The Gator ABS tenor sax case is made to meet the requirements of both professional and student band players. This hardshell case is constructed of an ABS exterior and a rigid EPS interior, which is similar to how a motorcycle helmet is constructed. The interior has soft foam in addition to plush lining to protect the instrument. D rings on the case make it easy to add a shoulder strap. For added longevity the tenor sax case has a backing plate on every rivet.
