I am looking for a road case for my Wurli 200A.  Anyone have any recommendations?

I bought one from Island Cases on a well-known online auction site.  (http://www.ebay.com/itm/ATA-GLIDER-Case-RECESSED-WURLITZER-ELECTRIC-PIANO-/230670527845).

Used to be 150, but 180 isn't too bad if your piano is worth $1000 or more. 

Nice thing about it is the lower half is just a shallow tray, so if you don't care about setting up a sustain pedal (or don't have one), you can just set the road case up on a keyboard stand, remove the lid, and you're ready to go!

The piano sits on some foam pads and I keep a right angle cord in the aux out.  Have gigged and toured the crap out of this case, it is pretty sturdy and light.  Not flight-worthy, but it is doing the job just fine.

Also, I ditched the cheap wheels and webbing, I think rolling the thing on pavement is asking for vibration and shock-induced trouble inside the piano.  I added a couple of inexpensive amp-style strap handles to one of the long sides and it works great.

Mine looks like this:

I can't play the piano in the bottom part, but that's ok.
For gigging around town and storage at home I bought a Soundwear Stagebag. It's ridiculously expensive, considering that soft bags can be had for €35 too, but also ridiculously good. Also, it has a little extra space to fit pedal, legs, an active DI and a couple of cables – and saves a lot of my energy  8)
