I have used this case for approximately six months to tote trupet, music and accessories to and from between five and nine rehearsals per week as well as numerous performances. The main instrument compartment is very well padded and has a wide velcro strap to secure the instrument. In the larger of the two outer compartments I can pack a music folder & exercise book, five mutes and a homemade four-hole mute rack with relative ease with some room to spare. The smaller outer compartment easily accommodates valve oil, slide grease, three mouthpieces, a chromatic tuner, K&M trumpet stand (I don't like having it in the bell of my horn during transport), a bottle of water, and a few polishing/cleaning cloths. It is possible to also put a folding music stand in the larger compartment, but the one I have protrudes a few inches out the top, disallowing complete closing of the zipper. I would rate this case a 10 across the board if the backback straps were detachable and if it had an external pocket for a water bottle. The quality of construction and durability is very comparable to high-end soft side luggage.
If this bag had an insulated external water bottle pouch and detachable shoulder straps I would rate it a 10 across the board. The instrument compartment is well padded and equipped with a wide, padded strap with large velcro fastener to quickly and surely secure the instrument. The smaller of the two outer compartments has two pencil pockets that are flanked by two larger pockets that easily accommodate a bottle of valve oil and a tuner. It has a flap-closure pocket to hold three mouthpieces, with plenty of room to also easily hold my trumpet stand and a 1-pint bottle of water. The larger compartment has no pockets, but easily holds four mutes, a homemade mute rack, and a couple of 9.5" x 12.5" music folders with ample room to spare. Construction compares to that of superior quality softside luggage, with anti-wear welts along the full length of all zippers. Two sturdy carrying handles facilitate carrying it either horizontally or vertically, and the shoulder straps are padded and comfortable for carrying backpack style. Common sense dictates not exposing it as checked airline baggage, but if you're carrying only one trumpet it transports everything you need in one compact package that's small enough to stow under a chair during rehearsal.
This bag provides the convenience of being able to tote everything I need for rehearsals and concerts, including five mutes and mute rack that holds them all. The instrument compartment is plush and well padded with a wide velcro strap to secure the instrument. The only reason I don't rate this product a 10 across the board is that I think the shoulder straps could have been made detachable for short jaunts, and could have included an external pouch for a water bottle or soft drink.
After toting this bag to and from up to nine rehearsals per week for well over a year, it shows no external signs of wear. However, I recently noticed a few tiny scratches on my horn, apparently caused by indavertent contact with the "hooK" side of the velcro strip that fastens the strap with secures the instrument. This was remedied by making a simple microfiber bag to slip over the horn before putting inserting it into and after removing it from the case. Otherwise I stand by my previous reviews. For carrying a single trumpet/cornet and accessories this bag is an excellent value for the money.
