I really wish I would not have purchased this case. In addition to fragile leather ties, the fabric strips between bouts and pegs of the instruments do very little to protect (the violin bout has a ding from the viola pegs. The liking under the adjustable viola pad also leaves much to be desired as the lining can easily be lifted away from the actual case (making the instrument less secure). Don’t buy this case!
Not best, but pretty good
It works, but it has some problems 1.) the combination lock is rubbish. The number dials don’t move freely, so it’s not usable. 2.) the case shell is not super hard; it flexes when pressure is applied. Do not let anything stack on top of it. If you are just using for carrying, it’s okay. 3.) the divider between viola and violin side is a strip of felt fabric, it’s nothing solid. This hasn’t been an issue so far though. 4.) yes the leather strings are a fragile; however to solve this I use a “double hole cord lock” ($5 for pack of 10). I thread the leather strings through it, push the button the tighten and secure. This way there is no need to tie the strings. 5.) the hinges used connecting base to lid look questionable, but to far they are holding. I think if they where out, they could be replaced if you are skilled with tools. It’s not a case meant to taking a licking. I wouldn’t feel safe flying with it. But it will work if you just need something to transport two instruments from point A to point B by foot or by wheel.
Good case, bad ties
Overall, the case is pretty good. It is light to carry and protective. This case would be greatly improved by adding velcro straps instead of the strings used to tie down the instruments. The strings in this case are very brittle and break quite easily—I can barely tie down the viola now since the strings have broken so much.
