Thoughtful touches include an outside music pocket, interior accessory pocket, quality zipper, and padded shoulder straps.

This is a nylon case made to fit a resonator type banjo. My banjo is an Epiphone MB-200 and this case is a perfect fit for it. It you have an open back banjo you will have to fill the areas with something to keep it from flopping around. It is not a hard sided case. It is a nylon sided case that will hold it's shape due to some kind of hard material (maybe cardboard?) and a good amount of foam padding that protects the banjo. Nice soft furry material is what touches the instrument. The case has one compartment inside large enough to store an extra set of strings, picks, tools, etc. The outside has another pouch storage area good to store slightly larger items such as cables and banjo strap (btw... I keep the my banjo strap on all the time and mine will fold neatly in the case with it still on). Nylon zippers and the handles seem sturdy enough for me. So this type of case is a good alternative to the typical hard sided case that costs more and it affords much better protection than a "bag" style case. I like it.

For an open back I would not suggest this banjo case. I put mine in it and it flopped around left to right and sat way too lowat the pot. I am sure for a resonator banjo it would be great. I am making some extra padding to keep using it as the lightness and protection is great.

        This case was recommended to me by MF when I purchased a Deering Special Open Back Banjo. It is for a resonator Banjo. This case is made by Guardian and they have a similar model for open back banjos. I wish MF had told me that this case is not a good fit for the banjo I purchased. I wish MF carried or would order the similar case that fits an open back banjo.
        Otherwise, it is an excellent case.

        Zipper sticks in 2 places, heavier than expected from a "foam" case. Workmanship is faulty. I will probably send it back for a replacement.

            Main use is for transporting by car.
            With this case I don't have to worry about damage.
            When at home I just leave the banjo on the stand.

                Comments about Musician's Gear Durafoam Shaped Banjo Case:

                My son was given a banjo in a disintegrating cardboard case, I ordered this to get him something better. I've purchased a similar canvas-over-rigid-foam case for my Yamaha mandolin. In my opinion this kind of case is a better bet than a hardshell case: not only lighter, but can take a lot of punishment. Now that I think of it, many of the hardshell cases on my guitars and violins have cracks or damage (but protected the instruments). Certainly much better protection than a "gig bag" at a very reasonable price.

                Good case, but depth of case is closer to guitar hard case. Width at neck is also similar to guitar hard case. Bottom line, it's good quality, light, durable case, but it is larger than you would expect

                        The case I received is a "Guardian" case, although the website did not identify it as such. I like the case for travel use, but I had to stuff it with extra material to keep my open back banjo snug when out and around. The case offers very good protection for the instrument but the main virtue of the thing is that it is light in weight.
