Protec Big Band Music Folder - designed for lots of charts. Our most popular big band folder.
Also known as a Sheet Music Folio this is one of the best music folders available. It is large enough to hold all of your music, has elastic straps to keep your sheet music in tact, and a pencil holder for those rehearsals. Perfect sheet music folder.
This great looking band/orchestra/choral folio is made to last for years. This folder is large enough to hold most every chart you will want to play. All edges are bound, features heavy duty stiching, and stands up to lots of wear. Available in Black which is all you will want anyway, it has a deep 1.5" gusseted pocket on each side with a 3.75" spine to allow a large amount of sheet music to be stored. I have used these for years and they are fine looking folios. They are priced well and well worth the money.
Fits sheet music up to 10 1/4" x 12 3/4". weighs about 1 lb.
This folder is great for about 200+ charts which will fit most situations depending on how many pages are in the charts. Although some bands have reported using 300 or more charts. This is one of the more popular folders for bands, orchestras and swing bands. It has a padded cover for protection and elegant looks. Sturdy, has pockets and a pencil holder inside. Plus with the elastic cords it will keep you music in the folder when transporting it to the rehearsal or gig.
This folder is perfect in every way. It will fit about every situation, is made to last a very long time and might be the last folder you will ever need to buy. It is padded so that you can carry it comfortably; it is large enough so that you can carry all of your music, and it is handsome enough so that you will be proud to carry it around and display it on your music stand. Protec has created a perfect design that meets the needs of musicians everywhere. Protec listened to band directors and musicians to design a sheet music folder that you will proud to own.
Here are some of the comments customers have made about this folder...
It fits 10x13 size sheet music, which is one of most standard sizes. The pockets also stretch to allow for a decent amount of storage. Good for holding music for multiple projects. The folder feels sturdy but has a soft, padded exterior that feels a lot nicer than the more common black pressed cardboard hard folders. The brass corners are great for durability of the folder too. Could not recommend more.

It's is a very think (sic) binder and holds up very well. Got this a couple years ago for my sheet music and holds a lot of music and keeps it protected very well.

A great folder! Ive been using it for around 2 years and it is battle tested. Large and spacious, with straps that keep the folder closed for travel.

Two local community bands that I'm in use standard unpadded music folders that are 12 3/4" wide x 14 1/4" high x 1/4" thick, with two pockets that can each accommodate 3/4" of music. This Protec folder is 11 3/4" wide x 13 3/4" high x ½" thick, with pockets that can each hold an inch of music. Either folder is sufficiently large for any band music in our band's huge library. For use by an individual, the padding is a nice touch. However, if used by a large band in volume, the extra 1/4" thickness per folder could be a storage issue if folders are stored centrally. That is, for every four Protec padded folders, an additional inch in storage space would be needed, versus unpadded folders.
