Musicians carry their instruments around in cases and gig bags, so as a DJ or a lighting tech, it only makes sense for you to do the same with your hardware. After all, your visual performance depends on your lights and equipment as much as a rock star's acoustic performance depends on those instruments. Plus, with the high number of individual components in the average effects setup, lighting cases and bags do more than just protect your gear while you're moving it from venue to venue; they also help you sort it and keep it organized, so you'll never have any trouble locating the exact part you need at the moment you need it. Translation? Faster and easier setup and tear-down.
More often than not, the very first thing you set up before a show is the hardware that supports all the lights and effects. So it's as good a place as any to start your search through this selection of lighting cases and bags. Take the On-Stage Stands LSB-6500 Lighting Stand Bag for instance, or the Chauvet CHS-60 VIP Gear Bag. Both of these cases are top sellers, and it's easy to see why: they're lightweight, easy to carry, and they'll make sure your stands stay in good shape even when your van is bouncing along on rough local roads on the way to smaller venues.
Moving on to cases for the hardware itself, you'll find even more enclosures to appreciate. For example, do you like the idea of a wireless lighting system? If so, you'll want to take a look at the Chauvet Freedom Charge 9 Road Case. It's the perfect partner for Chauvet's Freedom Series lights, offering an all-in-one transportation, charging and storage solution that ensures you'll always be ready for the show. Looking for something more versatile to accommodate a wide range of standard fixtures? Check out the Arriba Cases lineup, which even includes a mirror ball bag: the AC-71 12" Mirror Ball Lighting Bag.
From your stands to your lights to all the accessories in between, if you take it to your gigs, then it's worth protecting and transporting in style. The lighting cases and gig bags in this section are more than ready to step in to make that happen, so don't wait any longer to pamper those lights and effects a little. Pack them up in bags and cases like these, and they'll thank you by looking new and performing well for plenty of time to come.
