Shamrock is part of the HighTech series, and an excellent choice for a light-weight, protective case at 8 pounds. As part of Bam’s HT series, it has a 3-ply ABS shell over a foam core, but generic instead of Airex foam as in the other HT models. The scratch-resistant lids come in 4 colors with textured black backs. Only the black is completely textured. Injected high-density foam pads are broad, and support the strongest parts of the cello at the neck and bottom blocks. Standard 2 bow holders, string pocket, shoulder straps. Rigid when standing, aligns and closes easily with 5 latches. The interior is generous 37cm UB, 45cm LB, body length 80cm, total length 125cm but fit issues may occur at the center bouts and the C peg due to the tapering of the case.
While Gewa Air fits many 4/4 cellos, it has adjustable features that make it ideal for short-pattern cellos like Guadagnini or 7/8 cellos. The shell is constructed of two strong thermoplastic layers with injected foam bonded to interior suspension lining. This design makes it tortionally strong, more puncture resistant, and affords thermal protection. An aluminum strip runs down the face of the case for increased rigidity at bridge zone. The interior features an adjustable sling to customize fit. It also may fit some extra-long cellos because of the flexible configuration of pads in the shoulder/neck region. Guideline dimensions are 14.5″ UB, 18″ LB, total length 51.5″ but fit requires more details so contact us. Five latches, one with an integrated combination lock. Leather handles. Weight ~9 lbs In stock Black/blue. Backpack with music pocket (rucksack) is available for this case.
Bam Classic wheels
Just add wheels and an external-mounted pulling handle onto the description of Bam’s CLASSIC case. All other features are identical. As long as you are wheeling on smooth hard surfaces, or moving at a pace that doesn’t make the arm pulling the case bounce all over the place, the superior suspension system will handle the vibration and protect your cello. Remember the handle on the scroll compartment is for wheeling, not lifting. Weight 12 pounds. Silver, Black, Poppy with black interior
Bam Shamrock wheels
This model adds wheels and a pulling handle onto the standard Shamrock, so be sure to look at that listing for more details and dimensions. Color options and all features are the same. The popularity of this case — if your cello fits — is its weight 8.5 pounds WITH WHEELS! Again, the density and size of the suspension pads afford protection from vibration when wheeling on most surfaces. If your arm is bouncing all over the place as you walk, either slow down, get a smoother surface, or put the case on your back. Common sense rules.
Bam Newtech wheels
Bam’s redesigned NewTech is now part of the HighTech family because the shell is now 3-ply, and the Airex foam skeleton has been replaced with a full foam core. New style latches and D-rings complete the changes. Interior remains the same, exterior color options are still Blue, Black, Mint and Terra Cotta. Wheels are 8 1/4″ apart, wheeling handle is integrated and is not for lifting. Given the density of the interior pads and the overall shock-absorbing naterials of the shell, wheeling should cause no problems for the cello. Common sense rules. Weight with wheels 12.6 lbs.
Bam Hightech Adjustable
BAM HIGH TECH 4.4 is a large case with an adjustable interior to fit most 4/4 cellos up to 39cm UB, 48 cm LB, body length 79 cm, total length 126 cm. It is the go-to case for many Goffrillers and Montagnanas. Shell is 3-ply ABS over an Airex foam core and provides superior thermal and shock resistance. Easily closes with 5 latches for a weathertight seal. Dense foam suspension pads support the neck and bottom blocks. The pad at the neck block is on a velcro track and can be moved to fit the body length, keeping track of the C peg’s proximity to the case edge. Additional velcro-back pads are included to customize fit. This case is identifiable by the soft patch over the bridge, and loop handle on the back. Weight 4.4kg (9.8 lbs) Available in black carbon look.
Bam Hightech Compact
HIGHTECH COMPACT weighs 7.75 lbs (3.5 kg), fits most cellos up to 14.25″ UB, 17.5″LB. The widest part of a cello does not always fall at the widest part of the case as contours vary. A strong 3-ply ABS shell over an Airex foam core provides superior thermal and impact protection. Unlike the Slim 2.9, this has more depth, providing greater buffer zone between the cello and the outside world. No worries with the angle of the neck causing the scroll to touch the back of the case. The interior has broad, dense foam suspension pads under the neck and bottom blocks — the strongest structural parts of the cello — and has the standard interior 2 holders, string pocket, shoulder straps. Tweed, Black Lazure
Bam High Tech Slim
We have one Bam HighTech Slim Orangey which has slight bubbling of the finish and qualifies as a second choice, and this is offered at the sale price. In no way is the integrity of the case compromised. Now on to the description of the Slim! It is sculpted closely to the contours of the cello, providing a compact ultralight cello case . Protection is excellent with a thermal and shock-resistant Airex core beneath its strong ABS shell. Weight is 2.9kg (just over 6 lbs). Dense, broad foam cushions suspend the cello at its bottom and neck block. The buffer zone between cello and outside world is reduced, so take your specific usage into consideration before buying. Standard 2 bow holders, a string pocket, shoulder straps, etc. The neck and scroll strap fasten with a clasp. UB 14.25″, LB 17.5″ It is also advised to check the cello laying down to see whether the neck/scroll angle is too extreme to fit without resting on the scroll compartment. The regular price is in effect for other colors, just this special Orangey is on sale.
Bam HighTech Slim Supreme
This is the strongest Hightech case, constructed with a 3-ply shell of polycarbonate with foam core and additional ABS layer. It weighs 3.6 kg (~8 lbs), and is sculpted close to the cello. It aligns and closes easily with only 5 latches. This type of plastic is harder to mold, harder to break, and less likely to distort or warp in heat than other cases. The suspension pad for the bottom block is fixed, broad, and supports under the back and bottom rib. The upper pad is on a velcro track. Position it snugly against the shoulders to prevent your cello from shifting. The cello shown is a great fit for this case, good clearance at the corners and the C peg, all cello edges have safe distance from shell. Contours plus dimensions matter, so have your cello’s handy – metric measurements are a help. Supreme in Black or Ice.
Bam straps (set of 2) are padded, non-slip, comfortable, adjustable, and safe with high-quality carabiners. Straps are included with every new Bam case but can be purchased and used on any case with D-rings. *Note if your height is 5’5″ or under, you may want to order the SHORT set which will allow the case to rest a bit higher on your back. The straps are the same length, but the shoulder cushion is 3″ shorter. Straps should be attached at the upper D ring with the flat sides touching (see diagram).
Bam Flight Cover
Bam’s Flight cover is used in conjunction with your own 4/4 Bam cello case to increase protection when you have to check your cello with baggage for flight. It’s constructed of a shock-absorbing elastomer ABS shell over 2″ of high-density polyurethane foam. When you arrive at your destination, unzip and remove the flight cover and you have your own case for everyday use. Exterior dimensions are 137x53x43cm, interior 138×53.5x35cm. 9.1kg The cover has integrated wheels with soft grip handle at the base of the neck for easy rolling. Bam’s flight cover fits all Bam case models. It’s a snug fit so put the scroll end in first, then press the lower bouts into place. Dual zippers meet at the center bouts. Expensive to ship due to oversize surcharge. Special order.
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).
