Decent case, but does not fit Yamaha Motif XF8!
on October 21, 2010
The case itself seemed good enough - folded, plenty of extra padding included, pretty good build. However, my 88 key keyboard (Yamaha Motif XF8) simply does not fit in it.
I tried several times, and was barely, barely able to squeeze it in. The edges of the keyboard were visibly sticking out against the case, and in order to even jam the keyboard in there, it was necessary to take the padding on the wheels out, so that the keyboard was riding directly on top of the wheels.
This would not have been an issue, except that the SKB website for this case says that it fits the Yamaha Motif ES8, listed there as 57.375". However, it doesn't fit my Motif XF8, which is listed as smaller than the ES8 (56.625")!
So, I returned the case.
Conclusion: if your keyboard is a few inches smaller than a Motif, great, this case is a cost-effective way to get padded protection, and it comes with lots of extra pads to help secure smaller boards. But don't try it with a Motif, as you'll be just as paranoid carrying it around in the case as you would be on its own.
