Case Options Explore the wide range of optional case features offered by Musafia.

Tropicalization

Exclusive thermal insulation package which reduces internal temperature excursion by as much as 60% in hot weather and 30% in cold, thus protecting the instrument from abrupt changes in both temperature and relative humidity. Added weight is about 100g - 150g. Recommended for those with antique or heavily restored instruments. Another Musafia first, standard on Lievissima, Gil Sharon and Enigma*.

$145.00

Waterproofing

With just about every case with attached cover, in extreme conditions water can eventually penetrate through the case cover material or the stitching (although in normal conditions of use this will not happen). For those who desire the maximum protection for their instrument against this type of occurrence, the frame of Musafia cases can be treated with a polyeurethane film for maximum water resistance, and the result is that the case will actually float on water! Added weight is negligeable. Another Musafia first, standard on Enigma*.

$88.00

WeatherGuard

With the WeatherGuard, the lid and the bottom fit together like the closure of a vault. Introduced for the first time on a professional case in 2003, the WeatherGuard valance and groove closure increase resistance in case of impact as well as keeping weather out. Adds about 150g weight. Another Musafia first, standard on Enigma*. Not available on Momentum or Ultralight models (U2112R, U3012, etc.). Not available with Alcantara shell lining option. With this option, latch closure and zipper operation may be slightly less easy especially when the case is new.

$174.00

Reinforced Frame

A resined-on woven mat, in a process similar to fiberglassing, covers all joinery creating a monolithical, impact-resistant shell. Adds approximately 500g. (1-1/4 lbs.) to case weight (violin models). Doesn't increase load-bearing capability as in the Protecta System™ above, however resistance to lateral impact is greatly enhanced. Recommended for those who subject the case to hard use. If you order the Protecta System (above) you don't need to order also this option.

$145.00

Larger Music Pocket

Our enlarged music pouch is thicker (higher) than normal, containing about 100% more sheet music than the standard pocket (and that of most of the competition). Standard on all Master Series and Enigma cases.

$49.00

Hidden Pocket

This is basically a music pocket with a false bottom: ideal for placing airline tickets, passports, checkbooks, etc. Standard on Enigma*.

$62.00

Gold Fittings

The screws and eyelets that affix the case cover to the case can be laminated in gold to prevent rust and corrosion, as well as being pleasing to the eye. Standard on all Aeternum, Master Series, and Enigma models.

$76.00

Illumination for Aeternum

Accessory box illumination, useful in dark back stages. Four high-output, low-drain LED micro-beams illuminate the two main accessory compartments at the command of a switch. The battery life with alkaline cells is about 200 hours.    

$269.00

Illumination for Master Series/Aureum

Accessory box illumination, useful in dark back stages. Four high-output, low-drain LED micro-beams illuminate the two main accessory compartments at the command of a switch. The battery life with alkaline cells is about 200 hours.    

$269.00

Pressure Ports

During hot weather, cases exposed to direct sunlight suffer seemingly inexplicable increases of relative humidity within the case, which can sometimes double in the space of only 20-30 minutes, stressing the instrument greatly. It is not uncommon to find that in the long term this can breed mildew within the case or instrument. Musafia PressurePorts™ release excess pressure in these conditions and stabilizes relative humidity levels. This option is perfectly compatible with all other Musafia options, and does not allow water to enter the case. Standard on Enigma*.

$72.00

Leather Exterior

In lieu of our usual Teflon-treated Cordura nylon, we can also make the case cover out of leather, for a particularly luxurious appearance. The leather used is light in weight, with a textile reinforcement on the reverse side to make it puncture resistant. Cases with leather covers also benefit by Tropicalization included in the package. Available in black, dark brown, and blue. Available on all Musafia Cremona Italy models, except Ultralight models (models with code number starting with "U").and Lievissima.

