Protec makes some amazing cases, but not always at such an amazing price. To answer the call of budget conscious consumers, Protec created the MAX line of cases.
This Protec Max Flute Case is currently available in black, blue, purple, and pink. It’s a very light case made from nylon, with an EPS Foam interior to protect the instrument. It weighs in at only two pounds.
The interior is lined in a soft velvoa lining, so it won’t scratch or scuff the silver finish of a flute.
It includes an adjustable shoulder strap, in addition to the padded grips, which also lock together with a velcro closure.
This case will accommodate both a B foot and C foot flute.
Flute players are always denied any additional storage or pockets on with their factory cases, fortunately when upgrading the Max case, you will final get a nice zipper pocket that covers the entire span of the case – perfect for holding small accessories. It can even hold a piccolo case!
The MAX cases also feature nice rubber gripped zipper pulls attached to a heavy-duty zipper. Zippers are notoriously difficult on cases, with students often breaking them, at this price point the zipper is much nicer than many less expensive alternatives, and shouldn’t be a problem on this problem.
This case makes a great upgrade for any flute player. It’s far lighter than most factory cases and offers better protection! For serious musicians who travel a lot and rely on subways, buses, or go other places where your case might experience more wear and tear, you will want to spend the extra money on something from Protec’s Pro Pac line.
