Freer Percussion products are well known around the world for being the most unique and creative designs, materials and covering techniques. It’s our goals to have FP remain first in its class and a clear leader in the orchestral percussion market.
The Freer Percussion Vertical Stage Case is designed to be the ultimate audition case as well as the most practical multi function case on stage. This case is suitable for percussion, timpani, drum set, marimba or all at the same time. Tall enough to take many sets of marimba mallets and bass drum mallets and versatile enough to just use for drum set gigs. With everything standing up right on stage you get super easy access to everything you need. The five internal pouches included keep all varieties of mallets separate and organized for easy access. Each pouch is longer than the other but they can easily be cuffed to your desired length depending on the length of mallets you want to keep in them. You can even keep your triangle and beaters in one pouch, music in another and mallets in the rest, your options are endless. This also makes this the ultimate audition case because it enables you to get on stage and place any group of mallets right by that instrument quickly and quietly, without fumbling around in your case looking for them. For percussion and timpani auditions you have enough room for everything in this one case so you don’t have to bring as much on the plane or on stage. Also includes two zippered pouches for music and metronome and more plus another mesh pouch built into the lid for phone, keys or whatever. Shoulder strap included. Keep things in their place and be more organized on stage whether it’s a rehearsal or an audition. Holds as much as two of your average round bags depending on type of mallets. Set it on the floor, open and there you have everything at your fingertips.
The Freer Percussion Classic Soft Case is the "soft" version of the hard case. Extremely lightweight and tough material with reinforced sides for extra protection. Weighs in just under 3lbs empty!! Easily holds 40 to 50 pairs of mallets depending on size and model (measuring 18"x11"x6"). Features original Freer stick holsters built into the lid and two thin storage pouches for music behind. Adjustable lid stays, zippered storage pouch on inside front which can hold sticks not used frequently, phone, mufflers, tuner, forks, pencils and whatever. Zippered storage pouch on outside as well and shoulder strap all included. Over the years many people have asked for something lighter with a shoulder strap that they could really stuff. Here it is, and built to last a lifetime.
The Freer Percussion LARGE Soft Case is patterned after it's little brother. It is the same size as my former "medium" hard case but in the new soft case design. Measuring in at 20" x 13" x 8" it is still extremely lightweight and constructed of the same tough material with reinforced sides for extra protection. Easily holds 60 to 70 pairs of mallets depending on size and model. Features original Freer stick holsters built into the lid and two thin storage pouches for music behind. This model also has two lightweight flexible dividers so that you can shape them anyway you wish and they are held in with Velcro so you can position them anywhere you want or don't use them at all and store them in one of the four different compartments. Adjustable lid stays, zippered storage pouch on inside front which can hold sticks not used frequently, phone, mufflers, tuner, forks, pencils and whatever. Zippered storage pouch on outside as well and shoulder strap all included. Over the years many people have asked for something lighter with a shoulder strap that they could really stuff. Here it is, and built to last a lifetime. All of our soft cases are designed to function best when placed on a chair but are still strong enough to stand alone when necessary.
The Freer Percussion Classic Hard Case is the "small" version of the three hard cases offered in the past measuring 18.5" x 10.5" x 6.75." It features the original Freer designed stick holsters built into the lid and a storage compartment behind them. This compartment will hold three small method books or a good stack of loose sheet music. New this year is an additional stick holster which is stored in the lid compartment and now comes standard with the extra stick holster which is now modified to hang off the back of the case lid as seen on our facebook photos. Comes included with each case. Also has a storage compartment in the back bottom of the case for mufflers, tuning forks, tuner, pencils etc. This compartment also keeps your sticks slightly elevated out of the bottom of the case. Easily holds about 30 pairs of timpani mallets depending on size and model. Other improvements this year includes higher quality nickel plated front latch and leather handle. My original case made in 1990 is still going strong after a lot of touring and hard use. The ideal timpani case for all timpanists and of course auditions when you need one case to handle most everything and have it all set out ready to walk on stage. Perfect for percussionists who want their sticks laid out and easy to grab, perfect for the pit and even many drum set players over the years have adopted this case.
