I bought a hard case from these folks:

While not a perfect fit, my Shehata fits just fine... had to use a piece of foam to support the neck and a thin piece to protect the pegbox.

You can find some of the most well- known lute case makers here: lute case

Correct url for Rouillard cases http://pierre.fab.free.fr/cases.html




Best wishes

Weird... it works for me... Try searching for 'Hand Made Strings' and look under the 'People' tab, they are in Istabul

Hello,

I offer custom made hard cases for oud and any other instruments in my shop. Have a look here:

https://music-strings.de/aoud_10

After having cases from Germany for over 25 year, I was sad that this factory finished some time ago. But I found the above solution. That are wooden cases with black cover and a plush interiour. The cases are made especially for every single instrument. So it fits verry well. The weight is a bit less than 4 Kg. I have been travelling several times with them and had them also in the cabin in the luggage box.

Best regards
Matthias

Those are nice cases... had I known about your cases, I would have seriously considered one of these...

I may still consider buying one for the 'custom' fit...

Looking around I found a couple of old messages here and these additional makers as well by searching for lute hard cases... not a big jump from lute to 'ud:

Hi All,

After a lot of research, I decided to go with Gocauo recommendation (Handmade Strings). And, so far so good.

Their customer service is excellent nad their price is affordable compared to custom made cases. Of course, it's not going to be the same quality.

You can contact them on Instagram, Facebook, or WhatsApp and they have different models and materials.

https://www.instagram.com/handmadestrings/

Whatsapp:+90 (534) 586 4001

I did not receive my case, yet because I chose a really cheap really slow shipping method, but I will post another update as soon as I get it.

Hi,

Quick update, I got the case, and it's in excellent shape, and the quality seems very good. The bad news is, my Oud did not fit in the case :(

They seem open to returning the case and getting a different one, but I will try to see if I can see this here instead of shipping the thing back.

Anyways, I just wanted to say that these guys are very responsive and they have excellent customer service.

And, if you interested un buying this case, check out this post: http://www.mikeouds.com/messageboard/viewthread.php?tid=17186

Regards.

I had ordered their fiberglass case... I am very sorry to hear the case you ordered from them did not fit your oud!

Yeah that's a bummer :(

I'm trying to see if I can sell it or find a way to modify it.
