Subject: RE: Tech: Instrument Cases for Flying
Keith Calton has just made me a new cello case. Lovely job!

Calton (UK) the original one-man designer/maker or
Calton Cases of Canada who make cases to the same design and method under licence.

They are very strong double-skin fibreglass with foam lining made to measure, carefully designed to keep every part of the instrument well away from the hard shell.

Horror stories?
Calton cases have fallen out of airport loading trucks and got run over by vehicles and still protected their contents from damage.
