Barnes and Mullins has announced the release of a new range of Hidersine Polycarbonate bowed instrument cases for violins, violas and cellos. The new cases feature a lightweight polycarbonate outer shell in a choice of modern brushed purple, brushed silver and carbon fibre effect gloss finishes. The cases come in a number of different shapes that includes standard oblong violin and viola cases, Gourd violin and cello cases and a unique Halfmoon 4/4 violin shaped case.
All the case designs feature detachable shoulder straps, comfort side handles, secure closing clasps and outer zipped pockets. Interior protection comes in the form of fleece linings with blankets, padded supports, bow holders, detachable interior pockets and neck restraints. Combination locks are included on the oblong viola cases.
An innovative moveable neck support included in the oblong violin and viola cases means they are capable of carrying different size instruments by simply adjusting the position of the neck support. The oblong violin case will safely carry 1/2 to 4/4 violins, with the larger viola case comfortably housing 15” –to 17” violas.
Weighing 4.2kg and featuring two padded carry handles plus transport wheels, the cello case ensures the maximum level of comfortability when transporting cellos, B&M says.
