Delta also wrote the following clarification to a violinist traveller:

Dear Ms. Goldman,

Thank you for your e-mail to Delta Air Lines.

Effective April 1, 2007, Delta will allow passengers traveling with a
violin or smaller musical instrument to carry-on the item as part of
their free carry-on allowance. Musical instruments must be placed in the
overhead compartment or approved stowage location in the cabin. If
adequate space is not available, the item needs to be checked.

This letter was sent to the American Federation of Musicians. You can print the letter, as well as the policy from the airline you are flying, and put it in your instrument case, just in case you need it at the airport.
