    Very Nice

    My wife's been carrying around a 30 year old American violin case. It was kind of tattered but getting the job done until the zipper quit working recently. Since the price on these cases has ome down over the years, we were finally able to replace it with the Manhattan. WOW! What a nice look, fit and finish. The side case holds all her music easily. Her custom built violin and accessories all fit perfectly with room to spare. Thanks for such a nice product at a reasonable price. Kudos to Sharmusic for the reasonable pricing, quick shipping, tracking info, and excellent service. This is a VERY NICE case. ... (See Full Review)

    Fantastic Protection! Durability - not so much

    I bought the Manhattan case 4-5 years ago and I still use it to this day. It's well padded/protected and the wood shells are fantastic. But the fact that it's "protecting" my violin extremely ell even if the case itself deteriorating surprises me. I travel once in a while and take it to school everyday and the thing is breaking apart inside out (pockets, lock, the part that connects the two shell, etc). So ultimately I am looking for a new case but I have thoroughly enjoyed it's existence till now. Oh btw, this case is definitely NOT a lightweight case especially once you put music, rosin, shoulder-rest, etc. I'm pretty bulked up but it's really tiresome to lug it around everywhere. And btw, this is American case company is "partnered" with shar so they make this case seem better than it is. So the accurate 5-star ratings should be... Protection - 5 Durability - 3 Craftmanship - 4. which is still pretty good. ... (See Full Review)
