The school I work for is in the process of purchasing 15-20 mouthpieces for trumpet, horn, trombone, and tuba. Along with this we would like to invest in a LOCKING display case for them. I know that Bach has one, though it doesn't lock. Do any of you know of any other companies that make something like this?

Buy a small locking cabinet.  Put a yarn spool rack in it.  Can probably get both at a local fabric shop for way less than any mouthpiece case.

Cheers,

Sounds like a shop project!

This is a pretty darn good discussion Forum (as they go). But as far as actual playing advice is concerned, don't let it take the place of an instructor you can relate to one-on-one.

Check out this thread where someone posted a pic of their mouthpieces on a spool rack. Seems like a good idea.

It doesn't for me either. Whomever posted that pic must have deleted it from his photo host site.

Me neither. Either he or his photo server deleted it.

I like the idea of a shop project.  A wood plank with a bunch of 1/4" holes each of which has a 2 inch piece of 1/4" dowel would be perfect for what he wants to do.  Put the plank inside a small locking cabinet and you're good to go.

Or a variant of the key cabinet: The plank goes on the back wall.  Holes are drilled at a 45 degree angle.  The key cabinet locks, and that protects the collection of mouthpieces inside.

I'm sorry guys, I didn't check before I posted to make sure it was still there. I just remember looking at it awhile back and did not even think to check and see if it was still there. A dumb mistake on my part  :/
