|Dimitri Musafia started making cases in 1983 with the LUXURY MODEL, and in doing so created a unique style which has indisputably influenced the design of violin cases world-wide. The gracefully balanced interior shape, rope cording, quilted padding and beige-on-color chromatic scheme have now all been more or less adapted by all other case manufacturers, not to mention those who have shamelessly copied the entire model itself.|
Copying the style at a superficial level however does not mean reproducing the quality, and the fact that this model continues to be the best-selling Musafia Cremona Italy case despite the abundance of cheap "Musafia clones" is proof enough. Evidently only those who have been building this case for almost three decades really know how to make a case of this time-proven quality.
Just touching the plush silk velvet lining with your fingertips will confirm that it is simply without equal in terms of plushness and offers minimum abrasion to the varnish of even the most important instrument. The design offers generous placement of both thick padding and impact-absorbing foam for further protection. If so many people went to such lengths to copy the Musafia LUXURY MODEL, there must have been good reason.
This line is built in Luxury Classic and Luxury Ultralight versions. Available in classic oblong, rectangular ultra-light and dart shape formats, for the violin and for the viola, as well as for two violins and violin plus viola.
Please note: maximum bow length accommodated in the ultra-compact Luxury Ultralight U3012 violin case is 75 cm, and 75.5 cm for the U3022 viola case. The maximum width for violas in the Luxury Ultralight U3022 is 25.8cm. There are no limitations for the other Luxury Model cases.
