Hard/Flight Case for Stage 2 HA88?

Postby tannymik » 17 May 2018, 17:05

Hey everyone, I'm trying to find a hard case or flight case for my Stage 2 HA88, as I'll be moving it either by plane or moving truck. I'm located in Canada and would prefer to get something local rather than order from overseas. Bizarrely, Long & McQuade (the big music store chain where I live) has a super limited selection of hard cases for 88-key keyboards - as in, they only seem to have 76-key cases! I would be super grateful for your expertise!

I have a multipart question:
1. Canadian Stage 2 HA88 players, if you have a hard case, what would you recommend, and where did you order it from?
2. Has anybody successfully used the SKB iSeries 5014-6 Waterproof Layered Foam Utility Case with Wheel to house the S2HA88? It says it's for 76-key keyboards, but I read one other post on the forum here where somebody seemed to be using a 76-key SKB case for an 88. The Long & McQuade website lists it as model # 3I-5014-6B-L with a 50.5" internal length (and the S2HA88 is 50.7").
3. Alternatively, has anyone used the Gator ATA Molded TSA 76-Note Deep Hard Case for the an 88 key Nord? The Deep case has an internal length of 51.25", so presumably this would work?
4. How about Casemakers cases (Multi-Caisses, from Quebec) - any recommendations or users of these out there?

Apologies if I'm repeating an old question, but it seemed like the most recent threads were from a few years ago. And if the person who used a 76-key SKB case for the Stage 2 88 is still around and sees this, I'd love to hear from you (especially if you needed to modify the case in any way!)

Thanks so much, everyone!

You can ask for this case skb 3i-5616-kbd at Cosmo Music, it is one of the best music store in Canada.
Muiti Caisse in Quebec is also good but the flight cases I bought from them were very heavy.

I had the Gator TSA76 for my Stage2 88. Was a great fit. I think there was even room for power cable and pedal...
If I remember rightly, it wasn’t even the deep version. The Nord is sooo slim compared to say, a Fantom 88!! Did Middle East to UK and back three times without a scratch.
