Dual-chambered instrument carrying case
Patent No. 6,029,804
Issued: Feb. 29, 2000
Inventor: Flynn; Timothy R. (Elkhorn, WI)
Assignee: Ameritage, Ltd. (Elkhorn, WI)
An improved musical instrument carrying case combines a well-placed storage space for bows and accessories with a humidity control system to completely protect and preserve the instrument. The case includes a base and an upper lid which together form the outer surface of the case. Inside the case, a lower lid divides the case into two compartments. A first compartment is formed between the lower lid and the base of the case, while a second compartment is formed between the lower lid and the upper lid. The first compartment is preferably lined with a protective padding which has a molded primary chamber for the instrument. In addition to the primary chamber, a humidity control system and an accessory chamber are preferably between the lower lid and the base of the case. Within the second compartment is a cache for a plurality of bows or other accessories.
By separating the instrument and bows into two different compartments, the life of bow hairs and the wooden body of the instrument is prolonged. The addition of the humidity control system ensures the proper temperature and humidity to completely protect and preserve the instrument.
