I have one for my Subsequent and my son has one for his Monologue. They’re really good. Currently they only make 3 DSI/Sequential covers: P6/OB-6 and (I think) Toraiz. I did email them a couple of weeks ago to ask if there were any plans to make one for the Pro 2 and they said they are “reviewing the DSI line” (whatever that means). They’re actually quite local to me too.

I have one for my D05 and my Microbrute. They are nicely made, though I realize now the Microbrute one makes it hard to include with the original box when selling (I'll be selling mine soonish).

I'm thinking of springing for a Stardust cover for my OB-6D, though. It can't be accidentally broken. Sliced, I suppose, but even then that's reparable.

I use Digital Deck Covers' black quilted cotton dust covers for my instruments.  They're great.  What's the purpose or advantage of the Decksavers, other than the visibility of the instrument?

I bought one for my OB 6 and returned it, I think it'd damage the wood because it was too tight.
I have 2 for my 2 Yamaha refaces and for those are Ok imo

It’s the same with all of them to be honest as the original boxes and inserts for the synth are moulded to fit the instrument. One could perhaps cut the polystyrene inserts to make the cover fit.

I use their vinyl covers for a few of my instruments, though I've switched to Gator cloth ones more recently. They're obviously a little more variable in how well they fit, but the savings are pretty significant.

They are hard plastic so afford much more protection should anything fall or het spilled onto it.

A bit more should anything fall, but since they usually cover just the top, they don't provide more protection against spills than nylon, vinyl, or leather covers.

The Digital Deck Covers are so much better, even though they're only thick cotton or nylon.  They cover the entire instrument, including the sides, front, and back - everything except the underneath.

They do look good. It’d get costly for me with import duty to the UK though.

Then hurry up before you're no longer in the EU:

Ironically that may end being cheaper (not that I’m holding out hope of any kind of trade deal with the USA). To be honest the whole situation is farcical and depressing in equal measures. I have children in mainland Europe and it’s going to cause all manner of problems for us.
