Jon Hammond says, protect your investment in Sk1 Hammond with the custom molded Polyethylene “Polyethylene glycol (PEG)” Flight Case product from Gator Cases

Recommendation from Jon Hammond The GKPE-49-TSA Flight Case for Sk1 Ultra-Portable Organ

Jon Hammond — When you travel with your instruments as much as I do, you want to have a solid protective flight case for your instrument,

for the new Hammond Sk1 ultra-portable combo organ I highly recommend the GKPE-49-TSA Flight Case from a company called Gator Cases.

The fit is nearly perfect, it locks in to place when you close the case and for extra insurance you can put a small additional piece of foam in the small gap:
