I ordered this case for my new Casio XW-P1 because the keyboard is deeper than most and it fits perfectly. The padded hold down straps are a fantastic idea to keep the keyboard stable and in case you have a "Oops Moment" when you pick up the case without zipping the top shut the keyboard won't fall out. The front storage bag has plenty of pockets and storage for everything needed. I'm slowly changing all my cases to this soft shell design because they do not destroy anything around them and protects the inside of the car. The wheels are great and functional. Musicians Friend gave me a great deal and quick service.

First and foremost, a case needs to protect your gear. It also should simplify transport. After that, features like extra space to carry accessories or light weight are nice to have. This case unfortunately fails on the most important point. The area on a keyboard most sensitive to damage is the top since that is where all the knobs and switches are. This case protects the keyboard top with a piece of fabric. The edges and bottom are protected with some semi-rigid plastic, but not the top. Hence, the only way to use this case properly is to put the keyboard in top-down. This is doable, but seems like a serious design flaw to me that could have been avoided by simply adding some plastic ribs to the top. The case is also quite heavy and is about the same weight as a fully rigid case I have for a slightly smaller keyboard. The Gator site says 22 lbs, which is about the weight of the keyboard itself (Nord Stage 2 - 73). On the positive side, it is cheap, holds a decent amount of pedals or cables, and the wheels are a big help. Could use another handle on the bottom though to allow a helper to help lift the case. Don't know how it will hold up but other similar models get complaints that the zipper breaks.

      Comments about Gator GK-61 61-Key Lightweight Keyboard Case:

      I've used this soft case for my Roland Fantom 61 board. Love everything except the zipper has cratered which basically totals it. Early on the handles ripped out too. That's a shame because aside from those two things it's great. I may buy another one as hard cases really tend to screw up a car interior (and gig bags won't cut it).
      Note that if you are gigging hard and throwing gear in a van or truck, this is not your case. However, it's great for sliding in the back seat of a car or SUV for occasional gigs etc.

        Comments about Gator GK-61 61-Key Lightweight Keyboard Case:

        Really big for a 61 key keyboard I am going to put foam on the inside of the top cover to protect the top of the board...I will also use foam left and right of the board to keep it from moving up and down..a case is designed to protect what is in it while it is being moved or stored...falls short... but is made like a tank

        Comments about Gator GK-61 61-Key Lightweight Keyboard Case:

        A while back I posted a review of a guitar case I purchased that was too small and barely fit my guitar. You would think that from that mistake I would have learned to do a better job measuring but I am legally blind and cannot read all those little numbers on the tape measure anyways. So I clicked the 'add to cart' tab and went for broke on this keyboard case.

        The good news is that this case is NOT too small. In fact, not only can I fit my new Yamaha 61 key synth in it, but also my guitars, a few drums and cymbals, a mic stand,amp, a 6 pack of beer w/small cooler and oh yes my grandkids love playing hide and seek in there as well…

        It IS very sturdy though and the wheels are a nice feature to help all that extra weight to 'keep on rollin'

          I bought this case for my Yamaha Motif 6 which is a heavy keyboard. The case is very sturdy and the wheels are a great feature making it much easier for transporting heavy keyboards.

            This is one of the reliable keyboard case, although its a little bit heavy without the keyboard but its durable. I hope they are making a lighter case next time.

              This case fits my Yamaha PSR 740 perfectly, leaving room for the power supply, volume pedal and expression pedal. The material is very sturdy and shouldn't tear or come apart at the seams. Nice bag!!!

              This is a nice fit for the Yamaha Motif Original. It's very sturdy, seems to offer great protection. My only complaint, which is not crucially important, is that it is slightly heavier than my original Motif case, and a little boxier. On the flip side, it seems to be sturdier. I would recommend it!
