New Sound Series gear bags from Arriba Cases are designed specifically to fit some of the most widely used audio equipment, providing cost-effective protection against loss and damage.
The black nylon material that makes up the exterior of Sound Series bags is attractive yet durable. Inside 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 during transport.
Additionally, Sound Series bags 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.
New Sound Series options include:
—AS-171 – Deluxe Tripod Bag. Can transport and protect up to two standard loudspeaker tripod stands. It has a large zipper opening for quick and easy removal of the stands. Measures 43 x 6 x 6 inches (1092 x 152 x 152 mm); MSRP is $48.95.

“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.”
