Anyone making split cases? There used to be a light weight set made out of drum case material?

Kevin Hatton is still making cases I believe. His info is on the forum I believe.

Forum member Steve Hinson makes the drum case material cases. I think he calls his company "Brand X".

I'm now using the cases that are now known as 'Brand X'. Mine date from before Steve took the company over but they're virtually the same thing.

I believe that Woody Woodell made mine. Bobbe Seymour put me on to Woody way back in around 2004.

I don't think I'd ship a steel in one of these fibre-cases but they're perfect if you're handling your stuff yourself. These days, if my Emmons D-10 is not separated, I struggle to lift even my old Wheel-Ez case that I could once heft as though it was nothing!

Get in touch with Steve Hinson.

I'm happy with my Brand X case which I had made for my Sho-Bud Professional body. There is no way I would even consider playing that heavy old beast otherwise but it's been a dream using it again since I can now carry it to gigs.
I just use a small keyboard gig bag for the legs, rods and pedal rack.

While you're waiting for a split case,a gig bag for a 61 key electric keyboard will carry your leg bag and pedal rack.Kind of a kludge,but a cheap one! Winking
