Raincoat for violin case
High quality material and great item for the price. Only complaint is that it doesn't have a zipper and you have to remove it entirely every time then put it back on.
I'm one of those people who are maybe a tad too overprotective of their instrument. Full suspension case, double locking it up, humidifier, buckling it up safer than I would a child: you name it, I've done it to protect my violin. Lately, the weather around my place has been a dripping soggy mess. It would be nice, actually, if I lived a hermit's life, but unfortunately people don't pay for me to play in the comfort of my own room. Thus comes the string musician's rain dance that we all know, hunched figures running like the devil is coming after us with a new sonata idea involving double stops while clutching a precious instrument covered in shawls, jackets, corner store plastic bags, and whatever random junk we think can protect our babies. And they get wet anyway. So, I saw this magnificent invention, a raincoat meant for instrument cases, and just could not resist. Five bucks for peace of mind and keeping my body in one piece while running blind through a downpour in a church parking lot? Deal. Cons: Takes forever to put on and off. Chances of looking like a 10 year old cellist who is trying to fit a 3/4 cello into a 1/2 case: high. Case handle may be a tad too large to fit through the hole. Looks baggy, yet somehow a tight fit? If you don't have the SHAR logo facing outwards, you will definitely look like a suspicious character. If you do, now you become a suspicious character who wasn't good enough at performing illegal activities and requires a sponsor to continue to perform their work
This "Raincoat" would be much better if it had a zipper. I bought it to use more as a dust cover to keep my violin case clean. Yes. It says "Raincoat," but that doesn't mean it can't be used as a dust cover as well. A zipper would allow easy access to the case instead of having to pull this Raincoat completely off. It's also a tight fit for the Eagle Hill-Style Violin Case I bought from Shar, so just getting it off is not the easiest. This Raincoat needs a 52-inch zipper for a single zipper, which is what I'm going to buy and add to this Raincoat. Otherwise, the material is quality, the stitching appears to be quality, and overall, the case is worth the price. Oh, Yeah. Did I mention it needs a zipper. ?? No zipper means it's not a perfect Raincoat, so I deducted one star. I should deduct two stars, because no zipper makes this Raincoat a PIA.
Very impressed with this product!
First of all, shipping was amazing! My order came THE NEXT DAY. When I ordered it I did not expect such a heavy duty cover. It is made from a heavy waterproof canvas. Very high quality. It fits my case with room to spare, but not baggy. I'm very happy with it!
I bought this along with a violin case. I was very impressed. It is made out of heavy material and fairly easy to use. I live in Ohio and the weather is very unpredictable. I play in a group and in addition I take private lessons (advanced student) so I am always on the go. I have been caught in several rainstorms. Not a lot of fun! I can't believe this is only five bucks. Well worth the price. Quick delivery. Another wonderful SHAR product!
My Shar rain cover came today- Nicer than I expected and for the money it's a winner ! Thinking it will be sold out quick--
Can't believe it's so inexpensive!
This rain cover's price suggests that it is cheap, but it's NOT! It's made of thick material that keeps the rain out and protects my son's violin as he makes the 1/4+ mile walk home from the bus stop on rainy days. He has a 3/4 size violin, and this cover still works well.
Really nice and heavy material for the price. Even if it was double the price it would still be a nice material for the price. I'm actually not sure how it's priced so low.
Really wonderful case protector
I have an older leather covered Jaeger violin case- the original cloth cover is no longer usable and I needed to find some protection for my case when going to rehearsals, concerts, etc.. The reviews were spectacular and the price is very reasonable for this item so I thought I would try it. This case protector is made from a very high quality, substantial material. You have to slide the violin case into the bottom corner section of the cover - there are no seams on the top side, and rain or snow cannot seep through. It would be nice with a zipper, but I think that would probably allow the elements in, unless there was a flap over the zipper. Overall, I am extremely happy with this purchase and my case will be well protected.
