Can anyone tell be why the mike connector is a Speakon, not an LXR on the G-70? Seems wierd, to me. Where do you get the right cable or adapter?

Any suggestions for a good bag or case? The dealer I'm getting this one from is not a Roland combo dealer and can't supply the foot pedal or the case/bag.

Questions already, and it's not even here yet!

More to come, I'm sure!
Thanks,

"Roland Man" Russ

Russ as for bags/cases..I have a Gator 76 w/wheels I use, and just bought a GigSkinz 76/w/wheels[because it is 12 pounds lighter than the Gator..The Gator gives superior protection..The GigSkinz is designed to be lighter..more like a heavy padded bag with wheels[with the G70 it supports well, but a plastic keyboard I would have concerns wheeling it]..There is no inter-structure to the bag other than padding..

I wanted a good padded bag for lighter travel and the GigSkinz is exactly that, and I have the option to wheel it if I want..It may be available for sale[$150, never used..1 week old]..List is $299..

Russ, I have the same Gator case as Fran (not copying ). I find it a little heavy and makes moving anything like the G70 a chore. But it is a good, protective environment.
The GigSkinz would be a good alternative if you are able to lift and carry the G70 by yourself safely. The only criticism I have of GigSkinz is they are more expensive than other bags of that style.

George is going to get the GigBagz for me when he gets back to the store. The 7 note foot pedal is on back-order for several weeks.

DAMN!
