Gator GL-TRUMPET-A Lightweight

Tosnail 15mm Padded


+ Very well-made.
+ EPS foam interior.
+ Comfy interlocking handles and an optional strap.

+ Waterproof soft case.
+ Strong handles.
+ Very cheap.


It is a reasonably priced light-weight soft-case that fits its insides snugly around your trumpet to give it better protection.

It is a budget-friendly compact option, well-made for a low-end product. Strong in all the right places. It isn't the best on the market but is perhaps something you could modify in a pinch if funds are low as it doesn't offer much in the way of cushioning.
