I recently took an order for a custom hand-stitched box-style case for a Hohner 280. The client requested an all-black case, black outer leather, black pigskin lining and black stitching. This is what resulted. A fun case to build. I like the midnight- black look.
You can see the nickel plated “Sam Browne” button, the mushroom-shaped button over which the leather strap with the slotted hole fits to hold the case closed. Also shown is the protective block that holds the harmonica firmly so that the button doesn’t get pushed accidentally.
On the left you can see the hand stitching along the end cap and dust cover. The bottom view of the case reveals my maker’s mark on the end of the closure strap and the bottom end of the “Chicago Screw” that anchors the protective button block in place.
I’ll make one for you to your specification today for only $150 plus postage and insurance.
