About This Item

Traditional style with a touch of modern.

The GL Q1 Viola Case offers your viola unparalleled protection, style, and function. Made in Taiwan from 100% Italian Leather, brass hardware, satin and velvet interior, and an incredibly solid wood shell, it is built for a lifetime of companionship. With fully adjustable suspension and interior pouches, you can configure it to fit your viola and accessories perfectly. The thick memory foam suspension holds your viola securely at its strongest points, never letting the back arch touch the bottom of the case. Light external padding between the leather and the shell provides added shock absorption, and in conjunction with the leather, wooden shell, and interior lining, maximum thermal insulation. This is your forever case!

About This Brand

Your loyal companion, from Vienna to Beijing to Nashville ...

Of all the things you have owned over the years, how many do you remember fondly? How many do you still use regularly? Perhaps the bag you grab each day, or the baseball mitt that finally feels "just right," or the bow you always use, even though you own six. Not merely manufactured products, these cherished possessions get better with age, wearing-in "just right" and almost becoming an extension of you. You have depended on them and they have never let you down because they were designed to function flawlessly. And they were built to last, crafted from the best materials and to the highest standards.

GL Cases artfully combine wood, Italian leather, fine metal hardware and expert stitching, all focused to protect your viola and to serve you gracefully. Extensive high temperature and load testing assure that each GL case performs flawlessly. Years down the road, when other cases have become dated or useless, the GL continues to serve ... and the leather reveals your stories in its patina.
