How to Measure and Trace

For Rectangular Cases:

If you are ordering a rectangular casecover requiring measurements, you must submit EXACT case dimensions. Do not add any extra inches to the measurements. We will make sure that the cover fits the case comfortably.

 

For all dimensions, please specify inches or centimeters. Use the following guide to provide us your measurements:

1. Length of case
2. Width of case
3. Depth of case
4. For Woodwind cases: is the top of the case to the right or left of the center handle?
