Thanks SKB for Keeping My Keyboard Kids Safe!

June 2, 2014

A few years ago on New Year’s Eve, we were playing the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA on the top deck. The Queen Mary is an old ship and getting equipment on and off using small elevators and very narrow stairwells is a challenge. At the end of the evening when it was time to leave the ship I strapped my keyboards and a small P.A. to a small dolly and proceeded down the stairs one at a time when the dolly tilted sideways and everything went crashing down two flights of stairs. My speakers suffered severe damage but my keyboard kids and the cases were completely fine, just a few scratches on the exterior of the cases. This made me a true believer in SKB Cases.

"Taking my keyboards on the road or local gigs without my SKB cases and soft cases would be like taking a baby in the car without a car set, it will NOT happen." Thank you for making a wonderful product to protect my gear.

Salo Loyo,
Luis Miguel and No-Pals.
