    I didn't get as nice a deal as Jerry did but my case came to $32 and change with tax delivered. It came in the mail yesterday and all is well with the interior measurements. These really are nice cases.

    I measured the depth of the body cavity and it came to 3" deep to the upper edge of the bottom section. (I think the lid is an additional 3/4") If the Bonanza Homestead is 1.5" deep I may need 1.5" of foam rubber padding to make it sit flat/even. I'm still waiting on the uke so I'll have to wait and see. If the Homestead fits in one of those python patterned Chinese/Ebay cases I will move one of my Ohanas into this new case and put the Homestead in the python case because it is not as deep and I will need less padding.
    Money can't buy happiness but it can buy a uke which is basically the same thing.

    Ukes are a lot like potato chips. It's hard to stop with just one!

    Other case sizes are now on sale with the soprano at $34.99 and baritone at $39.99. Might get a baritone.

    I ordered a concert for my wife’s Kala concert and it barely fits in, quite the opposite of a bit too big! We have to use a bit of pressure to get it in.

    I experienced the same thing with my Kala. Over time the padding will compress so it will still be a snug fit but the uke will slide in and out easier.

    Someone who purchased one of the concert cases here should give you the measurements, in the case it might work. The tenor case I received definitely has extra inches at the headstock end...

    Oops. Sorry!
    I have a Kala KA-ASOV-C that is also substantially larger than many other ukes.

    I wonder if the Kala sopranos run big too: the Kala plastic molded soprano case I purchased off the Kala website is huge for most of my ukes!

    I really like these cases! I own the concert and sop and fit my ukes like a glove! Great quality for the price and a steal when they are on sale!
    Do they sell medication to help fight UAS?
