Sometimes accidents happen or worse– items get stolen and you’ve either ruined or lost your musical gear. There are some steps you can take to ensure your road gear is safe and protected from any damage. A Road Case, also called a roadie case, is built for the specific purpose of protecting musical instruments, lighting equipment or amps. The cases come in varying sizes and can even be custom built for specific groups with custom needs. Musical gear can be quite expensive, so using the cases to protect your items is a good way to keep all your equipment safe.
Amplifier equipment is important for any band, especially when on tour. Amp Cases are a great way to protect this vital equipment. Cases can be customized and come in a variety of sizes and colors. When a band tours using a van to get from gig to gig, it is a good idea to use a dark curtains or piece of fabric to cover the widows in the van to avoid would-be thieves from casing your equipment and stealing it if an opportunity arises. In addition, backing your van up against a wall whenever possible makes it more difficult to gain access to the equipment, keeping it safe.
Keyboards are important equipment and must be kept safe when traveling. Keyboard Cases protect the instrument and come in a variety of types and colors. These cases are both padded and sturdy, and protect the musical instrument when storing them for a long period of time or from damage during travel. There are hard cases and soft covers, or can be custom made, so choosing one depends on what type of traveling you will be doing and if the keyboard is at risk for being banged or hit by other instruments of items while traveling.
Sometimes it is not instruments you need to protect but other equipment. A DJ Case is meant to protect the equipment needed for mixing and playing music at parties or other gigs. Larger cases can handle a variety of mixer and players, and some models even include DJ tables for easier set-up and more flexibility. The cases keep all your equipment safe from bangs and accidents as you travel. You can also leave the equipment in the case to keep it safe and dust free in between uses. Gear cases are a good idea no matter what type of musical equipment you travel with.
