Notes from the Band – The Best Custom Road Case Scenario
4 April 2017
As an experienced musician who has toured the country many times over, I’ve learned to appreciate the value of a good road case. When so many things can go wrong in transit, why leave anything to chance? After spending a considerable sum of money on your instrument, it only makes sense to protect your investment. Which brings me to my first point: Always get protection for your instrument immediately after you buy it. If necessary, wait until you’ve saved enough to acquire both. Prior to buying your instrument, do some homework and be prepared to choose your case as soon as possible.
Which brings me to my second point: Don’t be penny wise and pound foolish. You need a case that makes it to every gig without incident so get the best case possible. What could be worse than arriving on stage only to find that your guitar’s soundboard has cracked? The success of your performance rests on the reliability of you and your instrument. Don’t embarass youself and risk losing a future gig because you show up looking like an amateur.
Benefits of a Well Constructed Case
Remember your fans are likely to know you and be familiar with the instruments you play. Not only is it important that they produce good sound, but since you’re performing, image matters. You want your instrument to always look absolutely perfect. The best way to preserve it and keep it in top condition, is to house it in a case that provides everything your instrument requires. The right case can:
- Keep your instrument looking like new
- Maintain your instrument’s value if / when you decide to sell it
- Make a good impression and increase customer confidence for current gig
- Create a lasting impression that will ensure repeat bookings
And, my third point? When building a custom road case for your instrument, choose a professional packaging design and engineering team like the group at LPC. Working with a partner like Larson Packaging Company can offer unique design solutions to fit your every need.
