DJ Cases and MaterialsMarch 26th, 2012 | Posted by in SBH Corp
Looking at new DJ cases for your gear can be exciting, but you have to really take into account the materials that it is made out of. There’s a lot to choose from, a higher quality materials mean more money will be spent, but in the long run it could be a good investment.
Plastic and nylon DJ cases are the most common because they are cheap but reasonably durable. The plastic it is made of is a hard plastic, one that shouldn’t crack if dropped. Still, there’s always the chance you can run into some problems with these, so it is good to put lower end equipment in here, just in case.
If you want to be really fancy and protect your more expensive equipment, a wooden case is a great way to go. It’s more expensive, but wood can really hold together well. It also just looks very cool and will make you stand out when you travel to your next gig. It’s more heavy duty overall and will withstand more wear and tear, so if you are taking your gear out a lot, than this may be the route to go.
Whichever you choose, make sure the inside of your cases are lined properly with felt, to keep everything safe and avoid scratches.
