Hi all, Looking for a heavy duty carrying bag for Korg Oasys 88 rather than having to lug around a heavy duty gator or Swan flight case, quite difficult to source because of size, any ideas??
Thanks

I have a soft case for my GEM Equinox 88 that I purchased 20 years ago. The Equinox 88 weighs 72 pounds. I carried it to gigs for 12 years in that case. Worked nicely, lots of padding. Also, even if you find a case that is not highly padded you can make it highly padded by adding foam padding for inserts. Glue them in, stitch them in, two way tape them in. Adds more protection but not more weight. So I wouldn't necessarily worry about the case protection as you can make it protected with padded inserts, look for a case that can support a heavy keyboard, has rugged handles and quality zippers. If the zippers break (a $2 item) your entire case becomes useless.

Gator makes plenty of padded bags as well as TSA approved flight cases but apparently not for the Oasys 88.

There may be a problem making a quality bag for the unit because of weight issues.

There's a thread on gig bags for the Kronos 88 over on the Korg Forums discussing the pros and cons of using a bag instead of a case.

Hi which case bag did u buy, the Oasys weighs 32.1 kg, just under the Equinox, will do all the necessary padding after I buy.
Thanks

I use a stagg KTC-150 for my Oasys 88, lot lighter, also have a gator tsa 88.
For my gator I drilled holes and put strap handles with big washers inside on either side so easier to lug. Cheap on eBay at the moment
