I've been using a pretty cheap case from Shar for about two years. It's nearly falling apart and I don't quite trust the protection it gives - as a student I travel with my violin frequently and I need a reliable case.
I've decided to take the plunge and invest in a higher quality case (my parents have agreed to pay for half of it as my birthday present and I'll fork over the rest). Can anyone recommend a good case under $1000? I'm looking for one that's fairly lightweight and can be carried on my back.
I was looking at the Musafias and they seem like great, durable cases but I'm wondering if there's anything below that. I was also considering a BAM dart shaped case but I don't like the fact that it doesn't have a zip pocket to store music and whatnot.
