Wonderful case, great price
Just got this with my new Pono. In my 35 years of playing music this is the nicest hardshell case I've ever had. It seems like it would cost twice as much. And the brilliant design holds the body by the edges, no pressure on the bride. Very nice.

The thick black vinyl shrinkwrap on the handle (not tape) makes it feel very sturdy.

A nice hard case.
I was a little unsure about getting this since I had seen some of these cases with crazy big handles on them. They appear to have fixed that issue. The handle is about 3/4" in diameter. It looks like black electrical tape is wrapped around each end of it. That seems a bit questionable. I have had no issues with it though.

The bottom of he case has three round chrome feet to keep the case off of a dirty floor. The red thread for stitching around the top is a nice accent. It came with a key to lock to middle clasp on the case. The key doesn't seem to do anything. The way the handle attaches to the case might be a weak point but time will tell. The inside is real plush. It's made in Indonesia, which I view as a plus. Overall, this is a great choice for anyone looking for a hard case. If you need a shoulder carry strap, look for a different case as this doesn't have one.

Top notch and first class case.
Last year I tripped and fell going into my teaching class. I landed face first with all of my weight on the case. I broke my glasses, broke my shoulder, but no harm came to my Pono baritone nor the case. I am preparing to order a new Pono MTD and of course an O'ahu case with it.

Clumsy Handle
I must agree with other reviewers. I love my new Pono MC-PC (which came with this hard shell Oahu case), but the handle on my case is ugly, and too big for my lady hands. It's a small thing, really, and I have to let it go...but the handle really mars the beauty of the case. It looks bloated and ungraceful.

Poor Quality
I bought this case with my Islander ukulele from The Ukulele Site about 9 months ago. I have only used it about 6 times leaving my house. I hang my ukulele on the wall at home, so it rarely gets opened. I went to toss something in the storage area, and discovered one of the hinges is cracked. The case has never been out of my sight when not at home. Needless to say I am VERY disappointed.

Great Value for Price
I have a Ko'Aloha Sceptre tenor ukulele - and iit was very hard to find a case for it, due to the shape. While I was in California, a friend from Ukulele Underground suggested I try the O'ahu case from HMS, so I called them.

I had the case in 2 days, and while my Sceptre doesn't fit perfectly (the shape is very different, and the body is very thin), with a couple of microfiber cloths for padding I feel the instrument is very well protected.

Most of my instruments come with hard-shell cases, but if I were to buy an ukulele that needed one, I wouldn't hesitate to buy another case from HMS

Great Case!!
At first I thought it was quite a bit more to buy this case compared to the canvas case. But then I realized if I am going to buy a really nice ukulele, I'm going to want a really nice sturdy and durable case! I will be recommending this case to all my friends and I will purchase another for the next uke in the future!

I bought this along with a Kala tenor, and it fits perfectly. The handle that came with mine is different than the one in the picture; I assume they've changed the design. There's also red stitching on the top that I think looks nice.

Perfect protection
The O'ahu hardshell case has protected our Ukulele perfectly on its trip to Europe. The slightly arched top looks quite fancy.
When opening this case, we always forget that is has three locks, whereas our other cases have only two locks and can be opened in a single move.
Our good impression is only lowered by the handle that looks rather clumsy and feels too big in our hands.
While the Kanilea Concert Uke it came with fits perfectly, the case is too small for our Kala KA-C Concert, which has a bigger bottom.

Case for Kala Baritone
I have this case for my Kala acacaia Baritone Uku, and it fits it very comfortably.

I would not use any other case for protection of any uku and the padding is very good also.

Mahalo to Andrew and all the crew at the ukuelele site aka Hawaiian Music supply for having such good stock to choose from.

Almost perfect
My case just arrived and it is just what I need to protect my KoAloha soprano from myself - I am my own worst enemy.

I agree with another reviewer about the size of the handle. It's not what is pictured and it is way to big - even for a dude. But I can live with it. A nice add-on would be hardware for a shoulder strap.

A general comment about my online buying experience and delivery is this - if you have a drop dead date when you need the case, do a follow-up call to make sure when the case will ship from the store. HMS also requires a signature at delivery which is a good thing but if no one can sign for the case and you don't have a problem with FedEx leaving the case at your door, tell HMS that no signature is required.

Soprano Case
The soprano case is sturdy and my ukulele fits in there nicely and is well protected.

