I recently purchased an HB-21 from Peter Hirsbrunner in Switzerland that will not be completed until March 2000. When I talked with him on the phone he said that they offer a hard case for the instrument. I was wondering if anyone on the list has had any experience with the "Hirsbrunner Case", or is it simply manufactured by another case maker? It seemed a bit pricey to me, so might I be better off purchasing a Walt Johnson or comparable case here in the US and bringing the horn back from Europe in that (I can fly there and pick it up much cheaper than the shipping costs)? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
