Calzone/Anvil at the 2012 I/ITSEC Trade Show

Posted on: December 3rd, 2012

Exhibiting in Booth Number 2931 at the I/ITSEC Conference, December 3rd through 6th: Orange County Convention Center in Orlando Florida.

The Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) was initiated in 1966 as a Naval Training Device Conference and has evolved to what has become the largest show of it’s kind. The Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Industry Academia have all joined bringing the best of all training simulation and equipment and philosophy to one event.

As an industry leader, experience has taught us that equipment takes as much of a beating traveling around the country as it does around the globe. At Calzone/ Anvil we help protect freedom with every case we engineer and are proud to be a part of protecting America.

Our team was on the road with the Warped Tour last weekend doing an on-site drum case repair for Rian Dawson, drummer for the successful punk band “All Time Low”. Our cases are built to take just about anything, but every now and then one will loose a battle with a forklift.

That’s why we offer a full repair department to handle these situations. We make the best musical instruments cases money can buy and stand behind them with our lifetime guarantee.

Calzone Returns From SXSW 2012

Posted on: March 26th, 2012

Norah Jones wowed audiences at SXSW 2012 this year.  Norah uses Calzone Cases for her band and her own wardrobe.  Her guitarist Jason Roberts from Brooklyn,  just had a case made for his Jazzmaster guitar.

Green Sky Bluegrass also uses Calzone Cases.   We are making a case for the harmonium right now.

The Calzone/Anvil  booth in the Gear Alley was buzzing with grizzled music vets, wide-eyed newbies and a host of bands looking to protect their musical instruments with the best cases money can buy. This year’s keynote Bruce Springsteen was amazing, and amazingly enough his band was spotted discussing cases with our Pro Tour manager Linda Tilson at the Hyatt Regency. Other speakers included Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart who also use Anvil Cases to protect their gear. Over 16,000 music industry professionals attended SXSW gear alley’s workshops and more. SXSW 2012 is a major international event that offered an unmatched opportunity to talk about music and expand contacts throughout the industry. Bands from Australia , Japan, England , France and all over the US visited our booth at Gear Alley and we would like to thank all of them for making this another great SXSW for Calzone/Anvil.
