In Reply to: Alternative to Walt Johnson! posted by david on December 27, 2001 at 12:28:29:
David, thanks for the suggestion. I would certainly like to find a flight case option that would be less expensive than the approximately $900 I'd have to spend for a Walt Johnson case. However, before I entrusted my precious horn to the baggage beasts at the airlines, I'd have to know that several tubists have had long-term good results with the Armor Foamcases that you recommend.
Has anyone traveled extensively with their tuba in one of these alternative cases? Has your horn remained dentless?
