    New Moulded Cases (Eb Bass)

    Thread Starter: m.f.cooper

    Hello tMp I have a very old tuba (1920s Boosey & Co.) whose original case has completely collapsed into nothing-ness. I would love to find a way of getting a proper moulded hardcase, with wheels!! Does anyone know of a company or individual who does this kind of thing? Cheers!

    New Geneva Mentor Cornet

    Bands need money to survive and we accept it from all sorts of different sources. The Cooperative movement has provided substantial funds over the years
