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)
