Lately, I have been visiting my friend's cottage, and often it involves a lot of drinking, and we frequently face rain storm.
At my first visit, I brought my violin in its case, it surprisingly survived having an intoxicated 230lb(me) person falling on it, and survived being dropped off of a bed a few times.
I was actually afraid of opening the case to inspect the instrument on the day we were leaving, but everything is fine, including the case. Although, I stopped bringing the good violin, and started bringing my electric violin and amp up at the cottage for safety since then.
This no-name brand case costed me $150 Cdn about 3 years ago, and it is serving me apparently quite well.
However, it's a oblong case which is not most convenient to travel with. I have been toying with an idea of upgrading the case for the past little while. Have anyone had the unfortunate opportunity to test physical integrity of their shaped case, and recommendations?
