This hard-shell case is gorgeous! Constructed from a foam injected polycarbonate shell, this case is both durable and lightweight (5 lbs. to be exact). It includes high quality metal latches, a durable protective weatherstrip, and ultra-padded backpack straps for comfort. The detachable pocket on the back holds a laptop or iPad and has dividers for sheet music and notes. There’s also a subway strap for carrying options. Open the case to see the fiddle and two bows snuggly held in place by magnetic holders and rosin compartments and a shoulder rest holder below. This soft, padded, protective case is elegant and optimal for protection and portability.
