    Re: Who makes a good Fiddle/Mandolin case?

    Well I hadn't asked, but since you mention it, when cases advertise suspension, what does that mean?? I'm coming from mechanical backgrounds and suspension means springs and shock absorbers beneath...

    Re: Looking for something darker and throatier

    Re: Who makes a good Fiddle/Mandolin case?

    Well, probably not, people around here are very creative, but it's not into refinement. Things function but they aren't smooth about it.
    Also, I relocated to TX in January (I'm in Africa visiting...

    Re: Who makes a good Fiddle/Mandolin case?

    That is correct, but it will still be an upgrade. I've seen the bobelock wooden mandolin case, and it's much more sturdy than my current case.

    Re: Who makes a good Fiddle/Mandolin case?

    Thanks y'all! I think I'm gonna buy the bobelock case. I've needed a case upgrade for both instruments, and this kills two birds with one stone!

    Re: Who makes a good Fiddle/Mandolin case?

    Well, I've just been looking at bobelock and crossrock and that seems to be about the price they sell fiberglass for.

    Thanks for the responses!! I'll look closely at the Bobelock case.
    Also, I...

    Who makes a good Fiddle/Mandolin case?

    So recently I've been traveling a lot with my fiddle and mandolin, and on planes I usually carry one on and check the other inside a suitcase. Well, I just flew and had my mandolin in it's case...
