    Just right!

    I needed a case for my new Roland rd 300nx I purchased at sweetwater. My personal sales consultant Mark Stein knew just what I needed and suggested this gator case. As usual he was spot on. The case fits just right, rolls nicely, zippers work perfectly and most importantly, it protects the keyboard just right. Very reasonably priced too.

    Best deal on a great case

    This 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!

    Very nice case.

    This case fits my Roland 700sx 88 keyboard quite well with room at one end for my pedal to be inside. It rolls extremely well and It's fairly rigid, but don't put heavy gear on top of it. I like that it's it's narrow and my keyboard is snug inside. The large straps hold it in place well. The case doesn't stand up on the back end very well. It's best laid flat. I just wish there was a shoulder strap for going up stairs because my Roland is so heavy.

    Gator GK-88 slim extra long keyboard case

    Very sturdy case, very solid, so it's easy to manage lifting and moving around.
    The wheels are industrial strength so not likely to be troublesome later on like some case I've owned

    Fits Roland A88

    Just got the case and it fits my Roland A88 perfectly. The A88 is a very slim board but I think bigger models would have no problem fitting in here. Check the internal measurements and measure your board.

    I'm going 4 stars only because the flip top of the case is not rigid like the rest of it. Not sure why they chose to do that. But overall looks very nice.

    Meets our expectations and needs

    We have been using a case for years that was fine. However, as I get older it seems like my keyboard is getting heavier.
    This case with wheels solves the problem pretty well. It's very good quality, fits my Roland FP80 very well and does the job.

    A good solution for our purpose.

    Great Gig Case

    The Gator GK is the perfect case for my RD800. Light weight with casters and lots of reinforced padding.

    Merely Adequate

    Contrary to some reviews on this site, I disagree with many of the high praises given to this keyboard case. It is too flimsy for anything other than occasional use. Of particular note is the plastic wheel assembly on the bottom of the case... the first time I used the case the assembly bent over a short three inch step and would not go back into place. The case would no longer stand vertically. Sweetwater sent me a replacement right away but I am still unhappy with the build quality of this case. It is built cheaply with rivets, and the handle with which one wheels/carries it seems flimsy and not designed for the long haul. An OK case for occasional use, but if you are expecting pro level quality and durability this is not the case for your 88 note weighted keyboard. It will not last more than a year or two.
