How to Protect Sound Equipment While on Tour Using Blow Molded Cases

Musicians and sound engineers know just how much goes into packing up and preparing for a gig. For concertgoers, all they see is a final product and an amazing show. Most event goers do not see the hours spent loading and unloading equipment back out after the performance. The equipment they use, from microphones, soundboards, and laptop computers, are typically expensive. The equipment is also fragile and can break when exposed to the elements.

Blow Molded Cases

Besides dropping equipment, two other culprits are known to break gear beyond repair. Plastic carrying cases with foam are strong and sturdy enough to carry all your expensive valuables.

Most electronics get hot, so engineers must create events to push out excessive heat. The vents are small, but typically not small enough to prevent dust and dirt from entering. Enough dirt can cause a system failure. If this is the case, you could try to fix the gear by completely opening it up and cleaning it out. When you do this, you run the risk of breaking your equipment and voiding warranty.

Moisture is not a friend of sound equipment. The slightest bit of water inside a laptop can fry the motherboard or crash the hard drive. When this happens, typically, users lose all the data on their computers. If this were to occur before a concert, it could potentially ruin the evening.

Blow Molded Cases

To combat these two problems, you should strongly consider using blow molded cases because they are watertight and dustproof. These cases will protect your gear when traveling between gigs. If you are a band that travels extensively, you will want to consider adding blow molded cases to your equipment lineup.
