- to replace my old case
- Good Weight
- Great Value
A great case with a few minor issues.
It does all the important stuff well. My violin is easy in and out, secure, and the accessory compartment, while shallow, is big enough for my rosin, cleaning cloth, a set of new strings, and my tuner. The cavity where my violin’s neck and scroll reside fits my Everest shoulder rest just barely but has no Velcro to ensure it stays in place and doesn’t shift into the instrument when carried around. Small strike there. The other small strikes are the lack of an included blanket to keep rosin dust from the bow from dirtying the instrument when the case is closed, and the way that the outer material of the case grabs hold of every bit of dust and dirt it can find making it hard to keep new looking for very long. Lastly, the two clasps that keep it locked are flimsy and I’m not sure I trust them in the long run, but time will tell.
The short story is: it does the important stuff well, but the minor criticisms I have of it make me suspect this will not be my “forever” case.
