We are excited to announce a partnership between The Walk to Fisterra and Musilia, a company based in Frankfurt, Germany specializing in the design and manufacturing of remarkably strong and light-weight carbon fiber instrument cases. New technologies and carbon forming processes allow Musilia to produce a line of carbon fiber cases that will withstand the rigors of travel and protect valuable instruments from damage in even the most stressful situations.

Dane will be carrying Musilia's lightest cello case, the S3 Cello Case, on his trek through Spain. Musilia designed this case specially for The Walk to Fisterra -- the outside of the case is white so it will take in the least amount of light during long sunny days on the trail, and it has a backpack system that attaches to the case so Dane can carry the gear he needs for the trip.

Musilia cases were designed by a professional cellist from a family of cellists, and have addressed all the familiar issues: weight, safety, nonstandard dimensions, ease of carrying, and even the irritating noise of rattling hardware. Musilia cases are engineered from scratch to provide unsurpassed protection for the instrument and a new level of comfort for the player. All this and more in one of the lightest cases available anywhere.