$672.00

Bow Tip Cushions

Special bow tip cushions help protect your bows from possible damage in case of impact. Simple yet unique in concept, these Alcantara®-covered pads offer extra protection for the tips, notoriously the most fragile part of the bow. Fore-and-aft movement is restricted, a useful "plus" in case of impact or severe jolt. Standard on Enigma*.

$59.00

Protecta System

Armored shell for greatest protection. The upgraded construction features up to 9-ply lamination to assure load-bearing capability of up to 200 kg. (440 lbs) while a resined-on woven mat, in a process similar to fiberglassing, covers all joinery creating a monolithical, impact-resistant shell. Adds approximately 700g. (1-1/2 lbs.) to case weight (violin models). A must for important instruments, highly recommended for those who subject the case to hard use, such as routinely loading in a tour bus hold.

$288.00

Super Silk

Upon special request, Musafia cases can be lined in SuperSilk™, a plush velvet with particularly high silk content. Being more hygroscopic (i.e. moisture absorbent) than the velvet we normally use, this feature enhances the stability of the microclimate within the case.  Please note however that SuperSilk™ velvet is not as lustrous as our normal silk velvet, which contains a higher percentage of viscosa. Five colors available: Forest Green, Mojave Beige, Chianti Red, Pacific Blue, Alpensilber Grey. Optional on all Musafia Cremona Italy cases in lieu of Royale or normal silk velvet. Please note that the current supply of beige is darker than in the image shown.

$53.00

Black Velvet

The elegance of rich, soft, deep black velvet is unsurpassed. Upon special request, and Musafia Cremona Italy may have the interior lining graced with this limited-production velvet, made in one of the most prestigious mills in Italy.

$61.00

Alcantara Shell Lining

For a particularly elegant effect, the dark brown leatherette used to cover the case frame where it's visible can be substituted with suede-like Alcantara®. This isn't only a pleasing aesthetic effect, however: overall weight of the case will be reduced by up to 200g (depending on model). Not available in conjunction with WeatherGuard.

$98.00

Cherrywood Burl Trim

Aeternum, Master Series, and Enigma cases get a further, highly refined touch of elegance and exclusivity with cherrywood burl trim, polished by hand with six coats of gumlack, a traditional violin-maker's varnish mixed and colored in our own atelier.  

$75.00

Case Caddy

Imagine a little pouch big enough for a foldable music stand or a portable umbrella, made with all the same strong materials of Musafia Cremona Italy case covers. Imagine that it has a separate strap for portability and that you can thread your Musafia carrying strap through it for hands-free use. Made in all the same colors as our case covers for a perfect match!  Overall length 40cm; can be made longer upon special request.

$55.00

Pillow Blanket

The softest protection imaginable inside your Musafia case! This pillow-blanket is lined on both sides in rosin-resistant smooth, high-grade monocolor beige satin, and filled with low-density cotton air padding. Weighing approximately 70g (oblong violin version), provides optimum protection covering the violin completely. Do NOT use in addition to the standard blanket. Standard on Gil Sharon by Musafia cases.

$42.00

Padded Strap

Ease the weight on your shoulders with the padded, adjustable-length Musafia padded carrying strap. It's 5 cm-wide padded strip is made of non-abrasive material in order to save the wear on your clothes. Dark brown color matches all Musafia cases. Brass or brass plated metal components. No plastic used. Snap hooks have been recently upgraded.

$66.00

Hygrometer

The dial-type Musafia hygrometer, made exclusively for Mr. Musafia, is standard on all Musafia cases except Lievissima. Being that it is a compact but not precision instrument, It does not indicate the exact relative humidity but rather "zones" which are useful for use in conjunction with the Dimus II humidifier.  It is calibrated twice before leaving the atelier: once before installation, and again before preparing the case for final sale.

$20.00

Thermometer

The exclusive dial-type Musafia thermometer, standard on all Master Series and Enigma cases, indicates temperature in both Celsius and Fahrenheit. Surprisingly accurate, does not require periodic recalibration, but if necessary the post-2008 version facilitates this operation.

