About This Item

Great Looks, Loaded with Features, Easy on Your Back and on Your Wallet!

A lightweight and feature-rich cello case at a mid-priced level! The sculpted high gloss shell is surprisingly strong, because we added 20% carbon fiber to its fiberglass backbone, increasing strength, yet keeping it light. Smoothly rolling wheels are a great help at the airport or in hallways at music school. Easy to use latches flip out of the way when opening with just the touch of your thumb. Inside, elegant dark gray lining coordinates perfectly with the shell and trim. Firm suspension padding with soft retention pads, and an extra-large accessory pocket in the top to hold a set of strings and rosin. We've even included a small internal pocket to hold one or two sheet music titles. Backpacking straps and pull handle included. D-rings are located so they will work with most aftermarket backpack carrying cushions, such as the SHAR Backpack System.

Safety first:

  • The premium neck restraint strap is designed with an adjustable clip system, which will stand the test of time, not wear out like Velcro and other hook and loop systems.
  • The premium scroll restraint is made of strong strapping material, with an adjuster, to custom-fit your cello, and provide just the right level of security: as a backup to the neck strap, NOT an elastic band that can add unsafe stress to your cello's neck.
  • The bow holders use magnets, which will not wear out like Velcro or other hook and loop systems.

Fits most cello patterns except Montagnana. 4/4 size. Only 7.85 lbs!

Customer Questions

Question by:


Asked On: 07/17/2020

What is the difference between this case and the case that is 200 more expensive? The other case is slightly heavier, but also listed as super light, and looks similar.

SHAR Answer:

Hi Bethany, thanks for your question! The primary difference between the SL500 and SL1000 is the build materials of the cases. The SL500 is designed for mobility and constructed of a combination of fiberglass and carbon fiber. It's very lightweight (7.85 lbs) and allows for easy transport of your instrument. The SL1000 is constructed entirely of a carbon composite material. The added durability of the carbon shell helps protect your instrument while keeping the case lightweight. Hope this helps!

Asked On: 09/27/2016

How much music can the pocket hold?

SHAR Answer:

Hi Rachel! The pocket is compact and the amount of music it can hold depends on the size and thickness of the books. Typically, you can fit 1-3 books. If you're looking for additional storage, the SHAR Backpack System is a great option! Thanks for your question!

Asked On: 09/21/2016

Where is the handle for pulling when you want to use the wheels? Is it a hard-moulded handle built into the back of the case or is it a pull strap that you clip on? Thank-you!

SHAR Answer:

Hi Terri! This case includes a pull handle which can be clipped on to back of the case. The handle works great with the wheels for transporting!

Are the wheels replaceable?

SHAR Answer:

Thanks for your question Linda! The wheels on this case are attached with rivets and are not replaceable. However, the wheels are very study and the case is covered by SHAR's 1 year warranty against defects of workmanship or materials. Hope this helps!
