Sounds like you've purchased a unicorn figuratively and literally. I don't believe anybody makes an aftermarket case to fit a bari with a neck that's not removable, at least I've never seen one. Did you purchase this horn with the intent to play it or turn it into a lamp? The listings I see online would seem to indicate that these are of very limited utility as legitimate instruments. ???

I've bought a couple of canvas reunion blues type low Bb bari bags over the years. Even though they offer little protection, they may fit your horn.
its not really the the fact that it plays down to low Bb that im worried about. its the nonremovable neck that is the problem
I think what he's suggesting is that a gig bag may be a bit more flexible than a hard-sided case so you might be able to wrangle a horn with a fixed neck into it even though it's not specifically designed for that. It's not a bad idea. Most of those bags close with zippers and you may be able to close them in such a way that just the tip of the neck sticks out if it doesn't completely fit. It's likely your other options are to buy a custom case or heavily customize one yourself.
