Folk Instrument Cases and Bags

Gator Cases manufactures folk instrument travel solutions that cater to musicians at every level. Browse our selection of folk instrument cases and bags for the ukulele, acoustic bass guitar, banjo, classical guitar, mandolin and violin. 

Folk Instrument Cases

Folk instruments have delicate components that need protection on the road. Pack your instrument into a case to keep it secure when traveling with or storing it. 

At Gator Cases, we provide three unique types of folk instrument carrying cases. Each case offers a different aesthetic and protection level. 

  • Soft cases: Our soft cases are hybrids between gig bags and hard cases. Secure your instrument inside a nylon case with a layer of plush-lined expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam. 
  • Wooden cases: Our wooden cases offer a vintage tweed look with increased protection. Trust the heavy-duty plywood, EPS foam and brass hardware to protect your folk instrument. 
  • Molded plastic cases: Our molded plastic cases are the premier safety solution. Guard your folk instrument inside a rugged acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic shell with soft EPS foam on the inside.

Folk Instrument Bags

A folk instrument transit bag is a lightweight, highly portable travel option. Choose a gig bag to easily carry your mandolin, ukulele, violin or banjo over your shoulder. 

We offer numerous types of folk instrument gig bags, each with handles and straps that fit comfortably in your hand or over your shoulder. Basic models feature reinforced fabric handles. Higher-level editions have foam handles and straps for maximum comfort. 

We also design our folk instrument gig bags with exterior pockets for extra strings, picks, capos and other accessories. 

Gator Cases and Bags for Your Folk Instruments

At Gator Cases, we offer reliable travel options for all folk musicians and any type of circumstance. Some days, you’ll need a lightweight carrier to use as you walk a few blocks to a local rehearsal or performance. Others, you’ll want to barricade your valuable instrument behind a sturdy, road-worthy case. When you go with Gator, you can find an option for every situation manufactured with quality that earns the trust of seasoned professionals. 

  • Gator folk instrument cases: Choose an instrument case to maximize protection. Cases resist impact and absorb shock through their hard exteriors and soft interior foam. They also feature rigid structures that make packing and stacking gear easier. 
  • Gator folk instrument bags: Choose an instrument bag when making short local trips. A gig bag is perfect for nearby rehearsals and performances thanks to convenient straps and pockets. You can trust your bag to protect your folk instrument against minor threats while lightening your load.
