Selecting the Proper Music Filing Folder Type

When to choose v-base folders or box-bottom folders

Most of your music (85%) on the average) will fit in the v-base compartments.  The v-base compartments will expand up to 1 1/2" for thicker selections; but if your music is only 1/4" thick, that's all the shelf space it will take.  Also, the v-base compartments use gravity to support the sides of the music (so it won't curl up in there). 


A small selection of 1" and 2" box bottom compartmentscan be nice if you have some selections that are thicker.  The use for the 3" size is pretty rare.


I absolutely LOVE the music filing system. I'm trying to get the high school to get them!
