Quad Flute/Picc Case—NOT the like Wiseman Quad Cases

Post by CarolynLeavitt »

I’m looking for a combo flute/Picc case that holds 2 flutes and 2 piccs—I have a C-foot student flute and a composite body/metal head joint picc that I play in marching band and a B-foot professional flute and grenadilla wood picc with a bulbous head joint that I play for the concert season. The problem is, marching season and concert season sometimes coincide together, and I play my concert instruments in the orchestra and local symphony year-round. So, it would be wise for me to have a case that held all four as one instead of having to lug around two or four separate cases everywhere in addition to the other materials that I bring.

So, my question is: does such as case exist (even if it’s custom made)? If not, I can just do two double cases—one for marching, the other for concert—and be just fine; however, if a case like this can be bought, I’d definitely rather do that.

I'm not aware of any quad cases other than the Wiseman. Wiseman makes very nice cases but they are expensive ($1000+) as I'm sure you noticed. There are some alternatives you can consider. You could try an Altieri flute, piccolo, and laptop backpack. It is a little over $200 - maybe less if you catch a special someplace. It can hold two flutes, a piccolo, and a laptop. Without the laptop, you should be able to store a second piccolo. If you went with two flute/picc cases, I believe they would also fit. I have this one and like it a lot because it is insulated to protect my instruments against extreme weather. There is also room for some music and other accessories too. I like it because it is flexible.
