looking for a good stylish case for under $300

December 17, 2005 at 08:58 PM · Hello, I'm in the market for a new case for my violin. It's a 4/4 violin and a Coda bow. I'd like maximum protection and still stylish for under $300. One thing that concerns me though, is the bow holder. Most cases I've seen have the holder tab that is directly over the top of the violin. Could these tabs every scratch or dent the violin? Maybe if kicked or dropped?

In any case, I'd love to hear what your favorite case is, and of course hoping it's within my budget.
