Default Humidity Control Guitar Cases - Recommendations Needed

Hi All,

I am interested in finding a guitar case that is "better than average" for humidity control. I realize that is relative, but I would like to think there might be an improvement over the TKL cases that I currently have.

Any thoughts on Hiscox or Humicase? Ideally, I would like it to be a little on the lighter side, as well.

I am open to any and all ideas! Need 00 and OM size.

Thanks so much!

I like Ameritage cases but they're not light.

Agree. I like them, too. But, the weight is a bit too much for me.

The Hiscox "Liteflite Pro II" is a good case. Carbon fibre and lightweight. They have an extruded aluminium seal all round which interlocks giving a very good, tight join. I have two for my classicals.

Any of the foam cases with a good seal will do. TRIC, Hiscox, Wolfpak, etc. I am now using a Hiscox II and love it.

Hi Bob -

Curious...where did you buy yours? These do intrigue me! Thanks!
