Congratulations! You're finally going on tour. As the initial excitement wears off and you turn to logistics planning, you need to put a lot of thought into how you will protect your valuable gear. If you plan on doing any serious traveling with your keyboard we strongly advise investing in a good hard keyboard case. This is especially true if your keyboard will be out of your direct possession while in transit, such as with checked airline baggage or hotel storage.
You can rest assured that Sweetwater carries a great selection of hardshell keyboard cases for your budget and protective needs. With sizing options up to 59 inches long and 8.5 inches high, we have cases to accommodate full-sized 88 key instruments. Plus, our biggest cases come with built in caster wheels. Part of the protection that a case offers stems from simply making it easier to carry. With heavy duty handles and clasps, you'll never have to engage in keyboard wrestling again.
All of our cases are sturdy and well built. We carry the tried and true ATA-style wood-sided flight cases. These popular cases have been in circulation and protecting gear for generations. They're still around for good reason: because they work. Many come with customizable foam interiors so you can make sure your unit will fit snugly inside and not slide around. We also have aftermarket ATA cases that are designed to perfectly fit specific models. When it's time to go on tour, you can always count on these cases to do the job.
On the other hand, if you're feeling like you want something a little more modern, check out our impressive array of hard-sided molded-shell plastic cases. These tend to be a bit lighter than ATA style cases, and they have the added distinction of being waterproof. This alone makes these an attractive option. Plus, many of these cases have TSA approved locks.
Whether you favor time-tested ATA style cases, or the new breed of molded plastic, our selection of keyboard cases is second to none. With superior protection, accessory pockets, reinforced latches and cleats, don't be surprised if your keyboard ends up traveling in more comfort than you do. That's the kind of peace of mind that might relax you enough to let you fall asleep in the tour van.
Kitting out a hard shell case for your keyboard can be a bit nerve wracking. You don't want to have it arrive right before you leave on tour only to discover you got one of the measurements wrong and it doesn't fit. Let us help you make sure your keyboard case fits like a glove. Just give us a call and we'll walk through the measurements with you. Then we’ll let you know all the keyboard cases that are the right fit. We'll make sure you have the all the information you need to choose the case with all of the features you want.
