  • Taking a Stand (bags for stands)

    Anyone using golf travel bags as a mike/speaker stand carrier? I have a cheap purpose built bag that I got mail order a couple of years ago an it's awkward to use and carry so am looking or an alternative.

    Nope, I use a stand bag, it works; mine is about 9" [which is what, a quartermeter? ] too long, but it works...
    What do you find awkward? The handles? Tie a knot in them...
    I kind of would like a shoulder strap for the rare times, like last month, where I had to set up on the beach in Malibu...no way to roll the cart across 75 feet [23m] of sand.

      I use an onstage bag for speaker stands. I also have a gator bag which isn't padded and it's longer.

        It's fine, I use feet and inches too 😎

        The main problem is that it's the end that opens and it's a bit awkward sliding the stands in, especially my guitar stand which I put in as well.

          ah, one of those..is it a drawstring top?
          Mine has a zipper that opens the side, but the ends are closed. They run about $25 US, but I have seen similar ones for around $15 on Amazon.

        Not a drawstring, it's a zip but it's awkward finagling a boom mike stand, guitar stand and a single speaker stand through the opening. I will keep looking.

          yes, you need one with a side opening if you are putting all that in there. Our band rig's Ultimate stands came in an open end/drawstring bag, and although easy to do, it only fits the two stands; I like having the extra entry space and ability to put other stuff into the bag.

            I use Onstage bags for my stuff. They work great and look professional. Golf bags? Not so much. JMHO

              Coming from the world of video production, I was fortunate enough to find a tripod bag along the way. They are prefect for a couple of mic stands and a guitar stand. For speaker stands, I just bungee them together and throw them on a costco folding cart with the PA speakers. Picked up a Husky modular wheeled tool box and between that and the cart, I can move everything easily in a single trip. Dang handy for those long ingress/egress gigs. Thank heavens for disabled entrances....

                So asking a golfing buddy and he said he had a spare bag I could have and last night was the first time I have tried it. Pros it's huge, well padded, has quality wheels, full length zippers for easy access cons it's huge.
                Just too big for me, if I was using a couple of speaker stands or perhaps in a duo maybe, but for little old me it's going to have to be a purpose built one. Mind it does take my iPad holder without taking it off the stand.
                Here are a couple of snaps, I put my slipper in one for scale.

                    ive considered just that for my gong stands. but i have three pieces that are 84 inches long, so... on the other end of the scale, ive been playing flutes on some gigs lately with a small group and carry everything from the car in one trip, and have a free hand... flutes in a shoulder bag, mic/mixer/cables/stuff in a small backpack, and roland cube street ex in one hand... look ma! no stands!
