Good build & adequate protection. Nice case.
16 out of 19 found the following review helpful

Pros: Quality construction (sturdy clasps, hinges, straps) Attractive (carbon fiber effect) & quirky looks. Comfortable to carry (both handles and "rucksack" straps) Good size 'accessory' section (easily holds shoulder rest [tried Kun & Wolf], strings, rosin, practice mute, pencil and money, with room to spare) Music pouch with divider.

Cons: Tight fit for bows... they only just fit in. Upper and Lower bouts could do with some lateral cushioning (for side-to-side support). Head to toe, front-back and neck support is adequate but body of instrument can move side to side if bumped and the fleece lining isn't exactly "padded" - I'll make some small cushions to add.

Other: Overall this is a really nice case and fulfills the purpose I bought it for - 'lightweight' (lighter than my old oblong case), easy/comfortable rucksack carrying with music pocket.

Grade 8+

sturdy practical violin case

Pros: Quirky violin case. Absolutely super fit for my second violin - a 5 string Tim Phillips fiddle. Strong and secure and e trembly lightweight. I like that a shoulder rest can be anchored into a designated space. Easy to carry as a backpack if required. Very good value for the price. Would highly recommend.

Cons: Would have liked a little more padding inside although this really is a minor detail.

Great style but not the case for me!
2 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: Stylish, sturdy, lightweight.

Cons: The bow fit is extremely snug, so much so that I wasn’t happy to risk using it with my bow. There is space for two bows, but in order for one to fit it has to be placed diagonally, so only suitable for one, really. My son is using the case instead - he’s delighted with it!
