Designer: Marcus Bonna
Add a note to encourage purchase
The MB5ST is an original design by Marcus Bonna. Made by hand in a Brazil, Marcus Bonna cases are among the most popular by horn players of all levels. The MB5ST rests the bell at a slight angle over the corpus providing less overall thickness of the case compared to the MB1 model. Included are: padded backpack straps, shoulder strap, mouthpiece pouch, and room for a small folding music stand. The MB5 has a zipper enclosure and a soft cloth interior over forgiving foam. The shell is made of molded fiberglass. A small triangular shaped accessory pouch is inside. Outside you will find a small zipper music pouch on the back, and on the top is another triangular shaped zipper pouch. The MB5ST case includes the space to secure 2 straight mutes, 1 straight mute and 1 stopping mute, or a small folding music stand in the lid. We only order the MB5ST now, as we have found that they are equal to the MB5 (standard case) but with the addition of the music stand option, are more versatile.
The wheels version of the MB5ST is a versatile kit that attaches to the back of the case. You can use the case as normal, over one shoulder, or as a roller behind you. If you choose to, you can easily place the retractable handle in the case with the instrument.
Available in fiberglass or carbon fiber structural material. Carbon fiber is about 300g lighter.
