      OVERVIEW

      Lighter than hardshell cases yet just as protective.

      Tired of lugging around that heavy, hardshell banjo case with edges that ding up your shins and other gear? Our Durafoam banjo cases offer the same protection minus the heft and damage potential. The high-density polystyrene foam shell has a soft plush form-fitting interior that coddles your instrument and is covered with tough Cordura. Thoughtful touches include an outside music pocket, interior accessory pocket, quality zipper, and padded shoulder straps.

      FEATURES
      • High-density foam padding
      • Nylon cover with zipper
      • Black plush lining

      I thought for the price I couldn't afford not to give it a try- I was very surprised when I unpacked the case. I had just looked at a similar case at a local store, for almost three times the cost of this case with the same features. Although the outside pocket could have been big enough to hold a book, I don't personally carry a book with me. It holds plenty of other things though, making it a tremendous value for anyone who plays resonator banjo. (an open-back will need supplemental padding.)

      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.

        Comments about Musician's Gear Durafoam Shaped Banjo Case:

        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.

          Good tight fit to my rogue 6 string banjo. Looks to be good protection, straps not real beefy, but seem adequate. Good value for price

            Comments about Musician's Gear Durafoam Shaped Banjo Case:

            Purchased this for a European tour. Case was perfect!! Light and comfortable (enough) to carry but very strong and well padded. Had to gate check a couple times and the instrument (and case) were just fine! Lots of bus bays between location as well and the case performed like a pro.

            We spent insane money on top-of-the-line tour bags for the guitars/basses and this option performed as well for the Goldtone Ganjos.

            I would absolutely recommend this to anyone!!

                This case fit my Recording King 6 string banjo perfectly. Others complain of the zipper but I don't have a problem with it. Every gig bag has a zipper.

                Comments about Musician's Gear Durafoam Shaped Banjo Case:

                This is a great gig bag, especially for its price. Having 2 of these bags, I can see the good and the bad. Resonators fit well but there is quite a bit of wiggle if it is used to house an open back banjo. I use cloth covered styrofoam wedges to make it snug for my Recording King OT25 Madison Old-Time Banjo. Still, it is not the same as having a good fit. It would be nice if 2 models were available: Resonator and Open Back.

                The gig bag fits my Gretsch G9420 Broadkaster Supreme Banjo much better, but the case is wee bit to long for both banjos. Again, a foam wedge solves this problem and, hey, better a wee bit too long than a wee bit too short!

                The zipper is a a bit tedious, as one has to travel about 90% around the case to get it to open. At the same time, hinges may hurt the structural integrity of the case, so even though it is cumbersome, it still may be the best solution in order to keep the gig bag structurally tough and in an attractive price range.

                There is a spacious interior storage compartment as well as 2 zippered external compartments. It also comes with straps to covert it to backpack. Just take out the banjo, add a 2 piece fishing rod, a reel, and the rest of your lures & gear and you will be all set for the hike to your favorite fishing hole.

                Got this case with a Rogue B-30 banjo. Fits well, but not perfect. Bulkier that my other cases ( guitar/mandolin ) of this type.

                I have two DuraFoam Cases. One for my guitar and one for my Luna Banjo.
                Much lighter to carry than the other cases and excellent protection for my instruments. The soft velvet interior cushions my instruments and the solid outer shell protects them from falls and damage.
