Gewa Air 2.1 Oblong Violin Case with Subway Handle - Metallic Silver

The Gewa "Air 2.1" 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.

About Gewa

Originally founded in 1925, Gewa has built a reputation for itself as the creator of some of the most indestructible cases in the world. It is a trusted brand among top musicians such as Elisabeth Pitcairn, Midoi, Jan Vogler, Frank Peter Zimmermann, Mira Wang, and many more. Gewa cases have protected priceless instruments for decades, and each case is carefully devised, designed, and developed in Germany. Gewa holds several patents, such as the swivel bow holder, neck support, material, and many more. With a name like Gewa, you know your beloved instrument is well protected.


"Outside of the size & weight, the locks are my absolute favorite part--no more fooling with a clumsy zipper and latch. Nice accessory pouch and backpack straps too. Highly recommend Gewa."

      This case is wonderful. Very light, plenty of accommodation for accessories like rosin, shoulder rest, extra strings, etc. There is a locking system that you can set your own personal code for, and a detachable music pouch. It’s got everything. As a coworker of mine said when I took it out of the box “that case just ‘looks’ like you’re carrying something important in it.”

      I’m truly thrilled with this purchase!

      Also, it’s important for me to note that the customer service I received was absolutely stellar! I was originally looking at a completely different case that was discontinued. The representative that contacted me suggested several other options and noted with precision the specific benefits of each one. That kind of dedication and knowledge of the product is commendable. I 100% chose to buy my case from this company based on those short but impressive emails, and I will highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a new case! Bravo!

      Finally Got a NEW Case!

      I had my traditional wooden oblong case (no name; 10+ lbs.) for 20 years. As a professional violinist, and with back problems, the extra poundage was taking a toll. I had researched for a lighter and modern case for about five years--read many reviews, oscillating back and forth whether to get a new traditional wooden case with plush interior, versus a modern sleek look. Once my budget grew, I started looking again, and came across Gewa Air 2.1 violin case. It is a very sleek case--very spacious inside, to fit my Bon Musica shoulder rest, and the rest of my accessories. The detachable music pouch fits even the larger sized sheet music without damaging it. I love the backpack straps (first time having one)--so snug and supportive and comfortable. I know German products are high quality, so the hardware is very sturdy. Two things I am not so thrilled are...the backpack straps are so big and bulky that the case does not rest flat on a table, with the straps underneath it. Also, it would be nice if there was an extra handle to open the case instead of using the lock to hold on to lift the case up. I am afraid one of these days it might be damaged... Other than that, I LOVE MY NEW CASE! and Robert, the Case Specialist, was very helpful in answering many of my questions, patient, and even guided me to a special Black Friday special. My original choice was Matte Black, but they were all sold out--I had to pay approximately $40 extra for the Metallic Silver...but it matches my new…
