Instrument Cases

I specialize in harps, but build a wide range of custom cases for traditional instruments.
​I have limited availability and may not be able to take orders at all times.  Because of this, I do not take recurring orders such as from instrument makers. Most of my availability falls November – April.
Currently, large foam cases are available for local pick-up only.


Handmade soft cases custom-drafted to fit your instrument.

Economy quilted case:  Single layer of lightly quilted cotton.  It won’t do much for protection, but it’s cheap and fits better than that blanket you’ve been trying to use.
Canvas quilted case:  Duck canvas and two layers of quilting provide light protection in a case that collapses easily for storage.
Foam cases: Built with duck canvas, lined with cotton twill, and padded with sturdy 1/2” upholstery foam or closed-cell padding.  Unfortunately, I cannot offer closed-cell foam cases to harps over 4 ft in height, or upholstery foam cases over 58 inches, due to the limitations of my studio.

•Hand-, shoulder-, or backpack-straps are made from heavy-duty nylon webbing.
•14” x 12.5” zippered pocket is perfect for sheet music, tuning keys, and more (or smaller, based on size of case).
• Removable backpack straps available for instruments 15 lbs. or lighter (10 lbs for economy cases).
• Convenient removable bottom available for larger/floor harps.
