I have a set of mid 1970's era R13 Bb and A clarinets. Recently had an adjustable thumbrest added and positioned higher on the A. The A lower joint now no longer fits in the original case without unscrewing the thumbrest.
Any suggestions for a good case that fits R13s, has space for a tablet, reeds, etc, and also preferably has backpack straps? Thanks in advance.
I'm not sure if the thumbrest change would effect it but the double clarinet case Trekking from BAM is a great case that can hold an A and Bflat clarinet and it has straps and the zipper pouch on the outside is big enough for a laptop and music. They run around the $400 USD mark but they are super great cases.
Also it fit everything I needed in the case^
