The Thormahlen Case

Harp caseThe Blue Heron case pictured to the right is included in the price of all of our harps. It is a padded Cordura case made by The Blue Heron Case Company located in Northern California. They make cases for all kinds of instruments using the highest quality Cordura and padding. They have worked with us to design a well balanced and easy to use harp case.


Although no Cordura harp case is totally water proof, Sharon had her harp in an incredible downpour that she could not immediately get out of. The case was drenched and the harp was wet. After wiping down the harp, and drying the case, there was not one hint of damage to either the harp or the case to show that it had been in the rain. We were greatly impressed with the performance of the harp case!


The case has large pockets for accessories such as your tuning key, tuner, extra set of strings, music, and music stand. A metal fold up music stand will fit in the large pocket. There are straps and handles just where you want and need them for easy carrying and moving to and from your car.


To put your harp in the case, we recommend that you lay your case on the floor and open it up. Make sure all the levers are in the unengaged position (levers down). Lay your harp in the case with the lever side up. It’s the only way it will fit. Finally, zip it up.

When carrying your harp case we recommend that you put the case strap over your head carrying it on the left shoulder. Reach down with your right hand and grab the handle between the pockets and be on your way.


Cleaning your Case

Here are the instructions for cleaning your harp case straight from the casemakers.

Remove the instrument from the case and start the cleaning process by either vacuuming the dust and dirt off the case or use an air compressor to blow off the dust and dirt. This will give the case a refreshed appearance and may be all that you will need to do.

For any remaining spills or unknown spots you can wash small areas of your case with warm water, liquid dish soap and a cloth rag. On grease or stubborn areas use a small drop of soap and a soft nail brush. Rub gently on the area and rinse well with warm water, mopping up the rinse water with a dry towel as you go. It may take a few soap and rinse sessions to remove grease. Allow time to air dry the case fully before use.

With extreme issues such as cat spraying or tobacco smoke saturation you can completely submerge the case in a tub of luke warm water and hand wash it with a mild liquid dish soap. Employing this cleaning method is for extremely offensive situations only!

Hang the wet case to drip and air dry. Make sure the clean case is completely dry before use.

Use a leather conditioner to restore the leather when the whole case is dry.

Odors are stubborn and you may have to use a scented soap to cover up the offending smell.

If you want to talk about this process or have any questions, give us a call.

NEVER machine wash or dry the case.
