I've done my due diligence in searching previous threads and just spent the last 40 minutes searching on line. Does anyone know of a company that manufactures a case for a pineapple shaped tenor? Or a case that would keep one reasonably safe? Thank you for your help.

I would suggest the Steady cases from Elderly.

Thanks for the reccomendation! I have a similar issue as gyosh and this case looks like it would fit the bill.

You can check out the Fremont cases if you want something fully hardshell. It might smell a bit like glue, but eventually the odor goes away and you have pretty dependable protection for your uke. It would be heavier than the Steady case.

I like the Steady. Chap, have you tried one for a pineapple?

Freemont cases are out from Kiwaya, Steady cases will work and also Ko'olau.

Very cool! Thank you, the Kiwaya case is exactly what I'm looking for in a case.

Yep! I keep my David Gill pineapple in one. It is a lot sturdier than any other "soft" case I've seen, and has great padding and a really good handle. It's worth it!

Have you flown with the Steady case? I might get both in case I fly with two pineapple tenors. It could happen :) I have a Reunion Blues Continental for my Kamaka that I absolutely love. Much better than the smelly hard case it came with..
