No idea. But if it is a "coffin case" style and big enough, you might be able to unscrew the inside form fitted bit, and just pack it with foam cut into the right shape to accommodate the Rath.

A screwdriver and an X-acto blade might be all you need, foam aside.

Raths are wide across the bell section at the valve area, so you may have a problem. I use a basic Jin Bao bass case for day to day travel as it is mega light and the trombone fits well. Think of it as a solid gig bag !  There was a trombone in the case when I got it, but I consider that a little bonus.For more serious travel I have a carbon fiber case, but I cannot get some of my extra bits in it as it is very compact. If the yammy case is dead cheap, buy it, try it, sell on if not right !

Thanks! That's a very good idea.

Thanks! If so, hopefully the inside of the case can be adjusted a bit. It is quite cheap

All, I got a good deal on an eastman case. Fits ok with towel or two.

I just bought a yellow brass R9D (nr 24x), great easy playing horn! Love it
