The Gewa IDEA range of cello cases are well known, popular and extremely hard wearing. This 'Vario Plus' model is designed specifically for oversized cellos, those instruments which are a little larger than what we would generally call full size models. The most obvious example of an oversized cello are those which copy the well known maker Domenico Montagnana - worth checking the measurements included within the 'size' tab for more detail.
IDEA cases are constructed from a molded synthetic resin shell which is extremely tough and heard wearing, made more so by being reinforced using fiberglass. The interior is again molded and then covered in padded velour. The cello is further protected by 'padded suspension' which essentially means that the cello is cocooned within an internal molding rather than being too close to the actual shell of the cello case.
The two halves of the cello case come together neatly and are secured in place using the SPS®-lock-system, 4 of the catches are designed for extra security.
Given all of the above the cello case comes in at only 5.8kg. It also comes complete with an accessory pocket, for rosin or strings, 2 internal bow holders and two rucksack style straps.
