Tyros 5 Case - 11/07/14 05:44 PM

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

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.

Here is the case I had nycase build to my specs. It is the one that I would recommend over anything out there. I originally was thinking about the TuffBox case but after I talked to the owner I changed my mind as it was going to be only about one pound less than what I did order. A lot of the guys now have this case and are quite happy with it as you will see on this link.

You will just have to give them the dimensions for the T5 if it's any different than the T4.

Don't know which Guardian case you have but the case for 61 keys does not fit the Tyros, otherwise I would have bought one. The case for the 76 keys will fit the 61 note Tyros but it is way too huge and can be a problem transporting in cars.

Hi Steve

Guardian doesn't make a case for 88 keys.

Not meaning to stir the pot..but now I'm curious.

Most folks on these forums talk about using the S950(or similar Korg etc) in place of a Tyros...not because the S950 is a better machine but because it's lighter.

Thing is, if a person is hauling around an S950 in a plywood case...where's the gain in it being lighter?

I looked at a few of the cases mentioned here and my S950 in one of these Guardian cases would weigh as much(perhaps a bit more) than my Tyros in the Kayces case...??? Also, my Kayces case for the Tyros 4 has wheels.

Again...I'm now curious.

I always laugh whenever I see someone say they buy the PSR because the Tyros weighs more. The Tyros 5 weighs 5.48 pounds more than the PSR-S950. I mean come on:)

The plywood case I use weighs 20 lbs exactly (with wheels). The Kaces soft case that I previously used weighs 20 lbs. The old Tyros soft case no longer in production weighed about the same. The Gator soft case for 76 (fits Tyros 5-61) weighs 26 pounds. The Guardian case weighs about 13 - 14 pounds. It's a nice case IF it fits your keyboard.

If I had a PSR I would probably get a Guardian 61 case or even one of those 4 pound bags I've seen. But I sure wouldn't put my expensive Tyros 4 in a bag. Not for an instrument that expensive.

I can't find the weight specs on my CK61, but I don't believe it weighs more than 10 pounds.

I never saw one but the owner of I believe it was Finecases dot com told me they were 13 or 14 pounds. I believe that company is now defunct.

Think I am more confused now. Since I am looking for t5 61 case. and see a lot of references to the 950 and T4 which wouldn't fit the 5. Looking to spend no more than $200. Anymore suggestions

Thanks all

After all is said and done my suggestion is to call Frankieve at Audioworks, Ct.
203-876-1133. or e-mail him frankieve at yahoo dot com. I've bought every arranger I ever owned from him not sure what I was thinking when I was looking for a T5 case but in hindsight should have called him. Brain cramps, DUH moments call it whatever . .........it's worth a call or e-mail to him.

Re: Tyros 5 Case - 11/10/14 04:11 PM

I like the glove like fit of my keyboard from the nycase co also called roadcasesusa dot com along with other divisions as do a number of others that bought one.

I do not know of any manufactured case that will fit a Tyros decently except for the Tyros hard case by Yamaha, but it weighs as much as the keyboard and one guy had the finish worn off his keyboard using this case. Everything else that is manufactured is too long or too wide or too deep, etc

The case I had done I gave them the dimensions and it was custom built for me. You would need to do the same.

I spent a lot of time on this case thing, literally months and months of research. Nothing decent out there. Don't know why Yamaha doesn't make a light case that fits the Tyros.

Iíve got the same issue---a T5 with the large, hardshell case. Iím looking, too, for an appropriate gig bag that fits nicely. What happened to the Fusion #10 case that some were able to get? Is that model totally out of production? I hardly play the T5, preferring to carry the S950 around.
