Topic: Does this kind of bassoon case exist?
I'm wondering if there's a bassoon case out there that allows you to keep both the balance hanger and a right hand rest/crutch on the instrument when you put it in the case.
The newest Marcus Bonna cases and the Kolbl case modeled after the MB case let you keep the balance hanger on.
Some of the Fox cases and the Bam High-Tech cases let you keep the right hand rest on.
No case I can think of can accommodate both.
I'm happy with my BAM case, but I do have to take the balance hanger off to put my bassoon away, so I was curious. I'm not replacing it any time soon, but I couldn't think of any cases that would even fit both.
