After consideration of your opinions at my last post on the Discussion about Musilia's cases, I am now thinking of buying a Musafia Lievissima, but again I havent find posts on this case, but very few words.
Does anybody has anything to share on that case, other than the excellent work and customer service of mr. Musafia which I know from first hand!
Lightweight is my priority and because I now live in Greece, and humidity is in high levels, and temperature is around 40 in summer, and freezing in Winter, as also my country Cyprus has similar dangerous enviroment for violins, so I wouldnt risk my violin in any case.
I was thinking of the Oblong Case without music sheet case, as I am moving constantly on foot, Buses, Subways and planes, so I would also need straps. Would you recommend me the padded straps?
Also would you recommend me other extras on that case that you believe will be useful as I believe this case will be my one for many years!
Please feel free to comment as your opinions help me to make wiser decisions!
I would recommend the padded carrying straps. They're more comfortable, and they don't really add any more weight.
Thanks for your answers!
I think that's more inconvenient and certainly weightier than an integrated pocket. But if you're already carrying a backpack or the like for other reasons when you commute, just put your music into that.
My Lievissima has the integrated pocket. It is convenient and practical. I was, forever arriving at lessons having left my music in the car or the office or at home and now it is always with my violin. You wont find a decent music bag weighing 200g.
My Lievissima has the integrated pocket. I carry the case around quite a bit, it doesn't bother me at all. It also holds a lot more sheet music than my former GEWA case. I've been known to slip my iPad mini and/or iPhone in it too. Trying to think of something I don't like about the case ... Nope, nothing comes up.
I personally would always get the integrated pocket as I dont like to be forced to carry an additional bag. Those 200g should not be too prominent.
