I’m getting an early 60s King 2B, and I really want to replace the old case and get a new one. I’m just curious and what everybody else uses. I have no preference, I don’t really need big pockets, but it’s always nice to have some. I’d prefer a soft case however.

Cronkhite cases are awesome gig bags. I have one for my alto an dI actually wish I would have just gotten the small tenor since I could fit my alto in it just as easy but would also fit my Shires small bore as well as my flugabone.

I really dig the Eastman tenor cases myself in the hard case world. They're lightweight, protective, and water tight! The matte finish do scratch a little easier than the pebble so I tend to recommend the pebble color over the matte finish but that's more of a cosmetic point. Cool incidental feature is you can put bumper stickers on your Eastman case because of the material. Travel somewhere, get the bumper sticker and let everyone know where you're trombone has been!

Another common option for small bores is the SKB 360, which is really protective and also quite lightweight.

Other popular cases for small bores include, but are not limited to, those made by Protec, BAM cases, Marcus Bonna, Basili, and Fusion.
