We get a lot of questions about our name. Rightfully so, but please let us show you why you can stack our custom cases up against any case by any other manufacturer in the industry.

First, all our cases are CAD designed and cut by one of our 4 CNC routers. This serves two purposes.

  1. Our accuracy is absolute. All designs are accurate to within 1/1000 (.001) of an inch.
  2. We have spare parts available in a matter of minutes. If you have a case damaged in transit, we can repair it quickly, and the repair part will be identical to the original part that was on the case prior to it being damaged.

Second, All our cases, except our FLight Panel cases, are manufactured with Birch plywood that has it's ABS laminate applied at the factory. We don't glue up laminate ourselves. Our laminates are applied by the plywood manufacturer with a vacuum press insuring that there are no voids which means that there is much less risk of de-lamination like you have probably seen in other cases.

Third, We use only the finest materials and hardware, guaranteeing a sturdy, road worthy and beautiful case. All rivets are "pop" type rivets, not split rivets that embed their prongs into the wood like some manufacturers. Also, all rivets are "popped" with metal on both sides of the wood, be it through our valance, double wall corners, or simply hardware and a backing washer. We never allow structural rivets to be popped directly into the wood.

So you are probably asking, then why are they so inexpensive. The answer is simple, the reasons above say it all. Easy flawless builds cut down on waste. Allowing the machines to do all the cutting cut down on man-hours and allows our staff to multi-task. The CNC routers also allow us to get the maximum use out of our wood materials or FLight Panel by nesting the parts as closely as can be on each piece. Using high quality materials means less time digging through lesser quality materials to find what will work for the job at hand.

Designing a Custom Case

In order for us to properly design your custom case, we may need you to do some measuring. It is possible for us to obtain the dimensions for many items that are currently still in production. However, not all dimensioning information is readily available Accuracy of your measurements is crucial to the proper fit of your item to be cased. Please follow the directions below. If you have questions about how to handle the measurements of a certain item, don't hesitate to call. We will be happy to assist you in any way we can.

Amplifier or Speaker Cabinet CasesAmp Dimensioning

When measuring a guitar amplifier or a speaker cabinet please use the following directions to obtain accurate measurements and ensure a perfect fit for your particular amp.

  1. If there are items projecting from the amp, then they should be included in your measurements.
  2. Height is the most crucial measurement. We want to be able to "CLAMP" your amp in the case so it doesn't move during transport. DO NOT include feet or top mounted handles in your measurements.
  3. Please submit your dimensions to us as W x D x H (Width x Depth x Height). We will add 1/4" in all dimensions to ensure easy lid removal and application.

NOTE: Cases will be built to the dimensions you provide. They do not fit a range of sizes.

Keyboard or Mixing Console Cases

  1. Keyboard DimsIf there are items projecting from the keyboard, then they should be included in your measurements.
  2. Rear Height is the most crucial measurement. We want to be able to "CLAMP" your instrument in the case so it doesn't move during transport. DO NOT include feet or small knobs etc. in your measurements. Only measure the body of the keyboard.
  3. Front Height and Clear Areas allow us to place hold down blocks of foam to prevent movement. (Clear Areas are spaces along the front edge or front sides where there are no keys, knobs or other sensitive items)
  4. Please submit your dimensions to us as W x D x RH x FH(Width x Depth x Rear Height x Front Height).

NOTE: Cases will be built to the dimensions you provide. They do not fit a range of sizes.

Let us design a case for you. We are sure that you will be truly happy that you did.
