After I purchased my Roland stage piano last December I knew I had to get a dust cover for it sooner or later. With the help of a tailor and an embroiderer I had a cover made in 100% cotton and I figured I could share the result here.

Nice job!

This should be an official accessory in my opinion.

Looks great. Is there a drawstring or something under it to tighten it on?

Thanks. Gvfarns, the cover has the same tapered shape (narrow opening) as the piano and that keeps it in place pretty good. But a drawstring would be easy to add. James, yes, I was surprised when I realized that the pianos don't come with a cover. Sure, the pianos are meant to be played but one needs to eat and sleep too ... smile

You eat at and sleep on your Roland?

The action on my Nord is more springy than spongy... it's also only 73-keys, so not a terribly comfortable sleep.

I just had one (very similar) made up (by my mum cool ) for my DP as well. Though i dont have a logo on mine - may be a good way to distinguish front from back.
I had an elastic put under it to tighten it up - an alternative to a drawstring.

73 is really only good for nanna-naps.
Kawai could make covers for their DP's, along with custom stands.

I like those Keywear lycra covers. Obviously, they are nothing as fancy as the custom-made one, but they work to keep the dust out. And they're pretty affordable.

This cover was not expensive either. The embroidery work was only $8 for example.

You face the corner when you play? You have to turn that baby around and have your back to the wall.

I want one for my V-Piano.....at present I'm only using a white bedsheet cry, and I'm no good at DIY or embroidery.

But I'll need one that allows for a couple of (vertical) feet of extra room on either side, where I have my music scores stacked on top of the slab... grin

I can look at getting one made up for you. But, of course, that would mean dropping off your VP at my place for a while. grin

Even better :-) Congratulations to that great deal!

Sounds like a deal grin. But will the tiger sharks get their teeth on my black beauty (like one of them nearly chomped off my leg when I was surfing at Byron Bay) before I can get it to you down under?
