I'm contemplating on buying a Tonareli cello-shaped violin case (pink), which is listed as $177 (link: http://www.acavalloviolins.com/details.php?prodID=871&CAT=3 ). I was really happy about the price because when I first thought about buying this case, it was $220+. I'm glad to see that overtime, the price lowered. However, I don't really NEED this case. I just thought I could buy it as my own birthday present for me (coming up). Does anyone in the forum have experience/own(ed/s) this type of case?
My current case is just a standard one that my Luthier gave me when I bought my violin. It's pretty neat in that it has a lot of room, has great protective covers, and hard-case. Like I said, I don't need a new case. I just figured that this could be a similar money binge girls like me treat themselves to (ie designer purses, etc).
So what do you guys think? Waste of money? Is it actually really protective? Is it efficient in what it's supposed to do (ie protecting your violin, and has room for music/rosin/shoulder rest. Well I don't really need a shoulder rest as my teacher is one of those who discourage it)?
