We recommend using the Eastman BC40 Octagonal Brazilwood Bow and Awesome Eastman CC50 Soft Case with this cello. Soft case has very thick padding, very tough fabric exterior, numerous grab handles and sturdy removeable backpack straps. $129 retail for soft case, $129 retail for bow. Aggressive discount given along with this cello. Upgrade to strings of your choice at a bargain price too.
Insured shipping to the lower 48 U.S. States is $95.00. We take a lot of additional care shipping your new cello so it "CAN'T" get broken in shipping. It will be double boxed with extra padding to guard against shipping damage. It will also be shipped with the sound post in the correct position instead of knocked down which saves you a trip to a local music store to reset the soundpost.
You can't ship with the soundpost in place in a carved cello unless the cello is double boxed and padded well against impacts.
3 to 4 out of 10 get broken when shipped in the single box packaging that cellos standardly ship in. We got tired of that breakage and now double box and pad well even though it costs a lot more to ship - and we have not had any break this way. Don't expect we ever will when packed this well.
The $95.00 is for the additional cost of shipping a larger box and doesn't even cover packing materials, additional labor and larger shipping box costs.
