Blue Monarch CaseBass Suitcase Bass Drum with chrome and nickel hardware and navy stained 16" shell

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


This is a 50’s monarch case in a navy vinyl with black veining. It’s outfitted with a 16” maple shell in a “worn navy” stain and features a birch internal frame that is also stained in “worn navy”. It features hand machined, solid brass free floating lugs, a chrome kickport, nickel no-flange hoops, chrome claws and grommets - four nickel spurs and nickel mounts. CaseBass systems are patented for their design and features which provide a sound that is unparalleled and a product that is built to last a lifetime (or more). Our solid brass, adjustable pedal mount is hand-machined (along with our lugs and badges) by artisans in California. Our shells are stained and lacquered to perfection and are completely “Virgin” shells.

All cases are 100% custom and made to order. Listings are here for inspiration. Feel free to message us with your vision and we will create a quote for you!

Ingenious design with amazing build quality! This is perfect for someone like me who is constantly moving around and is never able to drum in one specific practice spot.
David was on point with the communication, and even pitched in ideas to help make my case come out better than I could've imagined it.
The thing looks cool, sounds awesome, and seems like it'll be durable enough to last me a lifetime!

Casebase is a pleasure to work with. They keep you up to date on a weekly basis which tells you how much they care about the craft. An extreme amount of TLC goes into making these and they look/sound amazing. I can’t tell you how happy I am with my overall design. You guys got to get one of these!

If you do a YouTube search for "suitcase kick drum" then you will quickly find that CaseBass is in a league of their own. Where is there a builder who does the exquisite kind of work these guys do?

The CaseBass crew is attentive to fine details and very passionate about producing top shelf pieces of functional art. If you want to take a dive into the world of suitcase bass drums, then I wholeheartedly recommend you drop these guys a line.
