    Our orchestra is experiencing serious durability problems with our fiber case for a 36" Pearl Concert Bass Drum. There just seems to be too much weight and bulk for the 'thinly' riveted handle and straps, (already replaced the handle and one strap, once, so far.)  I've Googled around for 36" concert bass drum cases, and haven't found much at all. I did find the Kohlberg Percussion 36" Bass Drum flight case... Kohlberg Case . VERY NICE! BUT, can't find a U.S. source, and shudder to think what the price might be...:o\   Any suggestions/solutions?? Thanks!

    The BEST source that I've found for any kind of cases, especially percussion, is Opti-Case Co. in Henderson, TX. They will custom make any case you want and VERY affordable.  We just most of our cases there.  Good luck!
