Heritage® Go! Viola Case Black Exterior with Red Interior 15-155
REVIEWED BY: KIERSTEN SMITH
reviewed on: 12/20/2014
I just got this case today and it will be going back. I have had the Heritage Go! case for my violin for about 12 years and I love it. Even with less than stellar reviews on this one, I thought I would still like it since my violin case has been so good. It looks like in the last 12 years, they have started cutting corners. There is no string tube, as advertised. The workmanship is just very meager. The velcro closure that holds the shoulder rest is already peeling up and I haven't even used it. It's also on the large side and I'm not sure if I would trust it to really protect my instrument. I measured the length inside, the same area that I measure my 15.5 inch viola. This case is supposedly for a 15-15.5 inch viola, however, the space measures 16.5. I guess it's possible I was sent the wrong size, but there is no indication anywhere on the case what size it is. Don't waste your time and money on this case. Invest a little more and buy one that is better made and will hold up longer.
Heritage® Challenger Deluxe Viola Case Black Exterior with Blue Interior
REVIEWED BY: Teacher, KIERSTEN SMITH

Way too big
I had high hopes for this case. It looks good and solid, however, it is way too big. It's advertised to fit violas 15-16.5 inches. I have a 15.5 inch viola and there is no way that this case would even come close to fitting my instrument. It's both way too long and way too wide. I have to send it back. I can imagine it maybe fitting a 17 inch viola, but I wouldn't buy it for smaller instrument.
Heritage® Ultra Lite Violin Case
REVIEWED BY: BONNIE TEMPLIN
reviewed on: 12/20/2014
Even after reading a lot of reviews about some violins not fitting, I decided to give it a try hoping mine would fit. When it arrived I anxiously opened it up to check the fit. NOPE DOES NOT FIT! Additionally, overall it appeared cheaply made. For one instance, the zippers are chintzy. They barely make it around the corners of the case and that was the first and only time I used them. I can't imagine how long they would last even under moderate use. If I saw this case in a store, even though it's so light weight, I would not buy it. To add insult to injury, I had to pay over $25 for return shipping.
American Case Company® Manhattan Compact Adjustable Viola Case
REVIEWED BY: Teacher, CHRISTINE BROWN
reviewed on: 12/06/2014
Beautiful viola case!
This case is beautiful and the quality is excellent. I don't thinks I'll need to ever get another case. The only thing I see on it that will wear out with time are the feet on the case, they'll end up scratched but I don't think they'll fall off. I like the mesh in the music pocket and that it fits my 14.5" viola. I'll just put extra foam to make up for the extra room on the sides because of my viola being so small. This case is easy to carry around and comfortable. It is also easy to adjust to different viola sizes.
Embassy Ambassador Violin Case
REVIEWED BY: THURSTON MATTHEWS

Beautiful and Luxurious
I got this on the website sale, so the price was very reasonable. Since I didn't get to see it in person I was a little nervous. I was pleasantly surprised however when it arrived. This is a very luxurious and solidly built case! I got the black paisley interior with the brushed silver hinges and green exterior. It was so beautiful I wanted to keep it for myself! When my daughter saw what had arrived she demanded to take possession exclaiming "dad, you hardly ever play YOUR violin". I gave in and handed it over.
Thermoplastic Shaped Violin Case
REVIEWED BY: Teacher, JEFFREY OHMART
reviewed on: 10/16/2014
The Absolute Worst
If I could give 0 stars, I would. First thing: Glasser bows don't fit in these cases. Second thing: The bow holders are too close to where the frog is supposed to go- If you HAVE managed to wedge your bow into this case, the bow holder isn't able to turn to secure the bow. If you DO manage to turn the bow holder, it permanently warps the bow due to the downward force from the bow holder being in the wrong spot. Since the bow holder is in the wrong spot, the force of the bow trying to unwarp itself pulls the bow holders out of the Styrofoam rendering the case unusuable within 2 years. Don't waste your money on garbage. Buy a real case.
Mobile Cello Case Black 4/4 Size
REVIEWED BY: Student, BARBARA DIANNIBELLA
reviewed on: 10/15/2014
Nice case for the money
I purchased this case a few weeks ago and it is suitable for my needs. It arrived very well-packaged (it took me about 20 minutes to get it out of the boxes!). Overall, it is a little less sturdy than I was hoping for but about what I expected for the price. The latches and wheels work smoothly, my cello fits in it perfectly, and the case will protect the cello while it is sitting at home which is mostly what I wanted it for, and it should be fine for taking to lessons. I picked the gray color and it was much lighter in color than I was expecting; if I had to do it again, I'd get the black. But not worth sending it back for.
