Howard Core CC808 Composite Violin Case

Howard Core CC808 Composite Violin Case

The CC808 is a lightweight composite shell oblong violin case with a gray grid exterior. What makes this case more sturdy than your average fiberglass shell is its composite fiberglass reinforced plastic properties. It's also a weather-resistant case that can protect your instrument from thermo shock. Many fiberglass, composite fiberglass, or carbon fiber violin cases do not include music bags. This case however, has made it apart of the case.

Another popular option is the Howard Core Carbon Weave violin case. Which provides greater protection.

A good light, hard shell, roomy case

I really like the design of this case, it’s appearance, and the weight. I like the adjustable support for the neck and the shoulder rest strap. I had thought that the external music pocket would get in the way and that I would probably remove it. But I’ve found it doesn’t get in the way at all. On the negative side it had a very strong smell of glue when I first opened it. That has dissipated. I think the outside could scratch easily, but I believe all hard shell cases have that problem. The latches work great and it comes with high quality shoulder straps. I love not having to unzip in order to open the case. I had intended to order a BAM Saint Germain but decided I preferred latches and a hard exterior that might accept stickers (I haven’t tried that yet). So far, so good.
