Trombone means big trumpet-does that mean it is louder?

An army surplus missile launcher case might do. Might be hard to travel with on an airplane though.

Jeff Reynolds actually had his minick BBb contra in a surplus bazooka case, no joke!

This one actually just fits in a large Cronkite double case with the divider removed in the slide pouch and the long tuning slide removed.

I got to hear the Contra played in an ensemble today at the ITA festival. Benn Hansson played it on the bottom part in an all bass trombone ensemble. Benn did an amazing job, and he only had about a day to get used to the beast!

I'm afraid it pretty much consumed his life for a little while. He was using a corner of my exhibit room to practice.
