Any new DJ bags?

Post by mersault » Wed Nov 18, 2009 3:14 pm

I'm looking for a new DJ bag. I no longer need to fit my awkwardly shaped APC40 since I last searched for a new bag. Anybody have any suggestions? Something that can be traveled with? --- though not necessarily checked in. ...more as a carry on.

I know the mono 365 - which I'm leaning towards, Namba, and headliner... can anybody suggest something off the beaten path though? Must be somewhat sturdy and protective!

I'm not a DJ but I just travelled with my APC40 and Launchpad for the first time and my old Novation X-Station 25 bag actually holds both of them perfectly!

I just bought this yesterday for my APC40, Laptop, Uberstand, FW1814, CABles(usb, fIREWIRE, aUDIO)
, Power supplies, etc.. check it out.. Its the Targas Roller notebook case, and it has wheels, and is really portable & way cheaper then the Monocase, Namba bag.. It was onsale for $70 at Staples, but looks like it usually sells for $100...

I recently bought the MONO 365 and it's great. Fits my MBP, APC40, headphones, Traktor Scratch setup all simultaneously, and securely.

It gets my vote.

i still have an very old UDG bag...

if it falls apart i would buy myself a little coffin/bag type-o-thing on wheels that does NOT look anything remotely like it contains DJ / technical gear.

just my2cents.

i hate the fact that with a UDG for example you are spotted wherever you go with it as a DJ 100 miles against the wind.
makes me often feel uncomfortable and raises in a lot of areas the possibility of a mugging...

the girl next door is not that wrong... i know to many people being mugged for gear, if you run around like a glow stick (like me, my bag is bright yellow, big mistake that was... OK, i like funky colours, but because it's UDG it's obvious what's in the bag, bad idea!)

I couldn't agree with you more SubFunk- I think some of the choices out there are a little to conspicuous. Its a good point that nobody ever seems to mention. The Mono bag, Namba bag, etc. all look a little too much like they might be carrying something "special" - Walking through certain NYC neighborhoods, I prefer to maintain a low profile.

On that note, I looked at the Samsonite® Pro-DLX 2 Medium Computer Backpack.

or the Gator G-MEDIA PRO BP - both are less assuming than some of the other ones.

yup, i recently have seen a very suitable model from 'eastpak' as well (one of those you can even use as a backpack or with the wheels, very handy!)... don't know the name... but you can even remove the name label, as it was not embroidered... that is the kind of thing i am looking for right now... there are plenty of cases that have good compartments and dedicated laptop cushioning... and look totally dull and unsuspicious not like you move electronics worth 2000-3000 euros and more around...

i personally would never buy something like the ableton branded bags and rub someone right in the face '2000 euro laptop plus soundcard, etc. inside'
OK i bought the UDG bag at times i still used to spin vinyl only... but our days it's a bad idea.
