Have any of you experimented with makeshift cases for any of your instruments? I have been trying to find a solution to moving my M75 to a new city. The Beiner Bags are expensive ($1000+) and take a little while to make/ship.

I had the idea to try using bicycle bags to move the larger pieces and ski cases for the rails. They are reasonably cheap and widely available on Amazon. Bars I always move with roller suitcases. Are there any other improvised bags that work well?

I've used these to wrap the ends and use a few bungee cords (or soft rope) to hold it all together.

The rails I've rolled each rail one at a time so there's full wrap of cloth before I add the next rail.

One more moving blanket for the damper bar.…

You can get huge beach towels cheap and the local big box store and wrap the bars before they go in a wheeled suitcase.
