If you own a Conn New Wonder II tenor, a Radio Improved or New Large Bore tenor, a King Zephyr or Super 20, this is among the best cases for it. Of course, it also fits almost all modern saxophones as well.
The main reasons to buy this case (and I put my personal saxophones in them also) are as follows:
- It has just the right sort of foam padding on the inside. It is soft but form-fitting, which is the MAIN thing you want to protect your horn and keep it in good adjustment. Stiff, or overly roomy case interiors are the main things that damage saxophones and knock them out of adjustment.
- It is light but protective. Great size for packing with you on a trip, daily commute, or around campus somewhere. If you have been lugging your tenor around in its wooden hard case (like I did in college) you owe it to yourself to lighten your load by about 7-9 lbs by buying this case.
- The well-designed shoulder strap makes this case even lighter and easier to carry. Over the shoulder, the horn rests on your back, and feels almost like carrying nothing.
- Zipper is sturdy, there’s a place for the neck inside the case, and a place for a mouthpiece. The bottom of the case is non-slip.
If you want a case with more storage, look at the BAM Trekking or New Trekking (New Trekking holds a laptop). Both of those have more storage and backpack straps and are like a Softpack in most other respects.
If you want the tiniest and most elegant case ever designed, look at the BAM Cabine. But if you have a split bell keys Conn, Martin, or Buescher, it will only fit in the Softpack, not the Cabine.
