For Christmas I got this tool roll from Etsy

https://www.etsy.com/listing/753951364/ ... _purchases

You can order it in different sizes: i got the 16 inch size. it has a small zippered pouch that can hold a flute swab , cork grease, and 3-4 whistles up to 16 inches ( sorry, I typed 20 inches before by mistake)

I can get three flutes in it--a keyless, a keyed that shares the headjoint with the keyless, and a Bb. I could easily get a third headjoint in there

My wife sewed a piece of soft fabric inside, so the flutes aren't touching each other. I'm pretty sure you could get the maker to do that.

It's nicely made of sturdy canvas. If normal life ever returns it seems like a good way to transport a few flutes and whistles

Very nice! My wife made something like this for my whistles. One for the high D's and one for the low D's.

I wrote to the maker and sent him the pictures, and he replied that he would make a second design incorporating the "flap."

I'd probably be slightly worried about putting a keyed flute in there though. Couldn't the keys get damaged?

I suppose they could--I'm not planing to throw it around though, and it's not an expensive keyed flute. If it's rolled so the keyed section are on the inside they ought to be pretty well protected.

Would be ideal for my flutes, as they have more of a "tool"-character anyway :D . But I play just one at the moment. And they are in one piece, so I'd need something where the separate sleeves are long enough.

I made something similar for a friend last year. But I'd hesitate to roll a keyed flute. They can be sensitive little buggers. Perhaps if a fleece lining were added it would be OK for keyed flutes. But it does look nice for keyless.

As a former woodwind repair person, I can say without reservation that the majority of damage I saw came from “unplanned” throwing around :D

Funny how that works.

Good choice. Flute flinging never ends well.

Maybe I could pack one flute just for throwing. Assembled, you get more throw weight but disassembled you get more throws
