RE: [Harp-L] Foam inserts for harp cases?

My main case is an old, beat up, small tweed suitcase. To hold the harps and
mic, I ordered online " Pick 'N' Pluck" replacement foam for a Pelican case.
It's available online from various sources. Do a search on "Pelican
replacement foam" and find a size that fits your case.
For example, here's a link to for the various sizes they
carry: .

In my homemade case I used a $2.00 Walmart fishing tackle box that has 6
compartments. I then bought copper pipe insulation for about $3.00. The
insulation comes in various lengths, like 4, 6 ft. Get the right sizing
(which I forget, maybe 1 inch diam.?) Cut the lengths to fit inside the
compartments of the tackle box and they fit perfectly.
