    Not durable

    My daughter has had this case for 5 months, and it is showing a good bit of wear. The case began to lose external pieces almost immediately: two of the plastic pegs the case rests on when in n upright position and one of the magnetic fasteners. Now the exterior fabric is showing wear and tear. Her previous case, which came with a rental violin, held up for years.

The same pads are found for neck and scroll. So overall it is great case for the price. Actually I thought it's no brainer for $129! On the other hand, it seems that the lid of theo outer compartment touches the string tube when the case is closed, not a big problem though. Also I have to agree the reviewer before that craftsmanship and durability of this case sure have rooms ofimprovment. I also wish Shar provides more options on colors, a working hygrometer and a less childlish/lame logo (forgive me). But I ... (See Full Review)
