A world-renowned company for going on 50 years with a focus on quality and craftsmanship, Calton is known for its uniquely shaped flight cases made for instruments from mandolin and banjo to concert cellos, violins as well as some of the worlds best handmade guitars. Using only the finest quality materials and custom fitted to your instrument’s precise specifications, carrying your career in a Calton case is truly a matter of art protecting art.
When your instrument lives with you on the road, one thing is for certain. The only thing between your gear and sure destruction is a good case!

From the materials used to the craftsmanship and fit, they make a case that is hands down considered by touring professionals and concert-grade musicians alike to be the best around. But how does a company with such a longstanding reputation innovate? How do they continue to stay relevant in a world of cheapo options and knock offs galore?
