Best deal on a great caseThis case exceeded my expectations. If I didn't like I would have sent it back. Yet once unpacked, you see inside that it has Velcro tie downs to hold the keyboard in place. The padding is very thick and secure to guard against knocks that result in instrument damage, so that feels good. The case is very well made.
Love the handle placement and wheels to cart KB around. The Velcro handle for carrying horizontal is also convenient especially for loading/unloading.
In the front are zippered pockets and pockets within pockets for the power adapter and cord, misc cords, even size enough for charts and other stuff, but if you buy an external sustain pedal that is large and sturdy, you'll have to squeeze it in or stretch the pocket webbing. No big deal though. It didn't hurt the pocket one bit.
Nevertheless the case is far better than described and I am keeping it although I bought it sight-unseen from a small photo online. Make sure you measure carefully and buy the case that closely fits the size of your KB. You'll see extra care was taken to manufacture the corners to be secure. The zipper tabs are large and easy to find (unlike some other cases I own where I am always feeling around for the zipper tabs.)
Sweetwater packed it nicely and included support paperwork, a huge Sweetwater catalog (yay. more goodies!), and even some candy for fun! What a great idea, that really got my attention.
Go GATOR! Go Sweetwater!
