Banjo Cases

Finding  period correct style luggage can present a challenge for a reenactor.   In particular, musical instrument cases appropriate to the Victorian era  can be particularly difficult to come by.

With my Minstrel Banjo and Gourd Banjo instrument  cases, I do not exactly reproduce any particular antique case, but as  with my banjos, I take general styles and furnishings from the 1800s and  incorporate them into my own cases.  I use modern reproduction  Victorian trunk hinges and hasps to create a vintage feel.  All of my  cases are made of wood.  Typically I paint the outside black and  upholster the inside with a green felt. There is no padding other than  the felt. These are sturdy cases and my personal one (banjo within) has  survived several journeys by Concord coaches and Wells Fargo stages.  (Did I mention that I am a time traveler?)

I am always willing  to customize.  If you have a picture of a specific case that you would  like me to reproduce, please send me the picture with desired dimensions  and I will provide a quotation.
