Protec Max Alto Saxophone Case Review

Protec Max Alto Saxophone Case Review

Protec makes some amazing cases, but not always at  such an amazing price. To answer the call of budget-conscious consumers, Protec created the MAX line of cases.maxsax3

This Protec MAX Alto Saxophone case is available in two flavors. There is a standard rectangular case, and a contoured style. The rectangular case offers abundant storage for music folders, accessories, and more. The contoured case provides much less storage, but is a smaller and lighter package. The rectangular case weighs 6 pounds, while the contoured weighs 4.


Both cases are made from nylon, with an EPS Foam interior to protect the instrument.

The interior is lined in a soft plush lining with molded depressions to secure each piece of the instrument.maxsax2

It includes an adjustable shoulder strap, in addition to the padded grips, which also lock together with a velcro closure. There are also hidden backpack straps beneath a flat on the rear of the case.

The MAX cases also feature nice rubber gripped zipper pulls attached to a heavy-duty zipper. Zippers are notoriously problematic on cases, with students often breaking them. At this price point, the zipper is much nicer than many less expensive alternatives, and shouldn’t be a problem.

maxsaxThis case makes a great upgrade for most sax players. It’s far lighter than most factory cases and offers better protection! If you are an ‘on the road’ musician and traveling a lot, you’d be wise to spend a little more and upgrade to something from the Protec Pro Pac line.
