View Full Version : What are people using for cases on cigar box ukes?

I've got two now. I keep them in a huge plastic toolbox that I bought, separated by soft foam. I've got room for one more uke in it but it is a monster. It would be OK if I wanted to take both of my CBU's out at once, or even three. I'd like something more uke-specific that would carry one CBU. I anticipate lots of replies to just take three ukes wherever I go.

A bigger cigar box? :)

I've got the square tweed Fremont case with the orange interior that my Tom Guy tenor goes in. I think it's a concert case but it fits the tenor cigarbox perfectly.

Mark, that's a tenor case if it's the one I gave you...

Just gig bags with the same. Scale as regular ukes.

Oops I forgot it is a tenor case. It's a very nice case and fits it nicely.

I've made about ten of them all sizes and gig bags are the best. But I ve made cases from 1/4 ply or baltic birch. but they are alot of work and alittle heavy has been my personal experience. Phil

If you make the box out of a corrugated plastic sheet, you can score one long edge and it can fold over to make a lid, without needing a set of hinges. I make a large box in this style to hold my model sailboat racing sails and it worked great.
