    Hello - Just ordered a 7/8 Soundwear Performer case from Lemur & they say that it'll take about a month until I get it. I'm going to college pretty soon and I'm going to need my case sooner...However, I can't find anywhere online other than Lemur to buy these cases. Anyone know of somewhere I can look?

    Thanks. By the way, I live in NYC - Anyone know somewhere in NYC where I can get one?

    I got mine from Woodwind and Brasswind (wwbw.com). Had for like 2 years now and shows hardly any wear & tear.

    thanks -- what size case do you have?
    if you have a 3/4 size case, i'm wondering if my bass would fit into a 3/4 case because 7/8 has always been a bit big. if it wouldn't be too much trouble, what are the dimensions of your bass & what size case do you have?

    Chances are, probably. I have a Christopher Busetto 304T which tends to be a little smaller than most 3/4s but I don't think it's a snug fit. I dunno what my bass dimensions are. I'm sure it's been posted on TB before. I think there's another TBer who uses it with a NS LaScala bass with no problems (Durrl, was that you?)

    Worth the $$$ in my book.

    Yup, that was/is me. I love that case. I routinely whack my case on the edges of doorways and stairwells, and with the Soundwear, there's been nary a scratch on the bass. I have lost one of the swivelling thingies on the shoulder strap to breakage, and one zipper on a utility pocket has gotten a bit tempermental, but that's about it. Like Toad, I abuse the crap out of my gear, and greatly appreciate the extra protection the SW case affords.

    Cool, thanks for the help! I think the 3/4 will fit my bass. I found the 3/4 Soundwear case dimensions online:

    - Overall Length: 186 cm (mine is 182.8cm)
    - Lower Bouts: 67 cm (mine is 63.5cm)
    - Upper Bouts: 52 cm (mine is 50.8cm)
    - Bridge to back: 45 cm (mine is about 43cm)

    I'll cancel my Lemur order and order a 3/4 case from WWBW.

    Thanks!
