Excellent rock-solid premium case but not for some vintage saxes

FentonWeill, 28.11.2017
I needed a new case for my '66 Selmer Mk 6 tenor sax to replace the Hiscox I had, which although very tough, was irregularly shaped so hopeless for stacking with other gear on the way to gigs. In contrast, the JW 295 is lovely and square-shaped, with good storage for reeds etc inside, very well-padded and fits the Mk 6 perfectly - as a bonus, it also fits my '49 SML Rev C tenor very well too.

Downside? Well, unlike the Hiscox it can't accommodate saxes with bell keys on the port (LH) side so if you have a Conn10m or similar (I have tried it with mine) you're not going to be able to use the JW295 without major surgery to the interior, and who wants to do that to a brand-new case?

Secondly, I'm not convinced that the catch mechanism is foolproof in all circumstances. It consists of two plastic snap-downs that work in a single action, but there's no visual indication that they have engaged and fastened completely, unlike other catches that have a two-stage closure with an over-centre loop that engages first then pulls down tight - with the JW295 you do need to push them until you hear them both click. If you're hurrying to get away from a gig it would be all too easy to forget this, pick the case up and have it spring open (ask me how I know!) - fortunately, I always have the lid next to my leg so the case couldn't open fully so the Mk 6 didn't end up on the pavement.

Summary: Excellent robust quality case, not for vintage or other saxes with LH bell keys, MAKE SURE THE CATCHES ENGAGE before lifting and moving off with the case!

Perfect case

Franz Mense, 23.12.2013
After twenty years, countless gigs and flights, the suitcase of my Selmer has now dissolved in comfort, and I needed a replacement. The case of Jakob Winter makes a very robust impression. It is very well processed and amazingly light. The two handles are stable and comfortable. The horn is passable and secure. The compartment for the S-bow is a bit too big but otherwise there is nothing to criticize.
