Raw Brass Cases are Durable!
Would you do this to your trumpet case?
I couldn't resist the temptation! I have dropped my Armor trumpet case from 4 to 5 feet in the air (with my horns in it) to prove to my customers that it is an awesome case. I have thrown it across rooms. But, today, I put the case to the real test.
I tried to just drive onto the case, but my bumper kept pushing the case forward. I ended up driving onto a 4x4 piece of wood first, and then onto the case. As my wife sat in the car, I snapped the pictures.
No, I wasn't crazy enough to run over the case with the horns in it, but they slipped in perfectly afterwards. The top middle of the case bent down about 2/3 of an inch in the middle as the car tire sat on it (the front of the car is the heavy end), but it did not go down far enough to damage the horns. The sides did not give at all as the tire pulled onto the top of the case. The car sat on the case for about 5 minutes while I took the pictures WITH NO DAMAGE TO THE CASE! The case I used I have used for the past 6 months. I should be able to continue using it for many years to come.
It was awesome! Look at the pictures. I could have left my horns in the case! Finally, I told my wife to back up. When the front tire came off of the case, the case flipped and jammed under the front spoiler. She kept backing up, ripping the spoiler and bumper from the car. The case is fine...my Chevy TrailBlazer needs to be fixed!
The Armor trumpet case has to be the best case out there for protecting your trumpet investment. I will be happy to build a case for you too!
