New case for NS3 HA88

Postby GeeDeWee » 19 Jun 2019, 14:06

I've had a Nord Piano 88, a Nord Stage 2 HA88 and now I own a Nord Stage 3 HA88.
The thing that always has been the same is my Nord Case 88. But that case has become worn down, especially the fabric between the wheels.

So I’m in need for a new case. I transport my NS3 about once a week in my own car of and I need to carry it down two staircases and up again.
My options seem to be:
- Nord 88 soft case (again), € 204,-
- Gator GTSA KEY88SL polyethylene hard case, € 272,-
- Gator GTSA KEY76 polyethylene hard case, € 272,- (fits as well according to the online 'Gator case advisor')
- SKB 3i-5616-tkbd polypropylene hard case, € 443,-

Any experiences or recommendations?

Thank you Lew! Never thought of a case that is not primarily a keyboard case.

for reference it's a nanuk 995 and I'm sure you could get it fairly easily. the pull and carry handles are very comfortable to the hand compared to gator and SKB and this is lockable. very pleased with it.

The Nanuk 995 case can be ordered with a customizable foam.
Do you believe this solid foam from Nanuk would suffice for the 19kg Stage 3 HA 88?
