The case is fairly light weight and is lighter/easier to carry than the stock Yamaha screw bell case. Lots of storage for music folder, tuner, oil, etc. The horn is very well protected by the hard sides and generous foam padding. Converts easily from backpack to shoulder strap or use one of the two carrying handles. I looked at other cases but found them to be flimsy. Very generous in padding but short on rigidity and protection. Negative - no room to store 1 or two mutes.

In general, the case is designed fairly well (other than the fact that there's no room for mutes) and appears to be reasonably well made for the money. The horn compartment is well padded and the case is more rigid and offers more protection than, for example, the Marcus Bona flight case, which costs 3 times as much. There's also a music pocket in the back which will easily hold oversized folders, and a smallish compartment in the front for accessories.The BIG problem is the fact that it only fits horns with larger bodies and with bells that are cut relatively far down (closer to the rim). Specifically, the bell flare can't be more than 5 inches high, and the inner diameter at the screw ring must be at least 3 inches. As a result, neither my Paxman 25 (custom fitted with an E. Schmid screw ring), nor my Yamaha 668D will fit. Conversely, while the bell section is too small, the compartment that holds the body of the horn has too much room, allowing all but the largest horns to shift around in the case. Protec ought to either come up with a system for customizing the case to hold a wider variety of horns (by including movable pads, for example), or they should offer an alternate version for horns with taller bell flares.

A good case but it's not a backpack

By Nelson

from Mountain View, CA

Comments about Protec PRO PAC Screwbell French Horn Case:

I bought this case thinking it was a backpack. It came with one long strap and it isn't clear where to hook it. The case is also a bit larger than it needs to be. I have a Conn8d and there is a lot of empty space. I wish there were a way to zip the case down to a smaller size like the expansion zippers on luggage. Over all it is a very sturdy case and good protection for the horn, especially important now that my daughter is playing the horn too.

passable but not great

By B. A. Goodwin

from New York, NY

Comments about Protec PRO PAC Screwbell French Horn Case:

I got this case for my screw bell horn before college so I wouldn't need the factory suitcase style box. It does everything you would need a case to do - it is sturdy and easy to use with a large pocket for music, however the stitching easily comes loose and the zipper has ripped at the seam on the side. The main problems (besides quality control issues) are that there is no space for even a single mute and it is much too large.

Great case!

Comments about Protec PRO PAC Screwbell French Horn Case:

I love this case! It offers great protection for your horn and the extra pockets are nifty and really come in handy. It's fairly light as well. This is an awesome case all around. I would definitely recommend it.

Excellent Case!!!

By Ben Reidhead

from Colorado

Comments about Protec PRO PAC Screwbell French Horn Case:

This is an excellent case! The hard sides prevent nearly anything from denting the horn, and the body and bell of the horn are held very securely in the case by hard foam padding. I have no worries about my horn! You can carry the case in a multitude of ways, but the most convenient is with the backpack straps. There is ample space to carry music in. The front pocket of the case is large enough to carry a handful of pencils, oil, slide grease, and a spare mouthpiece. There is a very nice sorter for cards and pencils in the front pocket as well. A very, very nice case!

Good, BUT- Alex103s BEWARE!!

By Kurt-aIB-c

from Greater Hartford area, CT

Comments about Protec PRO PAC Screwbell French Horn Case:

Straps and Handles are convenient. Fantastic spacious rear pocket and handy front pouch. Well balanced when standing on side and bottom feet. Slung over one shoulder with single backpack strap, very natural and comfortable. Now to address the "Alex103" dilemma. I have a 1968 Alex 103 and had the bell cut in 1989 by a prominent Boston Horn Shop. I found that I could NOT fit my horn into this case. The leadpipe came out at a greater angle than the cutout of the case. My first and third F side slides also did not fit into the case! I tried repositioning the body of the horn every-which-way to no avail! Even with the slides pushed all the way in, it didn't fit! As I really liked everything else about the case, I decided to modify the inside of the case myself. I completed this by removing much of the velour, carving out the Styrofoam to fit my Alex, adding a thin layer of special foam to the bottom and sides and then regluing the velour back into place. My Alex now fits like a glove and no one would be able to tell that the case was modified!! A very snug fit and much better than new!! I would not suggest doing these modifications unless one is very handy and creative!! I believe that other horns would be perfectly fine in this case! In my opinion, the benefits and positive features of this case far outweighed the three hours of work it took to fit my Alex into it.

I Love it!

By Kyle-3cJdY

from Middle Tennessee

Comments about Protec PRO PAC Screwbell French Horn Case:

I just bought this case to house my new Yamaha 667D and it is great. I can keep everything I need in it, my tuner and metronome, my 5+ music folders, screwdrivers, and all my other stuff. I love the backpack straps for when I have to carry it long distances, not that it weighs all that much. Great buy!

This case is really great

By H-80A4C

from Honolulu

Comments about Protec PRO PAC Screwbell French Horn Case:

This case is just wonderful. After trying unsuccessfully to find a case that would meet my needs as a player (holds music, mouthpieces, etc) I found that this case is really exceptional. Despite the fact that it does not have space for a mute in the case itself, the case is still superior to most. The design provides a huge amount of padding to keep the horn as well as the bell very snug and safe. Overall, a really great case!

Not Bad for the Price!

By Jason-JDj4M

from Sioux Falls, SD

Comments about Protec PRO PAC Screwbell French Horn Case:

I bought this case just about a year ago now and I like it a lot. I was looking for something that would protect my horn, particularly the bell, securely, as well as hold a music folder and my horn stand. There is plenty of padding on this case and I don't worry at all about my bell getting damaged. This bag is tough and made very well. The pockets are roomy. The main zipper was a little tight around the corners right away, but it's okay now. It is also a little bigger than I anticipated, but that wasn't a big problem for me. No mutes would fit, but I bought a Pro-Tec Trumpet Mute Bag, which holds 3 of my mutes, straight, practice and stopped, plus other accessories and it just clips to the bag. Very nice! You can pay a lot more if you want to, but for me you can't get anything better at that price.
