Ameritage® launches Nouveau™ weight-less cases

Ameritage® Carrying Cases, a GWW Group brand, has launched a completely unique, new style of lightweight musical instrument case for band instruments using a patented technology process developed by Ameritage®. The new construction process combines the protective qualities professional musicians seek from traditional wooden cases, with the popular, lighter weight aspect today's molded cases and gig bags offer. With this new case design, musicians will no longer need to compromise.

The "Nouveau™ Weight-Less Case" line by Ameritage® will surprise musicians, because these cases appear to be heavy duty and substantial – like traditional Ameritage® cases. Yet when you pick them up, the weight is significantly reduced. Ameritage® has maintained those components they feel to be essential in quality case design. Exterior sides are constructed of strong 6-ply hardwood veneer, which allows the case to breath, and features Ameritage's traditional valance closure, heavy duty brass latching hardware, plus a new, palm-formä padded handle. But unlike original Ameritage® cases, the top and bottom are contour manufactured using a unique reaction injection molding system. This multi-density, lightweight system maximizes shock absorption and features an incredibly strong, protective shell which is then covered in soft foam and lastly, finished in highly abrasion resistant, UV protected, 1000 denier DuPont Cordura® Plus fabric. Ameritage® is introducing this band instrument line using the popular original Ameritage® taupe and burgundy color combinations. Inside the case, a three-part construction process creates a tailored, gentle compression-fit shock absorption system to securely nest the instrument for ultimate protection. Luxurious soft velour fabric, which protects the instrument from abrasions and scratches, is fused to the sub-layer.
