Accord: We can supply Accord cello cases, but no longer hold these in our own stock- We can supply only what Accord hold in their own stock at any given time, and we will not accept 'special orders'. This is due to the high demand and subsequent lengthy lead times offered by Accord. The prices for these are quoted in Euros only, to be converted into sterling on day of purchase. The available stock of cases from Accord is updated daily, so please do enquire.

Jakob Winter: The top models usually held in stock, other options/models to order: Double violin and combination violin/viola cases usually in stock.

Please Note: Our prices include VAT with no hidden extra costs. Many other apparently cheaper prices advertised do not always include VAT, so when making comparisons, bear this in mind please. ( VAT is currently 20% in the U.K.- buyers outside the EU can deduct this from the advertised purchase price, calculated by taking 1/6th off the total price). Our prices do not include delivery- we usually offer a 'next-day' courier service, but please confirm 'all-up' price before making payment- we charge delivery out at our cost, packing free. We also offer tax-free shopping for overseas personal customers. We ship world-wide. Please visit our 'Terms of Trade' page for further details.

We do not stock unbranded cases of inferior quality- nor do we use 'made-up' names for our case models- the reason this is sometimes done by others is purely to confuse the buyer, and mask the true pricing, making it impossible to compare prices easily. Hopefully you will find what you are looking for, but please ask if you require further information.

We try to hold all the products listed in stock. However, there are times when a particular model or colour is 'sold out' and stock delivery may vary from time to time. We will obtain a lead time for any case, at the time of placing an order, if it is not in stock.
