Comments about Protec MAX Contoured Tenor Saxophone Case:

I have a Mark VI tenor 220.000 serial when I bought it it was in mint condition, since I bought this case I have 3 dents in the body by the neckstrap holder and 2 lower down the body. I have not taken this out of this case except just to practice and put it back in my closet. When I pick this case up I can feel my horn moving around, which I never felt in my other heavy duty protec case. Yes its lighter but like I said it has dented my horn. Dont buy it does not fit mark Vi s, although they claim it does. I will be returning this case asap.

    Comments about Protec MAX Contoured Tenor Saxophone Case:

    It's way better than a gig bag. fits my Selmer MK 6 perfect.
    Probably wouldn't check it on a flight but I'm loving the light weight. Not built the greatest but heck at the price, if it wears out in a couple of years I'll buy another

      Comments about Protec MAX Contoured Tenor Saxophone Case:

      I have been a fan of ProTec sax gig cases for over ten years, and the newer models seem to keep getting better. However, this Max bag, which is noticeably lighter, is the lower cost option and may not be as sturdy as my other earlier model ProTec cases. The earlier model cases (wood construction, I think) featured rows of reinforcing screws along the zipper line. There are no such screws on the Max, maybe they aren't necessary? I will reserve judgment for now. The WWBW listing is misleading. It states that this bag is compatible with ProTec backpack straps sold separately, and this prompted me to buy them separately. However, the Max case already has built-in back straps concealed in a zip flap. The separate backpack strap that I bought did not go to waste, it is in use on my earlier model cases that are compatible with this strap. However, the WWBW catalog listing is misleading. Don't buy straps separately, you won't need them if this is the only case you will own. I will need to see how this case holds up to usual gig abuse before I decide how sturdy it really is.

      Great Gig Bag. No break in needed.

      Comments about Protec MAX Contoured Tenor Saxophone Case:

      This case is so light you have to feel it to believe it. Unlike the other reviews, my horn fits like the case was made for it, no break in required. I have an Allora, Paris series, Tenor (which I also purchased from WWBW). The foam padding is thick, and provides outstanding protection for my horn. The outer shell is heavy duty nylon which will endure all the rigors of "gig life". I have had my bag almost a year and it looks like new. I like the mouthpiece storage inside the case. Some bags only store the sax and neck in the case. The zippered storage area on the side of the case is large, and holds all my "extras" with room to spare. It came with a detachable shoulder strap. Backpack straps are attached and hidden by a flap which is secured with velcro. If you are looking for an extremely light gig bag that is rugged, gives excellent protection and has lots of storage - you have to try this bag.

      Comments about Protec MAX Contoured Tenor Saxophone Case:

      Received the case, and wow it is light! I have a Yamaha Z Custom and the sax fits, does need some breaking in though. (Check out the other review). Overall happy with the weight of the case, lighter than my alto Pro Protec. Thought I would try the Max, can't beat the price for a good light flight case.

      Gotta Break It In

      By 

      from San Lorenzo, California

      Comments about Protec MAX Contoured Tenor Saxophone Case:

      Upon receiving this product in the mail, I was immediately struck positively by how light it was in comparison to my previous case, for an Intermediate model Yamaha (I cannot remember the model). It was thus to my great dismay when i attempted to place the saxophone inside the case to discover it did not quite fit. I was almost ready to return the product when my father pointed out to me that it was made of firm foam, meaning it would gradually mold to fit the shape of the saxophone if one was to bend the case a little at first. Having done this, I decided to keep the case, but be forewarned that there is a certain amount of breaking in that must be done with this case in order for it to work. Now that I have used the case for a while, it is perfectly fine for my purposes.
