Gewa has been one of the top brands among orchestral musicians for decades.
These German-engineered cases are known for their durability, protection, and craftsmanship.
Gewa is actually most famous for their Gewa Air violin cases. Which are incredibly light and protective professional cases.
However, Gewa wanted to create a more affordable option, which is why they developed the Gewa Pure violin cases.
These cases are made of polycarbonate shells. Polycarbonate is one of the strongest plastics out there.
Now when we first saw this, we were thinking to ourselves, plastic… really?
But after some research, we realized that polycarbonate is also used to make shatterproof glass!
Polycarbonate is also more scratch-resistant compared to many hard cases out there.
These Gewa Pure full-size violin cases come in two shapes: shaped and oblong.
The shaped option is great for traveling musicians who are looking for light and compact cases.
The oblong case is spacious and can fit large shoulder rests.
We really like the backpack straps on this one too. It’s positioned right behind the zippered sheet music pouch. So it provides a good padding for your back as well.
Lastly, the textured surface is absolutely beautiful!
The Supreme cases are also polycarbonate cases. But the manufacturing process of these cases make them stronger and more protective than the Gewa Pure violin cases.
Because these cases are made of plastic, they’re much more temperature-resistant compared to metallic cases, such as carbon fiber.
But they’re as sturdy and light as carbon fiber. They’re also scratch-resistant.
The shape of the case itself is very unique.
The key locks are polycarbonate locks. They’re designed to be extremely durable. So you don’t have to worry about your latches wearing out over time.
You also have the option to get the BAM insulated case covers, if you’re in real cold climates.

These Pedi cases are one of the lightest cases of 2020. They’re made of reinforced aluminum alloy. And they come in 5 colors.
They’re quite functional. They feature reflective strips along the edges of the case. So they can reflect car lights at night.
The exterior canvas is water-resistant. Even the zipper tracks feature a layer of water-resistant covers. So you don’t have to worry about rainwater seeping in.
These shaped cases are one of the very few violin cases out there that also has space for sheet music.
And it has a quality suspension system. So if you drop the case, the suspension absorbs the shock, not your instrument!

Tonareli has been making cool and colorful fiberglass violin cases for years.
They’re the most popular violin cases among students.
However, Tonareli wanted to make an even stronger case with its popular cello-shaped violin case exterior design.
And they’ve done just that with the Tonareli titanium violin case! The shell is actually made of 4 different materials.
The seal on this case is airtight. Which makes it more weather-resistant.
The interior features a removable accessories pouch.
It’s also adjustable to fit ¾ size violins and 4/4 size violins.
And you have the option to get the insulated case covers as well for cold weathers.
- Price: $187 - $321
- Shapes: oblong
- Weight: 6.8 - 7.5 lb.
These are perhaps the most functional cases of 2020!
They feature several accessories pouches on the top. There are 2 separate zippered compartments for sheet music.
One of the cases is designed to only fit the violin. A bow tube is attached separately.
This is for violinists who need a case that can meet airline carry-on regulations.
The bow itself does exceed the longest length of carry-on regulations, that is why it can be placed in the bow tube.
So that the bow tube can be checked in, and not the instrument.
And the ergonomically-designed backsides of these cases feature attached backpack straps. So you can carry these backpack violin cases with more comfort.
These Peak Performance cases are definitely designed for adventurous violinists on-the-go!
- Price: $144 - $154
- Shapes: oblong

Last but not least, are the Gewa Bio-S violin cases.
Now these cases have been around for the past 2 years, but they’ve definitely been growing in popularity in the recent months.
And with it being 2020, we have to feature at least one environmentally-friendly violin case!
These cases are made of flax shells, which are water-resistant fabrics.
They come in two colors: brown and gray. And we really like the exterior texture. They’re one of the more unique-looking cases out there.
Violinists choose these cases because they’re simple, stylish, durable, and affordable!
