INTRODUCING LIEVISSIMA EVOLUTION!

The first ultra-lightweight Lievissima was a challenge for Musafia: how to match the weight of carbon fiber cases using wood laminate, but WITH a protective cover and thermal insulation? And offer better all-around protection at a competitive price?

Since its introduction in the Fall of 2014, we’ve been tirelessly working on it to make Lievissima truly unbeatable. The interior design was further refined, the linings upgraded, the shoulder rest position optimized, the strap handles are now in real leather… but now we’re ready for the quantum leap: Lievissima Evolution.

 With Lievissima Evo we doubled the thickness of the thermal insulation (the cover is now truly super padded) to the point of it now providing protection against even substantial bumps, and did away with the sewn exterior borders for a new smooth, rounded, modern borderless look, making an aftermarket slip-on insulation cover no longer necessary even for rigid climes. And guess what: Lievissima Evo is even lighter still! A dart-shape model S1911 weighs in fact consistently less than the declared 1.9 kg/ 4.18 lbs., and we guarantee that in writing.   

Lievissima Evolution is here to prove that you don't have to accept the disadvantages of Carbon Fiber or thermoplastics (poor thermal insulation, limited violin safety, delicate exterior) to enjoy an ultra light weight case which actually offers superior protection to your violin!

Take a close look at it - no other case offers so many qualities, and it's surprisingly affordable as well! The extremely light weight of the Continuum High Tensile construction, the safety offered by the six-ply lamination with the monolithic gluing process and four-point Offset Plane Suspension System™, the insulation from heat and cold offered by thermal insulation, the quality of construction of Mr. Musafia's workshop with 35 years of experience, the protection of SATRAVI® certified instrument protection, a truly plush interior, the peace of mind offered by the unique lifetime limited warranty, maintenance and repair services, and every Musafia's high resale value.

Offered in rectangular and dart-shape, both with or without high-capacity extra large music pocket (measuring cm 48 x 26, or 19 x 10 inches). All models (except the double case) include an elastic in the scroll area to hold string packets, business cards, etc.

When compared to a Carbon Fiber case of similar ultra light weight, LIEVISSIMA EVOLUTION has quite a few distinct advantages:

O   NEW DOUBLE THICKNESS thermal insulation layer

O   Includes protective case cover (replaceable) with available pocket

O   NEW SMOOTH, ROUNDED, MODERN borderless look

O   Lighter than many carbon fiber cases without  a cover

O   Shell can withstand up to 80 kg. pressure without damaging the violin inside

O   Tested superior resistance to temperature and humidity changes

O   Plush, roomy interior with closing accessory compartment

O   Crash-tested 4-point Offset Plane ™ suspension system

O   Patented SoftTouch rubbery self-locking bow holders

O   SuperComfort computer-bag style soft leather strap handles

O   Subway strap (replaceable)

O   100% made in Cremona, Italy

O   Lifetime limited warranty

O   Musafia quality and after-sales service

LIEVISSIMA EVOLUTION allows you to decide which accessories and features you need and which you don't, so you don't have to pay for the ones you can do without, nor carry their weight around. For example, straps are not included: you can order LIEVISSIMA EVO with a normal shoulder strap, two normal straps that also permit backpack use, choose padded straps instead of the normal ones- or no straps at all, if you already have them!

Offered in both ultra-compact rectangular and the even smaller dart-shape formats, with or without enlarged size music pocket.

Compare LIEVISSIMA EVO with ANY other ultralight case available today - we think you will be surprised.

Please note: maximum bow length accommodated in the ultra-compact Lievissima rectangular case is 75.0 cm. No limitation for the dart-shape version.
