Guys I have a dilemma.
I'm keen to get my purchase back to Australia but need some measurements. It turns out that the dimensions of a Tenor case are such that they are very close to the cutoff for USPS's basic service (79" maximum for 'length plus girth'). Any other service is just prohibitively expensive which means I will need to wait until my colleague or myself to be travelling to / from the USA.
So I need accurate dimensions.
Here's a thread which shows the saxophone and case:
If it is a Martin Indiana stencil then presumably the case will be the same (and should be obvious from the photo). If any of you have one (vintage 1955 or thereabouts) could you please measure the dimensions for me? Also if not too difficult take a weight measurement (though that's not so important since it is the lenth + girth limitation that is the limiting factor).
Your probably wondering why I don't just get someone to measure it - problem is it is in storage and the person looking after it for me is on the road most of the time.
