Good case in spite of little annoyances functional.

Gator Cases GK-88Published on 04/29/12 at 16:49

Used for 2 weeks.

I have not tried other models before.
It is therefore a case for rigid 88-key keyboard. I use it for my Kurzweil K2600XS.

On the exterior, the case is solid, with large storage space on the side of the rubber bearings to put it safely in almost any direction.
It has a side handle, two wheels of plastic to pull, and wheels in the opposite handle. I would have preferred rubber wheels, like on skates. (I never understood why the designers of luggage have never thought, they never made skateboarding or rollerblading in order to appreciate the advantage of the gum in this application?).

Used for 2 weeks.

I have not tried other models before.
It is therefore a case for rigid 88-key keyboard. I use it for my Kurzweil K2600XS.

On the exterior, the case is solid, with large storage space on the side of the rubber bearings to put it safely in almost any direction.
It has a side handle, two wheels of plastic to pull, and wheels in the opposite handle. I would have preferred rubber wheels, like on skates. (I never understood why the designers of luggage have never thought, they never made skateboarding or rollerblading in order to appreciate the advantage of the gum in this application?).

2 feet of hard plastic wheels are close to be able to put the holster when standing.

The first question that arises at this time of use is: "Are designers are left with Gator?"

Yes, if you take the case by the side handle, the pockets are against your legs, and it's pretty anti-practice. Although at hand for an internship or some northern master keyboards, and less to compete for the title of Mr. muscle, this handle will almost never do.
This is all the more illogical, that if you expect to have the pockets to the outside, the wheels are on the front, which goes against a pulling of the case.

In short, go after.

The interior is simple and effective. Most synths return as dad in mom. (However, I doubt that a Korg T1 or a Korg O1 / W Pro X can be housed therein).
There are two very large velcro straps to keep the keyboard against the bottom. No complaints on that side.

The pockets are very roomy. I was able to accommodate four directories, manuals Kurzweil hours without problem, and the power cord. They were not stingy on that side. I'm delighted!

Now, should carry the beast and this is a new functional defect appears.
When you grab the top handle, the weight of the keyboard will bring down the case and your hand will be compressed between the handle and carrying case quite violent.
Stops have been a simple but ingenious idea to avoid this.
This shows one thing, the designers have certainly tested the case-load and unloaded, or when, on an extremely short period of time.

A second functional defect: Imagine that for reasons X, you need to put the case up, guess what happens .... Do not you see?
Pulling on the pull handle to lift the keyboard (in my case, we approach the 40Kg), and at the same time the wheels roll (yes, I assure you), then applying a force opposite to your traction! .
you can not even imagine the battle it is!
Again, a simple system of locking the wheels would have solved the problem.

Apart from these two "defects" functional, it's still a very good case. Especially since it is a very affordable price!
