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.
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 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.
Tonareli’s polycarbonate composite cases weigh 10.5 lbs and have a three-ply construction. The outside shell is a polycarb skin, the middle is high-density foam, and the inside is polyester fabric. The lower pads are fixed while the pad at the neck is adjustable on Velcro to custom fit the length of the cello Two additional pads can be placed as needed to prevent lateral movement at the upper or lower bouts. Two bow holders close with zippers. They do not accommodate longer Arcus bows. The Titanium family has its own colors (Sapphire shown), and the Special Edition Graphite has its own color options (Red Graphite shown). Total length from top of scroll to tip of endpin 51″. Upper bouts max 14.5″, Lower bouts 17.5″ GUIDELINES! Widest part of cello may not fall at the widest part of the case. Cellos with back length less than 29″ will not reach the edge of the bottom suspension pad. Wheels are not an option.
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. Orangey in stock $1480. All cases coming in will be at the new price
