Dave Smith Instruments Announces Custom Case for Prophet and Evolver
ST. HELENA, Calif. — Dave Smith Instruments has announced a custom keyboard case for their Prophet ’08 and Evolver keyboards. This rugged, ATA-style case is a great way to protect your Dave Smith instruments. Custom made to fit the Prophet ’08, the case is also a perfect fit for the Evolver Keyboard when used with the removable accessory tray (included). A built-in accessory compartment holds the power supply.
According to a company newsletter, “We know some of you have been waiting a long time and we appreciate your patience. The initial sample we received needed a few tweaks, so we went back to the drawing board and came up with something we think everyone will be happy with. The only feature change from the previous announcement is that the final case has no wheels. (We didn’t think they were necessary – Âthe case is very light and maneuverable without them.)”
