    Default Hardshell Concert Ukulele cases. Thoughts and suggestions.

    So I will be in the market for a concert ukulele case soon and I was wondering what peoples experiences are with their cases? What cases do you recommend? What cases should I avoid? Can a good hardshell case be bought for under $100? Lead me to the perfect case folks.

    In that price range I like the Guardian cases- they have a few different pricepoints

    The seven ply case is a very sturdy thing indeed at just under $100, the 5 ply is probably more than adequate for most needs for an instrument as light as a uke.

    Sure, all the Oahu cases are under $100. I picked up an Ohana tweed case locally here for under $100 as well. Unless you are looking for an airline-proof or high end cases like an Ameritage, a concert hard case under $100 should be no problem.

    Oahu is the best traditional hard shell I've seen. It has the raised top that adds to the strength of it and it has a good handle. Uke crazy cases are ok but have flat tops.

    Another vote for the Oahu cases. I don't have extensive experience, but my Oahu case has weathered all manner of nonsense I've put it through (biking to work in snow counts, right?).

    The Oahu cases I have are great but they weigh about four or five times what the uke inside weighs. Personally, I actually prefer those ugly foam and canvas semi-hard cases for just about anything but flying. I just hate lugging a bunch of heavy cases around.

    I'm not entirely convinced that it is possible to polish a turd. However, if one were to accomplish that feat one would still have a turd, and one all the more noticeable for being shiny.

    Does someone sell Oahu cases on the mainland?

    I love Oscar Schmidt cases. I just bought another one.
