Thread: Modern Supercase vs. Travelite

    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?

    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.

    Here you go!
    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.
