Viola cases are one of the hardest cases to shop for when it comes to orchestral instrument cases! Unlike violins and cellos, they don’t always come in set sizes. Some could have wider lower bouts, and some could be a little shorter.
Plus there aren’t as many options when it comes to buying viola cases compared to violin cases. Which is quite unfortunate! We often have violists asking us about the newest violin cases, and when that specific model will be available for violas.
The truth is, case makers largely focus on violin and cello cases because there are more customers! Which is why more time and energy is spent on creating newer models for violins and cellos.
But worry not! In this viola case buyer's guide will help you understand how to find a best selling viola case, which key features to keep in mind, and what to look out for when shopping online.
