The DAC TP2+ trumpet case is unique among professional cases in that it is totally customizable inside. It is designed to carry two full-sized Bb or C trumpets, or a Bb/C in combination with a piccolo trumpet, rotary trumpet or mutes (see photo). With the exception of some padding along the bottom edge of the inside wall and along one part of the lid, there are no permanantly affixed structures. All structures—blocks, pads and even the small accessory compartment—are configured by you to best fit your horn. The case is of fiberglass construction and is one of the lightest we have ever seen at only 6.65 pounds (3 kg). It is sleek and compact, taking no more room than is needed to safely carry your horns. The case comes with two straps, arranged in backpack fashion, which are permanantly attached to four steel D-hoop cleats. The padded straps can be cut off if you wish and replaced (one or both) with others of your choosing, This you might consider doing if you don't wish to have backpack straps. The lid is secured with three latches - two semi-automatic draw latches and one fully automatic locking flip latch (keys included). There are two handles, one standard and a smaller subway handle on the tail. A set of eight rubber feet allow the case to be stood on end or horizontally on the floor. A rubberized valence keeps rain and snow out of the case. The interior features an open floor plan, as is fitting for a fully customizable design. There are 13 padded blocks of various shapes and sizes, plus a small accessory compartment, all attached to the case interior with velcro. These you move and position as required to insure the best fit for your horns.
