A velvet-lined instrument case would be perfect for such a beautiful instrument. In fact I think I’m going to try to build one myself since most people here seem to want something cheaper.
I need one of these. When I pass away in a few decades, I want to pass on my Model01 in its proper case - as described above - to my children. Because that’s how I imagine a family heirloom should be passed on.
+1, I would really appriciate a carry case. I don’t use the stands but would throw money at a model 01 case in a heartbeat.
We got some photos back from the case factory last night.
This is the work-in-progress prototype. If things go well, we may offer it for sale later this year.
love it love it love it
+love for the prototype.
I am interested as I am carrying mine back and forward on Monday/Friday.
I am trying to convince myself I need a 2nd Ki/o01 for home, I am trying to resist and wait for an 02. I hope to have one without the wood enclosure as the design is a little too showy for work.
Well, I just ordered a second keyboard so I wouldn’t have to transport and risk damaging it, so don’t need one now.
Any updates on the travel case? I am still quite interested.
We’ve gotten a second sample and requested a few more changes. But we’re getting close.
I found an old crumpler hymm book case for a 17" laptop which is working quite well!
I cant fit the tenting kit in so I have abandoned my plan to start them for the time being.
I’ve travelled with my keyboard for the first time this week. I’ve found out that a bag would be very handy indeed. I’d also use it as a dust cover as well at other times.
step 1: addict customer to properly designed keyboard
step 2: sell them a carrying case because they are spoiled and won’t use a traditional keyboard
joking aside, I’m very into this and can’t wait for it to go on sale.
Status update: we’ve got a golden sample and pricing. We’re checking on shipping logistics now. Current guess at ETA is ‘before black friday’
Would we be able to buy directly from the web page or is there a preorder?
There will be a preorder. Likely a mini-kickstarter. We’ve started the prep for it.
Is the Kickstarter ready for public consumption? Any updates on cost and ship dates?
It isn’t yet. Rest assured that we’ll tell you as soon as we’re ready
The wait is…almost over.
We haven’t uploaded the video yet, but the campaign goes live tomorrow morning.
If you want to get a sneak peek at the travel case (or to help us proofread), you can find the Kickstarter campaign preview page here:
Can’t wait to back it! One question though, it looks like the case doesn’t fit the octopus stands – is that accurate?
