I am looking at getting a case for my tenor to use until I can get my original restored.(mark vi tri-pack) I have seen plenty of ones from wxd. my questions are: will a mark vi fit in them, and what is the quality? any help would be greatly appreciated.
Zippers take longer and more dedicated effort to open or close. I've owned two zip-up cases, my Protec and the case that came with a P. Mauriat that I bought and sold. I much prefer my Hiscox (alto), and pretty much all my vintage latch cases. My King Zephyr case has those cool spring-loaded latches you flick to one side to open. Someone should make those again.
I used to be a fan of hard, boxy vintage cases but my Protec is really growing on me. It is a lot more comfortable to carry around and so far has provided 100% protection from evil. If you have to lug your horn around for more than a mile, get the backpack straps, total game-changer. I was going to restore the original case for my king, but why bother unless I wanted to sell?
