I’d recently come across a Blockbuster case for my VB that has its foam in top-notch condition. I was wondering if there was any particular way that I could happily use this with/for my VB without horribly wearing down the foam on the inside of the case.
From what I can tell, the foam only gets drastically damaged if it is exposed to water over time. But there’s still a lot I don’t know, I don’t want to end up ruining it, and I’m curious if anyone here has any tips on avoiding wear.
The weight on the VB damages it when you use it as intended (my case has got worse over the years of use by me with just storing a VB in it upright, I started laying it flat all the time). The only way would be to never use it.
If you actually want to use the case for storage, I would look into either keeping the case you have as a collector’s item and not using it, while getting a second case to actually use; or take the foam out, put it in a trash bag (labeled, of course) for protection, and look into making your own foam inserts that you can [relatively] easily replace.
