This hard cello case is basically the lightest case in the land! It is significantly lighter than the rest of the cases in the Gewa range and for those traveling constantly the hefty price-tag is well worth the investment.
The case is very easy to carry rucksack style with the two padded straps supplied, the weight of course makes a significant difference to your back as well as it being much easier to maneuver across train platforms, onto buses, into taxis etc.
Internally the case is similar to other Gewa cases, moulded to fit the cello snugly whilst suspending the cello in the centre of the case which gives fantastic impact protection.
A note on Carbon Fibre:
To produce a carbon fiber, the carbon atoms are bonded together in crystals that are more or less aligned parallel to the long axis of the fiber as the crystal alignment gives the fiber high strength-to-volume ratio (making it strong for its size). Several thousand carbon fibers are bundled together to form a tow, which may be used by itself or woven into a fabric.
For these cello cases the fibre mats are impregnated and reinforced with synthetic resins which is then hardened in a mould under extreme heat and pressure.
