Is there a better profession than being a musician? You don’t just get to enjoy your days filled with music, but usually you get to travel, visit places, see the world. And what’s more awesome than playing in front of an enthusiastic crowd craving for some good music? On top of it all, you get payed to do that. I honestly think life is just too amazing for musicians and since they travel a lot, they need a serious protection for their equipment – the instruments.
Instruments are like every musician’s little baby. That’s the amount of care they give them, so protecting them is their top priority. It’s stressful enough that they have to rehearse several hours a day then get ready for a concert abroad and drag their beloved instruments around can give them extra headaches. And I’m not talking about musicians that go around with an acoustic guitar and a microphone and play wherever they feel like it, I’m talking about serious musicians whose instruments are literally their everything. They can be professional violinists, trumpeters, band members – the options are endless. All of the instruments and all the additional musical equipment is really fragile and taking them from one place to another can be really damaging. When you add that musical instruments are very (and when I say very I really mean it) expensive, the protection becomes indispensable.
This is where a heavy duty road case steps in to save the day and the instrument. These essential items are something that every musician needs to own. The great part is that there are different types of cases suitable for all instruments, whether it’s a cello, a keyboard, an electric guitar or a flute. Musicians can choose between a hard instrument case or a soft, padded bag depending on the instrument and the places they travel to. If we’re talking about a musician with an acoustic guitar that plays gigs in local cafes and pubs, a padded gig bag will do just fine, but if the musician often travels out of the city or the country, a heavy duty road case is what can provide the best protection.
The cases provide protection from any kind of harmful external influences such as water, wind or humidity, that can seriously damage the instrument. Now it’s true these cases are not the most comfortable items to travel around with, since they are usually very heavy and bulky, but once you get used to them, the discomfort won’t be a problem, especially when the existence of the musical instrument depends on them.
That’s why even the smallest of instruments like harmonicas need proper protection cases that will keep them safe from bumps, knocks and drops. The musical industry is a massive one and it’s one of the few industries we all adore so keeping those instruments safe and sound is for the good of humanity! That being said, follow your needs and your desires and select the heavy duty case that will be best pick for your instrument and have safe and enjoyable travels.
