    Default Hard Case for a Fluke

    Has anyone found a good hard case that will hold a Fluke concert? I have it in a gig bag, but I prefer more protection.

    I was unable to post while quoting your post because the site thinks your link is spam.

    Thats a zippered case for $95. I'll keep looking. I use camelcamelcamel on Amazon to find low prices, and uke cases go up and down like a yoyo.

    With 50 ukes have you tried to see if any of your cases would work? While not a Fluke I have a Fred Shields paddle that fits in a concert case. Not saying a Fluke will.

    I thought one of the benefits touted for the fluke was that it was difficult to damage? Why the extra protection?

    I was about to say the same thing. I would think a mandolin case would work.

    I have a couple students with the Fluke and they carry them around campus bare and they seem none the worse for the wear. One just told me she accidentally closed her car door on it and nuttin' happened...

    The body is a composite, but the top is laminate wood (or solid koa), and it has the bridge and the strings sticking up. I'm just not comfortable with gig bags.

    That's the problem - 50 or more cases! : )

    I tried it in some of them, but they're either too large or too small. I thought someone might have an immediate answer. A mandolin case is perfect for banjo ukes, but it's too large for the Fluke. I'll try some more cases today.

    Car door - funny! Maybe I don't need a case.
