I am looking for a well fitting ABS case for a PT6P. Any suggestions?
Thanks a lot in advance,

Check out MTS and SKB. Not many other companies make affordable ABS cases. Probably run you about $550-$650 new. Keep your eyes on the For Sale section, might luck out and find something serviceable at a decent price.

Hubert,

Please refer to the photos: in stock at my shop.
The area around the top bow is given particullar attention, the bell of course as well as the bottom bow. Instrument shown is the new new MRP CC-tuba.

An ultimately protective case would offer a way to suspend the bell rim with absolutely no contact of it whatsoever with the bell-end of the case.

I've seen cases that large made by Winter (not inexpensive), but have not personally seen cases that large made by MTS or SKB (which - to me - both seem less well-made than Winter, and also seem to be priced lower than Winter, but still somewhat formidably-priced). The immediately-previous blather having been typed into this field, I could not find a tuba case listed on the Winter website that promises to accommodate a tuba longer than 37" in overall length. I was, however, able to view a picture of a young lady (entire legs exposed). She may (??) have been carrying a case...I cannot remember... https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/2205/7845/files/Header-6-Jakob-Winter_1700x.progressive.jpg?v=1517048844
