Not deep enough for a 4/4 violin!

Pros: Generally nicely finished and sturdy for a budget case

Cons: Not enough depth inside to actually accommodate a 4/4 sized violin. With a violin in the case the lid cannot fully be shut without forcing it a bit and hence squashing the bridge into the violin body. Any impacts on the lid of the case would be transmitted directly into the instrument too. I tried 3 violins and all had the same problem so it wasn't just an unusually tall bridge causing the problem.

shoulder rest doesn't fit inside case, so impract.
2 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: Good ruck-sac shoulder straps for easy carrying. Good and light. Fits my son's 3/4 violin perfectly. Lovely red velvet look to it.

Cons: One massive con about this case is that a Kun ( or similar ) shoulder rest does not fit inside the case. There is a pocket on the outside that is can squish into ( moving the feet around to as flat as poss ). The photo of the case on the web-site is mis-leading, as it shows a long open oblong area where the scroll of the violin goes. It looks like one would be able to fit a shoulder rest alongside the scroll. In reality, this area is boxed in, making only enough space for the scroll. Well, it looks nice, but it is wasted space, and so impractical and badly designed in this respect.

Other: Photo shows full size case. We have now amended the product description.

Nice enough case, but did not fit our 3/4 violin
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Basic solid case, keenly priced

Cons: Did not fit my child's 3/4 violin. It seems there is quite some variation in the actual dimensions of 3/4 instruments - ours has a body measuring 338mm in length, and that is too large for this case's moulding.
