Love my borg jubilee case but might get another to replace it.I think a Jacob Winter fibre glass case would fit,had 2 and like them and they fitted the mauriat 66rul which has a larger bell.Want to stick to a shaped case so hiscox is out.I had to sell my month old Bam Cabin case when i got the borg.What you guys using.

I use the stock blue leather case with three clasps - similar in other regards to the one in Liam's post.

I'd be interested to learn of other options but I'm satisfied with the current setup.

Stock case is very good on Borgonis. That is what I'm using for tenor. Only thing I don't like on mine are the clasps. They're plastic and don't open/close easy. I have Bam HiTech case for my alto. That's also a very good case.

The clasps on my tenor case open a bit too easily. When traveling, I often put a strap 'round the case to make sure that it doesn't pop open if someone pulls the case out of a tight space. Paranoid, I'm sure, as I've never seen any of the clasps pop open by themselves. Better careful, tho', rather than have to pick up my lovely horn from an unfriendly floor.

A friend of mine in college played a Borgani and he had that same older style case. I always thought it looked great, in fact I was always trying to get him to sell me just the case.

My Borg fits nicely in a Walt Johnson
Is that a Walt made for a Selmer or other? I no longer have my WJ case but I'd be surprised that it fits a Jubilee.

The "Old Style" Borgani cloth covered case, as illustrated, gives excellent protection , and will take a crook / mouthpiece in a soft bag in the bell, and even a leather strap- so far so good.
Only issue I find is that any other accessories have to be placed in the soft canvas outer zipped pocket, which is not substantial, and items can easily get crushed.

Overall, the main bonus is that these cases are strong, light, obviously fit Borgs perfectly, and are very compact, ( some people think my tenor case holds an alto!) , so why even think of a change ?

The WJ fits my MKvi and my 2010 Borg Jubilee. It also fit a Conn 30m that I owned. I was surprised that it fit the Conn and Borg since they have significantly different shapes but it works perfectly for both

Been there, done that. A soprano is not an acceptable substitute for a tenor.

Tenor - It's all that matters.

My Borg did not come with an original case. I use one of the Selmer carbon fibre flight cases with the zipper. Fit's like a glove.
