- Pedi cases are expensive, but are thoroughly and pragmatically designed, and last for a very long time. They are also very light-weight, so they are easy for traveling, long days at a music institute, or a full day of rehearsing. One of the SFSS faculty uses this case.
- Mooradian cases are actually covers for cases. They are an option if you like your case but need more protection or if you would like to cover your case to a backpack type. They are also relatively water-resistant, for walking in the snow or rain, and are relatively fire-proof. If you need a fire-proof case, however, you may have more immediate concerns.
- Like Pedi, Bobelock is thoroughly and pragmatically designed. Their cases are less expensive than Pedi, but also weigh substantially more.
