View Full Version : Modern Supercase vs. Travelite

Apr-16-2004, 8:32am
Does anyone have experience with both of these cases? I'm wanting to hear how they compare with one another. Can one of you Travelite owners take a length and depth measurement of the F-style case for me?

I dont use ethier for mando but my $3,500 violin is protected well by a travelite.

I swear by my Supercase http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif

The travelite is smaller and way lighter. The Supercase is larger, heavier, and offers much more protection. I had both and kept the Supercase, though it would be nice to have a Travelite for festivals. On the other hand, you can set a Supercase on its end and balance on it like a stool, which also comes in handy at festivals.

Could someone take a picture of the super case, inside and out with and without a mandolin. I cant find any picture anywhere.

It is not a soft case at all, very strong wood construction with the nylon cover. Comes with straps to carry it as a pack back

I don't think that is made of wood. It has some type of plastic framesheet in it that give rigidy. The Modern is a really nice case and I think it will be all the case you could ever need. I am one my third case as I have sold a couple and keep replacing it. It does a great job of insulating your instrument.

It has a real firm feel to it, if it is plastic it is thick.

Are their two interiors, red and grey perhaps?

any web sites as to who sells these?

I've been selling these cases for Modern for a couple of years. My prices are competive.There are a number of options available regarding features and colors.

Drop me note off line and we can talk.
