Cases

This section includes cases/covers for cellos and bows.  Measure your cello, set your budget, and let us explain the factors that should contribute to your final decision. 

Gewa Pure

Gewa Pure weighs ~ 10 pounds and is the least-expensive hard shell case we currently offer.  It has a rigid polycarb shell, 6 spring-loaded latches and 1 combination lock latch.  It has a side handle, shoulder handle, and two shoulder straps attach with 2 D-rings at the neck and D-rings above the lower bouts.  The interior is generous and will fit a broader range of cellos, so we'll double check your dimensions if you're interested in this case.  There are 8 pads that can be placed along a velcro track (or removed) to achieve a custom fit.  We have short-pattern 4/4 Guad patterns as well as some 7/8 cellos that fit nicely in this case when pads are optimally placed.  The neck strap fastens with a plastic clasp, and bow holders have magnetic closures.   Length of cello, excluding endpin, should be no more than 48", allowing 3" for the endpin.  Upper bouts up to 15" max, lower bouts up to 18" max.  Red is in stock, availability of colors subject to change

Bam Classic W

Bam's CLASSIC has a textured single-ply ABS shell which is strong and shock-resistant, though it has some flexibility when open.  It closes with 8 locking latches.  Injected foam suspension cushions are thick, broad, and support the neck block and bottom blocks which are the strongest structural part of the cello.  These same cushions create a safer wheeling experience when rolling over smooth surfaces like hallways and many paved surfaces.  The integrated handle on the scroll compartment is for wheeling, not lifting.   The generous interior fits most cellos and you can use this photo as a guide.  The photo distorts a bit, and this cello does fit well in the case.  The interior features a music pocket, string pocket, neck strap and scroll loop with clasp, 2 velcro bow holders.  Includes 2 padded non-slip shoulder straps.  2-year limited warranty   12 pounds.  Silver grey in stock.

Bam HT Shamrock

Shamrock is Bam's least expensive HighTech, and lightest weight case available with wheels (or without)!!  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 HT 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".    Add $45 to for the wheeled model.

Gewa's Air cello case features a strong thermoplastic shell, and injected foam bonded to interior suspension lining.

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, either with glue gun or using adhesive-backed Velcro (brand).
