I'm not getting E-mail responses from Jeffrey Spoor, who does high quality leather work for harmonica cases and belts. Does anyone know if his Cumberland Custom Cases is still in business?
The site is:
Order by DateAscendingDescending
Did you try the his phone number listed there? Also, the last update to that page was over two years ago, so he might very well be not in business anymore. :)
MAn Rudy,..Read the big flashing INFO on his site ???
I'm hoping that someday he'll again be taking orders for his excellent products. Having that message flash for two years doesn't look promising. No big deal, just wanted to know if anyone had any additional info.
he is just starting to begin work on his great cases again.
Eric - Thank you for that info. - Rudy
Jeff has recently moved his entire operation. He is also WWW.HarpMicGaskets.com and is a very busy guy. You may have fallen through the cracks but try again.

I ordered a case from there almost 2 yrs ago, paid for it (had an email contact with the owner several times) and then it never came.. Tried to contact the owner in different ways, no help. I'm so dissapointed, bc I wanted to give it to someone who loves playing harmonica.
MV - Sorry to hear about your experience with Cumberland Custom Cases. That website now appears to have been taken down and HarpMicGaskets.com makes no mention of leather cases for sale. So unless someone has solid evidence otherwise, I would assume Mr. Spoor is out of the custom leather case biz.
I personally don't want a wooden case with foam cut-outs. So if anyone knows of other leather cases, please post them. Buckeye Leather: http://www.buckeyeleather.com/ has some, but I'd like to investigate other sources before I buy there. I liked how Mr. Spoor preformed the pockets to your specific harmonica type. Buckeye wants you to re-wet the leather yourself, which won't look as nice in my opinion. Thanks.
