Found here we are told about an oboe case:

Cordura with leather trim bag has a separate compartment for each joint to prevent damage. A plush pouch holds 3 bocals. SKB is Musician’s Friend’s premier supplier of instrument and gear cases. SKB builds their products with military-spec, ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene and premium hardware. All SKB hardshell cases are unconditionally guaranteed forever. That means if you break it, they will repair or replace it at no cost to you.

Anyone spot the error?

But Musician’s Friend probably doesn’t have a clue what the error is. Heh.

I do believe the Selmer Oboe that the case is holding is probably the appropriate instrument for the case, though. 🙂


  1. I should get that case. I’ve been wondering what do do with all my oboe bocals.

  2. But it only holds THREE … I’m sure you have a lot more oboe bocals. 😉

    What a sign that the store doesn’t know what the heck they are selling, eh?

  3. Thats really funny! They probably mean something else, wonder what…

    Besides, I don’t think it’s a very nice case…..

  4. My guess would have been that they meant it comes with a case for oboe reeds, not something for bocals. But the “plush pouch” sure does make you wonder, doesn’t it?

    And no, I wouldn’t buy that case.

  5. bifocals?
