Well that's OK because this
superb bow case has been cleverly designed so as to carry either
a French model bow or a German pattern bow in the same case. Its
very simple to use as well - for inside the case - on
the right hand side - are two slots for the handle end of your bow.
A French bow player can use either slot while the longer upper slot
will easily take the extended button of the German pattern bow.
With a shell made from 9mm ply
and a padded outside nylon cover that has been attached to the shell
by stylish chrome screws, whichever pattern bow you use - you will
be happy in the knowledge that this case has been made to totally
protect your favourite bow. All this protection comes with superb
style too for the case itself is opened and closed by two heavy
duty two-way zips that make just-the-right sort of sound (you know
what I mean - a deep throated z.z.z..zip.…) when you do them
Well - there are two rugged carry
handles on the sides and an adjustable shoulder strap that attaches
onto two chrome rings on the underside of the case. On the top of
the case is a 22cm pocket - once again opened by two-way zips
- which will accommodate your resin, pencils, rubbers etc. with
Ah yes, the inside. I thought
that you'd never ask - for the padded velvet - in a wonderful
shade of deep burgundy - really is total luxury for your bow.
Yes it should. These cases have
been designed to accommodate bows with a maximum length of 73.5cm
(from tip to button end). The occasional H.R. Pfretchner bow is
of this length (and believe me that is long) so it is extremely
unlikely that you will have one of a greater length. Please -
by all means - if in doubt - do measure the length of your bow first.
These cases look really good and
they are extremely well made. Overall we boffins at The Contrabass
Shoppe recon that they are the best on the market.
