I am in a successful rock band, and am going to need the best heavy duty road cases for my woodwinds. I have a Soprano sax (straight with two necks), an Alto sax (Selmer Series II), a tenor sax (Yamaha Custom), flute (an upper end Yamaha), and a clarinet. Any suggestions. I would like to use as few cases as possible (I have a treypak for my alto, flute and clarinet), but the cases being heavy duty and the instrument protection is the most important. Any suggestions?

ATA cases that are custom fitted to your regular case (case within a case) is probably the best, if not most inexpensive solution.

You should look into Calzone case company. I travel a lot and have a couple cases from them, they are the best I've found. You could fit all those axes in one case if you want to.

This doesn't answer your question directly, but maybe something to think about - Actually, at the moment (because of an experience travelling last month) I'm looking into over sized suitcases (with trolley) and am considering leaving my horn in a very lightweight case for daily use and packing the entire thing in a larger suitcase cushioned by my clothes for traveling. Then some of the items I usually would carry in my suitcase can go in my carry-on bag.

It seems to me that a soft case in a soft suitcase cushioned by soft things would work but would not give me the sense of security that an ATA case would. If I were you, I would get maybe 2 ATA cases, one the size of the treypack you already have and one that could fit the tenor and the sop together. There are of course several different ways to pair the instruments.

¡bam!

Tried many... Bam, Softpack is the best. They manufacture the Selmer cases but seem to be more comfortable. They protect very well the instrument and are easy to carry.

Go for BAM.

All the Best,
