    Default Contoured cases known to fit Cannonball Big Bell Stone Series saxophones

    I'm starting this thread to take some of the guesswork out of it for others.

    These cases DEFINITELY worked for me.

    Hiscox Proflite II alto and tenor
    Protec XL alto and tenor

    Please list other shaped/contoured cases that you know for a fact have worked. (I know at least one person using Rheuben Allen cases, but I don't know for which voices).

    The Rheuben Allen for alto and tenor fit the Big Bell CB's.

    "Kases" brand cases fit my BBSS Cannonball Tenor.

    Standard Pro Tec alto will NOT fit my big bell stone alto. So, my old Mk VII will stay in it....
    Covering the bari part- because no-one else owns one...
    Cannonball "Lady Godiva" Vintage, Selmer Ref 36 and Barone MAC 8 tenors; Cannonball Stone Series and Mk VII altos; Cannonball Stone series soprano and bari

    Cannonball has a compact lightweight case as well made specifically for the big bell. Backpack straps and shoulder strap too. It's used by many of our endorsers as well.

    Would a Keilwerth (tenor) fit into one of these?
