This section includes cases/covers for cellos and bows. Measure your cello, set your budget, and evaluate how rigorous your usage is. We’ll happily explain factors you might not have considered..

  • Bam Ergonomic Backpack

    For longer hikes when you want more of a harness than just shoulder straps.  Keep in mind that when not being carried on the back, the case will be back-heavy and also not lay flat if that matters to you.  Petite cellists to have more fit issues than taller ones, though I can’t give you the cut-off point.

  • Bam HighTech l’Etoile

    This case is part of the HighTech series, so it’s light-weight and very protective with its ABS shell, Airex foam core, and suspension pads that are broad and dense.  It has the same dimensions as the Slim model, but the leather front makes it a little heavier — ~9 lbs with both shoulder straps.   Available in 9 colors, they are usually made to order.  The current wait time is about 5-6 months.

  • Bam Newtech with Wheels

    NewTech with Wheels  has broad, dense suspension pads supporting your cello under its strongest structural parts: neck and bottom blocks.  Coupled with the ABS  shell and injected foam core, it provides protection from vibration for safe wheeling — though common sense rules!  Wheels  are 8 1/4″ apart, and the wheeling handle is integrated into the back of the scroll compartment.   As cellos can vary in contour and proportions — especially the corners at the C bouts —  we will confirm that your cello is a good fit for this case.  See some case studies in the gallery to get an idea of what will fit in this case.  Shoulder straps are included, comfy neoprene with secure carabiners.  Weight with wheels 12 lbs 11 oz.

  • Gewa Air Rucksack & Music Pocket

    Designed specifically for the Gewa Air case with two D-rings at the neck and two at the lower bouts.  The music pocket is padded, breathable material.  Straps are padded and adjustable.  System easily detaches.   Look at our gallery photo to compare the D-ring placement on the Air and the Pure case, in case you wonder if you can use this on either case.

  • Gewa Idea Futura

    Gewa’s case models vary in dimensions and weight, and this one is ~ 10.5 lbs, fits upper bouts to 36 cm (14 3/8″), lower bouts to 45 cm (17 3/4″), and depth at bridge of 28 cm (11″), total interior length of 129 cm (50 3/4″).  Your cello is suspended on a raised perimeter platform, and the neck strap fastens with a buckle.  Two bow holders have magnetic closures.   This fiberglass shell has handles at the side and shoulder, features 4 latches — none on the hinged side — and comes with two shoulder straps.  The flared top fits over the rolled-edge back, and is not a tongue-in-groove seal.

  • Gewa Pure with Wheels

    Please read the entry for Gewa Pure polycarbonate case to see more images and details.  The only differences between the two cases are addition of wheels and a wheeling handle making it slightly heavier at ~ 10.5 lbs.  Interior features, construct and shell are identical to the case without wheels.  If you have a short-pattern cello or a cello with shoulders that don’t fit well in fixed suspension padding, contact me to discuss your cello in this case.  These pads are more adjustable than you expect.  In stock:  Red, White

  • Mirage Polycarb Wide

    This model case weighs 10 pounds, has a very strong shell, wheels, and most important a generous interior to fit some cellos with bouts or corners too wide for other cases in this price range.  There are 4 thick and 4 thin removable pads that run on a velcro track to adjust fit for a variety of cellos,  The tongue-in-groove seal closes with 6 latches.   The side and shoulder handles are roomy which is important for some cold-weather glove-wearing cellists.  See the photo gallery to see how your cello’s dimensions compare with this cello which is a very good fit for this case, when it did not fit in a variety of others here.  In stock:  Blue, Black

  • Stevenson Flight Case

    Made in U.K. by Alan Stevenson, this previously-owned fiberglass flight case takes the place of your own case when travel involves a baggage compartment where you can’t control the environment.  Weight ~ 20 lbs, steel reinforced bridge area, removable skateboard wheels which attach on the side instead of the back.  Interior is not plushy lined, but outfitted with thick, dense pads for full suspension.   Prefer pick-up at the shop if possible.

  • Bow Case (2 bows) Pedi

    Pedi tubular bow case holds two cello bows (or viola/violin), zips closed. The adjustable shoulder carry strap can be tightened flat to the exterior. Rigid, well padded, with luggage tag attached, it’s a reliable way to travel or fly with your bows.   Total length is 31″ but we did some specific measuring which you can see in our gallery photo.    Available in black with brown contrasting trim, or brown with black trim.

  • Bobelock Soft Padded Bag

    Bobelock’s popular cello bag has a nylon canvas cover that resists water, and 1″ thick foam padding protects the cello from everyday bumps. There’s a music pocket on the back, accessory pocket and padded bow compartment on the front, and comfy adjustable backpack straps (not removable). Dual zippers meet on either side of the endpin to prevent sharp tips from damaging the zipper.

    The 4/4 size bag ($140) also fits 7/8 size cellos.   In stock in Black, Tan
    The 3/4 size bag ($120)  maximum length 44″ In stock in blue, burgundy, black

  • Gewa Pure

    Gewa Pure weighs ~ 10 pounds. 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.  Neck strap fastens with clasp, and there is no scroll loop.  The two bow holders have magnetic closures.    The interior is generous and there are 8 pads that can be placed along a velcro track (or removed) to achieve a custom fit.  Lay your cello in the case with all non-fixed pads removed so you can check corners and clearances.  Add pads where needed to prevent lateral and vertical movement.   See pics of our “case studies.”   Know your total length, back length, upper and lower bouts for starters.  Colors:  Black, Gray, Red, White.  Black interior only.
