Colorado Case Company has expanded from their popular line of soft cases and case covers to include fiberglass flight cases for mandolin, guitar, fiddle and banjo. They will offer shaped, rectangular and teardrop cases selling in the $600-$900 range.
Company President Steve Simmons tells us how this came to be…
“We have essentially bought the technology formerly known as Price Cases, made by Gary Price, a well known banjo maker who had also developed a great line of cases. He had the technology, and we had the manufacturing and distribution experience so it was a good match.
These cases will be an affordable alternative to other fiberglass cases, but with some substantial improvements. Plus, in fitting with our mission, they will all be made in the USA at our Colorado facility.
We currently are in transition and only have dreadnought size guitars available, but will have standard banjo and mandolins available in the next 60 days. By the end of the year we hope to have everything transitioned to Colorado and be ready to take custom sized orders.”
Steve said that attendees at the 2010 IBMA World Of Bluegrass and Fan Fest will have a chance to check out these new cases, which will be on display in the exhibit area.
With the addition of these new fiberglass flight cases, Colorado Case will discontinue their distribution of Calton Cases, though they will still offer Karura and Accord carbon fiber cases.
