Top 5 ways to use your MONO cases during Quarantine

A great guitar case always comes in handy — even when you’re not on the road.

In addition to keeping your instruments safe, our community of users have shared some ingenious ways of integrating instrument cases into your daily lives.

Here are some of our favorite alternative ways to use your MONO cases and bags while you’re home. 

Kids-size loungers

The faux-fur lining on the interior of our cases doesn’t just keep your guitar snug. They also make for cushy kids-size lounging.

“MONO cases are the standard when it comes to protecting your guitars and also perfect for lounging.” — Brandon Witcher

Coincidentally, our hi-density foam bumpers also make sure the baby stays in place.

Disclaimer: We don’t actually recommend using our cases as baby cribs — but it makes for a great photo!

Diaper Bags

Not strictly an instrument case, but we’ve received word that our Stealth Relay Messenger Bag makes quite the diaper bag.
