Take a tour through our site!
We do not stock unbranded cases of inferior quality- nor do we use 'made-up' names for our case models- the reason this is sometimes done by others is purely to confuse the buyer, and mask the true pricing, making it impossible to compare prices easily. Hopefully you will find what you are looking for- this site is the new re-designed SoundPost simplified site, so if you do not find it easy to use, please contact us and say so- we will try to improve it- your feedback will be welcomed.
We try to hold all the products listed in stock- (We are the only UK shop to hold Accord cases, all models, in stock for example). However, there are times when a particular model or colour is 'sold out' and stock delivery may vary from time to time- some cases, especially those of BAM which are notoriously in short supply, can take many months to come back into stock- however we are pleased to be able to offer a priority waiting list in these instances. We are also able to order as a 'special' any case that the manufacturers offer. eg Musafia, where almost all models are done to order only, and for viola cases where many are made only to pattern. We can also offer custom artwork for all Accord models.
Not all products s we stock are listed on the site however- so if you do not find what you want, call and ask- we may well have it, or know where to get it and can order for you. We are always pleased to discuss and advise, and give you the best advice on the case most suitable for your application. Opening times and all contact details, directions etc. on our 'Contact' page.
