      I bought this case during a holiday sale, and I feel I got an excellent deal. I was buying this for an Irish bouzouki, as they usually fit fine in a 5-string banjo case. The only issue that worried me was the length from the strap button to the top of the neck joint, which is longer on a bouzouki than a round banjo head. Fortunately, it fit perfectly, but with no room to spare (15.5" in case anyone else is buying it for the same reason).

      As others have noted, this case will require some additional padding in the body area because the neck rest creates a fulcrum and the instrument flops around in the case until the lid is closed. I found some black material similar to the type used in the case, and covered a piece of 1" foam with it, and now the instrument fits snugly without flopping around.

      Overall, this is a nice, solid case that's well-constructed for carrying to the occasional gig, or safely storing the instrument. I wouldn't recommend it for a hard-working touring professional, or for extended travel, but for nearly all other uses, it's well worth it.

      This case would be ideal for a beginner class or other lightweight model banjo. The only neck support that this case offers is at the base of the neck just above the heal. If this case is dropped with a heavier banjo inside of it, the neck could break. The exterior strength, as previously mentioned, isn't all that great. It gives under moderate pressure. So if something we dropped onto the case, anything inside of it is going to feel the hit as well. The hardware seems to be OK. The locks secure the lid down firmly. Again, this case would be good for a lightweight banjo or cheaper model. It would even go well for someone who is going to be using this case for storage. The price is right, but just understand that the quality is affected somewhat when not spending as much money on other brands.
      The features on this banjo case are pretty much standard on all banjo cases.
      The exterior strength and protection is OK. It's nothing fantastic, but will hold up to light/moderate use.
      The price is amazingly low. However, with "value" being more about what product your getting for the money spent, it's hard to rate this in the top of it's class. It's overall strength isn't great. The interior padding is someone hard and not forgiving.

          Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Hardshell Banjo Case:

          I suppose this case could take a bit of a beating, but this is an UNbeatable deal. I got it on sale, but this is still an excellent deal at the normal price. The case is nice, surprisingly solid, well-lined and roomy. [I'm mainly using it for my open back banjo. It's a little too big and deep, I took a standard towel, folded it, put it underneath and around the banjo, perfect fit. But I also use the case for my resonator banjo, so it needs the extra room.] For me, at least, it's the perfect blend of versatile and durable.

          It serves it's purpose. It's a tad bulky for my taste. It has five locks which bugs me. The locks have keys on them which are awesome. The inside is black. It's nice.

            Good sturdy case. Good lining and protection. Great price. A bit heavy but great for storage. Might want a gig padded gig to take it to jams.

              Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Hardshell Banjo Case:

              I was hoping to get a replacement for my open-back banjo (the gig bag it came with was starting to fall apart), and hoped to upgrade to something a bit sturdier as I plan to travel with it soon. It's good protection, but it appears to be designed for a resonator banjo--the neck support is too high for an open back/you will need to add dunnage under the banjo body to raise it to the right level in the case (which will also add weight). It's still usable, and appears well-made enough for light travel--I wouldn't use this case to check my banjo when flying, but if you plan to have it on your person/in your car most of the time, this should do the job. :) Overall good value, but know its limits and your size/instrument requirements.
