LOS ANGELES – For years, mobile DJ's and entertainers have relied on Arriba Cases to provide affordable, lightweight protection for safely transporting their lighting fixtures from gig to gig, and now, with the introduction of Arriba's new Sound Series gear bags, the same protection is available for their audio gear. Designed specifically to fit some of the most widely used audio equipment, Arriba's Sound Series provides excellent yet lightweight protection against loss and damage that doesn't cost much, but provides great peace of mind.
Arriba's Sound Series consists of three gear bags that, while designed to the specific dimensions of American Audio products, can also be used with similar-sized sound equipment from other manufacturers. The black nylon material that makes up the exterior of each Arriba Case is attractive yet durable and ready to take on the bumps and knocks of life on the road. Inside the case is high-density, shock-resistant foam covered with a soft but resilient synthetic fabric that cradles audio gear, allowing it to fit snugly and comfortably while safeguarding against nicks, scratches and dings. Adjustable padded dividers offer a more customized fit and help prevent gear from shifting around inside the case during transport. Additionally, all Arriba Cases have sturdy nylon webbing carry straps and “view windows” that make it easy to identify the fixtures inside each bag even after they've been packed up, plus they provide a space for personal identification.
Arriba's new Sound Series cases include:
• AS-171 – Deluxe Tripod Bag: This generously sized bag can transport and protect up to two standard speaker tripod stands. It has a large zipper opening for quick and easy removal of the stands. Case size: 43” x 6” x 6” (1092 x 152 x 152 mm); MSRP $48.95.
• AS-175 – Rolling Speaker Bag + Stand Combo: Designed for most 15-inch speakers, this bag combo features wheels and a pull-up handle to make transporting speakers between gigs easy and secure. The included Speaker Stand Bag attaches to the side of the Speaker Bag, which has a large outer pocket for speaker cables and other necessities. Case size: 17.5” x 15” x 27.5”/445 x 381 x 686 mm; MSRP $119.95.
• AS-190 – Midi Controller/Laptop Bag: This bag is perfect for a variety of Midi controllers in several sizes plus it has an extra compartment that fits up to a 17-inch laptop and a pocket to store cables and power adapters. The Midi Controller/Laptop bag comes with extra pads and dividers to provide a customized and secure fit, regardless of the size or brand of Midi controller. The included shoulder strap makes carrying convenient, and the extra strap on the back slips easily over the handle of a rolling bag for added ease of transport. Case inside dimensions: 19.5" x 13.75" x 2"/495 x 350 x 50 mm; MSRP $89.95.
“For years mobile entertainers have been using Arriba Cases for their lighting fixtures, so it was only natural that we expand our offerings to include the same type of lightweight, inexpensive protection for audio equipment as well,” said Brian Dowdle, Marketing Manager for Arriba Cases. “DJ's and mobile entertainers have found Arriba Cases convenient for not only for safe, easy transport, but also for dust-free storage to protect their gear when not in use. Our aim is to have the Sound Series bags function in the same way for their audio equipment.”
