At ProAudioLand, we work hard to bring our visitors the latest and greatest when it comes to instruments, accessories, pro audio gear and more. Whether it’s from the big guys like Fender and Seymour Duncan or the lesser-known (but just as awesome) boutique brands such as Keeley and Lindy Fralin, we’ll help you find the right piece of gear for your setup. That’s why we like to take the time every week to spotlight one of our many partners. Today, we want to shine a light on one of our favorite manufacturers -- Coffin Cases. As the name implies, these guys are known for their high-quality coffin-shaped instrument cases which proved to be very popular. So popular, in fact, that they decided to expand their coffin-shaped lineup.

The Dark Line Series

Introducing the Dark Line series, coffin-shaped cases designed for smaller gear and accessories in our lives. Featuring a solidified multi-ply wood durable shell with a tough as nails scuff-proof black PVC exterior, these cases are built to last. Better yet, they are designed with steel corners, aluminum valance, and a lockable latch to ensure your contents are always safe at rest. Comfortably holds and protects your favorite things cushioned inside a velvet diamond-tuck quilted interior.

And these cases are more than just for guitar accessories as they can easily and safely hold anything from makeup, sunglasses and other small personal items to laptops, various tools, and even firearms on the larger models. Think of these as very cool-looking coffin-shaped briefcases and you get the idea!
