I need a really custom made keyboard bag??

I have a Hammond XK3 and I need a really well made, well padded, custom soft gig bag. All the 'off-the-rack' soft cases don't fit well.

It is an odd dimension (47"L, 16"D, 5"H).

I want it to fit snugly.

Any ideas?

PS-I can't believe Hammond doesn't have one for their board (like Nord does!)

Give me a holler direct by email or phone (908)753-1727

Thanks--Bill

thanks for the dope on the Motif case (Yamaha YBMOTIF7 Bag for MOTIF7). I checked dimensions, and the Motif case is 48.5" x 15" x 5" --- The Hammond XK3 is 47" x 16" x 5".

 

Very close, but the 16" depth of the XK3 seems to big for the 16" depth of the Motif case...

Maybe the fact that the case is a little longer than the XK3 (by 1.5")will let it fit o.k.

 

Have you tried out the fit yourself? Or are you sure it fits? I would like to order it today, but I want to be sure it's gonna work.

 

Thanks again, Bill

Bill, I do not own an XK3 (though it is on my gear lust wish list). I moderate another discussion forum in which the XK3 is a very hot topic. I recall several users that bought the Motif 7 case for the XK3 and said it was a perfect fit. I just double-checked and here is a quote:

 

Just as I expected, for those who want a great soft case for the XK3, try the soft case made for the Yamaha Motif 7... It fits perfectly, and has wheels to boot!

UnderCover of New York make custom bags/cases for the best companies in NY. Levy's also makes good bags/cases to fit any size. Yamaha is not a custom case maker.
