Comments about Protec MAX Flute Case:
I got this flute case for my daughter after looking at many on the internet. She decided on the one that is pictured. That is not what we received. It seems as though the manufacturer has changed it a bit, and Musician's Friend should change the photos and description to match. The one we actually received, I could've gotten for half the price somewhere else. The differences that I see are the shoulder strap on the one pictured has metal clasps instead of plastic, a second zippered pocket on the other side, and a velcro "quick lock" closure. It also looks like there are little loops for maybe pencils (important in rehearsals) on the front pocket, but I could be wrong on that. Unfortunately, these three definite differences were the three deciding factors when we chose this one over the one on other sites (which ended up being the one we received). I was disappointed when we opened the box, but she really needed a case like this by that weekend and decided to just settle and accept it.
That being said, the case is great. She used it all weekend at an honor band clinic at Virginia Tech and will be using it this weekend at the District band clinic. It was important to me that she have a case that will protect her instrument and allow her to keep supplies right with it in the pocket(s). This case is not going to accidentally come open EVER because of the zippered closure, and with the big pocket on the front, there is no chance of opening it upside down in a rush (which can result in the flute falling out and disaster). The material seems very durable. The inside of the case is soft and holds the flute more securely than the case that the flute came with, and it accommodates 2 different foot joints.
I do wish the one we received was the one pictured. I hope the plastic strap clasps hold up. But what bugs me the most is that I spent more thinking I was getting something better than what was on other sites.
