2015 Price Flying Wedge Banjo Case



The Price Flying Wedge banjo case is designed to afford excellent protection with minimum size, plus easier movement from airport curbside to boarding gate.
The peghead end is broadened to allow a second handle, and the lower corners reshaped to fit a set of wheels. Wheels are easily installed and snugged up with a 9/16" wrench. This bone case weighs 18 pounds, plus 1 pound for the wheel kit.

They are offered in a stark white, light gray or bone exterior with interior colors Crimson, Royal Blue or Forest Green.

The bass side box.

The treble side box.
Storage boxes are parallel with the neck, 14 inches long, extending the full width of the case. The box on the treble side of the neck can be opened and used without touching the banjo.

The box under the neck will hold 14 CD's in standard jewel cases, plus everything needed to play and maintain the banjo. Here you see the 14 CD's, plus two tuners, two sets of picks and a strap. The other box is still empty!

This is the best choice for storage capacity and portability. It's a bit heavier than the Classic, StreamLine or Teardrop, but not a lot.

2014 Price Teardrop Banjo Case



The Price Teardrop banjo case is designed to afford excellent protection with minimum size. It is 1/4" shorter, 1 1/2" thinner and 1/2" narrower than the early teardrop cases, and weighs about 4 pounds less, but is every bit as strong.

The peghead area is large enough to hold Stellings and Gibson top tensions with their larger pegheads.

All models are offered in a stark white, light gray or bone exterior with interior colors Crimson, Royal Blue or Forest Green.

This is the interior in crimson. This light gray case weighs 14 pounds.

Storage boxes parallel with the neck are 10 inches long, 5 1/2 inches wide at the butt end, and average 2 5/8" deep. They can be opened and used without touching the banjo.

The box under the neck at the nut is 5" wide along the long axis of the banjo.

This is the best choice for storage capacity and protection. It's a bit heavier than the Classic or StreamLine, but not a lot.

The question "Why is the price of the Teardrop higher than the Classic or StreamLine?" is certain to be raised. Simple answer is that the three boxes greatly increase the amount of time, material and outside labor expense, compared with a single box. Here's what the body shell looks like with the box walls installed, before the lids and upholstery are installed. You can see that it's much more complex, and I assure you much more labor intensive.

2011 Price StreamLine Banjo Case

The Price StreamLine banjo case is a unique fiberglass case designed to afford excellent protection with minimum size. It is essentially the same size as the classic case, and weighs about the same.

The peghead area is designed for pegheads of Gibson dimensions, and the Stelling peghead is too large for this model (Classic is the case of choice for Stellings and Gibson top tensions).

The storage box is 12" long, full width, under the neck, and very generous in size.
