I play an EWI. That is, an Electronic Wind Instrument. It is an electronic version of a saxophone. You blow in the end of it and press the keys as if you were playing a real saxophone, and the synthesizer makes it sound like any instrument you want. Anyway, there’s a lot of stuff to carry around to rehearsals and gigs.
This is my second case to try to simplify moving the equipment around. It houses the synthesizer, the instrument, and all the cabling just like my first case project. For this project, I took apart an Alesis TransActive 50 amplifier and installed it in this case so I wouldn’t have to carry around an amplifier in addition to the instrument case.
The whole thing is pretty heavy, so I added suitcase wheels and a retractable handle so I could roll it around instead of lugging it.
