Violin Cases, Bags, and Covers
A violin case is one of the most important investments you can make for your violin. Your violin case protects your violin so that you can focus on playing beautiful music, instead of worrying about costly repairs.
When considering what kind of violin case to use, keep in mind that the weight the case can make a big difference. If you spend a lot of time carrying your violin around from school to lessons or from home to performances, you'll notice even a small difference in the weight of your violin case. Some materials (like carbon fiber) make much lighter violin cases than other materials.
A bag or cover can offer some protection for your violin, but if you want to really keep your violin safe, consider a hardshell violin case.
