Yes how true! mine has that same smell, not rank or musty but 50 years of jazz history and like you say you don't want to really be using the case to much but I decided to "show off" with it one night on a session with our trumpet player, he was blown away by the smell as well!The case for my Silversonic has a smell all of its own. Not in a rank musty kind of way, more like 50 years of jazz! That is metal, oil, leather and wood! You wouldn't want to carry one of these cases far either! If we're out and about I take the horn in a liteflite case!
Hi Fraser your probably the guy to ask I have a Yas 62 mk1 absolutely pristine as is the case is it worth selling to buy the silversonic remembering it's 1979 year I don't know that I wish to sell it but I never play it at all, I play my SML and Yani If anyone saw the Yamaha They would think it was bought yesterday case as well. anyone else feel free to throw in your tuppence worth.
