Musafia or Musilia? That is (not) the question.
Some of you may be aware of a new case company called "Musilia". Not only is this name visibly and phonetically similar to Musafia (which is pronounced moo-SAH-fee-ah), the name Musilia appears to be a contraction of the words Musafia Italia (MUSafIa ItaLIA), which is the name of my company. Musilia’s web address and even their e-mail address differ from mine by just two letters, and thus can be a further cause of confusion to musicians and shops.
People have been asking me if Musilia is some sort of joint venture, between myself and a third party, not least since they claim in their advertising that the cases are “designed in Europe” (they’re manufactured in China). I have even received orders for Musilia cases.
The fact is, I have no association with Musilia whatsoever. I do not design, distribute, approve or endorse Musilia products, nor am I involved with them in any way.
The purpose of this entry is to clarify this fact to all musicians and members of the trade. Why would a new case making firm choose to call themselves "Musilia"?
