Melodica travel cases
April 13, 2015 at 3:29 am #4642
I was wondering if anyone has found any off the shelf hard cases that work for transporting multiple instruments to gigs. it is kind of a hassle to carry so many different cases, and it is rather indelicate to just throw the different cased instruments into a duffle bag. I seem to remember Melodica-Me having a picture with 3 different instruments in one hard case. I would love to find something like that.

Hello Shannon, the case I have for the Hammond Melodions is a custom made ATA case from Anvil. I have recently ordered another for my Clavietta’s. I had them made for protection, the one for the Hammond weights more than the (3) Melodions combined when empty but the canvas bag they came in offered no protection at all. Even with the Melodions in the case it is still very manageable and actually takes less room and definitely less of a hassle carrying one case than (3) melodica’s cases.

Thanks MM, I figured as much. What type of interior do you have to separate and support the instruments? if you have time, some pictures of your cases, especially the interiors, would be appreciated.

This is my solution to transport my Hohner Professional 36 and Piano 36.
UDG Case, durable and very lightweight !!!

Thanks for your input. Which model case is this?

The case is for DJ equipment but the size is perfect.

I’m posting here as it seems fairly related.
I wish to get a case like that for my Yamaha P37D (which comes with a protective but not convenient plastic case):
Do you know of a cheaper way of getting one rather than buying the shitty instrument for 35$? (incl. shipping..)
Thanks!May 14, 2015 at 12:21 am #5036
I have been thinking for some time about alternative carrying cases for melodicas. Recently, I saw a miniature golf bag at a thrift store that looked like it would accommodate a Hammond 44 and thought it would make a unique carrier. I didn’t buy it. But today it occurred to me that an arrow quiver might work. They come in different sizes and configurations. Here’s one, though, that’s not really for arrows but might work for a 32 or 36 key melodica:
Or a real quiver:
