Gewa Air 1.7 Shaped Violin Case with Subway Handle - Brown

The Gewa "Air 1.7" are German-engineered cases that are extremely strong, and unbelievably light violin cases.They've been an extremely popular option among top musicians around the world! They feature energy-absorbing thermoplastic shells. The cases are produced by bonding the materials with heat. The foam between the inner and outer shells is injected under high pressure. This is a different technique from most other cases in the market, where the already finished material is bent into shape. This causes stress and different thickness in the material, especially around the critical edges. Because of Gewa's unique, high-quality, and German-engineered development techniques, the Gewa Air cases offer exceptional protection and insulation against cold and heat.

New case after 20 years!

I love this fitted Gewa case! The brown color is really subtle and

sophisticated with a tinge of grey in the brown. There's plenty of room

for things I need. We don't need to fit the kitchen sink in our cases!

I can take a carry bag to a gig for stand lights, clothes pins, music, whatever. It's so easy getting the case out of the car! High quality

and great craftsmanship.
