I own two of these... affordable, safe protection

I bought two cases, one for both of my instruments, as I find the shipping storage bag from Kala only useful as a dust jacket.

These are beefy enough to protect your instrument safely, while still being very affordable for a hard case. If you travel with your instrument (planes, camping, to friends houses!), then you would do well upgrading to a better case.

Pros:

-very protective

-lightweight

-plush interior keeps your baby safe from scratches or dings; moveable neck pad 'locks' instrument in place so it doesn't jiggle or bump

-substantial box inside to hold picks, capo, tuner, extra strings, or what have you

-double sided zipper makes it fast and easy to open the woven nylon cover on the outside of the case, allowing access to the padded inside

-comfortable, molded hand grip for side carrying

-two adjustable and removable straps for shoulder carrying or wearing backpack style

-strap rings allow the straps to be worn on the side or on the back of the case

-protective cover flap that velcroes over the zipper pulls on the outside cover to keep them from sliding

-good sized outside pocket that zips. On the soprano size, it can hold sheet music and is *just* big enough to squeeze in a standard size music book (8.5" x 11"). On the tenor size it's plenty big enough to hold several music books (handles things up to 9.5" x 11.5").

Cons:

-Not waterproof *

-no plastic or rubber 'feet' on the bottom of the case, so it sits directly on the floor or table, making it more likely…

Better than a "gig bag"

The time is long since past when no reputable dealer would think of selling you any musical instrument worth more than $50 without also including a case. And these days the least expensive default is the infamous "gig bag" which, honestly, offers little more protection for you axe than keeping the dust off of it. I usually buy hard-shell cases for my instruments, but every now and then you run into an odd instrument which will just not fit in a generic case, and for which a custom case might well cost more than the instrument.

Two examples are the Luna Bass Ukulele, and the Kala U-Bass. Both instruments are built around a modified baritone ukulele body, but sport wide "ears" in the form of over-sized bass tuning pegs. There is a rectangular hardshell available for the U-Bass, but it's espensive, too big, and heavy. And, due to the big tuners, neither of these instruments will fit in a conventional bari-uke case.

Which leaves only the dreaded "gig bag" --

-- or this "Foam Hardcase".

This is a great case option for baritone uke, AND it also fits the Luna Bass, or the Kala U-Bass.

Not as sturdy as vinyl-covered plywood, to be sure, but WAY better than a zippered canvas sack.

If somebody accidentally kicks this case, or drops a beer on it, it's not doing to destroy your instrument -- which is really the point of any case.

Well made; compact; reasonably solid; light-weight; and reasonably priced.

If you own any of the funky oddball instruments mentioned,…
