A best-case scenario for the Stylophone Gen X-1

 I hadn't played my Gen X-1 for quite some time. When I took it off the shelf recently, I found that it wasn't working as well as it should. The keyboard had become dirty just from being exposed to household air and dust. I cleaned the metal keyboard and stylus to get it working again. But I decided it would be best to not openly display it on the shelves where I keep my Stylophone collection if I still want to be able to play it for years to come.

Fortunately, dubreq now offers a carrying case for Gen X-1.  I am not sure when it was launched, but the case is now available on Amazon, so I ordered one and just got it a couple of days ago. 

Like the case for the S-1, this case is made from a semi-rigid foam material. It's embossed with the Stylophone logo, has a zipper, and a nylon fabric handle. It's made to perfectly fit the Gen X-1 and has enough extra space to store some cables and spare batteries.

It's a simple but perfect product for storing a Gen X-1 or transporting it to a gig. If you have a Gen X-1, check out this case. It would make a cool Christmas gift for yourself or any Stylophone enthusiast in your life.
