Eastman Z-Tek Deluxe Fiberglass 4/4 Cello WHEELED Case.
Top rated fiberglass cello case by Eastman.
Product review: Excerpted from “Strings” magazine, Feburary/March 2003, No. 108. Top Cello Cases.
"To help make your shopping experience a little easier, we've polled dozens of Strings readers, players, and instrument dealers in an online survey to find their views on the best cello cases for short-distance travel. We discovered that there are many more short-distance travelers lugging cellos around than we had originally thought—nearly everyone surveyed traveled with a cello more than three times per week. And the cases they use vary from mere gig bags to valises better suited for airline travel. But a majority gravitate to a specific set of case criteria: prices between $500 and $700, lightweight durability, a suspension system, and secure locks and closures. Although most participants aren’t sold on the newer cello-case models that sport wheels, most agree that backpack straps are essential. Although high prices are a prevalent concern, many survey participants concede that investing in a good-quality case can save money in the long run, in both cello repair and replacement-case purchases.
"J.W. Eastman - The Z-Tek Deluxe case has a solid layer of suspension padding, including a rim of extra filling around the cello bouts and at the scroll. Other features include a well-designed neck block and scroll harness. The case sports a heavy-weather gasket, rubber valance, and keyed locks. Many of our survey participants recommended Eastman cases for their reliability, lightweight design, and well-padded interiors.
