At its core, it's all about quality.


To ensure that we can meet this demand at all times and without compromise, we develop and manufacture GEWA Made in Germany string instruments and cases in-house. In Germany. In the Saxon "Musicon Valley".


Each instrument in our GERMANIA, GEORG WALTHER, MAESTRO RUBNER and MAESTRO string series is carefully handcrafted in our master workshops. From the initial idea to the choice of wood to the finished instrument: with dedication and attention to detail, one work of art after another is created here. You can hear that and you can see it.


Even the higher class of our cases is designed and developed on site by our expert teams and manufactured by qualified professionals.


Careful selection of materials, traditional as well as state-of-the-art technologiy and the proverbial indestructibility of our cases have earned us an excellent reputation over the years among the leading musicians of the respective eras. A GEWA case accompanies you and your instrument for a lifetime. No matter where your path takes you, you can always rely on our cases, because we also care about your instrument.


At GEWA Made in Germany, tradition becomes the present.

THE legend par excellence.


Quality since 1925, no compromises since 1925.


There’s a reason that the JAEGER case is regarded as the epitome of solidity and sophistication. Only the most experienced craftspeople manufacture this almost indestructible gem in our Vogtland master workshops from hand-picked materials: exquisite outer covers made of carefully selected leather or fabric, fine cloth for the interior lining, heavy-duty precision fittings. Every single element is crafted with attention to detail.


All this makes it the humidor among cases, designed for much more than just storing instruments. It is a symbol. Whoever transports their instrument in a JAEGER is immediately taken seriously by musicians.


Countless travel anecdotes surround this case, told by virtuosos such as Frank Peter Zimmermann and many others for whom mastery is crucial in every respect.

Strato

The workhorse among the GEWA cases.


"Working musicians", i.e. musicians who are on the road a lot between rehearsals, concerts and lessons, want their cases to be reliably safe and not too heavy.


This is exactly what the
STRATO series was developed for. Its extremely light shell made of high-density polyfoam is enormously stable despite its low weight. The quality fittings are carefully handcrafted and 100% designed for functionality.

The Super Light Weight models of the STRATO series fully exploit the advantage of their light-weight shell construction. All components are optimised to this point, both the shells and the individual elements of the high-quality fittings, without losing sight of protecting the valuable instrument for even a moment.

For all those who place a little more value on a deluxe interior.

The DE LUXE models of the Strato series are finished with fine velvet plush on the inside. Compared to the Super Light Weight models, they weigh a little more, but are still very light overall.

Idea

We wanted the one perfect case. We wanted to combine our decades of experience in traditional case manufacturing with the best, most modern and most stable material we could get our hands on. A purely functional approach was important to us. This pragmatism is the recipe for success for this series.


The IDEA case literally acts as the bodyguard of the instrument and has quickly become the favourite of many musicians.

Air

The GEWA AIR series incorporates the best ideas, developments and innovations from decades of case manufacturing. Each case is a masterpiece of engineering art and at the same time, a fine piece of design.


All models are manufactured with the proprietary GEWA Air Shell Technology. It guarantees an enormously high resistance to breakage, as impacts are absorbed by slight deformation, similar to cars. In addition to this stability, the special manufacturing process ensures highly effective insulation against temperature fluctuations and weather. Due to the materials used, the cases are enormously light, despite their resistance.


In detail:

The outer skin and inner shell of the GEWA Air-Cases are moulded independently of each other. This results in tremendous possibilities for the surface design and interior decoration in the first production step.

Then the two shells are joined together in a special process using 2K foam under pressure. This separation means that neither mechanical loads nor temperature fluctuations can reach the valuable contents of the case, but the outer shell is still flexible enough to absorb shocks.


All models in the GEWA Air series have exceptional, valuable properties and are available in many different shapes, colours and designs.

The best thing that can happen to your instrument.

The GEWA Air series includes an extensive selection of beautiful cases for violin, viola and cello. The award-winning design alone makes this series completely unique. But as is so often the case, the true value is multi-layered. 

If you look deeper, you will find the inner values of every GEWA Air case underneath the stylish appearance: firstly, there is the GEWA Air Shell Technology, which has been proven time and again to perfectly protect the instruments and is what makes this series so unique and innovative. 

The combination of look and function is complemented by excellent fittings with high-quality features. These include - depending on the instrument type - the floating suspension system, the swivel-type bow holder and the mechanical neck pad, all developed and patented by GEWA. Of course, there are also plenty of comfortable carrying options, protective inner linings, combination locks for safe storage and other details that clearly show: 
GEWA Air is THE series for the protection of your stringed instrument.

Let us convince you too.

There is no need to talk about technical details with GEWA Air. The innovative Gewa Air Shell Technology and the excellent interior fittings of all models offer the highest comfort and safety for your instrument. Nothing better can happen to your instrument.

But musicians care about aesthetics. 

That is why the design of the Air Avantgarde models has been taken to a new level. 

Incident light is gently refracted in the mesh look of the hi-tech outer skin. The discreet shine appears modern in every colour variation, yet discreetly fine, and is rounded off in its excellence by the newly designed, hand-sewn perforated leather handle.

GEWA Air Avantgarde are the violin cases of the 21st century!

GEWA AIR ERGO is the perfect protection for the instrument AND the person carrying it.

 

Thanks to GEWA Air Shell Technology, we were able to create a case design that was previously unthinkable. A case was developed that is 100% optimised for ergonomic carrying.

Directly on the body, violin cases are usually carried in three different ways:

Upright: in the underground or on the bus, where there is never enough room.
Over the shoulder: e.g. on the way, on foot from home to rehearsal.
On the back: e.g. when cycling.

Together with the violinist Rainer Wilke, we took a close look at the most common challenges and looked for solutions.

1. Smaller people have to constantly lift their arm or shoulder when carrying the case upright so that it doesn't drag on the floor when they reposition it. 
Our solution: The underground handle is placed well below the top edge of the case so that it automatically lifts further off the ground.

2. No regular case can really be carried close to the body while hanging over the shoulder. The higher imbalance is transferred to the muscles and causes tension. 
Our solution: The shape of the ERGO is optimised to fit the body as comfortably as anatomically possible.

3. When cycling, the case often restricts head movement by blocking the helmet to the rear. This is annoying and dangerous.
Our solution: The open space on the handle gives the head enough room to move freely, even with a cycling helmet on.

The GEWA Air Ergo is the perfect case for urban users; mobile at all times, but still relaxed.

The GEWA Air Luthier series was developed in direct collaboration with luthiers and is also only exclusivelyavailable through them and not in other specialist shops. 

The basis was simply the naked case and lots of options. All details were discussed in detail with the experts and revised. The result is a case series that is optimally adapted to the needs of the string instrument making trade. 

It includes cases for violin, viola and cello, with first-class, partly patented features. In particular, the mechanically adjustable neck pad ensures that the case can be adapted exactly to your instrument. 

The modern design, in combination with the soft feel of our new Soft Touch surface, results in a simple elegance that more than does justice to the excellence of your precious instrument.

Don't be surprised if you come across a GEWA Air Luthier case the next time you visit your local luthier's workshop. It is the best thing that can happen to your instrument.

The Air Prestige line adds a breathtakingly elegant look to the GEWA Air portfolio.

The upper shell is covered with a leather-like hi-tech stretch material that gives the case its fine yet modern look. The look is completed by the hand-sewn handles made of genuine, colour-coordinated leather.

Of course, Air Prestige also offers the uncompromising protection and comfort that every model in the GEWA Air series promises.

For individuals.
