Unfortunately, I don't see another good option for my keyboard (15in X 57in X 6in). I saw one that was rated low and another one that is too expensive for a cover ($50). If anyone has suggestions, please let me know.
I contemplated making one of these myself since it's ridiculous how much some brands want/are charging for such a simple product. This one was much cheaper so I was skeptical, but it is very well made - excellent quality for the money. In fact, by the time I priced the fabric/hardware to make one myself, it would have cost me more than buying this one. Plus, this one even comes with a warranty! ;)
The Gator Cases Stretchy Cover is, as the name implies, very stretchy. It's made of Lycra Spandex, and has loads of spring to it. An adjustable shock cord outlines the base of the cover. I have the shock cord completely expanded. According to the hangtag, this cover can fit smaller keyboards (61- and 76-key in addition to 88-key), so I am guessing that's when you'd pull the cord tighter.
With the piano's sheet music stand mounted, I can fit the cover over the keyboard while letting the music stand jut up behind the fabric. In other words; the stand is not covered but the entire top, front and sides of the piano are; and I prefer this since I don't want to tear the fabric nor stress the music stand. Plus, if it's slipped over the stand, dust would be able to enter from behind and defeat the purpose of covering it in the first place.
Okay, is it perfect? I have one beef, but I didn't feel it was fair to penalize the product with a 4-star review. My piano has all its inputs and outputs on the left side. So with the cover in place, it presses against the patch cords, the sustain pedal cord, and the power cord, forcing them to bind at a sharp angle against their plugs. I want to leave the cords plugged in, of course, so this is a problem. I'm thinking about fitting a thick piece of foam in between the cords to offset the cover.
The Gator Cases Stretchy Cover is machine washable and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Hey, I sound like a commercial!
The fabric is thin, but appears to have a high thread count because it has a tight, silk-like feel. It definitely keeps out dust.
Because of the finish of the fabric this is easy to clean with a vacuum or even a feather duster. I love it because it has sufficient stretch to fit over not only my board, but also the cables connecting it to expression and sustain pedals, and to the signal out to my PA.
It also folds compactly - it arrived folded in a plastic pouch that measured 9.5" x 6" x 1.75". Considering the dimensions stretched over the keyboard, how small it is folded will give an idea about just how thin the material is.
Since this was a tight fit over my board I did not need to use the added drawstring that allows you to adjust it for smaller boards. However, that string is the key to making this work with smaller 76- and 61-key boards. Believe me, the material is slippery enough to need this adjustment because I own the large model of this cover for an 88-key and it will shoot off like a slingshot if not adjusted tight for smaller dimensions.
Flimsy it may be, but it is effective and I feel as though I got a lot of value for the price because it's protecting a much larger investment in my instrument.

The material is smooth to the touch and silk-like. More than adequate for dust protection but I wouldn't count on it to resist an accidental water / tea spill.
The corners, as shown in the photos are not "well fitted". The corners fall short of the body resulting in a very tight fit. Length-wise, with a strong pull on the drawstring I can just about get the cover to fit around the base of the Piano.
The Korg B2 Dimensions are 13.2' x 51.6' .
[UPDATE] *Nowhere on the amazon product page are the sizes covered detailed.* [UPDATE]
- The packaging states the Keyboard cover will fit sizes of up to 16' x 48'.
Quick math: White piano key width = 23.5mm (roughly). Multiple by 52 (number of white keys) = 1170mm = 46 inches.
This is not including spaces between keys. or the edge of a keyboard frame.
TL,DR: If you have "full sized piano keys" this is probably going to be a stretch. Waiting to see if it loosens over time and will update on quality of material in a month or so.
I thought it was a sleeping bag type of thing, it's not and it doesn't cover the back of the keyboard. It's awkward to use and the duffle style tighten system would be ok if there was a 2nd fastening at the other end.
It's a bit disappointing and I would have sent it back but forgot I had even bought it as it was tucked away in the cupboard of doom I just sorted out ;-)
It reminds me of a glorified computer keyboard cover from old, i.e. it's a 'case' shape minus the bottom panel, so it fits over the top of the unit no problem and catches on all 4x bottom corners to provide a secure cover. There is a drawstring cord, too. No branding on it. Just jet black.
It fits perfectly well around the music stand (I don't cover that) so no problems there.
Arrived promptly. The Gator original packaging indicates it's a US product.
Hopefully it will last many years and not tear or snag. Pleased with it as it's exactly what I was after.
