Hello, i am new around here. I don't know many things about cello playing, but my girlfriend does and i was thinking about buying her a soft case. You see, she already has this big, heavy case, which is good, but difficult to carry. I'm planning to get her a soft one - it should be light, foldable, easy to carry around, and elegant. Can you please instruct me concerning the things i should be aware of, when deciding which case to buy? Maybe point me to a buying guide - if something like this exists... And yeah, any good brands that i might look at? I should stress out that i have a limited budged...

Thank you!

I would recommend that you check whether your girlfriend actually wants a soft case. As far as I can tell, most cellists want a hard case to protect the instrument and the soft case is because they cant afford a hard one. I would hate it if you went to some expense and had it thrown at you.

She does want (and need) a lighter case...

What the other person said! 1st did you ask if she wants one?

YOU COULD GIVE ME a soft case! I would never use it. If she had an expensive cello, she might not use it. Hard cases protect against dents and fatal crashes.

YOU COULDN'T GIVE ME... ;)
