The velvet is pretty darn snazzy, though. Nice job on that one! Love the blue piping. :-)

Probably laying the duck over the keyboard, however, would be bad idea ... they tend to bite, and I have seen many keyboards end up for sale second hand with various "mallardies" from bill biting on the plastic. Just sayin. You can really fowl up a keyboard by using a duck as the covering!
I have so much MIDI gear it would warp your soul.

Exactly why I went for the quality custom cover instead. I was sick of covers yellowing with age.

I just got a package from Bulgaria... ! What an absolutely stunning custom made cover!! I had Jordan place the logo patch dead center (as opposed to the left side bottom) and it looks amazing. Thanks Francois ;)

Glad you like it. Another endorsement then ;)

I like the cover so much that I'm having more made for other synths !

Hi All,

I guess a ‘group purchase’ really only helps those of us in the U.S. Please let me know if you would like to order one, and I’ll contact the person to see what we can do.

cheers,
john

I'd be interested as well John, and I liked the idea of the logo moved to center jaykeel

Well, there’s the problem - some like the logo in the middle, some like it in the corner.

Picky, picky.
I want a cover as it adds protection, sure I want JBowen and Solaris written on it, but we're not running for office here.
How much and when is what concerns me, and this will be the first time I ever bought anything from Bulgaris, so to me that';s kind of exciting, as it's nice to see somewhere in the world small businesses popping up.
I wonder if they have an IRS and 500 pages of regulations to read.
Is it OSHA and ANSI certified......?
Does the developer employ handcicapped people, Eskimos, and use organic materials that dont; destroy the Earth...?

Just send the damn things.......

I'm sure Jordan would cater for everyone's taste if you ordered 10 and asked for 6 with the logo in the middle and 4 with the logo in the bottom corner !

Personally, I prefer the bottom corner look....but I hesitate to have some in stock of either design that may or may not ever sell....it seems a custom order for each person is going to be the best way to go.

If I order 10, I think I’d pick the bottom corner version - but I need to hear from more Solaris owners your preference!!

Whatever you buy is what I will use JB.
I live in the desert where dust finds it's way into everything, if it sloves that problem you can put the logos upside down for the audience as far as Im concerned.

I can send you my money before or after, my better half won't quack over 100 bucks....
If she does, I'll just let her spend her spend an extra Benjamin during one of her many Retail Therapy Sessions at the Forum Shops....
