How to protect your audio equipment during transportation
For touring musicians and bands, the road holds many surprises. One of the surprises no musician wants to face is damage to audio equipment. Roadies have been known to be a little overzealous when loading, transporting and unloading equipment, but most of the damage to items within musical shipping cases is because of the poor quality of the cases. Mixers, amps, microphones and accessories need to be transported safely. It is better to do this using shipping boxes developed by trusted manufacturers. Most top makers create shipping cases for various sizes of musical instruments and audio equipment. Fortunately, it's very easy to find high quality cases and bags in today's music market. In fact, company like Bespeco and countless others create lightweight bags and cases that are more than capable of protecting your equipment. To keep your audio equipment performing at its best, you need to take care of it when not in use. More expensive boxes and covers are designed with attention to even the smallest components.
Gig bag or case, what to choose?
Gig bags are designed for easy travels. They are made of lightweight waterproof material and often have external pockets. Transporting or storing equipment in a soft case makes it vulnerable. Although bags offer less protection, in some situations they are the best choice. Because they weigh less than hard cases and provide ample storage space for accessories, they are a great choice for short trips with less risk.
The cases have a hard shell. They are shaped to the size of the equipment and usually have small internal compartments for accessories. In some cases, there are also locks for added security. The flight case is built for touring bands and is the most protective case produced today. They are bulky and heavy, and should only be used by musicians who travel often by plane and don’t always have the time or energy to make sure their instrument is packed with care. Expensive cases made of plywood, vinyl, and aluminum, on the other hand, are great for touring but aren’t the right type of case to use when playing around town or storing your equipment at your house. If you're still unsure of your choice, it's better to choose a hard case. After all, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
