Are You in the Market for a New String Instrument Case?

Are You in the Market for a New String Instrument Case?

Time to upgrade your case? Cases come in all different shapes, sizes and colours! If your current case is missing a handle, or your best friend needs a new home, it might be time to consider upgrading to a new case. Simply for Strings offers wide range of cases and case accessories for violin, viola, cello and double bass.

While there are options available for every player, the real question is: How do I know which case is for me?

While it is important that we love the way our case looks (who doesn't want to have the most beautiful case in the orchestra?), there are 3 additional, key factors that you need to consider before making your choice. These factors are weight, price and durability. 

At Simply for Strings, we are big believers in buying based on what you value most. In an ideal world, there would be a case that combines all 3 of these factors to make the perfect, light, protective and majorly cost effective case. While some of the cases we sell come pretty close, we are of the belief that you usually can't have all 3. Working out what you prioritise in a case is the most important step of the process. 

For example, the Gewa Bio Oblong Case with Sheet Music Pocket is a great price, and quite lightweight for a case of its shape. With a sheet music pocket attached to the side and copious amounts of space for accessories inside the case, this is the ideal case for someone who is spending a lot of time driving between rehearsals and lessons. For a cellist looking for a case with similar qualities, we would recommend the Hard Cello Bag with Wheels (although we wouldn't recommend going off-road with something this weighty!).

If your priorities lie in protecting your case while maintaining a lower pricetag, something like the ABS Cello Case with Wheels is an absolute go-to. Although this case is one of the heavier ones in our range, you cannot beat the sturdy exterior and cushy interiors at this price range. Some Violin/Viola alternatives would be either the VIVO, RAAN or HQ Polycarbonate options, both sturdy and cost-effective but a little heavier than the rest of our range.

And if price isn't a concern, you cannot go past the extensive range of GEWA, Musilia and BAM cases we have on offer. At the higher end of the price tiers, you are given a variety of choices in weights, shapes, finishes and most importantly; you can guarantee that the seals on these hard shell cases are made to protect your instrument through rain, hail or shine. There are options for all kinds of musicians travelling and playing in all types of places, but our top sellers are usually the Gewa Air Violin Cases or Musilia Cello Cases.

For the Double Bass players: firstly, is your back okay? We know there aren't a lot of options for you when it comes to pretty cases, but we would recommend the Gewa Premium Double Bass Gig Bag for something that isn't too bulky, but provides that bit of extra protection that you might need when traipsing between genres. 

Now that you have an idea of what you're looking for, all that's left to do is shop, shop, shop! If you are shopping online, be assured that all of our cases and case accessories ship in a secure and well-packed box for safe arrival to you. Our friendly team are always available to answer any of your questions.
