BAM Peak Performance compact violin case features
BAM cases have a unique style, born from experience and leading-edge technology of the French business. This is why we find some essential elements even in the most affordable models!
An excellent protection inside and outside
Your violin will be just like in a real jewel case once placed in it. Indeed, BAM cases are completely covered with polyurethane foam developped specially to draughtproof fragile instruments. Not only does it offer an incredible resistance to any kind of bumps, but it is also perfectly insulated. Moreover, the outside cover made of Cordura 1000 Denier is both very resistant and improve even more the weather-proofing.
This foam designed by BAM has a surprising lifespan. In fact, its durability is such that it will return to its original shape and spring for a very long time!
In other words, your violin is not only protected from bumps but also from temperature fluctuations. These two factors are essential to save your instruments from a painful visit to the violin-maker!
Inside, we find the basic options, including a small compartment for accessories.
As for outside, we find two zipped compartments on the front. The highest one is designed for small electronical hardwares such as smartphones and batteries. It also has an opening especially for earphones. On the other hand, the biggest compartment is divided into two. Thus, you can safely store your laptop, tablet, music sheets, and even music stand.
On the side, you’ll notice a net to hold a water bottle (BAM gifts one with the case) but if you aren’t thirsty, you can use it differently. On the other side, there is a removable tube to store your bowas well as a zipped pocket for accessories.
Elastic bands will free your hands from bulkier objects.

My review on BAM Peak Performance compact violin case
Looking like a hiking backpack, this case seems to be prepared for anything. Thanks to its several storage compartments, this BAM case is great to stay organised and to travel anywhere easily. A case to offer to today’s musicians for them to easily carry around all they need even in the busiest of days.
The main feature of this case is that the bow tube is now on the outside. Therefore, the total length is 12cm smaller. It is a great solution when you take public transport or travel by plane or train where small is best.
