These Cases For Teenage Engineering Pocket Operators Are Sturdy & Transparent

If you want a case that protects your precious Pocket Operator synths but also allows you to appreciate the original design and form factor, these clever and cheap clear cases are for you.

Teenage Engineering's Pocket Operator synths have been a big hit since they first arrived in our... pockets(?) a couple of years back. And their popularity sees no sign of decline with the release of their seventh mini music machine in January 2017, the PO-32 Tonic drum synth.

While Teenage Engineering sell their own sleek black cases for these pocket synths, those wishing to have a more transparent yet rugged case will likely appreciate these cases by Dich Studios. Simply named Pocket Operator Cases, these cheap and cheerful see-through acrylic cases appear well-designed and provide easy access to the battery compartment while safely covering the entire machine.

Note: Thanks to Clayton Brooks for alerting us to these cases on Facebook and for his excellent photography of the cases.
