What Are Your Needs
As mentioned before, with a limited budget, you may have more limited options.
However, you can find a great violin case for $400 that is extremely protective and durable.
It may be on the heavier side, but if you don’t mind the extra few pounds, it can definitely be a great option that fits within your budget.
Or maybe your simply getting a gift for a young violinist who’s still in high school. Maybe the violin itself isn’t that expensive, but you simply need a lightweight violin case.
The poor kid is already carrying a heavy school backpack everyday!
In this scenario, a $200 violin case with a fun design can be the perfect option. It may not be all that durable and protective. But why get an expensive case if the violin itself is not that expensive?
