About This Item

Super Light and Super Sleek for Your Montagnana Pattern Cello


The SL Super Light Carbon Composite is now available for Montagnana pattern cellos! Strong and protective carbon hybrid shell cradles your cello. Black cloth interior, with built-in music folio and accessory pocket for a set of strings or rosin. 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 zippers, which will not wear out like Velcro or other hook and loop systems.

Silver Gray exterior. 9.2 lbs.

Question By:
Jiseong Park
From mclean, VA

Asked On: 10/20/2017

How wide is the place where the upper bout corners (lowest points of upper bout) are to be located? The upper bout of my cello is the widest at these corners, about 14.5 inches ( 37 cm.) Even though this case has wide enough upper bout for my cello, I am not sure whether this upper bout corner area will fit in. Thank you.

SHAR Answer:

Hi Jiseong! Our apologizes for the delayed response. The lowest point of the upper bout measures 14". It sounds like your instrument may be a bit too wide at the corners to fit in this case. If you have any other measurement questions, please let us know.

Question By:
RUSSELL ROCK
From LOS ANGELES, CA

Asked On: 08/03/2016

I forgot to ask whether this case comes with shoulder straps. Does it? Thanks.

SHAR Answer:

Hi Russell! The SL Montagnana Carbon Hybrid Cello Case does come with padded shoulder straps. They can either attach to D-rings on either side of the case (as pictured) or to one D-Ring that is on the backside of the cello case in the middle of the upper bout (this one is not pictured). These two cushioned straps would attach to the appropriate D-rings using secure carabiner-type attachments. Thank you for your question!

Question By:

From PORT JEFFERSON, NY

Asked On: 08/02/2016

What is the Interior Dimensions of the case? Will it fit the cello measured below? Lower bout: 45.4cm (or 17 14/16 inch) Upper bout: 37.5cm (or 14 3/4 inch) Mid bout : 26cm (or 10 5/16 inch) Length: 102cm (40.16in)

SHAR Answer:

Hello, Here are the interior dimensions of this case, the SL Montagnana Carbon Hybrid Cello case. Lower bout: 19.5 inch; Upper bout: 14.25 inch but this is adjustable due to removable padding, it could be as wide as 15.25 inches to fit the shoulders; Mid bout: 12 inches. Length of case's body from where the cello's button would rest to the endpin area: 33.5 inches. Length of entire cello case from where the scroll would be all the way to the endpin area: 49.5 inches. Not sure which length measurement you were using, so I'm not sure if it will fit the cello measurements that you provided. If you were using the body, then it won't fit; if you were giving me the entire length from scroll to endpin, then yes, it should fit. This case also has a fairly high arch. Thank you for your question!
