    Default Oahu Hardshell Case from HMS - Question

    I just ordered a new Pono AB-6 from HMS. It comes with this case:

    https://www.theukulelesite.com/acces...lele-case.html

    I don't see where it says in the description whether or not it comes with a shoulder strap (though the pictures show it has two strap attachment points).

    I read some of the reviews....one reviewer said it DID come with a shoulder strap, and one reviewer said it did NOT. Hence my question here to clarify.

    FOR ANYONE WHO HAS GOTTEN THIS CASE RECENTLY FROM HMS, COULD YOU TELL ME WHETHER OR NOT IT COMES WITH A SHOULDER STRAP?

    Thank you.

    Just thought someone could give me a quick response, but I guess not.

    I keep my Sceptre in an Ohau case I got from HMS around 2010; it does not have strap attachment points.

    The cases for different size instruments may be different, and may even come from different manufacturers, regardless of the name on the case.

    Your best bet, Susie, is to call HMS as kerneltime stated.

    With or without strap, I'd be happy with an Oahu case, they are among the best, IMO, with cool vintage styling, and the built-in rings for the strap. No strap wou.d not worry me, I probably have 3-4 carrying straps that came with various suitcases, usually tucked in one of the pockets.

    I think the point is less that it didn't come with a strap, than that it didn't come with strap attachment points. My Oa'hu tenor case from approximately 2010 does not have the attachment points. That was why I suggested that Susie call HMS, because your mileage may vary.
