Where to buy second hand BAM violin case?
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.
Why don't you buy the best new than you can afford? There are a lot of brands and models. 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.
David's right. Buy a new case it'll last a lot longer. A used case isn't something that you want to buy. 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.
David raises a good point, and his suggestion of Thomann.de is a great one! I got my BAM case from them years ago, it was cheaper than buying in the UK. 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 want a durable, shaped, white case, I'd highly recommend checking out the GEWA Pure violin case:
