Asked On: 08/03/2016

Hi, Is this case made in Germany? I live in sunny California so I need a case that will have some protection against extreme temperatures - especially heat. Can you recommend a good case for a young serious student? It needs to be durable and light weight. Enough room for a rather big chin rest. Preferably not made in China. Also, ideally less than $500. Thanks so much!

SHAR Answer:

Hi Julie, Yes, this case was made in Germany. Yes, you're correct that you'll need a case that will have some protection against extreme temperatures (although keep in mind that there is no case out there that can protect against everything. We don't want to be keeping violins out in extreme heat and sun, nor extreme freezing cold winter weather, for more than necessary-probably not more than a half hour, or else we may face instrument damage). It sounds like this case would meet all of your basic needs & preferences, as well as all of the other cases that you've inquired about (all the ones you asked about, they are all durable, protective against temperature, should fit most chinrests--the differences will largely come down to price and weight). The other case that I can think of that you might want to check out is the Negri Venezia Violin Case (search item# N4) which was made in Spain.

A little case searching advice: basically, when shopping for a case and coming to a decision, you'll want to consider what is most important to you: is it the weight? is it your budget? is it the color/looks, or the bells & whistles? is it the protectiveness? You also want to consider your instrument's value; it may not make sense to purchase a $1000 case to protect a $1500 violin, right? If you already have, or intend to purchase later on, a rather valuable instrument, then maybe it's a good time to invest in a really high quality (perhaps more expensive) case. If you will be traveling a lot in the near future (think frequent air travel or daily subway commutes), then I might choose a really lightweight case. If you think you'll be purchasing a new case in just a few years along with a much more expensive instrument, than maybe it doesn't make sense to spend too much now. I will give you this one tip regarding heat and sun--you may want to consider a lighter colored case (grey, white, other colors) and not a dark/black colored case, because it might help a little bit with not attracting the sun and avoiding heating up the instrument inside too much. Also another thing to consider, since you live in southern California. You'll want to make sure you are humidifying your stringed instrument--it'll protect your instrument and keep it sounding its best. This would be a good time to purchase a case that has a built-in hygrometer and built-in humidifier (like this Jakob Winter case has). If the case you end up choosing doesn't have those, you could try something like theStretto Humidifier for Violin or Viola (which is a case humdifier). It comes with a Stretto bag that effectively humidifies for up to two weeks. They (Stretto) also manufacture a very effective digital hygrometer unit so that you're able to measure your instrument's humidity and keep a close eye on it at all times. Also keep in mind that cases made nowadays last for a really long time these days; generally they're made better these days than ever before. If you intend to use your case for many years to come, keep in mind any life changes that might happen (will you move to a cold-weather climate? will you travel more or less? will you require backpack straps later on?) and purchase a case accordingly.
