I bought the Bam Ice Supreme 4 months ago as a replacement for my old Gordge violin case of 30 years. I needed something lighter weight to carry around. I’ve been carrying it daily and love it! It holds everything necessary, and is easy to carry, and even cram in small spaces while playing in a crowded ballet pit. Favorite points, my Italian violin is well surrounded by padding and held firmly in place. The top and bottom pieces of the shell seal very well together and appear to allow very little air exchange into the case. The backpack straps attach to the side edges of the case, not the back! This is important so that the D rings do not bore a hole into your neck while you’re carrying it backpack style. Best Part…. The customer service at Greatviolincases.com was the absolute best! I worked with Robbie. He was extremely helpful and gave me many details comparing different models of other cases. He also arranged to have the suspension cube custom cut for my new BAM case to accommodate my high chinrest. Absolutely fantastic service!
