The Superleggero is an extremely functional and elegant case line that offers artisan quality and care at the price of many industrially-made cases. First introduced in 1986, the Superleggero has been perfected over the decades to combine the classic design, safety and quality of the higher-priced Musafia cases for those who prefer a tasteful but not ostentatious case.
Completely redesigned for 2021, the fourth edition of the Superleggero increases both practicality and instrument safety. The large open area, with an elastic to hold string packets, allows also placement of the shoulder rest, freeing room inside the accessory compartment. The violin moved to the center of the case allows it to be better protected from bumps coming from all directions, while there are now two load-bearing transverse structural partitions for vastly increased sideways crush resistance.
Design and construction
Revolutionary and exclusive hybrid Kevlar® and wood laminate construction. Continuum High-Tensile™ wood laminate specially milled to 0.1mm tolerances in thickness, up to 6-ply. Inner layers checked for defects via transparency before use. Structure cold-bent to avoid possible warping; lightweight, highly resistant and repairable in case of damage. Internal partitions are load-bearing and structural to increase the overall strength. Monolithic impact absorbing structure created through the use of high-density (28 kg/m3) foam with surface reinforcement cemented to both sides and bottom. Though-bolted zinc-plated steel reinforcements on all viola cases for superior long-term durability. Reinforced hinge and back-pack attachment area. Case shell designed to withstand equalized pressure on the lid equivalent to the weight of an average person.
Made with military-specification Cordura® nylon, water-and-tear-resistant, and treated with Teflon® to reduce wear and scuffing. Long-lasting YKK zippers, 25mm zipper stitching support, synthetic thread, double-folded edging and upgraded through-bolted strap attachments (instead of sewn-on D-rings) to assure long life. Padding on underside reduces bumps to the instrument when the case is set down. Includes new expandable LieFlat™ music pocket, full-length rain flap and is replaceable.
5mm padding below instrument, 10mm lateral padding, four-point instrument suspension. Blanket padded with 5mm foam.
