Super light, very strong and very rigid, the Musilia S3 cello case has no flex in the convex back. Edge seal helps ease in closing and sealing from the elements.
You can adjust the Musilia S3 cello case using the screw adjusters under lower padded supports, which will secure your cello into the top suspension neck pad.

Standard features included:

  • Two bow holders

    (2024 all models will have orange bow holders. Let us know if you want black instead; it will be a special order) 

  • Two padded anti-slip shoulder straps
  • Download strap installation instructions
  • One pocket for accessories
  • Upgraded clip Neck strap and security strap for the scroll
  • Fully suspended interior
  • 1 Comfortable leather handle (NO Shoulder handle option)
  • Adjustable bottom pads to customize the fit of your cello.
  • Injected foam suspension cushion to secure cello's shoulder and neck heal.

Note: These cases do not need the Security Cables as there is a different shoulder strap mechanism.

Fitting your cello in a Musilia Case:Larger model cellos, with wider upper bouts, like Montagnana patterns, fit the Musilia M5 & M6. Cellos with a 14 1/2" or less upper bout will fit into the S-model cases. If your cello has a wide lower bout, up to about 18", will still fit in the S1 - S3. Due to the adjustable lower bout support the S models can accommodate 7/8 and 'ladies' size cellos quite well.

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.
