Gewa Air

Gewa's Air cello case features a strong thermoplastic shell, and injected foam bonded to interior suspension lining. An aluminum strip runs down the face of the case for increased rigidity at bridge zone.

Bam HT Shamrock

Shamrock is Bam's least expensive HighTech.  While it has the 3-ply ABS shell, only the scratch-resistant front has the color while all backs are textured black.  The core is still foam, but generic instead of the Airex in the other models.  We show the Shamrock next to the NT for a comparison, since that case is so widely known.  Shamrock is 1 cm taller, lacks a shoulder handle, has an exterior mount pull handle on the wheeled model.  On the interior, since the case is slim front to back, the suspension pads are 1 cm thinner though just as dense.  On the lid, two pads rest against the cello face instead of the tailpiece.    Injected high-density foam pads are broad, and support the strongest parts of the cello at the neck block and bottom block. So shell + interior = better protection at lighter weight. Two bow holders, string pocket, neck strap and scroll loop with clasps complete the interior.  Rigid when standing, aligns and closes easily with 5 latches.    Interior fits most cellos up 37cm UB, 45cm LB, body length 80cm, total length 125cm.   **Fit issues may occur around C peg and at the waist if the distance between upper and lower corners is less than 6".  In stock:  Blue and Black without wheels.   With wheels:  White and Orangey.  Add $45 to for the wheeled model.

Bobelock Soft Bags fractional

Bobelock padded bags feature a water-resistant nylon cover with padded, adjustable shoulder straps.  There are three zippered compartments: 1 for bow, 1 for small accessories, 1 for music.   The dual-zippers open and close on either side of the endpin so the tip won't destroy the zipper over time.  Cellos of the same size vary in dimensions, so it helps if you know the length of your cello from the top of the scroll to the bottom edge of the wood, excluding the endpin assembly.  If it is up to 40", buy the 1/2 size ($110, black only at this time).  If it is over 40" and up to 44", buy the 3/4 size ($125, currently in stock in blue and burgundy).  1/4 and 1/8 are not in stock but can be ordered.

Bam interior pads

A six-pack of pads is available to customize fit in any cello hard case.  The pads are 3" x 4", covered in black fabric with an opening on one side to allow removal or addition of padding as needed.  Since the pads are backed with loopy velcro, to be used on a HighTech 4.4 Velcro track, they will not stick to the interior of your case unless you add the soft velcro yourself.  We include this, with industrial adhesive backing, with our set to make your life easier.

Bam High Tech 2.9 La Defense

La Defense features a stronger brushed aluminum-look 3-ply ABS shell over Airex foam core for superior impact resistance.  Dense foam pads suspend the cello at the neck and bottom blocks, where the cello is strongest structurally, affording the most protection at a weight of 8.2 lbs.  Fit guidelines suggest UB up to 38cm, LB to 46cm, body 78cm, total interior length 124 cm.  We will go over precise fit for your specific cello's dimensions.  Single side handle, two bow holders, set of backpack straps, weatherproof seal when all 5 latches are closed.  All 2.9 cases are slim, meaning contoured more closely to the cello.  Less volume also means less buffer zone between the cello and the outside world.  May cause fit issues with some neck angles which cause the scroll to rest on the back of the case instead of suspension.  Call for details on this case.

Tonareli Commuter

The Commuter cello case has a composite shell of carbon fiber, polycarb and aviation foam for strength, scratch resistance and light weight (10.5 pounds).  Foam pads suspend the cello under the strongest structural parts of the cello: neck and bottom blocks.  Interior adjustable side pads attach on velcro track for custom fit.  This case is a good fit for some short-pattern cellos (Guad) as the neck pad is movable, and the shape of the scroll compartment gives C peg clearance. There's a string pocket, 2 bow holders.  7 spring-loaded overcam latches provide a good seal.  One side handle, one shoulder handle, shoulder straps with safety wires.  BLACK, BLUE, WHITE
