Great Case

I recently bought a five string banjo but it didn't have a case. All the cases I found were sized for specific brands or were just low quality cardboard. A quality instrument needs a case of the same quality and, fortunately, Sweetwater had a really high quality case at a very reasonable price. It was a perfect fit. When I spoke to the customer service person when placing the order, fit was a major concern. He took the trouble to make absolutely certain it would fit and called me back to verify before he would let me order. His efforts to be certain of my complete satisfaction is a reflection of the kind of company he represents. Delivery was prompt and I was absolutely delighted with the case. This is the same level of service I receive every time I purchase from Sweetwater.

Banjo Case

I actually bought this case for my dad. His old one was one of those flimsy soft cases and was coming apart. The new case is a tough hard case with tough hardware and a good secure interior lining. I purchased it online and it arrived within just a few days. He's very pleased with it and it should last a long time. Thank you for a great product and great customer service.

Good value

I bought this case for my son who just bought a banjo. I give it a 4.5 for the price range. It is clearly not designed for heavy airline travel or road work, but will definitely work for suffice for the hobbyist or for players who plan to keep their banjo safe while not playing. However, my son recently tried to board a flight and they made him check his banjo. He was worried, but the case did its job and Bo the case and the banjo made it without issue.

SKB 1SKB-50 case

Very sturdy and nice case. Run through the airport with it 2 days after it got here. The storage for picks ect. seemed a bit small compared to my other case but the case is of very good quality and easy to carry.
