DJ Case - A small overview
It doesn't matter whether you're a DJ in your spare time or whether you've turned your hobby into a job: the right equipment is what counts. Not only the right mixing console and a high quality turntable, but also a solid DJ case are part of the equipment. Here we present to you what you should pay attention to when choosing a suitable DJ case.
DJ Case Size & Co. What to look for in a case for DJ equipment
Generally speaking, the DJ case is a sturdy case in which all the important DJ's essentials can be stored in a space-saving way. The classic case is usually made of light metal, such as aluminium, but combined models, some of which are made of chipboard, can also be purchased. Inside, the case is usually fitted with a foam lining.
DJ Cases are available in different sizes and are selected depending on their purpose. While some models are so compact that they only offer enough space for CDs and records, others are so large that entire mixers can be placed in a case or turntable. A Set Flight Case offers space for a complete DJ set. This can be either a flight case for a set consisting of 2 CD or media players in conjunction with a DJ mixer or a set of 2 turntables and a mixer. With a Set Flightcase, the complete DJ equipment for the next party is accommodated in a single flightcase.
It is important that the model can be securely closed and is shock-resistant from the outside. This is the only way to ensure that the content does not suffer any damage. The case offers additional protection if it is lined with foam inside.
For easy transport, a DJ case should be equipped with sturdy handles that make carrying easier. It can also make sense to choose a model with castors that can be pulled easily - even if it weighs several kilos.

The Case Rack - what is it exactly?
The Case Rack is a good alternative if you are looking for flexibility. Nowadays, DJs often need to be able to call up their equipment at short notice and be able to move their equipment quickly from one place to another when they are booked. Here it is a good idea to store the most important items of his set-up in a practical case rack.
Cases with a complete DJ set are just as popular. In these forms, two turntables or CD/Media players and a mixer as well as utensils and important CDs are safely stored in them.
This is a combination of rack and case - it's not only compact, but also offers optimum wearing comfort and plenty of storage space. The individual components of the set up are therefore already assembled and only have to be transported to the place of installation. Some racks have a fold-out DJ table, on which you only have to place your turntables and turntables. Which one you choose as a DJ depends on your individual requirements. It can also make sense to buy a high quality DJ case as well as a case rack to be prepared for all eventualities.
DJ Case buying guide: What must be considered before the purchase
Before deciding on a certain DJ flightcase or case rack, you have to ask yourself a few questions in order to find out which transport instrument is the right one. For example, it matters how often you want to transport your equipment and how stable it should be. Trolleys with castors are usually the better solution, especially for longer distances, because they can be pulled easily.
Sometimes you don't want to take your complete equipment with you, but only a few records from one place to another. Also the size of a DJ case should be chosen accordingly.
Last but not least, whether you choose a DJ case or a case rack - the respective transport instrument should be stable, of high quality and above all as resilient as possible, so that it can ideally be used for several years. It is worthwhile to compare different models before you buy them in order to find a suitable companion.
