Viola Case FC75
Overall experience is fine. Although there was an issue with the latch on the case. The two screws on the top part of the latch were/are(?) too short to keep the top part of the latch connected to the case. The top part of the latch was actually lying inside the case. I contacted support(?) and they immediately sent me a replacement case… Guess what happened. Same issue. I took my viola to my local luthier because at the last moment I decided wanted to have Dominant strings installed on my viola. He simply replaced the 2 screws with ones that were a little longer and able to bite deeper into the top of the case without breaking through the frame of the case. All’s well. I’m quite satisfied with the case.
I picked up this case to go with a new viola and I can't say enough good things about it. It looks terrific, has a good slim profile, and is really lovely in construction and materials. The hardware is great quality and the handle and straps are solidly made. It's heavier than my previous case, but that's a good thing for my purposes. It's incredibly sturdy and really well designed in terms of storage space-- in addition to four bow clips, it can fit two shoulder rests (one inside a compartment! I keep the other wrapped up near the scroll), my ridiculous rosin collection, several kinds of mutes, my Korg, string envelopes, a small notebook, pencils and peg compound with room to spare while keeping everything sorted and secure. After adjusting it to fit my 16" viola, I have a perfect little space to tuck away cleaning cloths. It looks and feels way more expensive than its price, and I feel great knowing my viola's safe and sound from all the stuff I insist on schlepping around with me all the time. I definitely recommend it!
