I am in need of a case that will fit an old Conn 26M ( alto). It has reverse Bell Keys so a case for a Modern horn wont fit right. Any suggestions? I don't wont a soft case as I want hard protection. Back-packable would be nice and so would a contoured case but most importantly it has to fit right.

A Pro-Tec should work. I had a 1925 Conn Chu alto with split bell keys and the Pro-Tec contoured case fit perfectly.

I have one for my 6M, and a 26M fits just fine. And unlike what some very misinformed people think about these, they ARE are hard shell case.

A Hiscox could be another good choice.

A Pro-tec will work. I went with a Kaces for my tenor (bell keys reversed). I had a similar thread when I was looking for a case recently. Both of these "look" like soft cases, but they're actually pretty rugged. Just my $.02.

Like everyone has mentioned here a Protect case will work just fine. I have an old Conn alto Sax and it fits nice and snug in the case; the keys on the bell aren't damaged a bit.

As you can see; with my case anyway, there is no place for the neck. You can put it in the storage compartment if you like, and if that bothers you get yourself a Rico neck pack to store it in the bell; that's what I do with the neck.
