This used hardcase comes in mottled red and has a soft red velvet lining. It is Futozao/Tsugaru Shamisen sized, but of course smaller shamisen will fit as well.
Not having to take your instrument apart to transport it is a huge game changer, because you’re always ready to whip out your shamisen and play. Keeping your instrument assembled means it practically stays in tune. The hard shell keeps your instrument safe from people, doors and sneaky corners attempting to bump into your shamisen.
The outer shell is synthetic and water repellent. The additional handle on short top side of the case and the complementary feet on the bottom short side make this longcase stand safely in an upright position as well.
The longcase safely closes with four clasps.
