New innovative light-weight designs made from 100% Carbon-Fibre or GRP/Kevlar/Carbon Fibre mixture

Supplied by luthier Roy Courtnall at lowest prices - that's a promise!

(I will always beat any other genuine quote you may find.)

The latest addition to the Headcase range of cases is the hard Double Bass Case:

Model One:  100% Carbon-Fibre Case weighing 16 kg.

Model Two: Hybrid Case (Mixture of Carbon-Fibre, Glass Fibre and Kevlar) weighing 22 kg.

Very strong, yet light-weight case for total protection. The case is supplied with heavy duty nylon castors (80 mm diameter) for easy movement and it has handmade leather handles.

Headcase Double Bass Cases are available to accommodate 3/4 to full size instruments - Whatever size your Bass is, you are welcome to send me a template (just draw round the instrument onto a sheet of paper) and I will arrange for the factory to customise your case internally to ensure a snug fit, at no extra charge!

All Headcases are made to order, and this takes about two or three weeks.
