I have a Samsonite briefcase that I use for my harp case. I'm looking to make a foam insert with cutouts for my harps. Does anyone have feedback on this layout or tips for cutting, materials, foam supplier, etc.?

You might check out these guys. You can design the foam for your case based on the dimensions of your Samsonite

Looks like the spam filter ate my post. Try out a site called mycasebuilder.com.

It allows you to design a foam insert (with cut-outs) based on the dimensions of your case

I use Kaizen foam. Its a closed cell foam, like a pool noodle, so it doesn't hold moisture like a couch fusion foam does. You can cut it with a razor knife, but for best results, heat the blade over a candle or with a lighter. Then the knife cuts lt like its soft butter.

Kaizen foam is good. You could also use a high load bearing packaging foam if you can't find any. Or maybe try getting a custom foam insert made?

I stack mine vertically for more space---
Don't know if this will help
here is a MBH post Todd Parrot n others discussing foam options.
