Title: Genos wheeled carry case
Post by: mikecruiser on November 10, 2017, 03:58:40 PM
In anticipation of the arrival of my Genos, has anyone found a suitable lightweight soft case (with wheels) yet?
All and any recommendations welcome.  Thanks!

Perhaps the Soundwear Stagebag 76.

I had the model for the PSR-S. That fitted perfectly. The Stagebag 76 could be a little bit too small. No one tested so far.

Soundwear make great bags.

I use the 61 key version for my Tyros 3 and the 88 key version for my Kawai MP11 Stage Piano.

I've been dragging these instruments on paved streets and in hotel hallways, and up and down stairs and pavements fo 3 years now.

None of my instruments, nor the bag itself, have been damaged so far.

Just make sure that the bag is in front of you when going down the stairs.
That way, the wheels take the impacts
It's OK to drag it behind you when stepping off a pavement or just going down a couple of steps.
Great bags.

Best Regards,
Pianoman.

Genos dimensions:
48-9/16 x 17-15/16 x 5-7/16

It looks like this lightweight roller case fits Genos (very tight fit):

This is in Spanish but it's just for you to get the product reference number.

Yep!  I use the Soundwear Stagebag for my Tyros 5 - 61.  Nice and light and offers sufficient protection.  I think this will be the way to go... thanks all.  :)

That is a nice bag. Personally, I use just just a good quality soft case and use a light weight folding hand cart and use the cart for other gear as well. My JBL EON 518 Subs have their own wheeled carts and sometimes just load gear on those speakers as I wheel them in. Back wheels lock on the Sub carts, and the upper speakers are held secure from a pole from the very secure subs.

+1 on the Soundwear bags. Really excellent quality. I've had one for my Kurzweil PC361 for several years and both it and the keyboard look as good as new. Just bought the 88 version for my Yamaha CP4. Well padded, high quality zips, plenty of stowage room and the wheels don't add a huge amount of weight.
