Thread: Kanile’a carrying case

  1. #1

    Default Kanile’a carrying case

    Any thoughts/reviews on the Kanile’a premium carrying case? I just picked up a Kanile’a tenor that came with a ukecrazy case. I’d like to get something with a better fit. I really like the looks of the Kanile’a hard case but can’t find it for sale. On the Kanile’a website they offer the carrying case.

    Thanks

    To be honest, with an instrument the value of a Kanile'a I don't think I would personally put mine in anything other than a fully hard case. That's not to say this is shoddy - it looks very nice, but semi hard cases are never as strong.

    Just my opinion of course!

    Nice case -Kanilea one, I travel lots, this case would do in any situation unless you are playing football with it and yes maybe survive that also. Have several Kanilea, I know the cost, just get this case, also have the uke insured full value on homeowner rider on insurance. Hope this helps. Beautiful bag-expensive , I carry mine in similar bag-soft.

    Baz I agree but can’t find the Kanile’a hardcase anywhere.

    Perep - Just so I am clear you recommend the carrying case in the link?

    I am looking for the case included in this listing.

    The case in that second listing is a piece of junk. Mine fell apart literally not long after I got it. It offers very little protection. I don't think they even offer them anymore. Buy a proper solid case.

    Depends how much you want to spend. There are plenty of hard shell wooden or ABS options out there but you really do get what you pay for.

    I store my nice ukuleles in wood or ABS plastic hard cases. These "carrying cases" are much lighter weight than the old wood cases and I can understand that some people have trouble with the weight and would want to use a lighter weight case to transport your ukulele to local gigs or classes.
