Traveling by air or your local club date is a breeze with the attached wheels and telescoping handle.
The Protec PB-301VAX trumpet combo case is the result of a yearlong design collaboration with the famed trumpeter, Mike Vax. After spending years on the road as a performer, Mike has learned first hand what features a professional musician needs and appreciates. With a compact exterior dimension of 22" x 12-1/2" x 9" inches, this trumpet case will comply with most airline regulations. The exterior pocket design holds sheet music and allows for secure attachment of the Protec M-400 Mute Bag (sold separately). Interior layout fits many musical instruments. One section of the case fits a Bb trumpet or C trumpet, and the second section of the case fits a flugelhorn, cornet, and a Eb/D trumpet or piccolo trumpet.

In a few words, this case is wonderful. Very well made, sturdy, and plenty of padding. The case also has wheels and a telescoping handle so you can wheel it through airports or just to gigs. There is a roomy pocket on top for music, oil, etc. The inside is padded extremely well, and both trumpet and flugelhorn fit snugly. I have even been able to put a C trumpet and a cornet in the flugel side with no problems. Those of you with large bell flugels (Conn V1, etc.) may not be able to use this case. The only drawback to me is the fact that there is no room to put mutes in the case without potentially damaging a horn. Other than that, this is a great case, and I understand it will also fit in the overhead bin on airplanes. Well worth the money.

Unlike other reviewers, this case holds both my trumpet (Harrelson) and flugel (Yamaha)and seems well built and protects my horns just fine. My issues are with the exterior of the case. First, the front pouch is large, but awkward to use. By the time you put your MP case, valve oil, pencils, stand light and other knickknacks, there's little room for music. Invariably, something will fall to the bottom of the pouch and the zippers aren't large enough to allow full access. Also, if the pouch is open when you open the case, all your stuff falls out because of the zipper arrangement. Lastly, if you DO get your music in the pouch, the case becomes unbalanced and won't stand on end! Then there's the metal frame on the back. You have to be careful when carrying by the handles. Otherwise you bang you knee into the frame! Ouch! Also, you have to be careful what you set your case down on. It will scratch wood furniture and piano tops! I'd suggest putting the music pouch on the back over the frame. This protects your knee and furniture and changes the balance of the case. I'd also make the front pouch into two smaller pouches to better organize your stuff and move the zippers so that they can be open when the case is open.

      Comments about Protec Vax Trumpet Combo Case with Wheels:

      I had just arrived at a theater and set my horn case on the edge of the stage. Within 1 minute a light tech knocked my case over the front of the stage to the floor below, about 8 feet. There was no damage to my horns. Glad I had made the purchase.

        Comments about Protec Vax Trumpet Combo Case with Wheels:

        I waited far to long to buy a dual case for gigs. A friend had this model and it seemed to work well for him. I bit the bullet and took the plunge. I initially had an issue getting my flugel to sit right in the case but after checking my friends case, the flugel now sits like a champ. My Harrelson Bravara "just" fits in the case (length wise) but other then that no real issues. Everything is secure and I've had no issues so far. This is a vast improvement over lugging two cases. I have a small carry bag that fits my mute bag, mute holder and stands...which fits nicely on the top of the case when I use the wheels. The extra storage on the front will hold pencils, a light, and other sundries along with some oversized music. It probably won't hold a large gig book but it's fine for this case.

        Overall, as with other reviews I've seen, I would recommend that if you are using this bag for a trumpet/flugel combo, verify the flugel size before purchasing. I'm using the Bravara trumpet and LA flugel combo while my friend with the same bag is using a Blackburn trumpet and Kansul flugel combo. Both configurations fit snugly and I've not had any issues

        Comments about Protec Vax Trumpet Combo Case with Wheels:

        Not the best case for big band travel gigs. It does good job protecting horns. Need to find a way to carry other items besides in your suitcase. Makes for a juggling act.

        Comments about Protec Vax Trumpet Combo Case with Wheels:

        Wanted a trumpet/flugelhorn combo case that would be protective, easy to transport, and travel with. The Vax combo case with wheels fits the bill very well. I often have to carry a stand and music folder, so having a case with wheels is a big plus for me. It has a tough ballistic skin, and provides very good protection for my instruments as well. Would highly recommend this case with the caveat to first ensure that your make of flugelhorn will fit. My Couesnon fits quite well, but some others are too big for this case.

        Comments about Protec Vax Trumpet Combo Case with Wheels:

        When I was forced to check my horns at Heathrow Airport on my return flight to the states, I knew I needed a more travel friendly case. The moment I got home, I ordered the Vax case and I haven't had a problem with airline travel since. It fits most flugels, including my Kanstul(albeit it is a little bit snug). 10/10 would recommend.

        An awesome product. Quite durable. Great for carrying multiple instruments, Provided with padding to insulate horns. Room for extra stuff inside. Outer compartment for storing music and some accessories. A bargain price for what it is made of. Compared to hard cases, the price is well worth the cost.

        This bag meets my expectations and then some. It holds my Benge nice and snug and fits my Couesnon flugelhorn perfectly. It's compact and will have no problem as a carry-on. I carry my cell phone, tablet, trumpet cleaning kit, and some music in the outside pouch and have no problems with balancing the bag. All that for a great price.

        Comments about Protec Vax Trumpet Combo Case with Wheels:

        Perfect for brass doublers. Although designed for one long and one short horn, a slight modification allowed me to carry a Bb or C in the auxiliary side as well, making this one of the most versatile cases I've ever seen. I could put any 2 of my trumpets in it (Bb, C, D/Eb, Pic, flugel, or cornet) and they were safe enough to stow in the overhead compartment of an airplane. The wheels make it as handy as any piece of luggage, so I never had a reason to use the shoulder strap, but it's nice to have that option too.
