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 blue outer shell and red felt lining make a very chic combo. The outer shell is synthetic and water repellent. There’s some surface scratches on the back side (see photos). They’re just superficial and really no big deal.
The longcase safely closes with four clasps.
