The most balanced weight/strength ratio. Very popular choice for cellists who require a strong case that is at the same time extremely light. Estimated strength: 40 kilo crush resistance. All Accord cases have a unique suspension system engineered to float the instruments on a cushion of foam pads. Wedge cushions can be easily adjusted for different instruments and provide very precise inside fitting and safety. Ecological and chemically neutral insulation does not interact with, or in any way harm the finish of the instrument. Prevents the accumulation of moisture. Excellent insulating qualities. Adjustable bottom pads fit the exact length of any instrument.

Available in 7/8 (which also fits 3/4 cellos), Medium, and Large (good for cellos like Montagnanas)

Special Note about 7/8 instruments: your cello cannot be taller than 45 1/4" from bottom of lower bout to top of scroll or it will NOT fit into a 7/8 case. 


  • high-glossy finish
  • two back straps
  • foam interior with spare sets cushions

Technology: Accord cases have been a premium choice for musicians all over the world who want to make their life easier. The reason for that is that Accord cases are built of advanced composite materials which guarantee a truly unprecedented weight/strength ratio. Accord uses unique technology to achieve lightness, strength, instrument safety and reduction in size. Furthermore, Accord's production process is based on gradual case reinforcements with Kevlar, depending on Accord's customer's demands. Hand made of finest quality fabrics and fittings. Accord cases are designed to be both beautiful and extremely protective. Within the artisan constructed carbon shell (twice the strength of any conventional material of the same weight), is a dual density foam suspension system to totally isolate the instrument from any impact.

Carbon Case Caution - If you are shopping for a case that is going to be sturdy, rugged and secure, light-weight carbon fiber cases may disappoint you. Although they ARE sturdy and secure, there are certain things about these cases that every shopper needs to be aware of. Carbon Fiber cases are very light because the carbon fiber is tougher than other materials, therefore, the case body is not very thick. This creates a few issues that you need to be aware of before purchasing:


  • When open, Carbon fiber cases have quite a bit of flex and it takes some care to line up the top and bottom correctly before latching. However, when closed, they are very rigid.
  • Standing a carbon fiber case on end with your cello in it (case either opened or closed) is NOT recommended because of the slim profile and light weight. It would take just a slight bump to unbalance it and knock it over.
  • The less expensive the carbon fiber case is, the more issues you will have with it. Like all other things, you get what you pay for.
  • Less expensive carbon fiber cases tend to have more issues with fit and finish, including hardware failures, durability, and padding.
Note: Uses D rings and swivel snaps, which occasionally fail. We recommend buying Security Cables just in case.
