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 Latch replacement
Bam latches can be replaced, but you need to know which style you have on your case. See pictures in the gallery. Each latch comes with rivets and washers, as well as replacement soft velcro to cover hardware inside. Let me add this: You can help your latches have a long life if, after closing your case, you fasten the side latch under or nearest the handle first. If this latches easily, your case is likely aligned all the way around and the others should also latch easily. If you latch the top first and there is a problem with alignment that you don’t know about, latches will be stressed as you attempt to close the others around the case. Don’t force it; find the problem. OK, now look at your case and see which of these three you need.
#1 New style “soft touch” latches in black that say [bam] on them
#2 Old style silver latches with keyhole for cases with aluminum coloring front and/or back
#3 Old style latches in black. Your latches may have keyholes, but available replacements do not
Depending on date of purchase of the case, some latches will be replaced at no cost if you bought your case here. Since any dealer who orders and sells Bam cases can also order latches, go there first and maybe there will also be no cost. They are for sale here, though.
Bam Newtech with Wheels
NewTech with Wheels – In stock: Mint, Terra Cotta
Every Bam cello case has broad, dense suspension pads supporting your cello under its strongest structural parts: the 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.
Bam Slim 2nd choice
On rare occasion a Bam case comes out of production with a cosmetic flaw. This one has tiny bubbles on a section the shell that are invisible from some angles, look like droplets from another.

The top pad is on Velcro so you can adjust to custom fit the cello’s back length. The core of the case is foam sandwiched between ABS for a lot of protection. 2 shoulder straps included.
