DJ Case vs. DJ Bag - Advantages and disadvantages
The difference between case and bag lies not only in the weight, but also in the robustness that a case can bring to bear on a bag. A DJ case is robust, durable and protects reliably against scratches, bumps and shocks. The purchase price is a little bit higher and the weight of course also has an effect. However, if you want to protect your equipment in the best possible way, especially during longer journeys and tours, a flight case is the optimal choice.
A DJ bag is the lightweight version and protects your gear when you tour from club to club. Apart from the optical advantages, a DJ bag is above all lighter and cheaper. You can also transport more accessories at the same time and everything is easier to carry. The catch is, however, that the protection can't compete with a real case. If things get really tough, a DJ bag can never protect a case.
The flexibles - cases in all variations
A case offers another advantage. They are available in all imaginable forms, combinations and designs. For example, a DJ trolley case with wheels and extensible hangers is much easier to create than a DJ bag.
It can also be used to create a DJ case with a laptop tray, which is almost impossible to do with a bag because of its stability.
And then there are complete DJ workstations with which you can add a mixer and a laptop to your DJ in addition to 2 record or CD players. All in one case, mind you.
