This was the kind of first bow case I ever got at Quantum Bass Center. I have to say I was always pleased with it and was glad to have a bow case at the time. At first you don't always know what you are getting into, whether a bow case is really necessary? But it's been a lifesaver many times when I had to take just my bow and not have my bass with me. Another time a friend had his bow break when he got to a rehearsal when he took his bass case off and forgot the bow was inside, when he took the bow out of the bass bag it was broken. I know my bow won't be subjected to this, as I now have a nice bow (a Gary Karr model Carbow which I also got at Quantum Bass Center) and I don't want to worry about it. This case comes with a strap which is great to carry it on your shoulder, however the pocket on the front where you are supposed to put your rosin is a little bit small and you have to fight to stuff the rosin in there at first! I have to say I didn't use the pocket very much.