$20.00

Fitted Interior

Violin cases (not just viola cases) can now be made to measure, if you have an oversized or smaller-than-average violin. This ensures that the case is providing the optimum protection for your instrument, by allowing only the designed proper movement in case of accidental fall or impact. Available on Momentum, Superleggero, Luxury, and Aeternum models.

$92.00

Contoured Fitted Interior

Violin cases (not just viola cases) can now be made to exact pattern, if you have an oversized or smaller-than-average violin, or one with a particular shape. This ensures that the case is providing the optimum protection for your instrument, by allowing only the designed proper movement in case of an accidental fall or impact. Available on all models except Lievissima.

$257.00

Soft Touch Bow Spinners

Who says that bow spinners have to made out of hard plastic? Once optional, now all Musafia cases are fitted with the new, flexible, rubbery bow spinners that are easier on the bow while still clicking into place, through the spring-loaded Musafia safety feature to help avoid the bow accidentally dropping onto the instrument.

$41.00

Digital Thermometer/Hygrometer

Our high-accuracy digital thermo-hygrometer, shows temperature and humidity on an easy-to-read LCD display. Temperature shown in °F or °C, in increments of 0.1°, relative humidity in increments of 1%. Thermometer accuracy +/- 0.5°C circa; hygrometer accuracy +/- 3% circa. Thermometer range: -10 C° to 50 °C (14°F to 122°F). Includes high-low memory function. Can be used detached from case and placed anywhere (table, desk, etc). In white over grey only. Available in lieu of our normal dial-type instruments at a small extra charge, or in addition to them for out-of-case use. Cannot be fitted to Luxury Ultralight U3012 violin cases or dart shaped cases; for these models it can be supplied detached only.

$52.00

Swarovski Crystals

Would you like some extra sparkle inside your Musafia? Add some bling to the interior with the addition of Golden-shadow Swarovski crystals covering the screws that hold the bow spinners in place! Standard on Aeternum Aureum.

$65.00

Leather Neck Ties

Instead of the normal Velcro restraints, as an option you can order long-lasting leather ribbons to hold in your violin and, depending on the model, also your shoulder rest. Guaranteed to last as long as the case.

$31.00

Shadow Design

If you're looking for a more low-key appearance on the outside of the case in order to avoid unwanted attention, the ShadowDesign option may be for you. The screws, eyelets, carrying strap attachments, handle mounts, and other details are all finished with a matching darker, antique brass appearance. Corrosion resistant.

$60.00

GPS Tracker

FindMe™, a small 50g transponder – custom-made to Musafia specifications - hidden within the case can be asked via cellphone to reveal its position, movement, speed, and even monitor ambient sound. Positioning is rendered graphically via Google Maps with no monthly charge. Geo-fencing function. Rechargeable Li-ion battery provides 100h+ standby time, supplied with EU and US standard chargers as well as a second battery. Quad-band 850/900/1800/1900 Mhz. GPS unit is hidden but not built into the case, in order to allow quick removal for use in other cases, facilitate replacement or upgrading, etc. Requires prepaid SIM card for the device and a smartphone (not included). Detailed operating instructions supplied. Like all GPS trackers currently available, the FindMe™ GPS uses GSM/GPRS 2G cellular service to operate, using a pre-paid SIM card for tracker/home security use. Please verify local availability of 2G GSM/GPRS tracker/home security-use SIM cards and services before ordering FindMe™.

$172.00

Humiditrak

D’Addario Humiditrak® is a tiny 15g sensor the size of a key fob which allows you, without opening the case, to check the microclimate within via your smartphone (not included), and monitor it graphically by hour, by day and by month. 21-day memory. The sensor can alert you if preset parameters are exceeded. 1-year battery life, range up to 50’. Includes motion sensor and alert.

$60.00

A440 Tuner

This is a nifty electronic tuner that provides an A-440 at the touch of a button. About the size of a cake of rosin and lighter than a tuning fork, it can be kept inside an accessory box, or fixed permanently to the case interior by screw attachment.

$26.00
