He made that one specially for standing on it I guess?
Was it a red one?
I have one of your dad's, Sarah, and sure wouldn't dare to stand on it. Too precious
About soft cases, I have a soft case for records Disc Jockeys use. A cajun accordion fits in exactly. For the stops I made an extra protection. I can even leave them in playing position. Perfect and heath protected as well. I think the size is o.k. Price was around 50 euro, so not so cheap as the Igloo brand fish bait coolers.
No, you can totally stand on it! (Please--not for performance tactics but for demonstration of their strength only ) Yep, the red one. Saw the vid? With the sheep ____?
That soft case was WAY expensive. The ones my dad sells are similar, though, I'm guessing, but I don't know the price. They're made by Peavey for DJ equipment or something like that and come with these velco-edged pieces that he tapes together. You put that on top of the accordion once you put it in the bag and that protects the stops.
just wanted to pass along some info related to travel with an instrument...
You may carry one (1) musical instrument in addition to 1 carry-on and 1 personal item through the screening checkpoint. This is a TSA Screening Policy. Airlines may or may not allow the additional carry-on item on their aircraft. Please check with your airline before you arrive at the airport.
Security officers must x-ray or physically screen your instrument before it can be transported on an aircraft.
Security officers will handle musical instruments very carefully and will allow you to be as involved as possible in any physical screening.
Not sure if it was just that one airline I was on, but the last time I traveled with my anvil case, I could not fit it under the seat in front of me. I just sort of hid the fact that it wasn't fitting very well, and made like my knee in my face was really comfortable, but I wasn't going to put it anywhere else (not sure if it fits in overhead).
