Bow case (2 bows) Core
Two-bow case is padded black canvas over wood shell. It closes with dual zippers, has a web carry handle as well as an adjustable shoulder strap. Velour lined interior has vertical slots, pressure-padded lid. Weight just under 2 lbs. Length 31″, width 2 1/2″, depth 2 1/2″. Fits cello/viola/violin bows up to 29 1/2″ long.
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 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).
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.
CrossRock PC Advanced
CrossRock’s PC Advanced model is polycarbon + carbon fiber, light at 10 lbs, and has wheels. The pulling handle is a detachable strap, and there is a shoulder handle in addition to the side handle. Note there is no top pad that holds the half-round at the back of the case, so this will accommodate broad or sloping shoulders. The interior has 8 adjustable/removable pads to customize fit. There’s an accessory pocket plus a zippered pocket for a small amount of music. Backback straps are included . Overall interior length 135 cm, Upper bouts 38 cm, Lower bouts 48 cm, Back to bridge depth 28.5 cm
