For the student just starting out, it certainly makes sense to be prudent about how much to spend on a case. But if a case falls apart quickly, or doesn't work well, any money spent will be money lost. With Toshira cases, there are no worries! Designed by SHAR's team of players and teachers, Toshira cases are the best value in cases. Designed to work well for every student's needs, and with attention to details that make for easy carrying, straps for back-packing, and enough storage for music and accessories. All Toshira cases have a suspension feature, which greatly protects the instrument from trauma, a feature not found on most beginner cases sold on the web.

Problems with this case. The lock on the case is difficult to open if you have arthritis in your hands. I would never lock the case because it only had one tiny and flimsy key to it and if you lost that key??? Also, I have a standard 4/4 size violin but it would not lie flat in the case. The center support holds the neck up high enough and at an angle so that the violin isn't flat and supported. The storage case is very small and since I have two types of rosin, a practice mute and special music earplugs, there wasn't room for everything. Also because of the angle of the top storage pocket, it held very little music and no notebooks. I had to pay for the return postage and it cost $23.10 because of the dimensions of the box.

Best case for the price. A plywood shell case (not just a foam thing with fabric glued on) for great protection. Does what you need a case to do for no money. The only thing I sometimes like that it doesn't have is room for 4 bows. For that, you need an oblong case. Unless you can and want to spend around a thousand for a premium leather case to sit on your piano, these are about as good as most anything else. Put your money into your instruments instead.

I'll be honest--this is a cheap case. It is very light weight and it will protect your instrument. It is convenient to carry (it has two backpack straps). There are velcro straps to secure the instrument's by the neck and another to secure a shoulder rest. Room for two bows, and two plastic clamps to secure the bows. A zippered cloth outer bag protects the interior case from the weather. The workmanship is poor--the top of my case doesn't exactly close evenly on the bottom. The inside of it reeks of some chemical that they probably sprayed it with to kill bugs in whatever country it was made in . I had to let mine air out for a day. In the box also comes some extra metal feet, some extra screws and an extra bow clamp. I opted to install the third bow clamp so my bow would be extra secure. The case is made of soft plywood and can easily be drilled and screwed into. The outer cloth protective bag is actually secured to the plywood case shell with screws. One reviewer complained that there are no D rings for a shoulder strap--he could have easily added some with little effort. Doing so would only improve the case and it is an option I am considering adding myself. I'm handy with tools and would do that anyway. Am I happy? Sort of. It's a better case than I used to have. It will handle trips via public transit and easily survive a rain or snow storm. I play gigs in bars, so it will no doubt get a beer soak test. (I hope it passes!) After buying it I know realize why cases like BAM cost ten times what this one does. Short answer-- this is a cheap case.

100% satisfied. My daughters used this case size 1/10, 1/8, 1/4 because my friend recommended. No damage ever and very convenient for little kids. If you want to keep your hands free and doesn't like accident, go this model.

I purchased this as my first violin case, and it is an excellent case! I would definitely recommend this case to anyone. A Bonmusica shoulder rest OR a Kun collapsible shoulder rest fit inside the case - using the velco strap. (i've tried both) My Shar Metro-Tuner, rosin, cloth, and mute all fit inside the storage compartment in the case, with a little room to spare. Personal opinion: when I purchased this case, I was pleased to find it was not quite as bright as the picture shows.

This is a wonderful case with high quality interior, zippers, hardware. The backpack straps are very convenient - not many cases in this price/quality range have them. I shopped around a bit, decided to go with this case, and am 100% satisfied. I'm a traveling instrumental teacher and this case is perfect to carry my demo violin. This is actually the first review I've ever written for something I've bought online - I always read others' reviews and felt this case deserved a 5 star rating. Also, like the viola case model, this violin case has a hdyrometer and string tube (not pictured).
