I can't speak specifically to the alto cases, but I'm off SKB cases in general. I have found that the cases and racks that I've purchased have had inferior latching systems. Their butterfly latches are really bad for long term, professional use. I've also had handles pull out of several cases, specifically the rolling equipment cases. If the case is not going to get heavy duty road use, then you will probably be ok, otherwise I would look to another manufacturer.
