Although this viola case seemed very expensive to me and I have only had it for a very little time I am finding it making my life easier and getting my viola to different places simpler. The design is excellent with a spacious and well-planned interior with secure spaces for the viola, several bows, shoulder rest, rosin, metronome and tuner, pencils and spare strings. It took me some time to attach the rucksack straps but I managed and feel more confident that the instrument and all its bits and pieces are securely held in place on my back. I am an amateur musician in my 70s and live and play in central London so am often carrying it on buses and tube trains and in busy streets. I particularly like the rectangular shape with its detachable pocket to carry music. With my previous viola-shaped case my music got crumpled and damaged. Best of all it looks so good. So thank you, Gewa.

Expensive suitcase, with which one comes far

27.06.2016
In this price class you can expect a comfortable accommodation for the beloved instrument and get it also.
The outer skin of the suitcase is smooth, error-free, stable - and which for me was an argument against nylon-related suitcases - with the expected long life also simply with a damp cloth always wipe and clean. Until now the suitcase was also regendicht (the good piece but of course not a complete drainage).
The snap locks with number locks work smoothly. Numerical locks help, of course, only for a short time against nerve grabbers and thieves in the public transport. Who needs a vault should look somewhere else ..
All in all, with the juicy price one gets a solid, stable and hopefully also very durable bratschenkoffer.

The inner:
The indentation for the instrument is preshaped and the brackets are fastened with strong clasps depending on the size of the viola. If you do not have a full picture-book-shaped instrument, like me, it comes a little bit to crafting and balancing.
Nevertheless everything is sitting tightly and the instrument stays in place. Nevertheless, I would say that the fit would probably be better for instruments 16 inches ++ than for smaller ones.
4 sheets come in the lid.
I would like to emphasize the support for the shoulder rest. It consists of two creepers with which they can be attached. Good for large / extra made / higher / special shoulder rests that would not fit into small solid compartments. Sits well and does not hit the instrument either.
The accessory compartment is also attached by Velcro, you can also take it out if not used. Solid zip, fits everything from replacement strings to rosin.
The soft cloth cover for the instrument sometimes remains attached to the hook for fixing the neck when you are ashamed. But not bad.

Overall, I am very satisfied, and I am also expecting that this bratschoffer will do its service for a long time.
