    6 Good Reasons to choose a Rabbath'case© for Instrument

    1-The Rabbath'case© weight  35 pounds!  The exceptional fusion of
    Kevlar, and  Carbon - vacuum bagging technique* - gives the case
    all the characteristics required for creating:
    Lightness, Strength, Durability.

    2-The Rabbath'case© front and the back are completely removable.
    This allows the option to stow the case nested, eliminating the
    burden of huge  volume, when storing between uses.

    3- The Rabbath'case©’ unique "SUSPENDER system"  (patented)
    suspends the double bass 5 inches from the walls of the case,
    totally protecting the instrument from the outside world. No harmful
    vibrations can reach the instrument.

    4- The Rabbath'case© offers a totally unique "SUSPENDER'
    system"  (patented).
    This eliminates use of foam, which causes more contact between
    instrument and the exterior.  Foam also increases weight.

    5- The Rabbath'case© keeps your instrument drier and helps speed
    customs checks. Removal of the double bass is now unnecessary.  

    6- All Rabbath'case© are 100% guaranteed!

    INSTRUMENT MEASUREMENTS  For those situations where instrument is

    Step 1: Use rolled paper 36" inches in width
    (Staples has Bienfang® Paper Poster Rolls, 36"W x 25 yds., White
    Paper ). If impossible to find, please choose something similar.

    Step 2: Roll out paper on flat surface. Cut 2 pieces, each approximately
    8 inches longer than the instrument. Place them side by side, and
    overlap until you have enough width to draw the silhouette of your
    instrument with a 3-inch margin on sides. Tape securely along the middle.

    Step 3: - Lay down instrument approximately 4 inches from top,
    leaving 3 inches on each side.

    Step 4: Beginning from paper edge, using a soft pencil, carefully trace
    instrument around edges.

    Step 5: Mark the position of the bridge and measure it's highest point.

    Step 6: Cut paper, leaving 2 inches at base and top of instrument.

    Step 7: Roll and mail in tube available at an office supply or possibly
    your post office. Priority Mail Packaging is free, if tube size is available.
    If necessary to fold paper to fit into tube, fold along edges.
    Be sure that tape is not disturbed.

    *Introduction of vacuum bagging technique:

    An ideal fiberglass layup minimizes the amount of resin because resin by
    itself adds weight without adding strength. When doing fiberglass layup
    by hand, it is hard to get the minimum amount of resin because you need
    enough to soak the cloth and the cloth doesn't lay completely flat against
    the surface. The solution to this is vacuum bagging.

    Vacuum bagging uses atmospheric pressure to press the cloth tightly
    against the surface being covered so that the excess resin is squeezed
    out and soaked up in a disposable outer wrap. This technique requires a
    vacuum bag, vacuum pump capable of pulling a significant vacuum (at
    least 25 inches of mercury) and various accessories and supplies. Thus
    vacuum bagging has been mostly restricted to large commercial use.
No harmful vibrations can reach
the instrument.

                                                                            Mode d'emploi de la "Rabbath'case" pour la premiere fois.
                                                      Directions for use of the "Rabbath'case" the first time.

    1- La caisse est toujours allongee, pour l'ouvrir ou la fermer.
    A- Case must be in a horizontal position (laid flat) when opening and closing.

    2- Enlever la pic.
    B- Take off the endpin.

    3- Elargisser la 5eme ceinture qui passera SOUS le bas de la contrebasse afin de lui donner de l'espace mais ne l'ouvrer pas completement.
    C- Without detaching hook, loosen the 5th belt, which goes under the bass.

    4- Ouvrer les 4 ceintures qui traversent la caisse horizontalement, ouvrer les completement.
    D- Open the other 4 belts completely.

    5- Placer la contrebasse avec sa housse au millieu de la caisse sur les 4 ceintures ouvertes.
    E- Place the bass, with its gig bag, in the middle of the case on the 4 opened belts.

    6- Verifier que la contrebasse s'enfonce suffisamment dans la caisse  (environ 10 cm). si necessaire, serrer ou donner du mou a l'elastique en
    desserrant les anneaux de serrage.
    F- Bass should sit deep (approximately 4 inches) into the case.  If necessary, tighten or loosen the elastic, using the 2 rings attached to the elastic.

    7- Serrer les 4 ceintures horizontales, en serrant bien et surtout en comprenant que la ceinture de droite tire la basse sur la droite l'empechant d'aller sur
    sa gauche, et la ceinture de gauche tire sur le cote gauche l'empechant d'aller sur sa droite.
    En d'autre termes, les ceintures placees horizontalement sont pour empecher tout mouvement horizontal de la contrebasse.
    G- Tighten the 4 belts well.  Keep in mind that the belt located on the right keeps the bass from moving to the left, and the belt located on the left keeps
    the bass from moving to the right.   In other words, the 4 belts are keeping the Bass from all horizontal movements.

    8- Placer la 5eme ceinture sous la contrebasse en faisant passer la "double ceinture" de chaque cote de l'attachement de la pic, et serrer la boucle.
    H- Place the 5th belt under the bass, the "double belt" should go on each side of the attachment of the en-pin.  Tighten the belt

    9- Attacher la boucle elastique autour de l'attachement de la pic.
    I- Attach the elastic, located on the bottom, around the metal attachment of the endpin.

    10- Verifier bien la balance entre la 5eme ceinture et la boucle elastique. Ici, ces deux elements doivent empecher le mouvement verticale de la
    contrebasse. Si la contrebasse est trop basse, tacher de tirer sur la 5eme ceinture, sans toutefois faire toucher la tete de la contrebasse contre la caisse
    bien entendu (garder 5 cm de distance de securite entre la tete et la caisse).
    J- Examine the balance of the tension between the 5th belt and the elastic bottom. Here, these two elements must stop any vertical movement of the bass.
    If the bass is too close to the bottom, pull it up with the 5th belt, but also avoid getting the head of the bass too close to the top of the case (keep 2 inches

    11- Placer le couvercle de la caisse. Le couvercle aura tendance a pousser vers vous, ce qui est normal. Vous devrez appuyer pour fermer le couvercle.
    La pression doit etre suffisamment forte pour tenir bien la contrebasse, mais pas trop pour vous empecher de fermer. ici, s’il est necessaire de regler la
    tension de l'elastique du couvercle, veuiller desserrer les anneaux de serrage, et donner du mou. Il n'y a pas de reglage universel car chaque
    contrebasse a sa propre dimension. Vous devez rechercher la tension ideale entre les deux elastiques (couvercle et receptacle), afin que votre
    contrebasse soit bien maintenue sans toutefois vous poser un probleme de fermeture de la caisse. Un travail de patience, mais definitif, car ce reglage
    ne se fait que pour sa premiere utilisation.
    K- When closing the cover of the case, you may have to gently push down, since the elastic will give some resistance. On the other hand, if the tension of
    the elastic is too strong, loosen the elastic by opening the 2 rings attached to the elastic for this purpose.
    The fit of the bass should be snug, but also allow you to close the cover.  Since each bass is different, there is no universal tension of elastic.  For that
    reason, you will need to adjust it to your bass' size.  This will only be necessary upon first use.

    12- Fermer les  fermetures en caoutchouc.
    L- Close the  rubber locks.

    13- Redresser la caisse, et n'hesiter pas a secouer la caisse. La contrebasse devrait a peine vibrer. Votre contrebasse est en total suspension.
    M- Stand the case upright, and don't hesitate to shake it.  The bass should only "vibrate" inside the case. You will feel immediately that your bass is
    floating inside,..... suspended.