The case also is lockable and came with two keys, but one of the keys was the wrong size and won't fit the keyhole. I don't need to lock the case, so I am not worried about one of the keys being the wrong size.

The handle on the soprano case is not like the one pictured here on the HMS site. The handle on my case is designed differently and in my opinion it is way too large (the link below is a picture of my case). I would have much preferred for the case to have a regular sized handle like the one shown in the HMS photos. The handle on the soprano case would be fine for somebody with really large hands, but I find that the handle size makes it a bit uncomfortable to carry and it looks out of proportion.

Just a quick shout out for my Oahu hard case: it's light, it's durable, and it's well-designed. I'm pretty good at abusing gear, and this case has taken it well. Recommended.

Great case!
I bought this case cause it had the look I wanted and the reviews were all very favorable. I'm so glad I did! My concert ukulele sits snug inside, feels totally protected by the hard sides. It's not really heavy to me, and the storage place under the neck is a nice size. Holds my humidifier, and clip on tuner easily and has extra room. So worth the little extra money.

My Oahu Case is Perfect Protection!
My friend recommended ordering an Oahu Hardshell Case from Hawaiii Music Supply for my Koaloha Tenor Ukulele. He suggested to tell Andrew that the case was to be for a Koaloha Tenor so that I would be assured of a proper fit. I ordered over the Thanksgiving Holiday, following the suggestion, with a note to Andrew. The case arrived in just a few days and it is a perfect fit!

The soft, black, plush lining provides a super comfort fit, yet has a nice, hinged, pick-pocket for extra strings, and a tuner, with additional space for a humidifier and a cleaning cloth! The textured black covering on the hardshell case is durable and easy to keep clean. The case has three easy to work clasps so you can open it with one hand, and they are very secure. It even comes with a key! My new Oahu Hardshell case is Perfect Protection for my Koaloha! Thanks and Happy New Year!

Excellent case with room for all of the essentials
I ordered the Oahu Hardshell Ukulele Case during the 2012 Christmas season with the Pono -ATD - Gloss Acacia Tenor. Perfect fit for this ukulele, even with the extended strap button/jack for the MiSi active pickup. Has room for the humidifier by the headstock, a couple sets of strings under the neck, and a little bin to hold my clip-on tuner and A/C supply for charging the MiSi pickup. Everything fits snug and does not bounce around in there. Case is solid and well built. I highly recommend.

Surprisingly Strong!!!
My son always brings his ukulele home with him from college, and travels often. I bought him this case along with his ukulele, and I cannot tell you the number of times I've accidentally dropped it, and the ukulele was just fine.
This case is a life saver in my opinion!
I've also noticed that it's easier for him to fit his ukulele in there as opposed to his old hard case. We are definitely happy with this purchase!!!

A must have for travelers!
I frequently travel between Michigan and Georgia. Sometimes by plane, others by truck. This case truly protects and secures your instrument. The cushion lining fits like a glove for my ukulele, something not common. Most cases only fit certain brands, but this one is truly a jack of all trades.

In short:
Hardshell case protects it from falls and falling objects
The lock keeps it away from thieving hands
The cushion lining will fit just about any ukulele of the same size (if it's a soprano case, it'll fit mose sopranos)


Over all, I would suggest this to any musician who travels frequently with their ukuleles

I purchased this with my Pono-MCD and couldn't more pleased. In fact, I like it better than the case that came with my K-uke (x4 the cost of the Pono). Well built. Storage is big enough for me. The latch and handle hardware are sturdy. The workmanship is very high quality. All around, this is an excellent case.

Simply the Best
Between my wife and myself, we have 7 ukuleles in the house. Five of our ukes rest comfortably & happily in Oahu hardshell cases. If the other two weren't odd sizes/shapes, they'd be in Oahu cases as well. Why?

I have a Pono MSD-E (that I bought from Hawaii Music Supply many years ago) that is my workhorse ukulele. I take it to every gig and on every trip I take. It has only ever lived in an Oahu hardshell case. At one gig, the venue was up two flights of stairs. Yeah, you guessed it: the uke went tumbling down a flight of stairs. Just one scuff on the case and uke was completely unscathed. And on a flight, things really shifted in the overhead bin and my Pono fell out and straight onto the floor. Again, zero damage to the uke and case.

