Asked On: 10/01/2019

Is it heavy like the American case? I need a new case because the one I currently have (American) is just too heavy

SHAR Answer:

Hello Michelle! At 5.5 lbs, the SL Super Light violin case is one of our most light weight cases. Since most of our American Cases weight between 7 and 8 lbs, this SL case should feel noticeably lighter in comparison. Let us know if you have any other questions!

HI, Is there a way to adjust the padding to fit a 3/4 violin in this case? Or maybe you know of a solution to make it work for a 3/4. Thanks

SHAR Answer:

Hello Philippe! This case is designed for a 4/4 size violin only. While you could add extra padding of your own to fill any gaps around a 3/4 size instrument, it is not something we recommend, since you would be offering your instrument unstable support. Let us know if you have any other questions.

Asked On: 09/28/2019

Does this case fit a 14 inch viola?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Anna! Since a 4/4 size violin and a 14 inch viola are roughly the same size, your viola should fit in this case. Violas can sometimes be a little wider than violins, so please compare your instrument measurements to the interior measurements of the case found on the Features/Specs tab to ensure that your instrument will fit. Let us know if you have any other questions!

Asked On: 09/10/2019

Is it sturdy enough to check in on an airplane?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Olivia! While this case does have a sturdy shell, checking your instrument on a plane can be risky. Even with the best cases, there is still a very high probability of damage due to rough handling by airport staff and the lack of temperature control. We will always recommend taking smaller instruments (violins, violas) on the plane with you. Let us know if you have any other questions!
