I just got a new flute case because my original case that came with my instrument was completely worn out. I have been playing the same Yamaha 221 made in Japan for over 15 years and finally decided to replace the original case that the instrument came with. It was missing a handle, the fabric was completely torn inside, and my flute was no longer protected. The hinges were busted too!
I decided to purchase a Protec Max Flute Case and honestly have pretty mixed reviews
