Legendary Quality and Performance for Today's Professional
American Cases are designed from the ground up by a design team led by Charles Avsharian, notable violin teacher and American pioneer in case design and manufacture. That's why each American Case originates from a violin teacher's perspective of clarity and purpose.
In the tradition of the venerable Continental oblong violin case, the Continental Dart puts 118 years of American Case experience and knowledge to work in a smaller, lighter package. With the laboratory-certified highly arched shell design of the oblong Continental, the Continental Dart offers the most protection of any compact violin case. Durable black genuine Cordura cover, heavy gauge German-made brass hardware, German latch, and careful craftsmanship assure that each Continental stands the test of time. Like the oblong Continental, the Dart boasts unique American Case bow holders that refuse to pinch bow hair, sewn on oblong feet, a large leather carrying handle, and a subway handle with non-skid rubber grip. Interior fabric of 100% cotton velvet is available in your choice of Claret Red, or Midnight Blue, with matching blanket. For added safety, an accurate digital hygrometer and extra-long vapor bottle is installed in every Continental, as well as genuine silk at all critical points where your violin contacts the case interior. 6.2 lbs.
|"I have been looking over many years for the strongest and most secure violin case in which to carry my Joseph Guarneri. I have now been introduced to the American Case Continental Dart from SHAR and my search is completed. I recommend, without reservation, that this case will answer all the questions and provide players young and old with security and quality."
