Default Case Recommendation for my Vintage Acrolite

I need a recommendation for a hard case for my Keystone Badge Acrolite.
I seldom take it out of the house so it doesn't need to be a road case but I don't want a soft bag either.
Thanks!

I like SKB but expect to pay $100 for a snare case unless you get used- or an old used fibre case maybe.....

Honestly, I WISH the old Humes and Berg fibre cases were still available. They were jussssst enough protection without going overboard.

I found this great train case. They sometimes have them on goodwill site. anyway it is 9 by 16 so fits snare with room for a little padding. And looks very vintage. With 3 latches, it stays closed well. so no worry of it falling open. Handle is also leather over metal so I dont think that will break any time soon either.
