When Conn-Selmer surveyed almost 200 teenagers about what they wanted in their next case, the result was a new case design that Conn-Selmer dubbed “Cargo Case”. The new cases were packaged with Bach, Selmer and Emerson instruments and according to Conn-Selmer “took the market by storm”. Now these cases are available as after-market items for those looking for a new and different case for their current instruments.
The new Cargo Case line features silver metallic color hard shells and silver interiors, but the key feature is the colorful pocket patch – a removable multi-pocket area designed for specific applications. Pocket patches can hold CD or MP3 players, cell phones, water bottles, pencils and many other items. A patent is currently pending on the design. The new accessory case line includes cases for other wind instruments as well as trumpet. Cases should fit most makes of modern instruments. “With so many different instrument configurations, we needed to take some time to develop case nests that would be as universal as possible,” said Lori Szczypiorski, accessories manager. “These cases feature the popular VH1 Save The Music logo and we are contributing a portion of our sales to VH1 Save The Music Foundation to support music education.”
