      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.

        My Fender Rustler has a sound board and overall thickness required me to remove the extra pad over the banjo head. This was easily done with an exacto knife and double sided carpet tape. this kept the case lid from pushing down on the banjo drum head
        and distorting the set up tension. (something that should be checked with any case) Overall a great case for the price.

              Great hard shell case - great price - great padding inside with spacious accessory compartment.

              I use this brand for my guitar cases as well so I was not scared to try the same brand with my new banjo. Couldn't be happier with my purchase!

                I already own this case for my 5 string banjo and wanted to have the same quality for my new 6 string banjo.....it works great for it. I just had to adjust the neck cradle by lowering it and it fit perfectly!

                  Cases in general are way over priced which makes this case a really good buy. It is reasonably sturdy and nicely lined with fake fur. More than
                  adequate protection.

                    The cases arrived in super fast time. Shipping was GREAT! The cases are your basic economy type. I use them for storing the banjos I am not currently using. The biggest drawback I would take issue with, is the fact that there is no neck support in the area near the headstock. A VERY easy way to get the instrument broken in the event of a drop. Not recommended for transport of the instrument.
