The Tom & Will factory have spend a considerable time redesigning their oboes cases and their latest range combines a very high quality and stylish finish along with supreme longevity. The design is intended for all English thumb plate systems and conservatiore oboes by well known manufacturers such as Howarth or Yamaha among others.
This particular case is produced in a scratch resistant grey fabric which is then double stitched together and finished off with custom designed, die-cast zips. The whole process has been targeted towards making these cases strong enough to last the rigors of school transport, tour buses, school practice rooms and storage cupboards.
The interior case is precisely moulded and provides a snug protective environment for each part of your oboe, there is also room for the obvious accessories like cork grease and reeds. The upper portion of the case is made from a deep, plush, padded fabric which, when the case shuts, moulds to the individual contours of your instrument. The front pocket of the case provides plenty of room for more accessories and personal items whilst the large pocket on the back of the case provides ample room for sheet music. There is also 4 metal feet for extra stability should the case be placed on a shelf or table.
There are two carrying options: you can use the detachable shoulder strap with its moveable comfortable pad which is secured to the case with sturdy lanyard clips and chunky D-rings, or carry it by hand using the dual handles which are secured together with a fabric cover.
Reliable, smooth running zips and durable Tom & Will custom die-cast zipper pulls open right around three of the four sides for unhindered opening which allows the player to quickly and safely remove or return the instrument.
These cases are brilliant, much better than many of the standard factory cases and a sure to be very popular indeed
