Interior colors not as depicted.

The interior of the case that I received is not the Red Claret shown in the website photo. Instead, the case I received has a Camel interior with Red-Violet accents. Unfortunately, after making a couple inquiries, I have not received any explanation for the inverse color scheme.

Pretty Good Case

The strap broke within one month. I had to tie it back to keep it together, but it still falls off occasionally. That's my biggest problem. But on the plus side, it's very compact and light. You can't put much things inside, other than small object (rosins, shoulder rest, etc.) though.

Two years old and still holding up well!

I bought this case as it was the only one Shar reps said would fit my slightly oversized Maggini copy fiddle. It is a snug fit lengthwise but fits and feels very secure in place. All hardware has held up well. It has endured the weekly 1/2 mile winter snowshoe hike to our garage at the end of the county road here in the UP of Michigan for a couple of years.
The only change I've made was to remove the string tube and its holders because the holders were snagging the hair on my good bow. I probably could have put my backup bow in the top position but felt safer taking out the offending hardware.
Overall this has been a great case for me.

Simply Gorgeous

I was looking for a lightweight case, but everything I found was either very low quality or too bulky.
Then, I found this case. Wow! The answer to my prayers! It's lightweight, and even though it's a shaped case (which reminds me of my youth), it has a beautiful, classy design. I adore the brass touches, and the interior is beautiful. It even has quilted padding along the bottom, which makes me feel a lot more comfortable about hauling my violin on the subway.

Some Designing Comments

Have had this case for 1 week so far.
Tacky-looking big gold-tinted outside hardware (D-rings, etc.). Outside canvas cover seems thin and junky. Inside compartment is tiny! It's about 2" x 3", and it could have been designed to extend twice as far up, all the way up to where the scroll of the violin ends. See the picture. (So there's no place to store extra string envelopes or metronome, besides loose in the pegbox part of the case. It's hard to fit shoulder rest in the velcro shoulder rest strap next to the violin.
Good Backpack straps, and good shape of case.
