Using the same visual design as the Pro-II, the Artist range has all of the features of the Pro-II with the following added benefits :
- The outer shell is 25% thicker than the Pro II giving an impact resistance to puncture of twice ( x 2 ) that of the Pro II range.
- The Artist aluminium is fully hardened greatly increasing the stiffness of the aluminium 'band' around the case.
- Deluxe velour used for the case lining
- Larger steel lock and catches
- Full leather carrying handle

Our quality hardshell cases protect your musical instruments. They are tough, lightweight, thermally insulated and made in the UK. The choice of leading musicians worldwide. Our LiteFlite technology is what makes a Hiscox, a Hiscox.
Unique "Liteflite" Construction
The criteria for the design called for the construction of the very best lightweight cases possible, encompassing the use of the finest modern materials. The result is a range of cases manufactured using a unique composite double moulded construction which gives unparalleled protection for your instrument from a lightweight case with a low/medium retail price range.
The construction consists of a moulded, high impact resistant A.B.S. plastic outer shell, bonded directly to an inner moulding manufactured from a unique blend of 'High Tech' cellular foam. This inner moulding is feather light and, being semi-rigid, is designed to soak up impact shocks from the outside world. The UNIQUE bonding of the inner moulding to the outer shell gives unbeatable, total structural rigidity which is UNMATCHED BY ANY OTHER CASE IN THE WORLD in our price range.
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, (A.B.S.) due to it's unique balance of properties, produces mouldings which have strength, toughness and rigidity over a wide temperature range. These characteristics make it first choice for applications throughout manufacturing businesses world-wide, from computer housings to motor car bumpers and of course, Hiscox Cases!
The case lining is completed with a crushed velvet type fabric of different grades depending on case type. This is bonded directly onto the shaped foam moulding giving a neatly tailored luxurious feel, perfectly fitted every time.
The aluminium valance is unique to Hiscox Cases. It's design not only increases the rigidity of the case, but ensures a positive location of lid to base when the two halves are closed. Unlike any other case available on the market, the valance extends deep inside the case behind the plastic shell, into which all the hardware (handles, catches, hinges etc.) is riveted. This method of fixing greatly reduces the possibility of fittings working loose.
