O.M. Mönnich CVF 02 F350058 Violin Case Classic Shape
O.M. Mönnich CVF 02 F350058 Violin Case Classic Shape
Price: £28.39

4.0 out of 5 stars Violin case, 13 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seems quite sturdy, compact but light to carry.
Straps seem fine
Quite small inside. Not sure what size violin is meant to fit inside but it sure isn't a full size one.
Measuring the inside length ways it's about 16 and 1/2 inches which I think is a 1/8 size violin
Has a little compartment for resins or such but no such for a neck rest
And seems to have a section on lid for bow/s

This review is from: APC E20 T Banjo Case (Electronics)
Seems quite sturdy, compact but light to carry.
Handle straps are adequate but a little thin
Shoulder strap seems fine.
Has small pocket for strings
More suitable for small body banjos -i.e. an 8' width body

seems quite sturdy. wide floor space spread so quite easy for other band members to trip over. Shame there's no bag but apart from that it's good

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper alternative, 17 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It works fine..and was a bit cheaper when I bought it so now the price has gone up I went to B&Q and got some Plumsure hose washer rubber 1/2'. which for a pack of five at £1. 07 is cheaper and goes a lot further and they seem to work just as well. Ok, it hasn't got Fender written on it but you can't have everything

Took a punt on these as they were going cheap. Usually buy Martin Custom Lights 11's.
Nice clear tone with just the right amount of depth in them.
The D's are 30 when my Martins are 32 and the G's are 20 when my Martins are 23 but the other strings are the same gauge though that may be completely irrelevant..oh, and the G appears to be unwound silvered steel rather than Bronze wound.
I'll see how they go. I'm sure they're as good as all the other strings

I usually buy D'addarios but thought I'd take a punt on these because they were on offer. Very nice and smooth with a bit of bend in them. Maybe it's just me but they feel really slim. I had to check they were 10's and they are and are the same gauge on all strings as the D'addarios...they just look and feel thinner. Doesn't really matter in the great scheme of things...just a bit odd. Anyway, nice strings and good sound...and you get a free Dunlop sticker. Yay!

3.0 out of 5 stars Tuning keys, 26 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got these for a Tokai Love Rock Les Paul copy as one of the tuning keys was broken and it seemed cheaper to change the whole lot than try to get one replacement. Colour is a slightly duller and darker than they original ones..but when I tried to take a photo to show the difference it doesn't quite show up. A keen eye would clock that they weren't originals. Replacing and fitting easy enough. I just re-used the screws and the round metal bit and just replaced the pegs. They are just a tiny bit shorter in length but this hasn't affected anything. They are a wee bit stiff which may ease up over time. Very simply packed in plastic bag and bubble wrap but arrived in good time

4.0 out of 5 stars slip it on, 26 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As someone who's not a big slipper fan but needs must, I couldn't find a pair I really liked that much. A lot of them are a bit too 'grandpa' for my liking. I thought I'd take a punt on these as they are as close to what I wanted. In a way picture doesn't do it justice and they look better on than the photo on the website. The brown one is a little bit darker than the pic. Size is fine. Not too snug and and not too loose and hopefully will last a good time. Wish I'd bought them earlier to stop me wasting time looking around

bought to replace our previous item which in it's wisdom(?) had a 10 year un-replacable battery in it. This one is the same -ish but has the option to change the battery. Tested it. All fine and should rouse us should there ever be a fire
