    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.
