Gewa Air 3.9
Cello Case, $1,194
When we first saw the new Gewa Air 3.9 cello case,
it was love at first sight! You wouldn't think anyone could
get this excited and enamored with just a cello case, but this is
not just an ordinary case! These cases, all made in Germany, are
made with the newest cutting edge technology. Up until the Gewa Air
3.9, cases were made with composite material (like
fiberglass, carbon fiber or the like). Then and mostly now,
cases are made by laying the material in a mold, infusing some resin
and then the next day the case body part is pulled from the mold.
These cases though use multiple molds. This new technology is
called "Thermoplast". (See the video that highlights
the Gewa factory and how they make these cases below.)
With the new Gewa Air 3.9, they use two molds:
One mold is just a fraction smaller than the other,
whereby they sandwich the part forms together for a super strong unit.
than anything, they are very affordable and VERY lightweight. For a cello player, weight is
everything! (Just carry a heavy cello case for one block from
the parking garage and you will get the 'religion' pretty quickly).
The case aptly called "Air 3.9", is
just that: It is 3.9 kilograms which in pounds translates to
8.58 lbs. The first question cello players will often ask is
"how much does it weigh and does it have wheels?" Well, funny
enough, the one particular factor (weight) often takes care of the
need for the other. So, because these cases are already so light, you
really don't need wheels, nor does anyone ever miss them on this case.
Really, with all
the pained engineering and design to these (space aged) cases, there
is no real need for wheels when you have a case (even with a cello
inside) that is this light. Note that we do offer other brands
that have wheels (look at the Janson, Bobelock or even some BAM
cases). While the Gewa cases are pretty new, we can already tell
that they will surely take over the market in any case out there below
$1,500 (even more really.)
Please watch this phenominal video that
actually shows the process of how they make these cases:
So what makes these new Air 3.9's so good and
how and why are they better than other cases?
Gewa Air 3.9 checklist:
Made in Germany, quality!
Super new thermoplast
technology, 'sandwiched' case shells that are made to fit together
perfectly and then because of this make the absolute strongest
case out there. 8.58 lbs!
Extremely high break-resistance
Outstanding insulation, (company brags about 0.025
W/mK thermal conductivity, which means it keeps the cello cool in
the summers and warmer in the winters
A bargain price for this quality! When you
see and hold this case, you will recognize immediately how
much nicer the case is when compared to anything else.
Everything is super clean and everything just closes and fits
together incredibly so.
It has this nice aluminum strip down the middle of
the front of the case that will keep scuffing down to a mininum
and protects the finish. (No other cello cases has this.)
The handle, latches and fittings inside and out
are super heavy duty (nothing flimsy on this case!)
The weight! 8.58lbs. I know....we already wrote that
here, but it is worth noting it again because there is no other
cello case like this one that is so nice, made so well and that
functions so perfectly.
These cello cases are the best and both professionals
and amateurs alike buy them. They are affordable, well made and
are on a very high, professional level.
