View Full Version : Post a Picture Of Your Pegasus
I am extremely interested in buying one of these for my good old Yellowstone and I know that there are lots of unique color combinations out there...so if you have one post a pic!! The bad news is, Sam won't be taking orders for a while http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif ...
Here is my old pegasus case. Pegasus cases rule and IMO are the best case around. Unfortunately my Tucker F-5 did not fit exactly right since the Tucker has a thicker scroll. The Pegasus will fit 95 percent of all mandolins though.
Mine's about 6 months old with Signal red shell...
and tartan interior.(I told Sam to choose the pattern)
Good stuff guys! Keep em' coming http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif
Here is mine, from his first batch of A model cases. I posted this some time back, but can't find it in a search, so I hope its ok to post it again. How long are things kept on the message board before they disappear?
Anyhow, I like the case a lot, you can see the storage space under the peghead, where I have cable for my tuner, a can of flatpicks, a little string klipper and a set of strings. The other storage in under the neck support, which is perfect for a little Korg tuner and a nail clipper. The only minus is that there is not much strap room. I have lately been taking the strap off, folding it and putting it above the peghead. The place where I had in in the picture was not good for the lining on the top.
I also like the carrying strap, it is a pleasure to have both hands free for something else.
I went for more modest colors.
Fern Loar in Pegasus
wow...that speaks volumes to me about how trustworthy those cases are.
Bordeaux Red with Monarch of the Glen tartan.
Here's my blue (w/ dark blue inside). Purchased used right here on the cafe'.
Keeps my Stinnett nice and safe, and the tone guard fits fine.
Darryl: that has to be the coolest photo of a Fern Loar in a Peg. case. Between the bubblegum pink carpet and the framed Pickin Fern poster in the background overshadowed by the original Loar case standing proudly it's just cool.
The two tone royal purple/burgandy interior on black exterior is one pretty Peg. case.
I wouldn't expect you to think any less Mr Isenhour.........SINCE YOU TOOK THE PICTURE AND IT'S YOUR MANDOLIN AND PEGASUS CASE http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
Here's my brand-spanking new Pomeroy in a British Racing Green Pegasus decked out with the family tartan.
I've posted this round here somewhere, but here's my Yellowstone in a black/purple combo.
Dang I LOVE that glen tartan! I got to meet Sam at Merlefest, he's just as great a guy in person than he in on the phone an emails http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif It's definately worth the wait, they are AWESOME cases.
Off the topic a bit, LilCreekster, what kind of wood flooring is that? We will be doing some changes to the homestead soon and that caught my eye.
I think that the Pegasus cases are too cool! Trouble is: They guit making them for a while. What's that all about? It would seem that if demand is up that arrangements could be made.
OK Does anyone know another brand LIKE the Pegasus case?
Does any of you make(or can make) anything like a Pegasus case?
Maybe someone makes a knock-off version.?
Pure and simple...Sam is a victim of his own success. Thru word of mouth the Peg cases are recognized as perhaps the best stringed instrument cases in the world.
He is getting caught up on his orders so he can get back taking new orders again.
I've been waiting for mine for a few months, and honestly, am not in a terrific hurry. Sam told me he could meet whatever deadline I gave him, but I'm not inclined to press him when I can wait a while. Since I don't have the picture yet, mine will have an off-white shell with a custom tartan interior.
..whatever happened to the Coydog case that was supposed to hit the market...didnt these look similiar to the Pegasus?
heres a Coydog
Yeah I wondered the same thing?
Here's a pic of my red 2001 Peg with a Nugget and a gray 2004 Peg with a Gil
I love my case .. the blue one several posts above, that I purchased through the Cafe .. but I Really want a plaid interior. The envy continues. maybe I'll order one, than sell mine.
Here's the outside of the two Pegs.
whats the going rate for a pegasus? and how are the caltons?
I don't think Sam who makes the Pegasus has fine tuned his pricing. #That being said, the price should be in the $500 plus range. #The Caltons are great cases as well and are more available. #They are boxier and not as convenient but are solid as can be except that a larger headstock is tight raising a breakage concern. #Nevertheless, it is one of the best on the market. #Then you can have the case covered with a case cover...

Well, I'm only two years too late...
And open. Some say this is "beautiful", some say "obscene". Make your own mind up!
Love the inside. I bet that material would make a dandy bagpipe case!

The exterior of mine looks like yours. Here's the interior, with Gordon Tartan. Received 1/06.
