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.

Contrasting colors and innovative design, including a unique artistic hand-cut Modernist profile created in the lid personally by Mr. Musafia, of which no two are alike - abstractly recalling the unpredictable, non-linear formation of folds and wrinkles in the padding surrounding the violin - make this case stand out in a crowd… but only while it’s open. On the outside, like all Musafia cases the GIL SHARON BY MUSAFIA is purposefully nondescript to avoid attracting unwanted attention.

The GIL SHARON BY MUSAFIA isn’t just another artists’ testimonial product. Mr. Sharon, who purchased example no. 1 (the one in the photos), in fact receives no compensation for his association with this project: proceeds are donated to Friends of Stradivari, an organization chartered for preserving the legacy of the art of Cremona violin making.

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.
