      I purchased this case almost 7 years ago now for the keyboard at church. We load and unload and move all of our equipment 2-5 times a week. Other than one of the band members' kids ripping a hole in the outside netting, it has held up perfectly. I have liked it so much that I just purchased one for my own keyboard a couple of weeks ago. The case is solid and REALLY well padded. The velcro pads across the keys hold really well. Fantastic purchase.

      The case is nice for my large and heavy Kurzweil 88 keyboard.

      However, when I took it out of the box, the handle fell off! It was attached by two cheap rivets. I replaced the rivets with some copper wire. The brackets that attached to the case seem underengineered as well-- very thin and loose. I am tempted to bring it to a luggage repair shop to have them install a more robust handle. I do not want it falling off while I moving my expensive keyboard.

      The rest of the case is typically what you would expect.

      I will keep it as there are not many options for large keyboard cases.

        Comments about Gator Cases GK-88 Keyboard Case:

        We purchased this case for a Kurzweil PC88 full size keyboard. It's a couple inches longer than our last case, but still fits in the van. There are inner straps which use velcro to secure the keyboard in place. The handle on one end of the case is really solid, and seems like it will hold up to lots of use. We've only used it for a few gigs, but are happy with this purchase.

          Comments about Gator Cases GK-88 Keyboard Case:

          I gig 2 or 3 times a month, locally. I don't need a hard shell case and I researched a number of different bags. I have a Yamaha MO-8 and I contacted Gator to find out why they didn't recommend the bag with wheels for the MO8. They said it was the size, yet it was the same size as the one they did recommend (same bag, no wheels)
          So, I decided to buy the GK-88 with wheels and I'm not disappointed. This bag is sturdy, straps the keyboard securely and is easy to maneuver. I'm totally satisfied.
          I am also completely satisfied with the customer service provided by B&H. I had purchased a bag prior to this one that ended up not living up to my expectations and the return process was without incident. Kudos all around

            I love Gator! And I love B&H!
            my Yamaha S90XS 88-key synth fits perectly into this Gator case designed for a Motif.
            Tony spoke on the phone at length with me determining which case, and which kind of case, would be optimal for my needs.
            Everything worked out great!

                      My M50 is too big for a narrow case and rather slim for this case, but I basically had to go with this one. It's fine for it, just a big too roomy for my liking but I can use some of the room for other things if I wrap them up in a cloth/padded bag. The case has a nice feel and appears durable. One thing to be aware of is the sliders near the wheels that would take the most use on stair are aluminum and will get chewed up by cement steps. A design improvement would be to put plastic or neoprene replaceable rails over those aluminum frame members so they can be replaced with use. But it's a good purchase.

                          I bought a new keyboard and had no way to protect it. The generic soft cases at the store had no option to secure the keyboard inside. I searched online for that option and found the link to the Gator case, which came with heavy duty velcro straps and the bonus of several chord and accessory compartments. [...] I've used the case successfully on several gigs now, and am delighted with its sturdiness.

It is well put together, the wheels on the bottom are reinforced. Only time will tell but it looks like it will hold up under normal use.
