    Top Double Violin Cases

    Here at Great Violin Cases, we understand that finding a good double violin case may be difficult, because there’s not that much information on them!

    Unlike violin cases, there aren’t that many blogs or articles comparing and reviewing the different double violin case options out there.

    And finding a double violin case at your local store may prove challenging as well.

    Afterall, music stores are limited on space, and there’s a lot more violinists looking for standard violin cases than double cases.

    Which is exactly why we see the need to write this article! Choosing a good double case is important. You are, after all, protecting two instruments instead of one.

    We’ll go over some of the best double violin cases we have on our site.

    And where are we getting our information you ask? From our customers! We’ve sold enough double cases to know which ones have been the most popular.

    And just to make sure we’re all on the same page, we’re referring to cases that can fit two violins, NOT a violin and a viola. We’ll probably do a separate article on those cases in the near future.

    The Top 5 Double Violin Cases

    • Incredibly protective and sturdy wooden cases.
    • Temperature-resistant shells.
    • Beautiful velvet interiors. Several colors to choose from.

    • One of the most affordable cases for the quality you get.
    • Large zippered compartment for sheet music.
    • Has a hygrometer.

    Our pet peeves:

    • This case is a bit on the heavier side. Weighing about 8.5 lbs. Most double cases weigh about 7.5 to 8 lbs.

    If you want the best protection for your priceless violins, go with a Bam Hightech or Gewa IDEA case. However, avoid the GEWA case if you live in an environment that can be dangerously hot or cold.
