NOTE TO ARTISTS/CRAFTERS FROM HOFF
I am always looking for additional artists/crafters to create new harmonica cases for me.
Since my collection has grown to over 500 cases, I am very careful to seek only unique designs that complement my existing collection.
If you would like to be considered for a commission to produce a case for me, feel free to contact me directly.
For those who I commission to make cases, I provide some general design guidelines - see below for these guidelines.
How to Design a Harmonica Case for Hoff
Rule #1 - There is NO rush
Design discussions with Hoff are welcome by email or phone
Standard size harmonica (e.g. Hohner Bluesband)
4 & 1/8 inches in length – 1 & 1/8 inches wide - 3/4 inches thick (note: this is the size of harmonica that will fit into the case)
Snug fit for harmonica inside the case (minimum wiggle room)
Access to harmonica from case, so it can be easily removed and played
To be worn like necklace - 28 inch neck "strap" from top of case on one side to top of case on other side - or adjustable size strap
Cover – needs some way to protect harmonica from falling out
Name - placed on back of case – HOFF (all capital letters preferred)
