We love the fact that digital DJing makes you portable. Have party (on back), will travel. So we're always on the lookout for bags that are designed from the start to protect digital DJ gear on the move. The JetPack bag is one such item.
Some of today’s DJ controllers aren’t exactly small, and getting them to and from your gigs safely can present a bit of a challenge. We’ve already looked at the Lil Namba Remix DJ backpack, which is great if you have one of the smaller controllers, but what if you have something that won’t fit in a backpack? That's where the Juju "Magic" DJ bag comes in.
normal laptop bags don’t have spaces for controllers, and if you don’t get a bag that protects everything in it equally, you could end up with broken headphones, a dented laptop, or twisted faders on your controller. Hence the need for dedicated bags, like the Lil Namba Remix Backpack reviewed here.
Whether you jump on planes, drive or walk to your gigs, you need to make sure you protect your digital DJ controller and laptop on the way there. Here are some of the choices you have when choosing your DJ bag, box or trolley.
