First up is an impact resistant, fiberglass case from Guardian Cases. They are available for both resonator banjo and dreadnaught guitar. The shell is made from 6mm fiberglass with thick interior padding and a velvet lining.
Guardian says that these new cases were thoroughly tested during the prototype stage by professional bluegrass artists, and kept the instruments safe in both air and road travel conditions.
The arch top ring was popular before today’s more common flathead tone ring, and is still preferred by players who seek the sharper, crisper tone characteristic of this raised head style of banjo.
Both Recording King and Guardian cases are part of The Music Link family of companies.
