What's the most top-end violin case one can buy? I've heard a lot about Musafia cases, but are there any other top-of-the-line cases?
Think it would be funny if I showed up to an orchestra all professional-looking with a fancy case, open it up and..... There's a 400$ Fiddlerman Concert in there. 400$ violin, >1800$ case.
(Not that I intend to buy one. Either a violin case or college at this point. And I'm not selling my soul to the devil.Just curious.)
I bought a Core case when I had my violin restored. The case cost more than the violin repairs - about $200 after a discount since the shop hadn't worked on such an oddity/old violin. The repairs and a bow was $180. Worth every penny for the case. I haven't traveled much with my fiddle so only time will tell on the wear and tear. It is well padded, hygrometer, nice cover, 4 bow slots. If I had $1800 to blow I'd get a back up violin. Last time I checked the case didn't make a lot of music...
