    414 MkII--carrying case/bag recommendations?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I'm a die hard 424 MkII and MkIII user, and just got my first 414 MkII. I'm quite impressed by the machine, especially the quality I am getting from such a small package. Thus, I am thinking that it will be a great tool for carrying with me to record rehearsals and other live performances.

    Can anyone recommend a carrying bag or case that the 414 MkII fits nicely into? I am tempted to try the the Gator 15X15 mixer bag which I see on several mail order sites, but it might be cutting it close in terms of size. I have no way of trying one out ahead of time.

    Thanks a bunch.

    I bought hardsided suitcase from the thrift store - probably paid 3 or 4 bucks for it. I bought some foam from the craft store - probably paid 5 or 6 bucks for it. I cut it perfectly to fit my 424mkii. I could drop the thing off a skyscraper and it would probably survive.

    I actually made a very similar case for my external hardrive from a suitcase-style cassette case. I like having my electronics in foam when they are bouncing around in the car.

    When I was using the tascam 4 tracks, I would stuff them in a bookbag. It protected it fine.

    Besides, you can score another 414 for $50. I wouldn't really think too hard about this one.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the suggestions. I found out that the Gator 1515 mixer gig bag is supposed to work for the 414 (per Gator's chart listing each item this gig bag holds). Between that and a regular backpack, I think there ought to be plenty of room for the recorder plus a digital delay pedal, small preamp, reverb pedal, 2 mics + cables, and even a drum machine if need be. I'll find out for sure tomorrow, when the Gator bag is scheduled to arrive at my door. Portable remote analogue recording indeed seems quite plausible

    Cheers,
    Michael
