Musafia GIL SHARON limited edition Hill model oblong violin case with English cotton-velvet interior, and Cordura exterior.
The GIL SHARON BY MUSAFIA case, with its compact size and optimized instrument protection including Tropicalization (thermal insulation), soft rubberized bow holders, satin instrument cradling and anti-intrusion panels, raises the bar for offering peace of mind to the busy musician. Ample closed and open areas provide an exceptional amount of room for accessories, 100% cotton velvet lining helps provide a stable microclimate while the instrument itself is French-fit cradled in slick, highest-quality satin – a Musafia first – especially recommended for instruments with soft varnish. A world’s first innovation is the adoption of rubbery SoftTouch™ bow holders, which securely click-lock like many others but, unlike them, thanks to Mr. Musafia’s patented detent-less design, they are made out of flexible, bow-friendly soft plastic. This helps protect the bow from wear and in case of accident.
The production of the GIL SHARON BY MUSAFIA case is limited to only 200 certified examples for violin only, fully hand-made by Dimitri Musafia and his assistants in Cremona, Italy, and yet the price is comparable to that of many industrially-made cases.
