The Gewa 'X-Lite' cello case is, as the name suggests, designed to offer maximum protection whilst remaining comparatively lightweight. The exterior of the case is made from molded resin which for this lightweight model is reinforced with carbon fibre. This makes the instrument case significantly lighter than the standard or oversize IDEA models.
Internally the case is , again, molded to suite the proportions of your cello but importantly the cello itself is held, suspended in the centre of the case. This offers wonderful impact protection, with the force of any knock absorbed by the case itself rather than the cello. There are two bow holders, each one clasping the bow with a padded strap held in place with Velcro. There is also a small pocket which is ideal for strings or rosin. It comes complete with 2 shoulder straps which enable the case to be carried ruck-sack style!
This case offers a fantastic compromise - it is very lightweight but without the costs associated with the true carbon fibre models whilst offering great overall protection.
