Bam 1001S Light Grey Classic Cello Case
Bam France has had a long reputation for making the most beautiful, elegant, and strongest cases for musicians all over the world. They have been the preferred choice by professional string musicians because of it's unique protective features. It's suspension and anti-shock technologies, combined with it's modern and sleek French designs, have given Bam France a very respected reputation among string players around the world.
The 1001S Classic cello cases are largely responsible for Bam's amazing reputation. It's beautiful exterior design is simple and elegant. The inside features a pocket for sheet music, a pocket for strings, and 2 bow holders.
Because of it's airtight latches and seals, this case is also weather-resistant. This case does not have wheels. But the 1001SW series are of the same design and features, and they do include wheels.
The case is very light, and I am so glad I waited to get the red color. Unlike other hard cases, you definitely need to open this one by laying it down first, I don't think the hinges can handle it being open while upright. this is combined with the fact that the shell itself is just very light and even a little flexible. The side snaps are plastic but so far they snap closed well. I liked that it came with a lock.
I will say that the customer service from Great Violin Cases was really stand out and they got me the best deal I could see online for this case!
Love the color. Also the case is pretty sturdy, and still light. All the promised items arrived and in perfect condition. The only small down side is the handle to pull the case on its wheel doesn't have the most comfortable grip and is at a weird angle, but not the end of the world.
I originally ordered a Howard Core 4500 cello case but decided to change it because it seemed too flimsy to me. I exchanged it to the BAM Classic cello case and was instantly impressed by the sturdiness, albeit slightly heavier, case and the smooth operation of the latches. The latches you see on the pictures are metal but the ones that came were plastic. I called the BAM distribution center directly and they said this is the new model since 2018 and they are all like that now. I just hope they are sturdy and don't break easily...we'll have to see. This was my first time ordering from Great Violin Cases and the purchase was very easy, even the exchange and the customer service was very helpful. I would definitely order from them again!
