The mandocello soft case arrived to today - I’m very happy with it!  I’m very glad I went with the neck pouch/storage, and that handle is placed perfectly for balance! It’ll be so much nicer going to rehearsals and gigs!  


I received the case today. It is very well made and fits my Warren May dulcimer very nicely. I really love it! Thank you for making this wonderful case!


Just to let you know the case arrived (very quickly). It’s great!! So thoughtfully designed and well made. Far better than any soft case I’ve had before. Thank you!


I wanted to tell you how pleased I am with the case I purchased from you. It fits my Super 400 perfectly and is very high quality and is much lighter than my other gigbags.


Just a quick note to say that the splendid Bodhran Case has arrived and I am thrilled, it is a first class job 👍

As expected the bag, as per my previous one, is made ‘As Tough As Old Boots’

Thanks once again regards,


"The case has arrived. The instrument fits perfectly. The workmanship is impeccable. The color is lovely. I now have three of your cases of the highest quality and design. Thank you so much!"


The case came in yesterday. It’s beautiful and a perfect fit for this K. Yairi GL600 from the 1960s. I love the workmanship and attention to details. The garment ring is a clever, elegant feature. Thank you again for making such great cases!


I just ran across your website and got to thinking about the guitar case I purchased from you in around 2003 or so. I prefer a two shoulder carry so I added my own straps when I received it, but other than that, the case has served me very well and besides the inevitable soiling, it is in as good a conditions as it was when it arrived. It fits in the overhead bin of every aircraft I have traveled in from the small two row puddle jumpers to wide body airliners. It is extremely durable, well padded, light-weight and perfectly designed. It has made many thousands of miles of air-travel worry free and I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate it. The only downside for you is, it is so durable, I don’t foresee a repeat sale! Thank you for an outstanding product. I have recommended you guys many times!


The case was delivered today and it is a superb fit for my odd-duck, small body Gallagher. Ken, thank you so much for taking the extra time to talk through the measurements with me. You experience made all the difference in finding the right size case for a weird size guitar. It is perfect. And, Maria, thanks for keeping informed on shipping, etc. You both build confidence in your customers.


Thank you so much! My mother loved the case (especially the color!). It arrived in time for the last night of Chanukah actually which made it even better. She misses her embroidered heron from her old case but the protection the new one offers cannot be beat. Thanks again.


Just posted this on Banjo Hangout. Gave you a "ten" (highest rating)"Last week I received two soft banjo gig bags from Blue Heron. One for my open back Bishline Okie, and the other for my custom Bishline resonator. I am blown away! First, the ordering process: I responded online, and Ken Jorgenson, owner, phoned me back promptly. I gave him the measurements of the banjos, selected options (neck pad in particular), and colors for the cases. Ken said it would take about two weeks until I received my cases.The cases arrived in a timely manner, and I was immediately impressed with the construction of the "shells" and the padding within. And they look great. The handles on both cases are perfectly positioned for easy one-hand carry, and the straps that permit shoulder or backpack carry seem plenty sturdy, even for the heavier resonator banjo. Both cases are surprisingly light for the protection they provide, and the custom fit, easy portability, sufficient room for a capo and a few other things in the outside pocket, and the fact that they have super eye appeal make these my "forsake all others" banjo bags for comfort on foot and trips in the van.


I have had my Blue Heron dulcimer case for nearly a month now, and every time that I open it I continue to be thoroughly impressed with your fine design and craftsmanship.


She has arrived! Such a beautiful case. Sturdy and much smaller and lighter than my current one, and with a great color. Thank you so much!!! Me and my autoharp are ever so grateful. All the best!


I just received the custom case in Belgium for my Vega Fairbanks Style M banjo. I am very pleased. It is a perfect fit and I just wish I had bought one sooner! Thanks for an excellent product.


Thank you so much, Ken. By the way, I do have several of your cases (Blue Lions and 1 custom for a Bear Meadow). I do appreciate the quality of your workmanship and the protection they provide - so, thank you again.


Confirming that the case arrived. It's fantastic and just what I needed. Thanks. The balance of the handle seems to be just right. It's maybe 1/2" longer than it needs to be, but that's fine. I especially like the hanger with it's pouch - nice little touch. Thanks again for the great work and meeting my Thailand deadline. You'll be hearing from me for another case upon my return.


I just wanted to let you know that My Blue Heron case arrived today safe and sound. It's very nice and high quality. My Fishook reso is definitely a snug fit, so it won't be sliding or bouncing around inside the case. I look forward to taking it out and not having to worry about all the weight of my hardshell case.

Thanks again!


The case arrived today and it fits perfectly. Now both my bodhrans have great homes!

Thanks for making such a fantastic product!


Just a quick note to let you know that I'm finally back in Holland and able to try out the bag with my new instrument. It fits, it's beautifully made, and I am both satisfied and delighted!

Once again, many thanks!


The new case is splendid. Good fit, nice accessory pouch inside (helps keep the neck steady too) and generous storage in front. I like the one-shoulder strap too. Mahalo nui loa (a great big thank you).


The case arrived yesterday. I am delighted. It sits so perfectly on my back, as if nothing is there! And thanks a million for getting it to me in time for my upcoming tour.
