Does it really make a difference which case you choose? I'm housing a Kamaka and soon a Pohaku. In Louisiana...can anyone say 'humidity'? Presently, for the Kamaka, I just have an el cheapo case. Are there any serious benefits in investing in a nice case like an Ameritage, besides how cool they look? :p Any other suggestions for a cool case?

Thanks so much!!

Most of the standard plywood cases seem to be about the same quality and offer good protection to your uke.

Ameritage makes some incredible cases but they are as heavy as a tank! And costlier than some of the entry level ukes I've seen too. But if you've got a high powered uke and you're looking to 'bomb-proof' that baby....Ameritage is the way to go. I also like the feature that allows the air to circulate through the entire case, stabilizing the 'climate' for the instrument on the inside.

Aside from that I like the Panther hardcases and Protec is alright as well.

I wrote a few blog entries about various cases a while back:

Hopefully that helps a little bit.
