SKB Corporation has added three new keyboard cases to their already impressive extensive lineup of keyboard transport solutions. These new models are the 1R6223W for 88-note keyboards; 1R6218W for 88-note narrow keyboards, digital pianos and controllers; and 1R4417W for 61-note keyboards. Designed for keyboard players who are looking for the best protection for their delicate musical instruments, the latest SKB Keyboard Cases are rotationally molded from Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE), offering high durability and strength. They also feature SKB's proprietary glass reinforced nylon trigger latches with TSA locks, enabling users to safely lock the cases and still have them inspected by airline security personnel. SKB is the only case manufacturer to utilize this technology.
The SKB keyboard cases feature a combination foam/cleat interior, which holds the instrument securely during transport. Adhesive backed foam for the interior lid is provided loose, so the musician can customize the fit of the case to match the keyboard. Special, reinforced bridging in the lid gives these keyboard cases the strength to withstand the most demanding tours. Cases are available in 88 standard, for keyboards such as the Korg Oasys 88, Roland Fantom G8 and Yamaha Motif XS8,88 narrow for keyboards such as the Korg SP250, Roland RD700SX and Yamaha CP33, and 61-note configurations for keyboards such as the Korg TR61, Roland Fantom G6, and Yamaha MOTIF XS6. The 76-note version will be available later in 2009.
The new keyboard cases include built-in wheels, offering tilt-and-go transport. Additionally, the case is water resistant and excellent in inclement weather. The new keyboard cases are covered by SKB's unsurpassed no-fault Million Mile Guaranty ™ (Lifetime Warranty).
The new keyboard cases will be available January 2009 from authorized SKB dealers with pricing TBD.
SKB is exhibiting at Booth 4210 (Hall C) at the 2009 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA.
