The WJ cases are molded fiberglass and made to be almost bombproof. They're heavy, have really rugged hardware and pretty much a must if you're going to fly with your new baby. An airport baggage handler can demolish a standard hard case--and the tuba inside--in no time at all.
Expect to spend somewhere in the vicinity of $800 for a WJ case. Pricey, but worth every nickel.
