Great case and great company
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!
