Embassy Ambassador Violin Case
The first time you open this case, you will pause for several moments to take it all in. The interior is finished with contrasting cream suede on your choice of olive green, claret red, deep blue or onyx black cotton velvet lining, quilted in a dramatic diamond pattern or choose from two new interiors: purple paisley or black paisley, in a subtle finish, with a gray twill cover. The case lid has a distinctive recessed design, and one's eye is irresistably drawn to the bow spinners, which have a unique wood-grain finish. For an elegant exterior, all hardware is gold-toned, including latch and all screws, heavy-duty carrying strap ring, the feet, even the zipper pull. Matte silver finish hardware installed on new purple paisley and black paisley models. Nicely detailed, soft leather subway strap and two padded carrying straps with metal clasps are also included. The arched top and back of the wood case shell is the final touch to the Ambassador's impressive design. For 4/4 violin only.

Ratings & Reviews
great heavy duty case
pros: 1. It has suspension and feels very strong so I feel my daughter's violin is safe in the case. I felt like if my husband (220 lbs) could sit on the case without breaking the violin. 2. good looking case cons: 1. the straps has the hook side facing the neck, felt like it could scratch the neck of the violin. The manufacturer could have these straps reverse. 2, very heavy -- 8 lbs. Even though I read the specs before I bought it, but not until it was in our hands that we realized how heavy it is. With the backpack straps, violin, violin bow, rosin, shoulder rest, pencil, mute(s), cleaning cloth, extra strings, nail clipper, sheet music, it could easily add up to over 10 pounds. However, my daughter only carry it once a week to her lessons. 3. my daughter complained that the silk on the blanket should have matched the color of the fabric where the violin sits instead of white. :)
Beautiful and Luxurious
I got this on the website sale, so the price was very reasonable. Since I didn't get to see it in person I was a little nervous. I was pleasantly surprised however when it arrived. This is a very luxurious and solidly built case! I got the black paisley interior with the brushed silver hinges and green exterior. It was so beautiful I wanted to keep it for myself! When my daughter saw what had arrived she demanded to take possession exclaiming "dad, you hardly ever play YOUR violin". I gave in and handed it over.
Beautiful but poor quality
Upon receiving my purple case, I was impressed by how beautiful it was. It is a perfect shade of purple and has wonderful brown accents. The outside is even a nice blue-gray. However, the latch does not align properly so I have to push inwards for it close. Also, two weeks after starting to use it, the fabric near the strap holders ripped. I payed less for my old case and had it for over 5 years and it never ripped. I would not recommend it.
Just ordered... I didn't read the other comment though. Looks good though, but i'll test it out and see what happens after 1 week or 2 and say what happens.
I purchased this case so I could use it for many years, but after only one year, the fabric started ripping around the strap holders. although the case is very beautiful, the quality is very very poor. I would never recommend this case. I have seen cases that cost much less that were built much better. I do not recommend this product, was very disappointed, especially for the price I paid.
TEST REVEW & PHOTO
TEST - PLEASE DELETE
This case was not what I expected. It looks beautiful in the picture, but on close inspection, it turns out to be made out of cheap materials and is poorly crafted. The fabric is not soft or cushy. It feels like fuzzy paper. In addition, it is not hemmed properly inside the accessory pockets and looks as though it will unravel. The paisley pattern is printed on, not swen into, the fabric. Leather-like seems along the outside edges are plastic and don't seem like they would last long. Overall a cheap-looking product. I returned it.
Not worth the money
Within one week the lock/latch was broken. Within 4 weeks the straps began ripping out of the fabric. Definitely not quality material on the outside.