Besides being protection from the elements, Oahu hardshell cases also allow you to effectively use humidifiers to keep your ukulele from drying out. I use Dampit humidifiers. They slide right into the sound hole and the uke's strings hold them in place. Since the body is the part that needs the most protection, this is an optimal arrangement.

If you're looking a great case to protect your ukulele investment for years to come, this is the case for you.

Love these cases!
I now own 5 of these cases. 3 Tenor's, 1 Concert and 1 Soprano. Just bought one for my 30's Martin Style 1 Soprano, it fits like a glove! I've not had any issues with these cases, they fit all my ukes perfectly. Owned 2 of them for a little over 2 years, and they are holding up great, even with lots of travel and some abuse.

These are my go to cases when I buy a new uke. I trust them with my $300 Pono, with my vintage 30's Martin Style 1 Soprano and my beautiful 3A Koa Kamaka Tenor.

Great Case
I love these cases (I now have three). I wanted to get a hard case to take my Ohana Concert on the plane to Las Vegas. (Yes, I took my uke to Vegas.) Preferably an arch top. I spent way too much time on the net researching cases, reading reviews, the usual. I even drove an hour each way to the nearest uke dealer to try some out and check the fit. The Kala and Uke Crazy cases I liked were just way too big and sloppy inside for my precious Ohana. Finally I called HMS and talked to the friendly sales guy about the fit, and ordered the O'ahu case. The cover, lining, handle and hardware are all excellent. They fit their respective Ponos perfectly. The fit with my Ohana concert is so close, all I did was put a small piece of foam from a bicycle helmet along lower bout end of the case and it fits like it was made for it. If only it had a shoulder strap....

Very good case
Nothing wrong to say about this hardshell case. I travel a lot and I am very confident with this case to protect my uke. The only problem though is that it looks like a gangster mashine gun case like in the 30s so because of the "clichรฉ" I am regularly stoped by the airport security to check it .... Still not a place to hide a gun but a very case for a uke!

I got the Oahu hardshell concert case with my uke from HMS. It's very sturdy, nice fit and finish, and overall well built. It has plush lining with a a firm foam padding between the lining and the shell. The uke fits in the case perfectly - no slopping around. There's also a small compartment under the neck. My only gripe is finding a convenient place or means to attach a humidifier.

Suitable for airlines
On top of being a well made and solid case, it fits nicely as a "personal item" instead of a carry-on bag. It even fits in the overhead on small regional jets (concert size). I've flown 5 or 6 times with it in the past 2 months without a scratch. Plus it's so well made that even if I had to check it I wouldn't be too worried as it's a tough little case.

This is a fine case. Nothing special, but its solid, has storage for my tuner and strap, isn't too expensive, and holds my uke well. Can't ask for much more than that! I've travelled with this case for a little more than a year--monthly uke group, playing with friends, going camping--it's held up well.

Oahu Hardshell Uke Case
In August of 2012 I purchased a KoAloha Sceptre from Hawaii Music supply and wanted a good hardshell case that would fit this unique uke and also provide maximum protection. Andrew suggested the Oahu case and he was spot on! The quality of construction is superior and it looks elegant as well. The Oahu case fits my tenor Sceptre just right and provides all the protection and style that I could wish for. Thanks to Andrew for his great advise.

Best Case Out There for the Money
In my opinion, this is the best ukulele case out there for the money when you consider protection, weight, durability and yes, even aesthetics. I have taken this case on airplanes (even had to gate check it once - shudder), in the truck of my car, and to bars where it was bumped, jostled and spilled on throughout the evening and in every situation it did a great job protecting my uke. The outside has gotten a little scuffed up through it all (call it character) butthe case has held up to a decent amount of use and abuse without cracking and the latches remain in great shape too. The only quibble that some might have has to do with storage space but for me this is not an issue - I typically throw a tuner and extra set of strings in the interior pocket and then I also toss in a humidifier in next to my uke's headstock. Sheet music can go in a different bag. An excellent case overall.

Oahu uke protector
Once I have bought a uke as a musical instrument, the first thing in my mind is a case that can protect it. The construction of Oahu hardship uke case is strong and sturdy. It is built like a tank from interior to exterior. The pad inside provides a shock protection, though no one will slam and drop his/her instruments on the ground carelessly. I like the fabric of the skin that looks like an vintage instrument case!
