Hey everyone, do you have any recommendations for my Kala Dolphin?
I don't like the the soft case that came with my Kala, because I want a more secure option when I take my Ukulele places. My budget is around $40 USD.
Thanks for your help.
Regards,

Dixie,

Here's one option for a hard case. Good price, and the shipping is free. Check out the measurements in the Specifications section to make sure your uke will fit properly.

Keep in mind that a hard case will be significantly heavier than the one you currently have. A somewhat lighter, but still very protective, option would be a hard foam case. They are easily available; you should have no trouble finding one within your budget.

Best of luck!

Tons of reasonably priced ones on Amazon. Got this one in concert size and it's been fine hauling around on the back of my moped.

I'll have a look at that one, as well!

I've come to like this type of case for a less than top-of-the-line uke. They're hard, but they're not expensive. I keep my Waterman in the little black that came with it. It's hanging up in my closet.

Ebay has a lot of options. This case would provide all the protection a Dolphin would need. I've got one and it works great.

I bought a couple of those cases - for me and a friend - and they're amazing for the price. What I find funny about looking up cases is that they give the exterior dimensions. Who cares? All I care about is the room inside. I might be able to use 24.5", but not 24". Giving just external dimensions doesn't help very much.

I agree, the case is pretty amazing for the price. I was surprised at how nice it was. The case does run a bit small so the dimensions are important and I don't know why they don't list the interior dimensions. I bought mine for my Kala which I really had to shoe-horn to get it to fit. Fortunately, my Ohana fit in there like a glove so it became the Ohana's home and the Kala went into a Musician's friend case.
