Humes and Berg Sheet Music Transport and Storage Case - The Vulcanized Fibre (or Fiber) Case - Special order item.
This is an heirloom product. The favorite of thousands of bands and orchestras throughout the world, I first saw these cases in the 1970's playing with a big band. I believe they are the best sheet music case you'll find anywhere. The Humes and Berg Vulcanized Fibre Sheet music case are popular because of their durability. These cases are a valuable find in used condition because they seem to last forever. You can be sure that they will last a very long time and you will be handing these down to the next generation. They are easy to transport; some sizes hold up to 36 folios, and some have wheels for easy transport. Designed to carry and protect your music.
Humes and Berg make beautiful cases. The quality of craftsmanship that goes into these is remarkable. The material is "Vulcanized Fibre" with corner reinforcements. The handles are placed in a comfortable position so you can balance the case when carrying it no matter how heavy the music you are carrying.
Please note that these cases are made by Humes and Berg using industrial high demand material. As such it sometimes takes several months for HB to acquire the material and manufacture the case. Musicity.com will get your order to them and produced as fast as any retailer. But make no mistake...the quality of the manufacture is superb and you'll have a case that will last decades. Humes and Berg is the last remaining manufacturer of Vulcanized Fibre products for the music industry. Every case is made to order...there is no standing inventory.
Special order. Cases are manufactured upon receiving an order. Please allow many weeks (16+) for Vulcanized Fibre products. Want something quicker? Try Enduro cases. Most are in stock ready to ship.
Humes and Berg also make the Enduro Sheet Music Case. How do you choose?
VULCANIZED FIBRE vs. ENDURO???
How do you choose between the two popular products? Vulcanized Fibre (VF) material has been around for decades. It was invented in 1871 and made from a celluloid paper base with a zinc chloride chemical gelling process. You have probably seen very thin sheets of this product used in gaskets, washers, gears, etc. For drum and sheet music cases the material is much thicker, heavier, weatherproof and virtually indestructible. VF is made from paper. Enduro is a petroleum-based product. It is basically molded plastic and is slightly thicker and slightly heavier than VF. Today Enduro is more available because the manufacturing process is more readily available. But Humes and Berg still manufactures VF the same old way and you can be sure to get a very high-quality music case that will be cherished forever. But the VF is a very long production process. If you need cases right away go with Enduro.
