This is a Yamaha contoured case for medium- and large-bore Yamahas.  Pretty much identical to the Xeno cases.  Well-used but fully functional with plenty of life left.  Has a very slight perfumy smell.  Very slight.  This case was once owned by the great Cuban trombonist Juan Pablo Torres, so it's got some good mojo in it!  Guaranteed to improve your playing!

What's the largest diameter bell it will accommodate? (i.e. bass 'bone in pic)

Hm... On 3rd pic isn't this case. It's Eastman one, I believe.

Yes, the 3rd photo is an Eastman case - sorry for confusion.

The Yamaha case will hold an 8.5" bell or smaller.  I compared it against my contoured Xeno case.  Identical.  These are protective cases, are very light, and will hold most Yamaha horns and other with "normal" dimensions.  The fit is perfect for an 882 model with closed or open wrap.  But NOT the 882OR.  The F wrap on the OR model is too wide.  The fit is also perfect for the other medium- and large-bore Yamahas, w/ and w/o an F-att, I have tried at various times:  445, 645, 630, 640, 683, and 620.
