The 1016 shipping case is primarily made for dealers to ship trial instruments. Its short length is preferred especially when violins are sent overnight express. For this reason, there are no interior pockets and no place holders for bows. The #1016 fiberglass shipping case is designed to provide both protection in transit and to compliment the presentation of even the finest of violins. Added features include a triple layer of exterior fiberglass, a padded travel bag, full suspension, a blanket and secure neck straps to hold your instrument in place. Fiberglass case includes black padded Travel cover! The 1016LS oblong shipping case has no bowholders, is just 26” long and weighs 6.0 lbs. Suspension with arched top for superior strength. Plywood construction.
