          The case was on back order, but was shipped quickly.
          My Yamaha custom Z fits nice and snug inside and will be easy to use especially when having to fly to a gig. Thanks so much!

          Decent Case That Does What It's Supposed To

          By Austin-fgHio

          from New York, New York

          Comments about SKB-450 Professional Contoured Tenor Saxophone Case:

          I ordered this case for my YTS-62 and it fits snugly after some minor mushing/shaping of the interior foam. The case has a strong smell (I assume from the silica gel pack kept in the case) when you first get it, but it mostly goes away after airing out the case for a day or two. The case comes with a small bag suitable for storing a mouthpiece and a neckstrap or some small items in the bell of the sax. In the case there's a slot for the sax neck (mine fits great, but anything bigger than the Yamaha G1 neck might be a problem) and a small slot that can hold roughly one mouthpiece, one reed holder (4 reeds), and some cork grease. The case is fairly compact and easy enough to carry around, and there are hooks for a shoulder strap if you want to buy one. There's a small pouch on the outside of the case that I find pretty pointless, but it can hold a couple of packs of reeds. I feel safe enough putting the sax under a bus, but I might be wary of airline travel. The latches do not lock and while they are fairly snug I can imagine one of them accidentally coming undone (all three latches coming undone is probably unlikely). Last, but not least, the leather handle seems like it could wear down and need to be replaced after a couple of years.

          Amazing!!!

          By DRL

          from Hartford CT

          Comments about SKB-450 Professional Contoured Tenor Saxophone Case:

          I find that taking my tenor sax, soprano sax, clarinet and flute all to one gig is easily done by how light weight the case is and with the shoulder strap I can throw the case on by back and carry all four instruments in one load. It is also very durable.

          Cheap + Fits = Good Case

          By Clay Hackett

          from Washington, DC

          Comments about SKB-450 Professional Contoured Tenor Saxophone Case:

          I bought this case mainly because it fits my Keilwerth SX90 and doesn't cost a million bucks like a Walt Johnson does. It basically does everything I need it to do. It fits in a trunk, it goes over the shoulder easily, and it has enough space for two mouthpieces and a couple of boxes of reeds, as long as you're space conscious. The case also fits in overhead compartments on airplanes, which is great. The handle has become kind of tattered over the years, but who really cares anyway? It's a great case. It fits Keilwerths perfectly and it's cheap. Sounds like a good deal to me.

          A great case!

          By Timbrewolf

          from Houston, TX USA

          Comments about SKB-450 Professional Contoured Tenor Saxophone Case:

          I needed something more durable than my old Reunion Blues cordura gig bag that I had for my new Jupiter Artist Tenor. After seeing that it had been knocked over (again) while in it's case/bag, I decided to try this case. I've been impressed with it from day one. Yes, it's a little heavier than a gig bag, but the protection is worth it. The SKB cushion remains stationary on the strap, REGARDLESS of how long or short you have it! I was disappointed even more because I actually paid for SKB's strap!!! There's also a curious smell that emanates from the case. I've actually left the case open for a few days and it still hasn't gone away. Nothing nauseous, just annoying. The velcro closure on the case's outer compartment doesn't seem very secure, but I have yet to have anything fall out of it. It's also not very big. If you carry an emergency kit in your case--time to downsize! This case is easy to clean as well. A damp rag is usually all that's needed to keep it looking sleek. Hardware is solid and closes easily. Check out their (SKBs) warranty! It's a great case for the money and I highly recommend it!

          IF THE CASE FITS, BUY IT

          By Sir Jazz

          from NEW YORK

          Comments about SKB-450 Professional Contoured Tenor Saxophone Case:

          This case fits! Excellent! Durable construction, light weight, able to protect our instruments from car door slams, airport drops and player frustration kicks. Good padding. Padded neck compartment, secure latch system. Clever Outer pocket. Could use internal key or combo locking system. Shoulder strap a must! Price can't be beat! Pleasure to carry!

          Great Case

          By Josh-gFtJK

          from Victoville, CA

          Comments about SKB-450 Professional Contoured Tenor Saxophone Case:

          I love this case because of it's durability. I have, unfortunately, dropped my sax while it was in this case and nothing happened to it! I trust SKB enough that I use their cases on all my saxes and even on my flute and clarinet. These cases will take whatever you throw at them, literally. -Josh
