Two Colorado companies who are leaders in their respective fields will soon be working together to produce a new line of musical instrument cases.
Colorado Case Company of Ft. Collins is a familiar name to musicians in all genres, bluegrass included. Their instrument gig bags, soft case covers and flight cases are endorsed by Steep Canyon Rangers, Missy Raines, Cadillac Sky, Sammy Shelor, Don Rigsby, Bill Evans and a great many other acoustic acts. They have been longtime members of the IBMA and have a history of support for bluegrass music.
Case Logic of Boulder likewise makes products that many musicians own and use, as well as a wide range of storage and portable carriage solutions for consumers. They got their start making carrying cases for audio cassettes, and now manufacture similar products for CDs, DVDs, MP3 players, cameras and laptops, as well as backpacks and luggage.
In their newly announced partnership, Colorado Case will design, market and distribute a line of musical instrument cases under an exclusive license with Case Logic. The first will be available in the 4th quarter of 2008, for guitars, flutes and drums, and marked with the Case Logic brand. More products will be added in 2009 and beyond with a full representation of all cased instruments expected in the next few years.
They will be sold through music stores, using Colorado Cases’ extensive network of dealers, and manufactured in their Ft. Collins facility.
