7 Names you won't give your New Violin or Viola Cushy!

Posted by James Engman on Aug 26, 2015 3:00:00 PM

It's a CUSHY case cover, and it just wants to give you and your instrument a hug.

     The new and improved CUSHY© Deluxe Carry-All™ Backpack Case Covers are now available to fit over violin and viola, shaped and oblong cases! Our top product designers teamed up with leading backpack manufacturers to bring you a quality product that optimizes comfort, protection, and durability. It shouldn’t be a mystery why "CUSHY" is an appropriate name for these bodacious guardians of your precious cargo. They, like a forcefield of cushy goodness, repel the forces of nature that seek to destroy your instrument and wear out your case. All the while, it offers you a warm and soft embrace, making your commute comfortable and hands-free. However, here’s a few names we did NOT give to The CUSHY© and why:


1. The Squishy 


Nobody wants squishy shoes, they want cushy shoes. Squishy shoes is what happens when you step into a rain-filled pothole and spend the rest of the day hoping you don’t get trench foot. Cushy shoes offer comfort and protection for your feet and joints, whether walking for a long distance or experiencing high-impact. CUSHY© case covers are soft, so everything your body touches is padded – no more straps cutting into your shoulders or uncomfortable hardware putting pressure on your back. Not just for comfort, the cushioning is added protection against falls or impacts. Plus, now featuring a Duracover© exterior that is waterproof, the CUSHY© case padding will never become squishy, nor will its contents.

2. The Flashy

The CUSHY© is all about functionality and features that will last a career of regular use and never go out of style. We're not saying that bedazzling it and covering it in pins is tacky, we're just leaving that for you to decide...

3. The Softy

Many other case covers are made of silky nylon that wear and tear from regular use. The Duracover© exterior is rough and tough, and all seams are reinforced so that you can rely on the CUSHY for years and years of daily use. Rubber pads are added for wear protection and to keep your instrument from sliding around when set on a smooth surface. Fill it with sand and hang it from the ceiling and I bet you have a pretty good punching bag!


4. The Puffy

If you grew up in an area with four seasons, then you know that big bulky winter coats are no fun to try to move around in or to put away in closets or lockers. Luckily, modern materials now offer more insulation with less bulk. We carefully considered the best amount of insulated padding to offer optimal heat and cold protection without being unwieldy. Plus, being able to quickly and easily conceal the backpack straps makes the CUSHY cover easier to carry in hand or store in tight spaces.










5. The Empty

This means that they aren’t just a highly protective violin backpack or viola backpack, but a new and ingenious form of transport that fits your case, stand, sheetmusic, accessories, and anything else you plan to put in it. Have a few text books or a bicycle repair kit, why not throw it in there? The CUSHY backpack is as strong and confortable as a quality hiking backpack, so that you can manage it all. It may be empty when you receive it, but it won’t be for long!

6. The Slippy

The CUSHY has ergonomically shaped straps with thoughtfully selected connection points, plus a chest clasp to keep your instrument comfortably high up on your back. Rather than slipping off your shoulders as you carry all of your equipment, the Cushy hugs you securely. Did we already mention the rubber skid pads?


7. The Fancy

The CUSHY’s are definitely the highest quality case covers you can get, but “fancy” tends to be a word that correlates to high prices! The Cushy cases are all well under $100! Plus, they are not tricky to use. Unzip the pocket, put your case inside, and zip it back up – it’s that easy. No fancy-schmancy instructions or complicated fitting required. You can even open your case while it’s inside the CUSHY©.
