Description

The unique carrying system allows the user to choose a range of carrying options from a simple strap to a complete backpack that incorporates comfortable back padding and a music holder (the backpack attachment is an optional accessory).

The internal padding can also be customised to suit individual cellos – either by turning a reciprocal two-way screw to provide base support or by moving velcro-attached interior cushions.

Looking for an ultralight cello case with strength, durability, and the ability to accommodate a seated cellist’s posture needs?

Musilia’s new carbon-fiber cello cases were designed by a professional cellist from a family of cellists, and seem to have addressed all the familiar issues: weight, safety, nonstandard dimensions, ease of carrying, and even the irritating noise of rattling hardware.

The no-frills interior sports a unique suspension system that adjusts easily to fit any full- or near-full-sized instrument. A foam block at the upper end holds the cello button firmly in place with the neck suspended in air. A cross bar keeps the case rigid at the neck. The lower bouts are suspended on foam pads mounted on carbon-fiber springs, each adjustable by a two-way screw for a custom fit.

The case holds two bows. Latches, handles, and simplified strap hardware are all designed to reduce noise. A classy touch.

Since so many accidents involve torn straps or the hardware used to secure them, Musilia has devised a system with a single nylon strap and simple plastic strap adjusters. Several smooth-edged strap-holder inserts are inset into the case to reduce snagging, and reinforced with layers of carbon fiber for strength. The strap can be rigged in various backpack or over- the-shoulder configurations to suit the player.

Please note that the back pack cushion is an optional extra and does not come as standard, currently priced at $230.00.
