Hey Guys,
Been starting to gig and now I only have the Tyros 5. Any suggestions on a case. Been looking around and not about to spend 500 bucks on a case. I see they stopped making the gig bag which would be fine with me. Suggestions welcome. Not like I putting it a tour bus or checking it in on a flight

Thanks

I purchased the above case for a T5-76. They will custom make a case depending on size of keyboard and dimensions. I spoke to them by phone, then e-mailed the dimensions of the board.

Would I buy another? This does the the job it's light enough and is hard shelled. The downside I've always used Guardian cases and miss the top pocket for storage of cables and other small items. If I were to buy another case for the T5-76 I'd shop around a little more. I purchased from this company based on some comments from another member but I was a little disappointed with it. Nevertheless it does offer plenty of protection.

I have the Yamaha Tyros case that I no longer use. It's basically a flight case. I'll give you an amazing deal on it. PM me for more details...

I bought a hold over Kaces bag for our Tyros 4..paid around $85 for it. It has a frame and extra padding.

If I was going out every day..don't know if I would recommend it. However, for the few times our Tyros goes out...and it rides inside the vehicle...it works fine.

The plywood, reinforced Guardian cases are tough to beat. I've been using the same case for 8 years now, no signs of wear at all and it goes out every day of the week.

Hey Beachbum,

I have a Tyros 61 guardian keyboard case that's brand new, in the box,for only $100.00 plus shipping. Never been used.

I had a tyros 2 that I sold and bought an s950 for the added portability (senior citizen) for gigging.

Send me an email.

If anyone has a light weight case for an s950 let me know. I'd be interested. Send an email or PM. thanks

Allen

Tony my friend no need to be sorry, you weren't the guy who made the suggestion. I think much of the issue has to do with the very large size of the T5-76. I probably should have just ordered a Guardian 88 key case, I seem to remember that would have fit. I use the Guardian for my Pa3x-61.

By the way for what it's worth, when I took the T5 back to the hotel from Gary D's arranger jam, all the luggage carts in the hotel were being used with guests checking in. I carried that bad boy thru the lobby to the elevator up 2 flights and to the hotel room. The lightweight of the case made that possible.
