This well-made, brand-name bow case will fit either a German or French style bass bow, and includes an adjustable shoulder strap, comfortable carry handles, an ID tag, and a small rosin pocket with a hook and loop closure.
This nice lined case doesn't weigh a lot, but offers tough protection for your valuable bow; it is made with a lightweight (less than 2 lbs!) but durable protective wood frame that is then clad in a tough outer wrap, which makes it "soft" to carry and offers a rosin pocket, straps, and handles. The padded, velvet-lined red interior is accessed using heavy-duty zippers. The case has a tapered shape and an attractive black 600 Denier nylon outer cover with decorative black piping.
External dimensions and weight (approximate)
- Length: 31.5"/ 800mm
- Depth: 2" / 50.8mm
- The width is about 4" (102mm) at the frog end, tapering to about 2.25" (57mm) at the tip.
- The empty case weighs around 1 3/4 lbs. / .45 kg
It's smaller than other similar single bow cases we've carried, but it does not fit into the bow pocket of a Gollihur Bass Bag. It may fit into other bags that have "gusseted" pockets, but you'll want to compare measurements to those listed above to be sure. Still, it carries well, with an included shoulder strap and lightweight construction.
Internal dimensions (approximate)
- Maximum bow length 30.5" / 775mm
- Interior frog height 3" / 76mm
- Interior Tip height: 1.5" / 38mm at end
Suitable for either German/Butler and/or French Bows, and all of the bows that we sell will fit inside these cases.
The description as having "wood frame" is a little misleading, as I took it to suggest it wasn't completely enclosed in wood. Coming from the guitar world, there this case would be advertised as a hard shell case. The case appears to be made solid wood panels covered on the outside with tough ballistic nylon cloth, and has nicely padded plush interior. Closure is two zippers, which makes perfect sense for the compact case. I feel it offers a very solid rigid bow case that provides excellent protection for my bow. It doesn't fit in the gig bag of my NS Design NXTa electric upright bass, but other cases don't fit there either, including the aluminum bow case Gollihur carries. So one very small knock. That recognized, I can't imagine anything else that isn't perfect about this compact case. Well worth the price.
This bow case is a high quality item that will keep your bow safe. It fits well into my instrument case that has a gusseted pocket for the bow. Highly recommended!
Nice case but does not fit in the pocket of the bass bag (as noted in the product description) so it becomes one more thing to manage when transporting your gear.
This case is excellent for keeping your bow safe from harm.
