Topic: Marcus Bonna case damaging instrument?
I really would like to have a MB case for my Moosmann 200AP for the size convenience and lighter weight. However, after borrowing my colleague's case for a few days, I noticed that because of the manner in which the pieces fit into the case, a pretty sizable chunk of metal had been gouged out of the whisper key post, from being pressed directly against the hand rest assembly on the boot. Luckily the post hadn't been bent, but I imagine it could happen pretty easily if the case were bumped, dropped, or jostled.
Has this happened to anyone else? This is a pretty old case, so I wonder if the dimensions have changed in the last 5-10 years that would prevent the problem from happening? I don't want to order a case if I won't be able to use it without risking permanent damage to my instrument.
