These new cases, like all cases in Arriba's line, are designed to provide excellent yet lightweight protection for fixtures at an affordable price, and are also great for keeping lighting gear clean and dust-free during storage.

In addition to the specific American DJ lighting fixtures noted above, the new Arriba cases, like the company's entire line, can also be used with fixtures of similar dimensions from other major lighting manufacturers.
“Mobile entertainers are using a wider variety of lighting fixtures than ever before, thanks to the incredible array of products available today,” said Brian Dowdle, Marketing Manager for Arriba Cases. “The introduction of new categories of products such as LED bars, â€˜micro' lasers, flat par cans and more has created the necessity for protective cases for these fixtures. Arriba Cases is keeping up with these developments, and mobile entertainers and DJ's can feel secure in knowing we are committed to providing gig bags that protect their biggest investment.”
Like all Arriba Cases, the seven new cases feature the lightweight durability Arriba has become known for. Inside the durable black nylon exterior is high-density, shock-resistant foam covered with a soft yet durable synthetic fabric that cradles the lighting fixtures and allows them to fit snugly and comfortably, safeguarding them against nicks, dings and scratches. Many of the cases come with padded dividers that offer a customized fit and prevent the contents from shifting during shipping and transport. The “wide mouth” design of the main zippered opening allows for the quick and easy removal of the gear inside, and the exterior design of the cases enable fixtures to be safely stacked without being boxed, saving valuable transport space in cars and vans.
“Not only are Arriba Cases the perfect solution to keep your lighting equipment protected during transport and dust-free during storage,” Dowdle adds, “but DJs and musicians have found Arriba Cases convenient for carrying their extension cords, DMX cables, or as an all purpose gig bag to haul all the extra items entertainers use to make their shows the best they can be!”
Besides being secure and functional, Arriba Cases are also attractive, with a multicolor cube design and the Arriba name embroidered in white on the black fabric. Sturdy nylon web straps make carrying lighting fixtures easy and secure. A convenient “view window” allows for identification or a description of the contents to be readily visible. Each case also features an interior zippered pocket for storing clamps and other accessories.
