      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.

          Purchased to use for carry-on air travel in place of gig bag. Great functionality for that use.

              I build banjolas and have rare this case the best I have found, easy to carry especially on your back, lightweight. The zippers are a pain, you have to unzip/zip all the way around but something has to give. Have bought six of them to date and will buy some more, excellent case for the money.

                Comments about Musician's Gear Durafoam Shaped Banjo Case:

                Great price on a great case. Probably better protection for my banjo than some hard-shells. It doesn't fit under my bed though, as the case is extra thick. This probably makes it less friendly for taking on airplanes too, but I haven't tried.
                The zipper is kind of long. You have to unzip both zippers all the way to the backside to get the case to open, but I guess that's a minor point.

                Was looking for case to fit my 6 string banjo and this case fills all my needs. Banjo fits snug in the case and 6 string neck is cradled well.

                    I own a half dozen of these for both my banjos and banjolas. Will take a beating and keep on ticking. My only complaint is the 360 degree zipper. I like the storage pockets in side and out and the shoulder straps make it possible to carry several at a time.

                      I use this case exclusively with the banjolas I build, light, excellent protection and I really like the idea of being able to carry three at a time, one on my back and one in each hand.

                        Works great for the banjola's I build. I need to move the storage compartment forward to accomodate the longer banjola body and the construction allows me to easily do this. Will buy many more, thanks for the product selection and great service.

                          Needed a lighter case then the hardshell that came with my Gibson Mastertone....feared this would be a glorified gigbag, but was surprised by how sturdy and rigid it is despite it's light weight. Only criticism is the thin backpack straps and D rings (which I'll probably upgrade on my own). A great value for the money.
