Anyone know of a good alto sax/clarinet case on the market? I’ve been looking, but to no avail. It would make things much easier not having to drag my arsenal of cases around all the time.

I haven't seen one advertised for a very long time. They used to make a traypack case a long time ago.
There are tons of double cases out there but they are for 'same' instruments. ie..A/Bb clarinets, flute/pic, trumpets...
Not so much if you want to 'mix and match'.
You may have to find an old tenor case and do a little experimenting with swapping around the guts.

Biscuit: You may want to reconsider your comment that it would make things easier for you. Over the years, I found that double-cases (I even had a triple-case; and the old Selmer tray-packs were really triple cases . . . alto, clarinet, flute) became very heavy the further you had to carry them. PLUS, I found it easier to carry three separate smaller cases than to lug one large and heavy case around; and they seemed to store more easily in a car trunk of limited size. Each system has it's advantages, but the year I had to carry my triple-horn (sop, alto, clarinet) case around the Sacramento Jubilee taught me a painful lesson. Same with the Selmer tray-pack - it has long been stored in my attic. DAVE
