This is one of our best-selling hard cases, and is remarkably sturdy and durable for the price. The Eastman Z-tek Deluxe cello 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 outer shell is made of sturdy but lightweight fiberglass with a waterproof seal; the entire case weighs only about 12 lbs with straps.

This case features two bow holders and an accessory compartment, and comes with a hygrometer for monitoring humidity levels. Built-in wheels and sturdy padded backpack straps make it easy to transport your cello however you see fit.

We strongly recommend also purchasing a set of security cables to add extra protection against clip failure of your backpack straps.

The most noticeable difference between this case and the classic case is the color and finish: this case has a smooth finish and the colors come in a variety of metallic, glossy shades, all of which come with a black velour interior:
  • Black 
  • Blue
  • Dark Red
  • Fire Red
  • Green
  • Orange 
  • Pink
  • Magenta (Eastman calls it 'purple'...)
  • Silver
  • White
  • Yellow
Eastman cases are normally readily available in all colors, but if a color is not shown in stock there will normally be a 2-4 day lead time. If a color is not available at the factory, you can expect a wait of up to 3 months.
