Trinity violin travel set
There are zillions of stories around in the www about air traveling with an instrument, and most of us are frightened to death if it comes about that topic. While cellists will have to get their instrument it's own seat, and many violas will eventually be to long to fit into anything which might fulfill the measurements of hand luggage, different cases have been invented for traveling with a violin - some better, and some worse. What always kept me from buying a BAM overhead case (which occurred the most promising to me yet) was - the hefty price. And still we're in the boarding personal's grace, pay for early boarding etc.
Although it seems to be on the market several years already, I just stumbled over the Trinity Violin Travel Set the first time. It's a bit similar to the BAM overhead, there's only space for a violin in the case, which is stored diagonally in a cabin size suitcase (with extra room for clothes, iPad, toothbrush...), which is navigated by a handle which takes up to 2 bows inside. And all together for a price quite below the BAM.
It's a tempting combination - has anybody here experiences with this set?
I have the violin and the bow case for about a year now. No complaints, extremely comfortable for the back to carry it around.
I have a customer who recently retired from MS, and is thus well positioned to be able to afford it!
Right, that was an issue, I had a 35,9 cm Ventapane for a week which did not fit into the case.
Still wondering if someone here ever traveled with the whole set...?
