If you travel a lot or just seek superb protection for your instrument, you should consider a Calton case. These custom fitted fiberglass cases are rugged, well balanced, and attractive, with interiors custom tailored to each instrument. Each half of every case is hand molded in a single piece, using pigmented resin, with no seams to separate and color that is integral to the fiberglass. Hardware is high quality plated steel and is attached with steel rivets and reinforcing plates. The leather handle provides the optimum in comfort and balance. Case interiors are hand crafted from high quality foam padding, using up to 15 measurements and a template of the instrument. Made here in the USA, in Austin, TX; which just seems right.
