    Fits EWI5000 with a little tweak, February 6, 2015

    My first impression: A little heavier than I expected. The quality is very good. Built tough to military standard. It is not a soft case as I expected but it has a hard shell inside. It is more like a suitcase. You have to open the zip and open the case like a suitcase. It even has rubberized soles on the bottom and sides. Includes a strong padded shoulder strap.

    Having said that, this is not a custom tailored case for EWI5000.
    I expected the accessory box would hold the wireless receiver of the EWI5000 but is a tad bit small. But you can store the EWI neck strap, USB cable, the USB charger and some extra cables.

    I expected the EWI5000 to fit like the saxophone as shown in the picture but the EWI mouthpiece is not removable. So the EWI mouthpiece (along with the EWI mouthpiece cover) sits on top of the accessory box . The EWI is not snug fit. Here is where you need to tweak. Place the two small pads on both sides of the EWI mouthpiece and the EWI is secure enough.

    The EWI wireless unit sits at the bottom of the case snug between the velcro-based-pad and the center hub.

    Why 4 stars?
    – Not custom made for EWI5000.
    – Not 100% snug fit but comes close.
    – A bit pricey at $99 for a case.

    Final words: A very nice case for EWI5000 once you set it right. I like it.

    Yep, like everybody else says: great case for an EWI4000s. There’s a hard compartment sized about right for a power adapter; the long outer pocket is a good size for a patch cable, neckstrap, MIDI interface, and the instruction manual; and there are two smaller interior zip pockets I’m using for a 1/8″ plug adapter and some spare batteries.

    The local woodwind tech who repairs my clarinets warned me (before I told him I was using it for an EWI) that he has seen saxes damaged by rolling around free in this model of case, and I believe it. There’s a lot of adjustment you can do by moving around the be-velcro’d foam blocks in the case, but I don’t know if you could get the blocks into a position that’d hold a soprano sax snugly. So they should probably just call this an EWI case and be done with it.

    Fits an EWI 5000s along with accessories great. How does a sax fit? I can’t answer that question because I have an EWI and it works great for that.

    If you need a case for your EWI, this is it. It’s durable with plenty of padding and enough room to hold some other accessories, like the charger, cables and for the EWI 5000, the wireless audio adapter.
