      Do Not Buy This Case

      By George Stavis

      from Dobbs Ferry, NY

      Comments about Gator GC-BANJO-XL Deluxe ABS Banjo Case:

      The case is terribly, and fatally, poorly designed.The completely fatal flaw is the design of the strap holders. A singly-bolted device holds a rather thin ring. If the pressure is not distributed evenly on the ring, the ring bends and pops out of the holder. The banjo goes splat on the floor. My did, on a concrete floor at any airport. The ring is not nearly strong enough, and is not properly located by two bolts. This is a completely unacceptable design flaw.Other flaws abound. The effort to make a "one-size fits all" case, while attractive from a manufacturing perpective, fails completely. My banjo resonator is 13-1/2 inches in diameter, the completely standard size. The Gator case provides a 14" diameter for the resonator, meaning, of course, that the instrument is bouncing around 1/2" at all times. As in when it hit the concrete floor. Of course, this is way too large for open-back banjos.The case is designed to accommodate long-neck banjos (maybe 5-10% of the market), as well. In addition to the fact that these are always open-back banjos (for which the round section is way too large), it works very poorly for shorter necks, to say nothing of having an unnecessarily oversized case for 90-95% of the market.Lastly, the storage pocket is ridiculously small. Cannot even fit a box of strings in it. This case should not be on the market without a major redesign. Muscian's Friend sent me another case, just available, their Musician's Gear Fiberglass case. More expensive, but absolutely worth it.

      Gator ABS Banjo-xl case

      By Ernst-aYLHb

      from Missoula, MT

      Comments about Gator GC-BANJO-XL Deluxe ABS Banjo Case:

      This case when compared to a Gibson case is good for low end insturments. A Granada resinator has about an inch of clearance around it, and the neck has about four extra inches. The box inside is small compared to the space avalible inside. The Gibson Granada is not held in place securly. But, for the money it can be made to work with towels, etc. Note: the XL stands for Extra Large and it is! The outside is very hard but the valiance is a bit slopy.

      Gator GC-Banjo-XL Deluxe ABS Case

      By banjoboy

      from grand island, NY

      Comments about Gator GC-BANJO-XL Deluxe ABS Banjo Case:

      this case is awesome!!! it is well worth the money. it is very solid and should last a long time. the gator case material is very sturdy and really should last a lifetime. the pictures make it look pretty ugly- it is a great looking case up close. i gave it a 4.5 in features because the accessory pouch was a little small... This Case is Great!!!
