Hello,

The shoulder strap of my case cover snapped a couple of weeks ago and I'm in the market for a new case cover... Also, moved recently to a somewhat humid area, so insulation is now important!

At the moment I'm between a leather cover with velvet lining (Ciprian) and nylon cover with fleece lining (Cavallaro). Has anyone got any experience with either? Or any other suggestions? I like the Ciprian more, but not sure if velvet lining will provide insulation!

Thanks in advance!

Seems that myself and most of my flute playing friends have the Cavallero case covers. I like the protection that the fleece provides.

same brand as your flute if that's available, like as your original one.

Weather can be very extreme here where I live, both in terms of temperature and humidity and I am a big cavallaro cover fan. Most players around here I know seem to favor fleece lined cases.

What brand makes the Miyazawa cases? The fleece lining in mine is amazing.

I just purchased an Altieri case cover for my daughter's new to her flute. Seems like a nice case...made in the USA as well. Fit's the case snugly...

While I have Altieri flute and Alto flute gig bags, and an Altieri case cover that Brannen sent me for my flute, I still like the Cavallero covers better. I think the fleece offers more protection than the quilted Altieri covers. Just my opinion and the opinion of all my flutist friends with professional flutes and Cavallero covers. Your opinion may differ which is fine.

The Cavallero case cover was my first choice but the measurements were slightly shy of my daughters flute case (prof. C foot)...that's why I went with the Altieri. The flute just fits in the Altieri without any room to spare.

I really love my Cavallaro flute & piccolo case cover. I got it from Flute World. It fits my Pearl Elegante wood case and Burkart piccolo case perfectly!

Here's a link to it:

Want an inexpensive, yet durable flute cover for a roaming flute player? (well, by durable, I mean it serves the purpose as a case, and it's not, like, heavy duty) Then go with an Alteri. They're reliable and they perform well as a case.
