Our flight-worthy teardrop mandolin cases fit A, F and other mandolins with interiors hand-fitted to your specific instrument.
Each Hoffee Case features a composite shell built of genuine carbon fiber – not a fake printed look-alike. Shells are arched on the top and bottom for even more strength.
The finish is clear showing the black carbon fiber or tinted in your choice of colors: silver-gray, deep-red, blue, forest-green, purple, or opaque white. Case top and bottom join at a tight fitting, tongue-and-groove, water-resistant seal. Comfortable leather handle is located for optimal carrying balance. Durable hardware includes two strut hinges that eliminate the need for a lid strap, and three secure locking draw latches.
Fitted interiors, crafted of premium fabric, feature a generous storage compartment. A snug neck support and top & bottom headstock pads cradle and protect your valued instrument. Our customers say “It fits like a glove.”
Interior colors are black, green, red, blue or gold.
To upgrade and customize your Hoffee Case even further, choose from these options:
Thinsulate brand insulation to mitigate the effects of extreme temperature conditions. Thinsulate is installed in the case under the foam and fabric, so you won’t see it. But you’ll know it’s there when you open the case and pick up your instrument on a blistering or freezing day. Thinsulate is made in the US by the 3M Corporation.
Insulated professional-grade cloth covers to protect the case from surface wear, and supply an added layer of temperature control. Our premium covers are made to exactly fit Hoffee Cases.
Comfortable, high quality padded carrying straps in shoulder (single strap) and backpack (double strap) configurations. Straps clip on and off D-rings securely mounted to the case, and are made for us right here in the USA by Neotech.
Shoulder strap $30
Backpack straps $50
Twist latches for those who prefer an alternative to locking draw latches. A padlock hasp at the center position allows the user to install a lock of your choice, including a TSA lock.
Do I need to fill out and submit a measurement form and body tracing in order for Hoffee Cases to custom fit my instrument?
We have an extensive library of specifications for hundreds of instruments. We do have specs for most common models. Contact us to find out if you’ll need to supply measurements and a tracing. If so, please use our measurement form.
How long will it take for me to get my case?
It typically takes about a month from the time you order a Hoffee Case until you receive it. This time can vary depending on the type of case ordered and on how many other orders are pending. Contact us if you need a more precise delivery date.
How will I get my case?
We ship most of our domestic orders via Fed-Ex. International orders typically are shipped via post.
Do you offer a warranty?
Hoffee Cases stands behind our products. Our warranty is simple – free repairs for life. You cover the round trip shipping.
Do you offer artist discounts?
Most of our customers are artists. We simply cannot offer discounts to all our customers.
What’s the best exterior color choice for touring in hot and sunny locales?
Opaque white is the best exterior color for reducing solar heat gain. Our optional Thinsulate brand insulation offers further heat protection.
Do you ever sell cases with cosmetic flaws?
Yes. We sometimes have cases that have cosmetic flaws that are sold at a discount. We never sell cases with any structural flaws so these cases will have a full warranty. Contact us for details and availability.
Shipping $45 for US. Contact us for international shipping rates.
We used to have a pretty standard one year warranty that was written in legalese. Because we stand behind the products we make, we found ourselves repairing cases at no charge well after the one year warranty had expired. Many of these repairs were for normal wear and tear. We strive to take care of our customers so we are changing the official warranty to “free repairs for life.” As long as the owner of the case pays the round trip shipping, we will repair to the best of our ability any case for the life of the case.
Please note that since the cases are made to order, there are no returns. If you are unhappy with the case we will do our best to make you satisfied but we cannot accept returns.
