That one should work as the New King is the older design with a smaller bell...The newer models might not fit that case. SKB cases are a little better in my opinion...the outer shell material is tougher.

I was almost into getting a SKB case for me, like SKB-450, but while researching for this model reviews I came across a couple of issues that may actually avert me from getting it and continue my quest for a tenor case:

#1 - Some person recommended not leaving it in the hot car outside. Obviously he did and his case is now warped because of the heat.
#2 - This model uses pretty hard interior made from polystyrene, not foam. That can break the key posts when the case is dropped. Here's the link: http://forum.saxontheweb.net/showthread.php?232-What-s-the-scoop-on-the-SKB-450-tenor-sax-case


What about ProTec XL cases?

I checked two models - the regular tenor and extra large, but not sure which one should be a good fit for my Keilwerth:

Any thoughts/recommendations? Thanks.

Actually I just did some measurements and the bell on my Keilwerth is exactly 7 inches in diameter which is a larger bell, I think. It may need an XL version of Pro Pac Case - PB305CTXL

My Keilwerth SX90 fits in a Gator hard-shell bag. Aside from the grey rectangular case the horn came in, Gator is the only one I found that fit it well.
