Very Cool. I make mine with cigar boxes and heating unit foam, works great. Wire and tape for the handle, gives me an authentic hobo look.

Well, I do lighting at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences and my eye Dr. has been on my case for looking into them for so many years. It has been taking a toll on my eye sight. I may do videos with them on but when I need to use hand tools they come off for sure.

My eyes are extra sensitive to sunlight all my life and have had several eye operations when I was a kid at Duke University. I sure appreciate all of you looking at my videos. Over at Modern Blues Harmonica I know how to embed a video into a message but I cannot get it to work here.Any advise?

Also,here are a couple of video demos on the "Pignose" PG-20 that I did last weekend.

Great idea!

If others want to try making their own with various kinds of cases I STRONGLY suggest going to and joining the group which corresponds to their local areas asap.

Freecycle is awesome for getting rid of clutter or finding something you`ve been looking for and nothing on there is for sale.Everything is given away!

Where did you get the foam? I think I am missing that info somewhere.

I just realized that I have an aluminum briefcase style art case I used to use for carrying matted prints around in when I would show them to gallery curators.

So,tomorrow I buy the foam for the inside and by sometime Thursday night i`ll have my harmonica case.

I am rather annoyed right now with myself,lol.

It had been years since I have actually opened the case I mentioned before.

I doesn`t open like a briefcase at all.It opens from the top like a pack of cigarettes.

Guess i`ll have to go back to square one and get a briefcase.
