The Fibreglass cases are stylish, extremely strong & rigid. They come with padded detachable double back-pack straps. Most shaped cases are made from ABS plastic, not as strong as fibreglass and without the high gloss finish. (Players who liked the Berkeley fibreglass cases are going to love these.)

It fits all modern standard bell saxes, but not the larger bell Keilwerth, P.Mauriat or Cannonball. A padded neck bag is supplied to store the neck in the bell whilst in transit.

"Great for Travelling."
Mark David
I bought one of these as I had my first overseas gig coming up - a set with a DJ in Ibiza. I was going to be using my mark 1 Yamaha 62 Alto which still has its original big, heavy rectangular case. I was anxious about being able to take the horn on the aircraft as carry-on luggage. There was no way I was going to check it into hold luggage. I opted for the red case which does cut quite a dash! The hardware is in a dark pewter type metal which looks great against the red. All of the fittings are very sturdy and seem like they will be tough and durable. There are D-ring attachments all over the place enabling a variety of options for carrying by shoulder strap or as a back-pack. The case also comes with two comfortable and substantial straps. The lip of both halves of the shell is in a rigid rubber like material and interlocks when the case is shut. I doubt that it is completely waterproof but it would take a pretty determined splash of water to get through. I would certainly expect that it is showerproof. Inside the case the first impression is that it is quite thin and not very padded compared to some cases. Being of fibreglass though it is extremely rigid and I am sure that it would take a very hard impact to cause any damage to the horn inside. Likewise, I suspect that the padding is quite sufficient to provide adequate protection for all but the heaviest impact or drop. Space inside is, inevitably, a bit limited. I was a bit worried that the case wouldnt accept my purple logo YAS62 as it has the old-style one piece bell to bow keyguard. No need to worry - it fits perfectly. There is a little pocket built into the inside of the case with a Velcro fastened lid which is just big enough to take a mouthpiece and 4-reed reed case. A separate pouch is supplied for you to bung your crook and any other bits and bobs in. I found this a bit stiff and not all that easy to use so I use a cotton shoe-bag which holds the crook and my cork-grease. I find that there is plenty of room up the bell for that and my strap. Ive even managed to stash my AKG clip on mic in there as well but youd struggle to get anything else in the case. perhaps not the ideal case if you are the sort of player who likes to cart several mouthpieces and a fistful of accessories around to every gig but adequate for most. Im happy to report that the case was accepted without any problem as carry-on by the airline. The fact that it is obviously a saxophone case (and thereby identified me as a musician) did lead to me being pulled to one side by security in Ibiza airport and the case being swabbed for traces of drugs! Its a small price to pay for being able to tart around a departure lounge posing as an international musician! Nothing to declare except some bangin choons my good man.. All in all an excellent case for the gigging musician and good value for money. Highly recommended.
