 I was wondering if anyone had any experience with double violin cases, as well as traveling with them. I am gonna be moving soon and i have 2 violins. I don't really wanna ship my seldom used one as i still love it even if i don't play it much these days, and it could come in handy as i'll be living in close quarters for a while and it's much quieter. I'm debating buying a double violin case. Since i do have to fly has anyone ever gone through the airport with one? 

I've taken my single violin case without a single problem many times but obviously the double would be much bigger i think. oh the conundrums of moving! ah hahahaha oh well. it is fun to go though all the things i've managed to accumulate! 

Lead me, Follow me, or get out of my way!

I've used one on a few occasions and managed to bring it on a plane. I think it's up to the discretion of the airline and crew to decide. They are obviously wider than regular oblong cases. :(
You'll probably be fine though.
