Where to buy second hand BAM violin case?

December 16, 2020, 6:38 PM · Hi!
I don't know if this is allowed to be posted here, but I'm looking to buy a secondhand BAM violin case - ideally the white contoured case (SUP2002XLWS), but I'm open to other contoured BAM models too. Unfortunately I'm still a uni student so I don't have the funds to be spending on a new case, so if anyone here happens to be selling secondhand or know any websites I could use to find a seller please let me know! I'm located in London, UK.
Thank you!

I use to buy everything from Thomann, they give you free shipping after £99. If you buy second hand you will get the usual risks of buying something used and you will probably pay shipping.

It's fine of course if it's a gift from a friend or colleague and they just got a new case and asked if you wanted their old one, but I wouldn't BUY a used one. Whatever price range you were hoping to buy a used BAM case for just buy a new one for that same price. You never know what you're getting when you buy a used case.

However, if you choose to go down this route, purchase the case before the end of December, as the doom and gloom of Brexit is bound to make things more complicated.

If you choose to go down the second hand route, Fleebay is an option... alternatively, ask around your fellow colleagues and teachers etc, they may well know of someone.

Good luck with your search!

It's made of a durable polycarbonate, much more resistant to scratching than the BAM cases, and is around the $200 mark.
