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.

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

This case seems pretty good for the price. It seems very sturdy and well built. However, it is a little difficult to close and fits very tightly against my son's mandolin. All things considered, it seems like a good deal.

      I got this as a case to use with any of several different A style Mandolins when I take them places where I want more than a gig bag for protection. On sale it was a great deal. It fits all my A style Arch tops.

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

      love the case but my ovation mandolin won't quite fit in it. I'm sure most mandolins fit nicely. I have bought lots of gear from musicians friend over the last twenty years , and this is one of my few disappointments. i'll live.

          I bought this case for my Kentucky KM-150. It fits my mandolin very well. I am very happy with this case. I also have the Musicians Gear strat case. These are a great value-even better when they are on sale!

                      The quality and cost of this case can't be beat for everyday use and storage of the instrument. If one needs a case for instrument protection from airline luggage handling abuse, then perhaps an arch type case would be in order. Myself, I would carry this case onboard with me to avoid any possible luggage handling damage. Other than that, this case is just great for everyday use. I really like mine!
