The BAM Hightech Slim 2.9 is a variant of the
Compact 3.5, and is designed to fit the instrument as closely as possible, taking off a few ounces in weight. It is therefore one of our lightest BAM cases and is a great option if weight limits are a concern.
This case is a full-suspension case, meaning that no part of the cello is in direct contact with the outer shell of the case at any time, and the instrument is held in place with molded foam padding. The case has a triple-ply shell, with an Airex skeleton sandwiched between a film of tear resistant plastic and an outside layer of sleek, metallic ABS, which makes the shell highly resistant and rigid.
A special feature of this case is that a new design on the backside gives excellent balance to the case while it is laying flat. It also features two bow holders, anti-slip shoulder straps (this case does
not come with wheels), an accessory pocket, and a comfortable handle. The outside is waterproof.
We strongly recommend also purchasing a set of
security cables for the low price of $8, which can be added to the cost of this case in checkout.
The Slim 2.9 Cello Case comes in the following colors, all of which come with a black velvet interior:
Since BAM recently set up a new workshop in Thailand and are focused on developing new cases, we've experience longer-than-normal wait times when waiting for new cases. If ordering a BAM case, check with us by email to find out the backorder time line; you can expect a wait of up to 3-4 months. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Note that although the density of the "sandwich" structure is increased compared to the BAM 3.5, the thickness is reduced. Although these cases are protective and excellent for daily use, they should not be used for heavy air travel. For air travel we recommend the Bam Flight Case.
