The 10 Best Saxophone Cases
This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in March of 2020. Musical instruments are usually made with precision to high standards and are often expensive, so protecting them from damage while in transit to and from lessons and gigs is critically important. The saxophone cases in our selection can withstand everything from a few gentle bumps to the knocks associated with airline travel, and also protect instruments from the elements. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

There are several different types of saxophone, ranging from soprano to bass, and as such, we have tried to include a selection in our ranking. If, for example, we have listed a case for soprano saxophones that you like, but you are looking for a tenor saxophone case, most brands in this ranking, such as Crossrock and Gator, build cases to suit all instruments within the saxophone family.
If you often travel with your instrument, you may find flight cases such as the Gator GC-Tenor-Sax and SKB Hard Rectangular would be most suited to your needs, as they are designed to withstand knocks associated with being placed in airplane baggage holds or in overhead lockers and vehicle trunks. On the other hand, students and mobile musicians who are looking for convenience and comfort when transporting their saxophone might find that a gig bag, such as the Protec Explorer Series or Fusion Urban Series would be more appropriate.
