Wouldn't recommend this case, the zips mean that any impact near the bell causes the top to move from the bottom. I have creased my bell twice because of this. Buy a torpedo bag instead!
The supplier responded:Thanks for your feedback. We'd be happy to raise this particular issue with ProTec if you pass on the details. In our experience we find the ProTec cases to be amongst the most protective yet portable cases on the market. Many of our staff members use them across a range of their own instruments but we take your comments onboard. It may depend a little on the fit of a particular model inside as well. The Torpedo cases also offer a great, if more expensive, option with a different weight and pocket system etc. We'd encourage any buyers to chat with us directly about the various pros and cons of different cases with respects to their particular instruments. Thanks again for your valuable feedback and thanks for using Dawkes Music.
