If you have purchased a Clarinet that is lacking the Clarinet Case, I could presume two things:
- It wasn’t from Normans*
- You probably bought it from a bloke called Dave in the local pub… who *cough* found *cough* it
Disclaimer: There are other unscrupulous people in the world. It’s not just ‘Dave.’
Naturally, most new instruments come with a beautifully protective and lined bespoke clarinet case. Each element of your instrument fits in perfectly and snugly. Ideally they even have room for your reeds and accessories.
But what if something happens? A cracked outer? A broken handle? Or what if – a little less dramatically – you simply want a better one with pristine, attractive features (just like this author.)
In this article, I will show you the perfect Bags & Cases on offer, from the tried and tested brands of Sonata, Chord, Stagg and Tom & Will. We have the perfect Clarinet Case for you.
Starting with the Sonata Clarinet Case. Wow! Top marks for the Sonata designers on this one, I think must have been head-hunted from Tom & Will
This Clarinet Case looks absolutely great with its back-pack styling and comfortable straps. Furthermore, it does exactly what is should do: it fully protects your clarinet. The outer material is made of black and grey canvas which is strong and durable, ensuring your beloved Clarinet is safely housed.
The Chord 173.387UK Clarinet Gigbag, is an affordable entry level soft carry bag for your Clarinet. This case does not feature the moulded-style compartments of others, and is designed for your original Clarinet case to fit inside. It has excellent features such as water resistance (always handy for water based performances and Handel’s Water Music!) and extra padding to provide extra protection. It also features a shoulder strap for comfort and an accessory pocket for your accessories (thank you Sherlock!)
The attractive and practical Champion Bb Clarinet Case will provide the protection your instrument deserves, featuring: a tough and durable woven showerproof outer cover, grab handle and padded backstraps that can be hidden behind a padded cover, plush velour moulded interior, reflective flash features on front pockets, zip surrounds and backstraps, ez-grip highly visible zip pulls, accessory & music pockets with integral pen/phone pouch.
Onto the Stagg SC-CL Soft Clarinet Case. This robust nylon case has been carefully designed to protect your clarinet in all situations. It features two slip-proof transport straps with a protective zip covering. The interior is plushly padded and a storm flap over the main zip protects your instrument from rain. The outside pockets offers plenty of room for your accessories and features and the easy grip plastic handle is kind to your hands.
The new Tom and Will 36CL Clarinet Hard Case combines practical features, amazingly attractive & professional looks with portability, making transporting your clarinet easy… with onlookers in awe! Available in resilient, hard-wearing grey or blue canvas, it will not disappoint.
This case has been designed to fit most standard Bb clarinets, including Buffet and Yamaha. The padded interior and plush lining keep your clarinet well-protected. The detachable shoulder strap and dual carry handle makes carrying the case easy. On the outside of the case is the main compartment and accessory pocket. Perfect for your reeds. As well as this is the sheet music pocket on the back. Now you have no excuse for forgetting any of your kit.
So there you have it… Undeniably a great selection of Clarinet cases. Something to please all budgets and all abilities.
Don’t let your Clarinet down: Treat it to something good looking & protective. Treat it to the Gladiator of cases!
*This just is plain is silly. We offer the best deals and quality instruments with a 5-year warranty for Clarinets over £150! They also come with a case.
