Protect Your Keyboard With a Gig Bag
What is a keyboard gig bag?
A keyboard gig bag, also referred to as a keyboard case, is a material case that has a padded interior and zipper closure and holds the keyboard for protection during transport. It usually includes a carrying strap or handle (or both) and sometimes wheels, making it easy to carry a keyboard from one gig to another.
They come in different sizes to accommodate 49-key keyboards up to those with 88 keys. The material is usually something like durable nylon, though semi-hard cases are also available offering added stability and protection for a musician’s precious equipment. Some also have pockets to hold accessories like a pedal, cables, batteries, a piano book, or even a separate foldable dust cover.
Why use a keyboard gig bag?
A keyboard gig bag allows a musician to easily transport a keyboard, whether it’s for short local trips from one gig to another or long trips to an important gig in another city, country, or town. They protect the keyboard from dust and dirt, and from bumps and nicks as it’s loaded into a trunk, carried from one place to another, or in a crowded bar, restaurant, or other venue. They can also be used to protect the keyboard when it’s not in use.
Alternatively, a keyboard cover protects the keyboard by stretching to fit around it, preventing dust and other contaminants from getting in. But a keyboard gig bag or case includes a padded interior for added protection, and a convenient handle, making it better for transport as well.
What to look for in a keyboard gig bag?
Look at the material and durability of the case. If you travel often with a lot of equipment that can get knocked around, make sure to get a case that offers extra durability through things like an aluminum frame, ballistic material, or a molded design. Also look for thick interior padding made of a material like foam that’s also soft, so it won’t damage the keys or frame. You also want it to be lightweight, especially if you’ll be carrying the keyboard often. Waterproof material in a keyboard gig bag, like 420d Oxford fabric, could be a lifesaver if you walk outdoors often in the rain.
Make sure the straps are comfortable, particularly if you will be carrying it while walking for lengthy periods of time, or through an airport for gigs. The straps should be adjustable and padded so they don’t put strain on your shoulder. Especially if you travel long distances, built-in wheels, stair slides, or pull-out handles can come in handy.
Extra pockets are convenient for holding accessories, and you want an easy-load design so you can quickly pull the keyboard out when it’s time to set up and play, and put the keyboard away when you’re leaving one gig to attend another.
