Wonderful case !
tnemelc, 29.01.2018
- Build quality : because of some of the other comments, I was expecting a flimsy case. Although the hinge part could be a bit better, it feels sturdy to me and very good for the price.

- Look and feel : really good, especially the lining inside which looks fantastic

- Protection : My Cort Artisan fits perfectly inside and doesn't move an inch. I'm very cautious with my bass even when it's in the case so I can't really say what would happen if you bashed it heavily. I expect it to withstand some banging around in the back of the car and minor shocks but not being dropped from 3 meters high (well, maybe the bass would be saved, but the case would be ruined)

All in all a very good product, especially considering the price tag. One of the other comments mentioned a dark residue coming off the lining inside, but I did not observe such a thing. There was a chemical smell coming from inside at first (possibly due to the glue) but airing it out for 3 days was enough to get rid of it.

As always, Thomann provided absolutely stellar service !

Taken for Granted
Cornelius Quandary, 06.11.2020
You know, with a lot of gear I like "The Hunt". Deliberating over minor details and specs. When needing a case for a Jazz Bass, I didn't hunt. I just looked for Thomann's standard case and I bought it without thinking much about it. It came. Its nice. It gets hammered every week for months & I never think about it... Until I'm prompted to write a review. I think about it and... yeah... what a bargain. Cheap enough I didn't deliberate. Quality enough I have never questioned it. Maybe the purchases we end up taking for granted were the best ones?

Highly recommended
CoveredInSound, 29.05.2020
Earlier this year I had to take my precious baritone (my favourite guitar at the time, although inexpensive, very special to me) on a low cost airline. Worried about what might happen I checked around all the cases as there are none in Europe which specifically fit my instrument.

Finally I decided on this one and it was perfect - robust, not TOO heavy and, with a bit of extra padding above the headstock, a pretty good fit.

To be honest the airline treated my stuff well, this was checked as oversized luggage and personally handed to me at the destination without a single scratch on it.

I haven't traveled much more with it since then but in reality I only really wanted the case for that flight. I would have no worries about using it again on a plane and none about touring in a van with it.

This case is great value for money and I have recommended it on various baritone forums when the inevitable question of what case will fit comes up.

I also have a Tele I need to pick up and as soon as travel is possible again, I'll get the guitar version of this to bring it in.

Great case for standard basses
S. Walker, 31.03.2020
Fits a J-bass perfectly. Fixings are secure, ABS body of the case is very solid and rigid. Pretty much your bass is going to be looked after as best as possible without the cost and/or bulk of a full flight case. It's a big upgrade in protection over a foam or wood case.

Sure, a black ABS box isn't the most inspiring or beautiful of objects, but this is a case! Its primary function is to ensure the beautiful object inside (the bass) is protected, rather than being a work of art itself. It's a hard working, reliable hard case that offers a lot more than a traditional leather or fabric covered wooden option.

On the inside, you have three clear sections around the body of the bass. Even though you can see them in the images, it's worth making a deal about how roomy these are, without adding excess bulk to the external dimensions of the case, thanks to the fact the ABS case walls are much thinner than wood with the same strength.

At the top, there is a space for the headstock, which will accommodate a lot of headstock shapes and tuner placements, and is also large enough in both area and depth that you can place slightly larger than A4 sheets (or even books) of music, notes, or a set list underneath, which is really very useful.

In the middle, there is a long support for the neck, this is a good proportion of a typical neck in length and is padded the whole way. It's a lot more supportive than the single few-cm thick horizontal plank with a u-shape in that many cases have, and it really helps to stop the bass moving about in transit. That said, you might have an issue fitting extremely wide necks (like six or seven string basses) into this case, as the padded channel is flanked on both sides by two rigid boxes for storing accessories. Although these boxes do not have lids, they're generous in size and height. Easily enough room for two cables, a strap, spare strings, cleaning kit and other accessories, and a couple of standard form-factor pedals to boot, like a tuner and a drive or EQ pedal, if you don't want to carry a full pedal board with you. A lot of space indeed.

The main body of the case is just wider than a standard J-bass, which fits snugly but doesn't require wedging in. Fits a P-bass comfortably too. Oversized basses might be out of luck but this seems to house most conventional basses.

The lining is nice, a fluffy black feeling material (not velvety but thick strands, more like a soft carpet or rug), although it has a slightly obtrusive chemical/plastic smell which took a while to fade from mine.

The four latches are tight and strong, the one closest to the handle has a lock which although basic is enough for peace-of-mind in deterring casual would-be meddlers from opening your case. Ideal when it's left backstage or in a rehearsal room, but wouldn't stop someone breaking in long-term if the case was stolen.

The handle is comfortable enough, and placed to avoid balancing issues with a conventionally shaped bass. It feels firmly attached.

The case itself is bulky, but not excessively so. With the aforementioned handle it's easy enough to manoeuvre through winding spaces and open doors carrying this case. It's not the lightest definitely more than a foam case but less than an "old-school" wood-and-leather case. In terms of weight to protection ratio though, it does pretty well.

Overall this is a great option for someone who wants a case that can work hard and provide a lot of practicality. As long as you're not a regular air traveller with your instrument, or keen on physically throwing your bass into a van, it's unlikely this will fail to meet expectations. In general, it seems to be of comparable quality to more expensive ABS offerings, it's just not moulded to any one body shape like some of those are, nor does it have TSA-type locks, which are fairly useless on something that is not a much bulkier flight case.
