It’s an honor for us to be apart of this amazing new book “Made to Last: A Compendium of Artisans, Trades & Projects” by Vanessa Murray! She wrote an amazing feature about us and many other artists in this beautifully designed book. Well worth it just to see all the great things still made by hand throughout the world.

Our Hendrick’s Gin BoomCase takes multiple days to make from start to finish. Because of how much is involved in this BoomCase we decided to put together this little video of some of what goes into making these limited edition BoomCases. Enjoy!
UPDATE: Our store is now up and running 🙂
After nearly 8 years the service we have been using to power our online store is closing down 🙁 ! We are hard at work at making a new web store but are not quite finished with it. On Jan 31 the old store will shut down. We hope to have the new one up and running by next week at the latest but hopefully sooner. In the meantime we will take orders on the Hendricks BoomCase,the BoomBarrel, our new Wooden BoomCases and any custom order. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help.
Thanks for the continued support!
Last November we flew out to Nashville and installed this working BoomCase Speaker Wall in a beautiful house. One year later the owners sent us a picture of how they ended up decorating the room. It’s amazing! See more of how it originally looked here – http://theboomcase.com/nashville-speaker-wall/

Announcing the Hendrick’s Gin x BoomCase collaboration!
Now available in our online store. Read the full press release below:
Hendrick’s Gin is pleased to announce its partnership with The BoomCase, maker of the original rechargeable vintage suitcase boom box, which this week unveiled a one-of- a-kind speaker system that includes a full Hendrick’s Gin Tea Set. The collaboration embodies the eccentricity of the world-renowned gin brand, combined with the innovation of The BoomCase, creating the most unusual electric speaker fit for the most refined tippler and appreciator of the art of entertainment.
Since 2009, The BoomCase founder Dominic Odbert has been creating speaker systems out of
vintage suitcases at his boutique studio in California, crafting a most unique product that blends imaginative sound engineering and superior design. No stranger to curious fusions, Hendrick’s Gin itself is made in tiny batches by a single stillman using a unique distillation technique. With a distinctive blend of botanicals and infusion of cucumber and rose petals, Hendrick’s has captivated the attention and hearts of bartenders and bon vivants alike.
As The BoomCase strives to further push the innovation of sound design while preserving the
heritage of the past, and Hendrick’s continues to surprise and delight its drinkers with the art of the unusual, the two entities are an impeccable match for brilliant revelry.
The limited edition collaboration, of which only 15 BoomCases will be available for purchase, will feature a 100 watt amplifier powering two 6.5″ woofers, one 5″ midrange speaker and four dome tweeters, offering full balanced sound in a portable package. The rechargeable lithium battery provides over 18+ hours of playtime per charge through an auxiliary cable or wirelessly via Bluetooth. The structure itself is handmade from birch wood and features leather trim, harris tweed and steel hardware. In addition to the speaker system, a Hendrick’s Gin Tea Set consisting of one tea pot, two tea cups, two saucers and a placeholder for a 750-ml. bottle (bottle not included) are all incorporated to aid in the celebration.
‘The collaboration between Hendrick’s Gin and The BoomCase was created with the aim to provide
its recipients with an extraordinary experience that can transcend the test of time, as only music and merriment can do. We hope that this most unusual way to toast the town while listening to tunes will be an absolute delight to its owner,” said Fred Parent, Hendrick’s Gin Ambassador.
This unique item is available for purchase only at http://store.theboomcase.com/. For more information
on Hendrick’s, please visit www.hendricksgin.com. Product information, hi-res imagery and additional materials are available upon request. Please enjoy the unusual and jam responsibly.

We had the enormous pleasure of sharing the BoomCase at the Food Network, New York City Food and Wine Festival (NYCWFF). For two days world renowned chefs, culinary rock-stars and media personalities had a chance to experience BoomCases first hand as a part of the “Thank You Lounge” curated by GBK Productions.
The festival took place at Pier 92 in a 130,000 foot pavilion filled with chefs and wine makers prepared to wow you with small bites and signature drinks. Wine enthusiasts, food-bloggers, editors, and restaurant industry leaders enjoyed a variety of rare and cult favorite brands with a range of diverse offerings from Japanese wagu beef to New Orleans Pralines (this explains the mardi gras beads we found in our suitcases). Cooking demonstrations played on flat screens from multiple stages as Food Network stars did what they do best in front of live audiences.
In the GBK Thank you Lounge we had the opportunity to share the Boom with Emeril Lagasse, Marcus Samuelsson, Patti Labelle, Neil Patrick Harris, Rachael Ray, Andrew Zimmern, Adam Richman and many more on their way to and from cookbook signings and shows. The response was incredible and watching the way each guest interacted with the BoomCases created the need for this post.
Rachael Ray won the award for longest “Wooow,” and we’re happy to know Chef Marcus Samuelsson is a vintage suitcase collector. Can’t wait to get started on all of the cases for our new fans. Check out the pictures to see more from the event and thank you to everyone who stopped by. We’re also glad we were able to DJ from our BoomCase, and kept everyone in the suite dancing.
Need a new radio for your Vintage Ford? Your Porsche? Morris Minor? We got you covered. Instead of putting a garish new car stereo in, many people have been opting for a BoomCase. This gives you the classic look while removing the hassle of running wire and cutting holes for speakers. Shoot us an email if you have questions about which BoomCase will fit best in your car.
Introducing a new section on our website “Featured BoomCase Owners” ! We wouldn’t be here without their support and we love how diverse they are. So each month we will be showcasing a couple of BoomCase owners and the what, when and where of their BoomCase. Plus some interesting stories like our first featured owner Lisa Busby, a professor of Music at Goldsmiths in London, who uses her BoomCase for portable sound art projects. Or how Swizz Beatz bought Julian Hines BoomCase directly from him after hearing it.
Check out the new section here – LINK – and if you are a BoomCase owner and we have not contacted you yet – feel free to shoot us an email if you would like to share your story. Thanks for all the support everyone!
Over the years we have been creating home and outdoor vintage trunk sound systems for various business and homes. Now we are offering them direct on our website! The trunks can be fitted with turntables, batteries for outdoor use and are still able to fully close.Take a look at the few examples below and learn more in our online store (LINK).
Introducing our latest take on vintage suitcases – “WoodGrain” BoomCases – We take the suitcases and remove the outer layer to expose the beautiful wood frame. Then we can either stain the wood any color or just oil rub them to bring out the natural color and grain. Here are a few examples and check out our online store to see more.
Happy New Year! Big thanks to everyone who helped make 2014 our busiest year yet.
Just before the new year Urban Outfitters sent out a team to our studio for a feature on their website. Read the whole interview here + see more pictures. Look out for more BoomCases in Urban Outfitters stores + new ones coming to our online store in the next coming weeks.

We are excited to be a part of Gorilly’s Beta launch in San Francisco along with Topo Designs and DODOcase. Gorilly (www.gorilly.com) is an innovative new web application that lets people try products (like BoomCase) in person before buying them online (you would buy directly through The BoomCase website).
With Gorilly, you can try a BoomCase in person and get feedback from an actual product owner – it’s as simple as two people meeting! It’s a cool way to get a feel for the quality of BoomCase products in person, and then pick the one you want on our website. The Beta is just in San Francisco for now – take a look at www.gorilly.com. If you are in SF sign up and share : )
