Anthology Gear Debuts Its Leather Ukulele Case "Iwi" at Winter NAMM 2019
LAKE OSWEGO, OR - As the popularity of the ukulele continues to grow, and more specifically high-end ukuleles, Anthology Gear introduces "Iwi", their hand-crafted leather ukulele case that exudes an unmatched craftsmanship and beauty.
Iwi (meaning "shell" in Hawaiian) is a hybrid between a gig bag and a hard-shell case, designed to offer total protection of your ukulele with its pliable shock absorbing exterior cage and thickly padded soft interior. Iwi's exterior is made from the highest-grade full grain leather and features a stamped Hawaiian floral pattern and overlaid tropical leaves cut from the same high-quality leather. The case is crafted with industrial grade thread and includes rivet support at stress points. An exterior front pocket provides easy-access storage for small accessories or personal items. The padded ergonomic handle is steel reinforced at the body for durability. The case can be carried over-the-shoulder or like a backpack using the two removable padded shoulder straps.
Heavy duty zippers provide access to the inside of the case. The thickly padded soft interior is made from a high-grade, ultra-plush suede and includes protection pads at the headstock and tail peg. With the removable contoured padding and stabilizing straps at the neck and body, Anthology Gear's ukulele case can securely hold a soprano, concert or tenor-sized ukulele as well as a small-bodied mandolin.
Anthology Gear is debuting their ukulele case at Winter NAMM 2019 in Anaheim (booth #3252). Iwi will be available for order (in a whiskey brown and tobacco tan leather) in Spring of this year. For more product pictures go to their website www.anthologygear.com.

A customer recently asked us which of our guitar straps is most comfortable. Tyler's response is worth sharing:
All of our straps are made with the same high density foam padding. We try to use the same thickness although there can be a slight variance in padding thickness. Any 3" strap (No Quarter, Reticent, Glitch, Straight Up, etc.) all should be about the same in comfort.
