Disclaimer: All Tonareli shaped fiberglass violin cases now feature movable bottom cushions. This cushion is secured to the case by velcro pads. Which means this case can accommodate 3/4 and 4/4 size violins. The bow holders are swivel bow holders. And the blanket is now a solid blanket. Please watch our video description of the newest Tonareli cases with the most updated features.
The Tonareli shaped fiberglass violin case is the most popular student fiberglass case out there. It only weighs 5 lbs., and it has space under the instrument for shoulder rest and accessories. It also comes with 2 shoulder straps, and an instrument blanket. The seal is water-resistant, making the case great against inclement weather.
"It seems to do a great job protecting my instrument from rain and bumps (it seems to absorb shock well)."
I love my Tonareli. It's just adorable and fits both bows, my shoulder rest, and extra materials. It's sturdy and I like how it can stand up on its own. I travel around with my violin so I am relieved knowing my violin is safe--plus, I feel super stylish using it as a backpack!
I love this case! Its light, petite, durable and super convenient to carry around. Im giving this 4 stars only because this was not the color I expecting...it reminded me a bit of hospital walls or cafeteria walls...I thought it would be a
gray/blue kinda thing. Its just not what I was expecting. Luckily, thet are letting me exchange it for a different color :)
My daughter wanted a new case, but since she was in a 3/4 size violin, I hesitated to purchase one. Then, I found out that this case is adjustable to accommodate a full size also. It is heavy duty and has adjustable straps. It seems very protective. The only negative is the it already has a black scuff and I don't recall where that came from. I hope it is not easily scuffed.
