox, Rigoutat, Marigaux, and many others.
