They were designed for high school, college, and professional trumpet players who want a case that is uncommonly protective, can fit anywhere, and can be worn like a back pack. Music pouch and mute bag attachments are optionally available. Great for pros, travelers, freelance artists, and students!

FEATURES INCLUDE:

•LightWeight Design----Only 7 Pounds! (For comparison, a Bach single brown case weighs MORE, but you can't jump on it like ours!)

•Exceptionally Durable----Ballistic Nylon Shell! Leather version coming soon!

•Exceedingly Protective----Supports over 400 Pounds!

•Accessories Pocket----Holds Your Mouthpiece, Valve Oil, etc.

•Detachable Music Pouch----Big Enough to Hold the Arban Method! New Feature!

Pros: SUPER protection and VERY functional!
Cons: NONE!

 
This case is AWESOME! It offer the most protection than any other case I've ever seen. This case had to be designed by a Trumpet playing Engineer. The inner hard shell structure, straps, handle, rubberized bottom end cap, inside storage compartment, detachable mute bag, name holder, and much more.... EVERYTHING is well designed and constructed.

One thing worth mentioning, this case is guaranteed for LIFE!

Pros: Hard as hell, light, easy to use, stands up, accessories packet....the list goes on
Cons:

 
I'll never need another bag/case again. I went from having the cool Lawler suitcase/trumpet case to the Torpedo bag.

It's very easy to use. I just sit down, stand the case up, and pull the horn out. No bending over. No crap moving around.

This case can fit anywhere, and the fact that it stands up is more important then you'd think, especailly on gigs where the stage area is cramped. I forgot my trumpet stand one time, and the Torpedo bag saved my life.

You're not going to find a better case.

Pros: Very protective, light weight, enough space
Cons: Hard to get trumpet out

 
This case is the most protective that can be bought and still very light weight, and small in size. Backpack and shoulder straps make it easy to carry. The case has an internal pouch that can hold many accessaries, I have two mouthpieces a metronome, valve oil and there is still room. Also exterior attachments can be purchased, a mute bag that can hold 7 mutes at the same time and another attachment can hold music. This can hold an Arbans book as well as 90 plus pages of sheet music. Drawbacks are that trumpets are a bit hard to take out because things such as water keys and pinky rings can get caught in the interior lining, and you have to make sure that you store the case at the correct angle so the trumpet is in playing position to assure that the valves drain properly, which can be hard because the case has a cylindrical shape, but this case is an overall great purchase.

Pros: Durable, Portable, Efficient
Cons:

 
As a touring musician I needed a rock solid case. I knew that my horn was going to be tossed/bumped/kicked at some point and I wanted to know that it was going to be alright. This took care of the job and I could sling it over my shoulder without any concern. The thing is small enough that in a crowd I hardly even bump into people.

I know the owner continuously tries to incorporate feedback into them which is a huge plus, he's very receptive to the users.

The zipper is really tough which was one of the things I was scared of and the accessory pouches are bigger than expected. As per the review above me the sheet music holder can take on an Arban's book at least! The mute bag makes a great pouch for stage accessories such as your clip on mic, trumpet stand & shakers... All in all a well designed case. If you have a horn you want to protect, be it on the road or elsewhere, buy this case.
