The perfect cross between hard case protection and gig bag weight. These Gator cases are internally constructed from dense EPS foam and the exterior is covered in 600-denier ballistic material. To insure your alto sax does not get scratched, the interior is covered in soft plush. The GL case has an external accessory compartment for all your music gear, shoulder straps with D rings, and detachable external elastic straps for carrying jackets or a music stand. The carrying handle is made of parachute webbing.
