The Hiscox full size cello hard case is a popular choice for cellists wanting maximum protection from a well priced case - it has consequently been a consistently popular choice here at Chamberlain Music.
This model is the ivory coloured 'deluxe' model. When compared to the black the main advantage of this colour is that the inside of the case remains 15% cooler which is significant when the weather is warm. Heat and humidity can damage a cello so this colour makes a good choice for those traveling in the city or using underground train systems which can get particular stuffy in the summer.
Being the deluxe model this case benefits from a significantly increased amount of padding inside the case. Internally the product is covered lavishly in grey, crushed velour and the deluxe model provides just that bit more padding for extra protection. The cello is sat in the case and strapped in so it does not move around whilst in transit. This model also has comfortable and hard wearing leather stitched handles. The most useful accessory is probably the back pack style straps. They are padded and comfortable and as this is the model without wheels it is likely that this is the way it will be carried most often.
Like all of the Hiscox cello cases this model is constructed using the 'Liteflite' method. The outer shell is molded in tough, textured ABS plastic. This is incredibly strong and resists scratches as much as is possible. This is then wedded to another molded shell, this time created from 'cellular foam'. The benefit of this product is that it makes the case much lighter than it would otherwise be whilst providing good impact protection. Most knocks and bumps are absorbed by the case rather than your cello.
Inside the case is equipped with 2 bow holders and an accessory pocket for rosin or strings.
The two halves of the case come together and are secured by 8 metal clips. These clips are held securely in place by being riveted to the shell of the case itself. This ensures the case stays firmly shut.
The case is supplied with a one year manufacturers warranty.
