Big Case?

Postby Gary Nava » Thu Jul 05, 2012 4:19 pm

Hi there,
Does anyone know of a shaped case that will take a mandolin larger than A or F styles, other than Hiscox or Carlton.
Cheers Gary

I don't know of anything specific, but I'd suggest you look at cases designed for mandolas.

But you probably already thought of that.

My Tobin mandolin (big body and a long headstock) came in a Calton case - I think Andy told me it was really a mandola case. It's a perfect fit.
