I have a J-Station that I've been carrying around in my gig bag for a while. It has got a few scuffs, and I thought it might be nice to get some sort of case or padded bag to keep it from getting scratched. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations.

On a similar note, one thing that turned out to be a great case for when I had a Boss GT-3 was a paintball gun case from Brass Eagle. Cheap and fit perfectly. Maybe I'll use it to store some of my loose pedals.

A laptop case.

Seems a little big for a J-Station. On the other hand, less embarrassing than a padded Pokemon lunch box.

Ha. My former recording partner, and best friend's father made him a case for his Ovation 12 string. It looked like the coffin of a young child. Inside, a cigar box installed for picks and strings. His family was notoriously.... frugal..... the padding inside was styrofoam. Worked fine, but I never carried it around, lol.

A notebook case. Throw a few cables in and the PSU.

Reminds me that I need to find a gig bag for my cigar box guitar. Unfortunately I will probably spend as much on the case as the guitar is worth.
Even if the piano player can't play, keep the party going.
