Gear bag/transporting everything?
« on: July 19, 2018, 08:34:26 AM »
I was wondering what some of you guys use to protect and transport your gear to and from shows. I'm sort of trying to fit everything into a backpack (which I have). Using a zoom F8, Nakamichi CM-300s including the shotgun capsules, which are the biggest challenge for me to figure out how to transport. I'm looking at this Amazon case AmazonBasics Hard Camera Case - Small https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01L0LVDJO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_1niuBbNCXTM1G to house the recorder and possibly the mics, and thinking of just making a couple PVC tubes to protect the CP-4 shotgun caps. Any better ideas anyone has used? Was also considering just getting a couple zipper pouches to carry the mics along this cables, mounts, other capsules, batteries, etc.

I have a friend that uses poster tube to transport the CP4 caps!!  Cheap, water proof, and durable.

The poster tube is the way to go to transport the shotgun capsules

A lot of people like this Amazon Basics camera bag https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Large-Gadget-Orange-interior/dp/B00CF5OHZ2/ref=sr_1_1_acs_sk_pb_1_sl_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1532023383&sr=8-1-acs&keywords=basics+camera+bag

I use a couple different bags -

a Petrol Pegz2 - it's discontinued but the medium version of this one is pretty much the same - https://www.amazon.com/Sachtler-SN607-Small-Lightweight-Audio/dp/B016M0RP8Q/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1532023720&sr=1-1&keywords=sachtler%2Baudio%2Bbag&th=1

a Canon DSLR bag - it's just like the Amazon Basics bag above just more expensive

A Lowepro giant ass bag - not sure what the model is but it holds my four channel audio rig, two preamps, batteries, cables and my Nikon DSLR. It's old, but it's basically an older version of this one https://www.amazon.com/Lowepro-Magnum-200-Shoulder-Black/dp/B002I9OBQA/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1532024059&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=lowepro%2Baw%2Bbag&th=1

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone. Some nice bags here, and nice idea to carry the shotguns in a poster tube.

I've been using this bag for years, I think since it first came out.  The only thing that has worn out is one of the internal velcro patches between the inner and outer lids.  This is non-functional anyway.

One great thing about this bag for our purposes is that the side pockets are perfectly sized to hold a SuperClamp.  The small tablet pouch inside is also great for a thin USB battery.  Plenty of room in the main compartment for my DR-70D, PCM-M10, FP-24, and a couple mic mounts.  Front zip is where I keep my mics in an Otterbox cigar case.

I use a soft-side fishing tackle bag by Rapala. I've been using it for 20 years or so. It was intended to hold a set of segmented plastic lure/tackle boxes.  When those were removed (Sarge immediately bagged them for her beading collection), it left an empty open shell on the inside.  I then fitted it with a Target shelf rack (remember those?), and, many many concerts recorded since then.

Thanks for the suggestions on how to use the bag.  I don't have a superclamp but a regular one so that'll easily fit in the side pocket.  Also, I hadn't thought about using the tablet pouch for a thinner USB battery.  Still trying to figure out what 4-channel deck I'll go for when running open but this bag will give me plenty of room for everything by the sounds of things.  :)
