    Thanks. I may need to go the construction route. The firefly only has a 8" head, but I guess I could pad one if I found one. I love the look of that Duke 10, but tenor is too big for my hands. I'm actually trying to trade a tenor for a concert Kala.

    Which size FIREFLY do you have? I have the concert sized one and can fit it in a Kala banjo uke concert size case. It is not a perfect fit but it is a hardcase. The slot for the neck needs to be deeper so uke is seated level in case. There is more than enough room for the remohead. The uke also fits with a little room to spare all around the uke in the concert Mono case. This is my preferred case since it is more portable and has an outside pocket.

    Thanks I'll look into it!

    Magic Fluke has a TKL hardshell case (New for 2018) on their website. The write-up says it fits all fleas and fireflies. You may want to check out the pictures of it.

    I still use that case for my Firefly soprano.

    I think the hardshell case is a very recent addition to the Magic Fluke accessories section (NAMM 2018?). Theyve had the gigbag "sleeves" on the site for quite awhile.

    I wondered if this case would really fit the Tenor Firefly, so I asked them. Just heard back that this hardshell case does NOT fit the Tenor Firefly, so they're going to correct the entry on their website.
