The case comes with a detachable accessory pocket that will fit your rosin, endpin stop, and other smaller accessories.
Total suspension for the instrument (injected foam cushions)
2 bow holders
2 comfortable backpack straps with security screw hooks
Available in white, black or red
Weighs under 11 lbs
(Fiberglass Cello cases weigh approximately 13 lbs)
This is a very futuristic-looking cello case that seems to protect my cello very well. I haven't had any problems with the included pads - you just need to spend some time and figure out where to place them to best secure your cello (also be careful when taking the cello in and out because the pads may get pulled out). It weighs less than my former case, and doesn't seem to scratch easily. The included case straps are very comfortable, though I prefer to use the wheels!
The Case is not a very good one. It does not fully protect the sides of the cello because the padding on the sides do not stay in place and not enough in the case to fully protect a Cello. Super heavy. The straps and handles are not very balanced.
