I like the look of these and the reviews on Amazon are largely favourable too:


Is anyone on here using one?

I have one of these, Chris. I use it for travel when I go out of town. I have several Bb clarinets and each fits in the case securely. There is a small (emphasis on "small") portion of the case for accessories. I just checked and in that space I have a reed guard with four reeds in it, a humistat (I currently have a wood clarinet in the case), a small container of cork grease, and a couple of pieces of blotting paper. On top of the clarinet, I have a polishing cloth and a silk swab (not bundled up). It gives me a nice light weight package. I stick in my Altieri bag, along with whatever music and "stuff" I'm taking. It's a neat little case. Would I drop it from a table to the floor to test it? No, but I wouldn't do that with the horn in its original case, either.

I just bought this case: https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Replacement-Clarinet-Imitation-Leather/dp/B00NO6TVUW
Did not buy on Amazon but on that "other" site...

Seems to be well made and the R13 fits well.
When I placed my new Prestige in there the lid had a little more resistance from the thick padding on the cover because Prestige has left Eb lever that sticks out/up.
The fabric is not as good as in the Buffet case but still is of decent quality.

My 2p

I currently have it and I love it. I am going to traveling thorough Europe for two months and this case is TINY. I would highly recommend it. I am keeping all of my music digitized on my tablet. I also have my reeds and other stuff in a suitcase and I'm bringing a backpack too. Using it for my R13.

Funny that you post on this case. I work Saturday's at a friend's music store and he just got these in:


I bought it on the spot! (comes in silver and midnight blue as well)

They are slightly different than the one you post (yours has some ringlet things hanging off one side) and I don't know what other differences there are BUT the above case has enough "storage" capacity in the case for an emergency bottle of oil, extra barrel, extra ligature (or two), pencils a D'Addario reed holder (or two), two screw drivers and a crochet hook for emergency spring repair.

As stated above toss the swab upon the instrument just over a folded 100% cotton flannel cloth for key wiping.

The best part, for a small case the lid stays OPEN when you have it in your lap to assemble your clarinet - try that with just about any other cheap case.

There is a canvas storage pocket attached to the bottom that has four screw fasteners that I immediately took off to just have the thin, "knock" resistant case all around.

Just got it, but AWESOME!

I have looked at the BLT307 case, but it is a bit larger than both the BM307 (the "micro-" case that the OP refers to, and the MX307 (Protec MAX...I have a couple of these, larger than the BM, but smaller than the BLT). They are all nice cases, and offer reasonably protective cases in small form factor. I cut of the zipper guard 'flap' and the backpack clips on my MAX cases, but do find the two outer zipped pockets to be occasional useful; they are designed to add minimal thickness when empty.

For everyday use, I have been using the SKB Clarinet Case...no nonsense solid case from a long-term instrument case supplier.

Protec Bb Clarinet Slimline PRO PAC Case, Black, Model PB307 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0002EJYTM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_v-D7CbCNN72WE

I’ve been using this. It’s holding up nicely and doesn’t look too dorky.
