I bought this case to replace an older one that had fallen apart. Previous to buying this case I had to frequently re-tune my autoharp, but storing in this case kept the autoharp from going so far out of tune, even on tour in the winter. It is lined with a nice soft velvet material, and has a good size pocket for a tuner and some extra strings and picks. The handle feels solid and show no sign of breaking any time soon. It might be a bit heavy for those who need to carry it around a lot, but very good for those who are interested in a long lasting, solid case to keep their autoharp safe.
