Banjo Cases & Gig Bags
No cherished musical instrument should ever be without a case or gig bag, and the banjo is no exception. Thankfully, you'll find an abundance of banjo cases and gig bags to choose from here. In fact, many well-known and trusted brands offer cases and gig bags for your banjos, including Epiphone, Gator, and Deering.
You don't have to be an active touring musician to justify the purchase of a case or gig bag for your banjo. Even if your banjo never travels further than the front porch, a case or gig bag will help maintain its look, sound and operation. Not to mention, banjos are a lot heavier than most other stringed instruments, so even if you're heading to a friend's house for a weekly jam, carrying it in a case or gig bag would be much easier on the hands. Another reason to own a case or gig bag is because of climate conditions. Sudden shifts in temperature will most certainly affect the playability of any musical instrument. However, keeping it sheltered from weather is a simple and practical solution to keeping your banjo in tip top shape.
For a banjo case that's lighter than a hard-shell case yet equally as protective, check out the Musician's Gear Durafoam shaped banjo case. Designed with a high-density polystyrene foam shell that has a soft plush form-fitting interior, this banjo case will provide your instrument with more than enough security. Another big-seller in this catalog is the Gator GL-BANJO XL Fit-All banjo case. Rugged yet lightweight, the interior of this case is constructed from dense EPS foam, while the exterior is covered in 600-denier ballistic material, and the carrying handle is made out of parachute webbing.
The banjo is such a fun and fulfilling experience, it should always be stored away safely in a well-crafted case or gig bag when it's not being used. Doing so will ensure that your banjo continues to bring you countless years of musical enjoyment.
