Got my new Harp Case its a flight case and weights 43lbs fully loaded with harp and gig bag.

 

They used a material called propolene hexcell which is 44% lighter then wood with the same strengh. It has casters on it as well as handles on the end and side. size is 48x21x10.5

Also has lock latches.

 

So Im hoping these are some good specs for whats out there.

The company is called dinosaur cases in Vancouver
http://www.dinosaurcases.com/main.html

about 3 weeks to get it but its possible to get one quicker

Will post some pics shortly.

Cost 430.00 cdn before taxes.

Thanks Don, I'll check them out as well.  I am currently looking into options for Harp Guitar Music - one is possibly commissioning custom HG cases from Caseextreme, which would be much less, if not as pretty.

Tone, you were supposed to try the demo case at HGG5!
You'd have to give me a tracing or max length, width and depth.  Sorry, I can't discount on special orders, much as I'd love to.
Jaci was not exactly a willing model - she'll be thrilled to hear that!

you know i want the HGM logo on mine Gregg, so it will appear as tho i m signed on a label or something! i didnt realize that you actually had a universal gig bag at HGGV along with the indestructible box. i saw kathys gig bag but she said she gave them a tracing of her HG. i guess i ll have to come and visit you guys again, and try it out... if it fits i ll get one from you, if not i ll have to order one from colorado.
they sure look awsome!
having a gig bag really would have saved me 65$ on the return trip as they decided to charge me for the oversized checked luggage on the way back. actually she charged me 50$.

I sure have been playing HG alot and watching all the videos lately...
i think you should host a few more HG vids on your youtube group. there are only 9... shouldnt you have them all?

Tone - that is only an inch longer - if it doesn't have an end pin, you might just barely make it.  Again, a tracing would be a good double check.

Hey Gregg,

Have you got the gig bags that fit my instruments in yet?

I added a new page of miscellaneous cases (most used); some may fit odd size instruments.

I've stocked up on a certain Gator flight case for anyone with large or long harp guitars built by an overzealous luthier.  Now you Gibson owners can all come to the Gathering!  Benoit flies his over in similar Gator cases.  It's an uncommon size to find in stock, which is why I bit the bullet and became a dealer.
