DJs and mobile entertainers are using more different types of lighting and special effects today than ever before – lasers, LED pars, moving heads, scanners, fog machines . . . and the list goes on. This is creating a need for versatile gear bags that will fit more than one type of mobile lighting fixture, while being affordable, lightweight, and strong and sturdy enough to protect your lights as you travel from gig to gig.
Two soft-shell gear bags from Arriba Cases, the AC-115 and AC-125, have proven to be versatile workhorses, as together they can accommodate more than 75 different American DJ mobile lighting fixtures! Measuring 9.5” x 9.5” x 13”(241 x 241 x 330 mm), the Arriba AC-115 can fit ADJ’s top-selling Galaxian laser series, as well as the Jelly Fish, Dual Gem LED, Jewel LED, Vio Moon LED, Sunray LED, X-Series and many more. The Arriba AC-125, which measures 13” x 13” x 14”(330 x 330 x 355 mm), can house lights ranging from the 64 LED Pro and PROPAR Series par cans, to classic-design fixtures like the Aggressor TRI LED, to the popular Revo LED moonflower series. Another feature that makes the AC-125 extremely versatile is that comes with an adjustable padded divider which allows two smaller fixtures, such as the Fog Storm 1200 HD fog machine, to fit within the case. In addition to working with American DJ products, both the AC-115 and AC-125 can be used with lights from other major manufacturers as well.
“When you have gear bags that can fit a wide range of fixtures, it eliminates the need to purchase custom cases for each light or many cases of different sizes,” said Brian Dowdle, Marketing Manager for Arriba Cases. “This can be a big money saver, especially today when the average DJ’s toolchest contains a wider variety of lighting fixtures than ever. With versatile bags like the AC-115 and AC-125, if you’re taking a couple of lights to a gig, you don’t have to go to the expense or trouble of having a different case with different dimensions for each. You can just pack them in your AC-115s and AC-125s and hit the road.”
Not sure which fixture you packed in which of these one-size-fits-most cases? Not to worry -- the AC-115 and AC-125 have a convenient feature that allows you to tell immediately what’s inside. Both cases are equipped with large “view windows’ that allow you to quickly identify the fixtures in each bag, so there’s no guesswork.
Great for mobile DJs, karaoke rigs and working bands, the AC-115 and AC-125 feature a padded interior with a high-density foam that conforms to the fixture inside, holding it securely in place during transport. Constructed of sturdy, attractive high-denier nylon with strong nylon webbing, the bags are extremely lightweight and portable, and come with convenient carry straps.
With their extra-wide zipper openings, the Arriba AC-115 and AC-125 are designed to make life on the road easier for mobile entertainers and DJs by allowing quick removal of the gear from the case. Both cases also have secure zipper pockets in front, ideal for storing extra lamps, cables, clamps and other accessories, keeping everything needed in one place and eliminating the need for separate bags just for the accessories. Not only are the Arriba bags ideal for use in transit, they also make great storage cases, keeping fixtures secure and dust-free when not in use.
Arriba Cases are also designed to be “light” on mobile entertainers’ budgets. The Arriba AC-115 has an MSRP of $39.95, while the Arriba AC-125 carries an MSRP of $45.95.
