There’s a lot to consider when it comes to purchasing the best cello case.
And here atGreat Violin Cases, we would say it’s even more challenging to findthe perfect cello case that’ll suit your needs compared to finding a great violin case (pun intended).
With violin cases, there’s generally a lot more options. You get a variety of materials to choose from. And the weight of these cases are usually between 3 - 8 lb.
Cello cases however, can range between 5 - 18 lb. The instrument itself is already quite heavy, so ideallyyou’re looking for a lighter case.
However, the lighter you go, the more expensive it gets. So your options are more limited depending on your budget.
Plus with heavier cases, you generally want to have wheels. But depending on where you live, you might be wheeling the case through dirty streets, uneven pavement, mud, etc.
