    It looks like I may be getting a new cornet that is supplied only in a gigbag and as my insurer is leery about gigbags I will have to buy a hard case for it or change insurers.

    Has anyone got any case suggestions? The interweb-thingy has been particularly unhelpful in this respect...

    I need something that will hold a K&M cornet stand and 3 mutes as well as the instrument itself.

    Hi Andy,
    Have you tried Virtuosi.Shaun has some very good cases for all types of instruments.I have bought a couple of cornet cases for a band and found them to be excellent.I have one of his cases for my flugel.It is very robust and is waterproof.It also has a zip pocket on the outside for music etc.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I'll keep an eye out for a decent pic of one. The one on the Virtuosi site is rather small...

    I also managed to get a dent in my bell when using a gigbag (one of the ones that looks like a surfboard!) - was not best impressed! Can kind of see your insurers point about them....

    Had a very good conversation with them this morning and the upshot is that I can use a gig bag provided it's one of those that has a hard subshell, i.e something else besides the normal 20mm of foam.

    So that opens the game up a bit - I do believe Pro Tec fall into this category but unless I'm mistaken they don't make a cornet bag - and GIG themselves apparently make one with an EVA subshell (whatever that is).

    Hopefully someone will be along soon to let me know which makes of gig bag are re-inforced!
