Good morning :)

Would any of you have any Old Alto sax cases please, I have purchased a few but they need to be the old type which accept left hand bell keys, I do not mind the odd missing carry handle or those that need minor restorative work, but I seem to have come unstuck as I do really need 5 or so. I cannot really afford to pay silly money for them as could mod modern cases, but it is a real chore and I prefer the old original ones.

I have plenty of catches, handles and hinges if they need them. So as cheap as possible please and I shall make the donation to the cafe for the sale.

it`s a shame there was a decent one yesterday for £10 Buy it now, someone snapped it up ......

I`d like a Tenor one as the catches are broken on my Corton one, I may end up retroffitting catches off an old suitcase on it as Czech cases are based on suitcase designs

Thanks though I have seen some of these, problem is they would not fit left hand bell key saxes, pm me with a photo of what catches you have and I shall see if I can help.

Sorry.. it was early , I misread your post and thought you already had left bell ones and needed "normal" ones ..

I have a couple of vintage ones but they're no good for my old Conn Pan Am (it came on one of them) with L/H bell keys, too loose - sax is too small.
What sax/es do you need them for?
