Can't beat it for the price

I happen to be one of those Grandparents; who's Grandkids just seem to love Grandpaw's musical instruments,so no matter how expensive or cheap they may be..instruments need protection!! I purchased this case for my Rogue "A" style Mandolin (which I also purchased at Musiciansfriend.com). I was amazed at how well it fitted to my Mandolin. The inside padding is much thicker and softer than I imagined from the pictures. The lid fits nice and snug against the bridge, and the material is soft enough to form itself to the shape of the top without too much pressure. This case even has a keyed lock on the center latch(that helps keep the kids out of it when you're not looking).
I would NOT recommend this case for the "F" style mandolin..the body would be a little too wide at the top. And of course if you have an expensive Mandolin ,like a Washburn or Gibson, You're gonna want to get a case specially made for that Brand Name instrument,(the big boys always have cases specially built to fit their instruments)
If you're a beginner or slightly experienced player..remember..You always look more professional when you show up with your instruments in a nice looking case...people wonder what ya got in there and can't wait till you open up the case.

When I received this case, it was in an oversized box. It gave the impression of being much bigger. I was a bit shocked at its small size. When I went to place my "A"-style mandolin inside of the case, the case was too small for my Rouge (inexpensive but lovingly handled all the same.) I gently pressed the case and the mandolin finally fit...problem is, the top won't close properly. The hardware is cheap, and actually feels as if it will come off the sides of the case with very little assistance. The edging around the top,stiched to the top, is split, with an opening right under the hinge area supposed to secure the body of the mandolin.

To top it all off, there are six (6) stamped, half-moon shapes on the top of the case. Three (3) up near the nut and three (3) more down near the body where the locking mechanism is installed.

I have a great gig bag for the mandolin. When I saw this one on sale, I thought, "Great chance to add a little more protection." I was wrong. Sending it back is cost prohibative.

Thing is, I discovered Musician's Friend December last. I have ordered a passle of things from them...mainly sale items, or items that come with some other little extra tidbit. A majority of the time, and I am talking almost always, I get great deals and outstanding equipment for my ministry. This is really the first time when I have been this disappointed with a product. It is the first time I uncatagorically do not recommend a piece of equipment. Well...'nuff said.

Not deep enough

Comments about Musician's Gear Hardshell A-Style Mandolin Case:

My cheap Rogue A-style mandolin fits real tight, which is OK, but the depth is too shallow. When the lid is closed, it put pressure on the mandolin's bridge. I hope this doesn't cause the mandolin body to crack. I'm willing to chance it and see what happens.

        Comments about Musician's Gear Hardshell A-Style Mandolin Case:

        Our Washburn M1S "A" style mandolin was a little too thick for the case depth. The case lid put pressure on the instrument's bridge. This might improve over time when the case padding takes the instrument's shape, but it is not a great situation.

        We purchased the same brand case for a ukulele and it is fine. It provides reasonable protection with no quality or fit issues. The mandolin case had many of the issues noted by other reviewers. The latches were misaligned, with the plating peeling off. The lid was warped and the outside vinyl covering was misapplied. Allowing for the low price, the quality was still poor.

        Musician's Friend was great about exchanging it for the Washburn case specific to our instrument. Yes, we had to pay about twice the price, but the fit should be exact with fewer manufacturing issues.

          This case is well padded and sturdy - not in a flight case way, but it will provide good protection for your instrument in the home and in your car on your way to playing gigs. It fit both my Kentucky KM150 and Rogue RM-111 like a glove. Very pleased with my purchase.

              Comments about Musician's Gear Hardshell A-Style Mandolin Case:

              I bought the mandolin case for a clients cheapo A-style mandolin.
              Pro-It arrived much faster than I had expected. Come to think of it.. the shipping was free. Anyway, the case is nice with the hard-shell outside and the soft cushion inside. The mandolin fit perfect with no slop. The latches lined up well and stayed latched (no loose latches). I thought the price was reasonable at roughly 40.
              Con- The top of the bridge was a bit higher than the top of the open case which caused the top of the case to rest on the bridge in a closed position.
              Overall- This is a good case for a starter instrument. I gave a "Good" rating for the price and free shipping.
