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.
Bam Classic wheels
In stock: Black and Light Grey at the price of $907.
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. Other colors arriving will be at the price of $961.
Bam Performance Case (soft)
This is a densely-padded nylon bag with a water repellent polyurethane coating. The interior is velvet over foam padding for some thermal as well as shock protection. There is leather padding over the vulnerable bridge zone, and leather handles. The usual accessory pockets for rosin/rockstop and sheet music are present, and the bow pocket is rigidized and includes two padded sleeves. The zipper does not stop at the C peg, but wraps around the top of the scroll to the A peg, so the bag can open flat. Weight 6.5 pounds. If cello length exceeds 48″ (122 mm), endpin may protrude a bit – depends on fitting and tip. We have fit Montagnana with lower bouts 18.25″ (460 mm)
Mirage Polycarb Wide (wheels)
This model case weighs 10.5 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: Black
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.
Orders are placed by phone (518-527-5789) or (email).
