Storage boxes for larger scores and orchestral parts
Date: July 7, 2011
My University has a great collection of Gamble boxes - enough to last us for decades for the traditional octavo size scores.
We do, however, need something larger for ECS scores and for orchestral scores and parts. Gamble does make boxes for these sizes-
Their Deluxe Filing Boxes are 9.5x12.75x3 - they will hold the ECS and other scores in the 8.5x11 size, but they cost $8.15 each for less than 100.
Their Music Shelf Boxes are 11.5x15x3.5 and will hold the orchestral scores but they cost $19.65 each for 11 or more.
those are high prices. I am willing to pay that to secure and protect the music, but I wonder if there are other options you have found for secure storage of these larger format scores.
