Banjo Soft Cases

Blue Heron Softshell Banjo cases are made with our standard materials. We use dense EVA closed cell foam for the body and sides of the case. The foam is sandwiched between the interior lining of lint-free ripstop nylon and the tough, water-repellent, 1000 denier cordura exterior fabric.

We laminate an additional 1/2" pillow of open-cell foam in the peghead area for a shock absorber.  The inside top is solid cordura to protect the case from metal hardware, and leather in the peghead area protects the case from sharp string ends.

For strength, durability, and ease of use, all Blue Heron Cases feature a large #10 nylon coiled zipper with two long-lasting nickel zipper pulls.

For carrying convenience there is a padded handle. Banjo cases have a handgrip on top of the case, and a grip and pocket on the back. A garment hook is attached to a D-ring and stowed in the pocket allowing the user to hang the case, with or without the instrument, backstage or in a closet. A handgrip makes it possible to hold the case vertically. We call it the elevator grip.

The case comes with a detachable 2" strap that can be used as a shoulder sling, or as a single strap backpack carry. This method is both secure and comfortable. Click here to see the shoulder strap carry method.

There is a zippered, pouch pocket on the top of the case for storage, and for those small accessories (picks, cards, etc.) there is a flat pocket inside the neck area of the case.

We also offer an optional padded Neck Pouch®. Click here to see pictures of the neck pouch. This 4”x 12" pouch provides an extra 80 cubic inches of usable storage space and extra padding under the neck of your instrument. Double-sided velcro securely attaches the Neck Pouch® to the case.

Padded backpack straps are standard on Resonator Banjo cases, and available as an option for other banjo case sizes.
