I've got a great case for my LP's but I'm having a bugger of a time trying to find something to store 100+ 7"s. Does anyone have any suggestions on name brands or web sites with good cases?

Thank you

Can't help with a url, or brand names. As most 45s cases seem to be done by friend of friends in garden sheds

Maybe following option not for the stylists , but def one for those who think "hang on instead of paying 40 quid, could get some more vinyl for that".

Check out b and q, have toolboxes that can hold about 200 45s with no modifications, available in various shades of plastic, complete with handle, place for locks and handy compartmenta

All somewhere around 8 quid!!

Ok not as streetsmart as these records bags or flight cases and do open up the possibilities of getting mistaken as the washing machine repair man, but do the job and a cheap option for at home storage.

If after bit more style, halfords do metal style ones, similar size for a few quid more

Other option is Mattlan have cosmetic cases which hold 50+ 45s , flight case, leopard skin and more design, complete with combination lock and also a mirror!

These do the job fairly well and give hours of entertainment to some when notice its true origns!

As the "washing machine mechanic" look may not be everyones fav, anyone post up any contacts??

I think most DJ shops would be able to get you a 7" flight case. I've got two - one holds about 600 and the other about 150.

The 150 case came from a shop in Brighton, name escapes me, they seem to make them to order. It's a great case, handy size and very strong.

Wow, thank you all so much for your replies. I guess you're mostly from the UK. I'm going to look into these places you've suggested but I live in British Columbia, Canada so the exchange with the pound is horrible. If anyone knows of any North American locations, that'd be great.

Thank you again,

Try www.covers33.com they do some good ones. They offer 100/200/500 boxes in wood & aluminium. Prices from about £25.

I have had one recently with no problems. Free next day delivery too.


I bought an aluminium one about six months ago and although it seems a bit flippsy with owt in it, it's turned out to be a well worth the purchase.
