Answer: it’s probably not a real carbon fiber case, so no.
Another issue with carbon fiber cases is all the copycat cases out there. Go on Amazon, and you might find carbon fiber violin cases as low as $129!
The price may be attractive, but we can guarantee that the case will NOT protect your violin.
And here’s why:
Carbon fiber protection is an expensive process. Companies have to mass produce large amounts of carbon fiber cases to recoup the cost of getting the entire process set up in the first place.
A $200 case will not cover this expensive process. So how do companies sell a carbon fiber violin case for $200?
By using cheap craftsmanship and thinner carbon fiber sheets. Sure you’ll still get a lightweight case. But you’ll be sacrificing strength, protection, and durability.
Not to mention the cheap hardware used to lower the cost of the case, such as locks and hinges.
