Hiscox Cases Introduces Pro II Mandolin Case

Montreal, Canada — Hiscox Cases, the British manufacturer of fine quality molded musical instrument cases, has released its first mandolin case.

The PRO-II-MAN joins the company's Pro II Series. Designed to handle both 'A' and 'F' style mandolins, the case features a 2.0mm-thick Acrylonitrile Butadeine Styrene (ABS) hard plastic outer shell, bonded directly to an inner molding made of high-tech polyurethane foam. This semi-rigid inner molding is soft enough to cushion the most delicate of instruments, yet firm enough to provide an overall structural rigidity superior to any other case in Hiscox's price range.

The result is the ultimate in lightweight protection for mandolins - a case weighing in at 7.5 lbs that offers a degree of crush strength, shock resistance, and thermal insulation unmatched at its price point.

Additional highlights include an interior finished in wine-colored crushed velour, a generously sized accessory compartment, and steel fittings for an optional shoulder strap.

"The need for a durable, lightweight, dependable protection is crucial for musicians of all types - and mandolinists are certainly no exception," says John Kelley, Musiquip's General Manager. "Hiscox Cases are recognized worldwide for providing the perfect solution for traveling musicians. We're excited that the mandolin community will now be able to experience the benefits offered by a Hiscox Case."

Suggested Retail Price: $249.00

Length 31.5"
Width 13.2" (14.2" including handle and feet)
Height 6.3"
