The Zip Case

Haga click aqui para información en Español.

Year after year we see so many cellos come to our shop with broken necks that we have been looking for a cost-efficient case to provide some protection when kids are riding the school bus, going to festivals, even just walking through crowded school hallways. At $195.00 the Zip case costs only a little more than a good-quality, soft cover, and a whole lot less than the cost of a broken neck or a totaled cello.

The Zip case is light-weight, only 9 lbs. It has wheels and an optional back-pack strap.  We have had it upgraded with an industrial-strength zipper, made by the Japanese company YKK. The case is covered in a tear resistant, woven nylon which comes in a choice of five colors: black, blue, red, silver, and brown. The body is of molded, stiff rubber, laminated with rigid foam, lined with a soft black velvetine fabric to protect the cello's finish from scratches.  These great cases are only available in full and 3/4 sizes at this time.

Other features include a combination lock for the zipper tabs, three comfortable handles, heavy-duty hinges, and a portal for the endpin.  Look for pictures of the colors and features below.
