    Bobelock Violin Case Reviews

    Bobelock Violin Cases

    Bobelock is a name that has been around since 1901. And the fact that most orchestral musicians still know and trust this name in 2022 says a lot of the Bobelock cases.

    Bobelock is the leading brand in making protective, durable, affordable best selling violin cases that students and professional musicians love.

    In this article, we’ll be looking at some of the best selling Bobelock violin cases, along with some video reviews.

    We’ll also be looking at the different types of Bobelock cases, and the unique features and benefits of each case.

    By the end of this article, you’ll have a clear understanding of which Bobelock case is right for you!

    Even though this article is primarily focused on violin cases, many of the features and benefits apply to the Bobelock viola and cello cases as well. Since they often use the same protective materials.

    What Are Bobelock Cases Made Of?

    There are 2 types of Bobelock cases: wooden and fiberglass.

    Bobelock Wooden Cases

    These cases are made of 5-layered plywood shells. The extra layers gives the case extra strength and protection.

    Wood is also a temperature-resistant material. It doesn’t absorb heat like metallic carbon fiber cases do.

    These wooden cases also feature water-resistant covers that are screwed into the cases.

    Bobelock Fiberglass Cases

    These cases are made of tough and durable fiberglass shells. Fiberglass is stronger and more protective than the wooden cases.

    They also come in an assortment of fun colors.

    Every fiberglass case comes with a travel cover as well. This cover protects your case from scratches and spills. And you can use the zippered pouches on the covers for sheet music.

    What Are The Interiors Made Of?

    Bobelock cases come in 2 interior options: velour or velvet.

    Velvet is a luxurious-feeling material that makes the interior of the case look elegant.

    Velour is a more affordable material that you’ll find in most of Bobelock’s student cases. This allows parents to get an affordable case without sacrificing protection.

    Both velvet and velour interiors come in several color options.

    Bobelock is also one of the only brands you’ll find with several interior colors besides black!

    What Is Suspension?

    Bobelock cases also come with or without suspension.

    Suspension is the extra padding that secures the most vulnerable parts of the instrument.

    Suspension also protects your instrument from banging against the case itself.

    For example, if you drop your case, the suspension padding will absorb the shock of the case hitting against the ground. So your instrument doesn’t knock against the inside of the case.

    How do you know if a case has suspension padding? Check out the photo below. You’ll see noticeable paddings within the case.
