-- Authorized AMERITAGE Dealer Since 2005 --
Up for consideration is a new Ameritage AME-82 hardshell mandolin case for all vintage + modern A- and F-size mandolins. This case features an ultra-sturdy 6-ply hardwood shell with Arched top, burgundy trim, brass hardware, and a compression-fit foam suspension system to offer maximum protection for your new or vintage instrument. Also, it has a humidity control system with digital hygrometer, and silica pellets / humidifier for keeping the humidity inside the case close to the ideal constant of 50%. It is not easy to find a beefy, high-end case for F-size mandolins, and here is one of the best ones currently made available for immediate purchase. This is a superb, high-end, F- and A-size mandolin case, that will not only protect your mandolin during travel to and from gigs, but also from drastic swings in temperature and humidity while at home!!!
“I am quite impressed with the Ameritage case. It fits the guitar like a glove and appears to be more than capable of protecting the guitar from the rigors of travel. I have not seen a case that offers the same level of all-around protection and at a fraction of what carbon cases cost. I've talked with an engineer from Los Alamos National Lab who has worked extensively with carbon fiber and he does not think that it is a material well-suited for guitar cases. It has great crush protection, is light, and has sex appeal, but is actually very poor at isolating the guitar from shock. I own many guitars, and I have more cases than guitars. The Ameritage is easily the best choice for the money and one of the best cases period, cost not withstanding. I would not hesitate to fly with the Ameritage case.” -- Greig Schneider, D.M.A.
“The Ameritage guitar case is just stunning in quality. I´m very happy I decided to go for it.” -- Torbjørn Weien, Oslo, Norway

In short, this case represents one of the very best cases on the market today for A-and F-style mandolins. It protects the mandolin from handling associated with travel, and it seals andalso protects from swings in temperature and humidity. If you find that the humidity exceeds the normal range of around 50%, simply install a silica gel packet in the case compartment. If the humidity falls too low past 40%, you can add a few drops of water to the humidifier until the humidity climbs back up to around 50%.
