Model: CACL18

Weight: 10.3 lbs / 4.7kg (with straps)

This is our most inexpensive hard case, and a great option for student players. The Eastman Classic cello case is a full-suspension case, meaning that no part of the cello is in direct contact with the outer shell of the case at any time, and the instrument is held in place with molded foam padding. The outer shell is made of sturdy, but lightweight, fiberglass with a waterproof seal; the entire case weighs only about 9.6 lbs. without straps, and 10.3 lbs. with straps.

This case features two bow holders and an accessory compartment, and comes with a hygrometer for monitoring humidity levels. Built-in wheels and sturdy padded backpack straps make it easy to transport your cello however you see fit.

We strongly recommend also purchasing a set of security cables for additional protection in case of strap failure.

The classic case comes in the following colors, all of which come with a burgundy velour interior and have a pebble finish that gives the case a sort of "two-toned" appearance:
  • Black (looks like cast-iron)
  • Blue (a few shades lighter than navy)
  • Aqua Green (teal/turquoise)
  • Red
  • Silver (light grey)
  • White (pearly)
  • Gold

Eastman cases are normally readily available in all colors, but if a color is not shown in stock there will normally be a 2-4 day lead time. If a color is not available at the factory, you can expect a wait of up to 3 months. If you don't see your favorite color in stock, it's best to check with us via email.
