A Toyota Corolla锟斤拷
Also the Mazda 2. It was designed by Ryo Yanagisawa. And the boot is just the right size for a tenor sax.

But seriously, a Protec is less than half the price of a BAM and has spaces for the neck and mouthpiece, so you don't have to store them in the bell. My Yani fits fine.

I personally prefer rectangular cases to contoured due to all the extra storage space. Great for gigging around town. But I'd get something different for air travel.

Where will you be taking this case, Russell, and what else needs to go in it? My rectangular case has an outside pouch with room for my book and a flute. That plus my in-bell sax stand means the only other thing I have to carry is a music stand.

Thanks for all of the recommendations. I must say that the Mazda 2 is a little small for my liking. Lol I was having an issue finding a case because of the left side bell keys. However, I have ordered a Pro Tec that should do the trick. Thanks again for all of your help.

I've never seen a Yani tenor with left side bell keys. I thought they were all copies of a Mark VI. Could you post a picture of yours or a link to a picture of one? Thanks.

Yep, that's an oldie.

I'd try the SKB Pro (it has the fabric bag on the outside and a slot for the neck inside) as it fits perfectly my Conn 10M. The old Yani looks much like a knockoff 10M cross-bred with a "The" Martin.

i was always curious about these horns(t3), but not enough to buy one. i think peter hales also has a website with more pics, but i can't remember what it's called. here's a little info on the 3

Interesting - many thanks guys. There must not be all that many of these T3's out there. I don't think I've run across one before. Visually it reminds me of a Martin and the right-hand stack key touches look very strangely placed. Do they blow more like vintage American horns or like vintage Selmers?

It has a lot of features from both the 10M and the Martin

More Martin than 10M

Blows like an American - really big sound, more spread than a selmer, more focused than a 10M. I went through a lot of necks on my T3. There were a lot of intonation issues with the original neck. I ended up fitting a Super 20 Neck on the horn and that really matched the horn well.

It took me a long time to find a horn to replace my T3. Pinky key table placement is an issue on this horn. Great mechanism, copies the 10M but terrible placement. I loved the low end so much that many things just fell short for me. I ended up on an early BA
