    Default Hiscox Case Cover w/Backpack Traps?

    I just bought a Hiscox Artist Model Alto Case BUT it doesn't have the backpack strap option and my JazzLab harness won't fit in the case. Is there an after market case cover that would have the straps and give me a pocket for the neck harness. Minor issue but I'd like to keep everything together for those grab and go situations.

    Tenor - '61 Mark VI w/Tenny Slant Tone Edge 7
    Alto - '66 Mark VI/Meyer 6/Caravan
    Soprano - '93 Yani S-900 w/Tenney Tone Edge 7

    I'd try these guys; http://www.coloradocase.com/saxophone.aspx


    As they can likely make you a custom case cover with the features you want but it won't be inexpensive. Of course I'm a little biased since I drive past this place on a regular basis. I keep meaning to stop in there just to check the place out but I always to seem to be in a rush to get someplace else when I go by.

    I had a tripler case for sop, alto and tenor saxophones that was incredible from this company.

    THe Coloradocase cover for Hiscox is a very good cover and has a zippered pocket also. I have one for my Hiscox alto and tenor cases. They are insulated and fit very snugly around the case. A high quality product.

However, I do ENDORSE and play VIKING SAXOPHONES!!!

    Just called Coloradocase and he's happy to put something together for me; however, it's a bit more money then I'm willing to put into this experiment. Thanks everyone for the suggestion.

    This would be a custom deal adding a Boxed Storaged area (Like the ProTec Flute slot). With shipping it was going to be around $300USD. It would also take 6 weeks due to the overwhelming popularity of Colorado Cases.
