Bugger Tiffany! Check this out. The packaging of something much more valuable than stupid crystalline carbon. My cello now has a hard case and best of all, it is in that unmistakable Tiffany turquoise.
We now have a number of cello arrangements in our repertoire, which means taking the cello out into the big bad world, full of runaway forklifts and the like. Now I can pack it into the car without the fear of an Esky or suitcase smashing into the bridge. And it's waterproof, and I can put that moisture sucking stuff inside to keep the instrument and bow safe from mould and humidity. Took it out this evening to a cello jam with not one moment of anxiety. Bliss.
