hard cases

Does anyone know of a manufacturer of hard dulcimer cases? Hard as in fiberglass or some such.

Hi Gini! For a MD or HD? I think the only HD hard cases I've seen are a type of covered wood. I have one and it's really pretty sturdy. I like it alot. I haven't seen the type case you're asking about. But a few here use rifle cases. Sounds more like what you're looking for.

Many years ago Russell Cook custom-built a braced wooden case for us which we used for a trip to Ireland and Scotland, and which has been at the bottom of many stacks of luggage and instruments in cars since then. I'm, not sure he would do it again, but the concept was pretty simple.

If you're looking for an MD case, here is one on eBay at not too bad a price. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 9&rd=1 I've seen this outfit selling cases fairly regularly and his feedback looks pretty good.

I've been told that I'm a hard case. But I don't fit a dulcimer inside me, even though I look big enough to.

the case Jak mentioned on e-bay is pretty solid. Just double check the dimensions. When I was looking for a case, mine wouldn't fit.

Yes, for a MD - forget there are other kinds! And thanks for the advice and leads to everyone!

You might also check out the molded cavity case at: http://www.craggymtnmusic.com/mdaccess.htm This is the one someone (kwl?) mentioned in another thread.

Yep, I was the one that mentioned it. But you beat me to it in this thread!

Eureka!!! It may not be the molded plastic/fiberglass I was hoping for, but it is an improvement over my soft cases for travel! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!Smile
