I bought this case because of SKB's reputation, and that most people can't afford $800 for a BAM case. The Walt Johnson bari cases have had problems in the past, so I avoid them. I play a Low A Mark VI and if you need a safe way to transport your horn, this case definitely does the job well. While I wouldn't recommend dropping your instrument off a building, I've bumped into plenty of things without any damage to my horn (or the case). Pros: -Wheels make it easier to move -Case can take some hits and still protect your horn -clasps never open by accident, TSA lock is a plus Cons: -It's pretty big...however, bigger in this case means more protection. -Handle placement...top handle is clearly meant as a grip to roll it... the middle handle is slightly off balance. Overall, I'm very happy with this case and would reommend it to anyone looking to better protect their instrument for regular transport. If you're looking to check it on an airplane, I would go for the BAM.

Overall this is a great case, it is vary durable and holds my sax in place. The weels are really nice too. But... I found that the top handle is not placed well, so i couldn't easily carry it like a normal case if i needed too without the case dragging on the ground. It also had to be modified to fit a low Bb bari because the bell space was not wide enough, it did not fit my martin or my mark VI bari until we cut a deeper slot. There isent a single storage compartment, and taht is also a problem. But all in all a good sturdy case, just really with these things where added.

    Comments about SKB Model 455W Universal Baritone Sax Case with Wheels:

    The original case for my selmer super action 80 series II Bari was starting to fall apart so I was in the market for a new one. I was looking at a case that was around 1k until someone recommended this very affordable case. I was told before hand that my Bari would fit, as I heard not all do and really didn't want to spend a thousand dollars but needed something to protect a very expensive horn. When the case arrived the horn did fit perfectly and has a space for a mouth piece and the neck which my original case did not have. The case seems very strong and I like the locks. The only reason I didn't give the full 5 stars is because the case does have one flaw which I did read about in other reviews. When you are rolling the case on its wheels, no problem. But when you carry the case the other handle is not positioned correctly and the case leans back. It would be nice for it to be corrected because the case is so good and it isn't enough for me to return it. Also when rolling the case and wheels are wide enough that case doesn't tip over. Great value for the $.

        This case was bought for a Selmer Paris Series II baritone saxophone, and it fits the instrument remarkably well. We bought it to replace the Selmer vanguard case that came with the instrument originally. It seems very sturdy, and it's latches are built to last. Highly recommended!

        It seems like a good case, but did not fit my low A, Cannonball Stone Bell Bari Sax.

        Comments about SKB Model 455W Universal Baritone Sax Case with Wheels:

        At least in my case, since I bought a "Mint" used specimen which proved not to have wheels. It also, as a review (perhaps by the person who returned the case) should have warned me, doesn't fit my low Bb bari, which I purchased used to replace the heavier low A I planned to give to a charity. Since the new case fits the low A, which fits my stand as the low Bb doesn't , I've decided to donate the latter horn instead and work at muscling up.

        Does not fit low A models, insufficient storage

        Comments about SKB Model 455W Universal Baritone Sax Case with Wheels:

        I was very disappointed by the manufacturers false claims that this fist standard low A saxophones such as Yamaha. Not so. It does not fit the majority of low A models, including the (quite standard) YBS-62. The case appeared to be relatively good quality, but did not have enough storage for essentials (such as a jazz and classical mouthpiece, full size pencil or snake swab.)

        Excellent Value! Fits my YBS61

        Comments about SKB Model 455W Universal Baritone Sax Case with Wheels:

        I just recently bought an old Yamaha YBS-61 bari and this case fits great with it! I have read mixed reviews saying that it won't fit the YBS-62, but others saying it will. One of the biggest factors in my decision to buy this case is the wheels on the bottom, It's incredibly convenient to have them. Some say that the storage space is lacking, but what I do is store all of my equipment in a purple Crown Royal bag and tuck it in the big space at the bottom of the case under the horn. It still all fits with the instrument inside! The only minor drawback is, the top handle isn't the best balanced, it could be placed more in the center, but otherwise I'm not hesitant at all to check my bari in a flight! After all, it does have a TSA approved lock too.

        Comments about SKB Model 455W Universal Baritone Sax Case with Wheels:

        I bought this case because of SKB's reputation, and that most people can't afford $800 for a BAM case. The Walt Johnson bari cases have had problems in the past, so I avoid them. I play a Low A Mark VI and if you need a safe way to transport your horn, this case definitely does the job well. While I wouldn't recommend dropping your instrument off a building, I've bumped into plenty of things without any damage to my horn (or the case). Pros: -Wheels make it easier to move -Case can take some hits and still protect your horn -clasps never open by accident, TSA lock is a plus Cons: -It's pretty big...however, bigger in this case means more protection. -Handle placement...top handle is clearly meant as a grip to roll it... the middle handle is slightly off balance.

If you're looking to check it on an airplane, I would go for the BAM.

        This case does not fit any Conn Bari saxes. I tried a 12M Bb, a 11M A, and a New Wonder II Chu, and none of them fit. Other than that it looks like a good case.
