For a such an expensive and critical piece of audio equipment, live sound mixers take a lot of abuse. They’re moved and jostled. Every jack gets plugged and unplugged over and over. Beverages and food constantly loom from above. Without proper protection, even the most solidly built mixer will eventually suffer damage under these conditions. Unless you enjoy hauling your mixer back and forth to the repair shop, investing in protection for your mixer is a no brainer.
If you do any amount of mobile sound mixing, whether it's doing festival sound or DJing weddings, you need a proper case and cover for your mixer. Get yourself a decent mixer case and enjoy a long, illustrious career as a live sound mixer. We have hard side and padded cases for even the smallest mixers. In addition to protecting your investment, it's convenient to be able to sling your DJ mixer over your shoulder and head out. Many of our mixer cases also come with great safety features such as heavy duty handles and built in caster wheels.
Perhaps quick set up and tear down is your main concern. Very often event sound systems have to be up and running quickly in the morning, then torn down in the evening and hauled off to storage equally fast - every single day for the duration of the event. No problem! We carry a selection of great live sound mixer bags that provide superior protection while you're in transit, and quickly snap apart to expose all your cable connections upon arrival. We also have options with water resistant shells in case you're doing a lot of outside work. These mixer cases will turn your operation into a finely tuned machine.
Even if you're not carting your mixer all over town, it pays to think about protection. There is a lot of activity happening around a venue in close proximity to your mixer. You will extend the life of your mixers by taking some basic precautions and keeping dust and other debris off of your board. We have a great selection of cloth and plastic mixer covers to protect your live rig from liquid, dropped items, and dust - including exact match covers for many popular brands as well as universal cloth covers in many sizes.
If you have any questions about choosing the right case or cover for your mixer, don't hesitate to give us a call. Our friendly and knowledgeable Sales Engineers will make sure you get a case that fits and suits your mixer - whether you're mixing outdoor festivals or just trying to keep hummus out of your faders.
