Hey Guys,

Just wondering what would be the best slim fitting tenor case to buy.
I travel a bit and I just want it not to be too bulky but strong as possible.
Any advice would be fantastic.

Cheers,

Sam

Heyy rollo, since you're in Australia aswell, a bunch of music stores on ebay australia sell tenor hard cases for good prices :)

Firstly, what is your ukulele brand? If it's lanikai, they tend to have a bigger shaped body to normal ukuleles. If in the events that it IS lanikai, I can recommend this hard case since it fits perfectly for mine.

There are cheaper foam hard cases like these which also offer a good amount of protection aswell.

Please note that these aren't the only uke cases available on ebay but just examples. In terms of size, the hard cases seem to be slightly smaller in size than the foam cases.

I would think one of those Crossrock fiberglass case that HMS sells are small, sturdy and light

I am picking up a Kanilea in Hawaii next week. Thank you for all the help. My new uke does come with a case but I was just looking to upgrade it.

I have one of the Crossrock fiberglass cases for my Martin tenor and I really like it. Light, strong and good looking.

That would depend on the dementions of your uke...all ukes vary in sizes, just as cases do..., take measurements always first...don't buy blindly....sheesh :)
