I have a BAM bass Clarinet case. I must say that it is much lighter than
the case it came with (Buffet). After lugging that Buffet Brick for so
long, the BAM case was godsend... It isn't much smaller than a normal case,
but it certainly is lighter. It probably isn't quite as strong, but I treat
it with care, so that isn't much of an issue...
