I am waiting for my New Aristo alto to arrive, and upon recommendation from members here, I may also be getting a new case. I am not familiar with the world of sax cases since I have always just used a stock case. What I am looking for is a contoured alto case, with a hard exterior. I also want a seperate slot for the neck and mouthpiece, and space for extra goodies like reeds, a neckstrap, a swab, backup moutpieces, extra ligs, etc. Something like the SKB deluxe tenor case, but for alto (I don't think the SKB deluxe alto case has a seperate space for the mouthpiece). It needs to be able to fit split bell keys, and of course, it needs to protect my sax well. Any help would be appreciated.

If you're in Europe try finding a Hiscox. Otherwise a Protec contoured case will fit it fine. The new Protecs will have an inside slot for the neck and mouthpiece and I keep a True Tone in one which is decent protection for gigging.

Aren't the Protecs soft though (I would prefer a hard case just for the extra protection)? Oh yeah, is there any way I would get a Hiscox in the US? I've been looking at them, and they seem rather nice.

Oh nvm, the protecs have a hard interior. I'd actually prefer a hard exterior, just for looks, but frankly, it doesn't really matter that much.

have you considered a walt johnson case, I cant remember if they have the slot for the neck an piece, but they are extremely durrable. Also, BAM makes a nice contoured case.

Those seem pretty expensive. Nothing over $200 since I can't justify spending that much on a case.
